I went to Atlanta for a week. Here is what I did on Day 5, or check out my Atlanta City Guide.
RADIAL CAFE -- The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. They made even average-sounding dishes taste special.
|Chopped Cobb Salad|
|Mom's French Toast (with Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce)|
I never had Strawberry-rhubarb before and it had a sweetness like that of sweet potato.
GEORGIA TECH -- There were lots of Google paraphernalia everywhere because they are filming "The Internship" on campus (starring Owen Wilson & Vince Vaugh). There are Google colors, bikes and lawn chairs everywhere; but alas, no star sighting.

MURPHY'S -- Really great food and service. Give in to the complimentary valet parking because you may not find any otherwise. Again, Jon ordered the better dish. I got the salmon with the mysterious asian greens, which turned out to be just bok choy. Jon got the brisket, and its horseradish mashed potato was AMAZING! I got the big fries because of the novelty factor, but it looks more formidable than it tastes.
|SLOW COOKED SALMON STEAK|
crispy rice cake, orange miso, asian greens
|GUINNESS BRAISED BEEF BRISKET|
horseradish mashed potatoes, roasted carrots, green beans
|BIG FRIES, GARLIC AIOLI|
CACAO -- Cute chocolatier with gelato, macarons, and of course--really expensive chocolate. Beautiful decor and cute salesgirls.
PAOLO'S -- This is a gelato shop, but the gelato wasn't even as good as Cacao's. Also, you must pay with cash!
