I touched on this idea in the self-indulgent, boo-hoo-I'm-leaving-Atlanta editorial I wrote in June, insofar as I said I sure wished I'd had the opportunity to eat at Bacchanalia one last time (alas, the certificate for a complimentary meal never arrived in the mail), but her approach is much more comprehensive and even includes visits to places she's meant to visit, but hadn't gotten around to until now.
The list of places she'll visit on her farewell tour (which includes favorites of her's like Morelli's, Soul Vegetarian, Sublime Donuts, Ria's Bluebird, and Sun in my Belly, and places she's wanted to try like the Optimist Oyster Bar, Gutenfleischer's Vegan Meats) made me think about the places I'd have visited on my tour had I the foresight to plan one. Incidentally, we ate out together a lot, so Ria's (for the Brisket Breakfast), Sun In My Belly (I love their nicoise salad A LOT), and Soul Vegetarian (I could and would drink their salad dressing) would have made the cut.
Additions to my tour: Carver's for squash casserole and collard greens, Mary Mac's (I don't care what anyone says) for fried pork chops, a last Monster Slice with fresh tomatoes and garlic at Cameli's (budget) and a last Gigiotto pie at Antico (splurge), and definitely a final visit to Peter Chang's in Sandy Springs for anything hot and numbing. And I really liked the burgers at Bocado, but that was actually a thing I managed to have before I left. God, their pickles.
So, whatever. Maybe you'll never leave Atlanta to join the circus. But in the interest of exercises in food fun, what spots would be included on your Farewell Tour of Atlanta? And don't be shy. I said Mary Mac's.
Not only that, but I don't see an address listed anywhere. And surely this can't…
I'll second the comment on the gnudi. It was outstanding. Love the wine list, too…
Hey Bliss, you provide the prices for everything but the ramen.
Chateau de Saigon has a 10 page menu.
