Last night, Atlanta's food Twitterati was about more than just pimping cookbooks, discussing Richard Blais' sexy factor, or recapping "The Walking Dead." No, last night several tweets were devoted to the Grammys. Several folks, including @AngieMosier, were aflutter over the Chipotle commercial featuring the "Back to the Start" animated short. The film/commercial includes a Willie Nelson cover of Coldplay's "The Scientist" and takes on the subject of factory farming.

In a recent episode of “T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle,” the rapper squirms as the wife drops her baby fever bomb over dinner at Briza restaurant. Damn, girl, you know you need to save that sh*t for dessert. For more tasty bites of hip-hop drama set within Atlanta’s dining scene, check out the ATL Bite Life blog for more.

Yeah, so earlier this month AJC restaurant critic John Kessler reviewed Ocean Prime restaurant. The usual commenting dialogue began but then things went topsy-turvy when "FoodieATL" weighed in with her positive experience. Turns out, the commenter works for the PR agency promoting the restaurant. Kessler got pissssed and then a former AJC staffer and one-time Kessler colleague, Richard L. Eldredge, took the dialogue over to Atlanta magazine's Covered Dish blog to tackle the whole "transparency" issue. The situation also ended up on the national media site, Oh, and the restaurant got a "Fair" rating, if you're still wondering.
