Sweet Auburn Bistro opens

We visited the new Sweet Auburn Bistro Sunday evening. It's been open about a month on Auburn Avenue, across from Big Bethel A.M.E. Church. (That's the one whose steeple announces that "Jesus Saves" in huge letters.)

Wayne ordered this plate of fish (whiting) and chips (above) and we started with the "Hotlanta Wings" at right.

The wings tasted like candied chicken, featuring a "coconut-pineapple, pina-colada" glaze. I'll go for the conventional Buffalo sauce next time.

The "chips" accompanying the fish are obviously not the traditional. They are potato chips the restaurant makes and serves as a separate starter, scattered with blue cheese, chopped tomatoes and scallions. Think fish nachos.

The restaurant was out of a good many items on its fairly lengthy menu. Our excellent server Blake blamed a very busy weekend.

Our meal was a mixed success. You can read more in "Grazing" later this week.
