friday five | food diary.

Friday. You are back. And we love you.

If you’re like us, you’re always looking for new restaurants to try over the weekend. Need suggestions in Atlanta? Look no further.

1. C&S Seafood + Oyster Bar: J took cover here Monday night during a legit monsoon and stumbled upon one of the most delicious shrimp cocktails (and actual cocktails) ever.

2. Joey D’s Oak Room: We’ve suggested them before. For a reason. If you’re looking for really GREAT food every visit, Joey D’s is your spot. I mean how delicious does that sandwich look?

3. Home grown GA: Homegrown came HIGHLY recommended by J’s coworker, Bill, mainly because of their award winning sloppy joe. The best part is that the sloppy joe is… wait for it… VEGAN. And amazingly delicious.

4. American Food + Beverage: L and I gave this new Buckhead Atlanta spot a try when she was in town a few weeks ago. LOVE it. Going in for round 2 tonight with some girlfriends. Boiled peanut hummus is definitely on the agenda.

i promise to get a great photo of this tonight, but in the meantime one from @ATLFoodSnob.

5. Turner Field: Okay so this may not be a restaurant BUT the Braves are playing the Cubs in Atlanta this weekend. Take in the game. Share some patriotic dippin dots with your love, but not the wine of course.

J:

Mercy mercy mercy. Friday is finally HERE.

I’ve been sifting through recent iPhone photos and realized I’ve been hoarding #foodpics and resto recommendations. For shame. Let’s catch up, shall we?

The Silver Moon | Lake Oconee: L and I had a girls getaway at Lake Oconee a few weeks ago and shared the most delicious fresh shrimp. It was photo-worthy obviously.

*Note: You may have trouble finding this gem of a restaurant because their sign simply says “Bar and Grill” so keep an eye out.

JCT Kitchen & Bar | Atlanta: You probably saw this gorgeous sight on our instagram page, but I had to give more info because it was THAT good. Steak tartare with a side of fried corn on the cobb. {not pictured MOMO sauvignon blanc}

Joey D’s Oak Room | Atlanta: Keeping with the steak theme… Sometimes a great steak is exactly what you’re looking for. Look no further than Joey D’s Oak Room! Conveniently located across from Perimeter Mall with a bar you MUST see to believe.

Gino’s East Pizzeria | Chicago: After dining here on my last two trips to Chicago, I definitely need to share the best deep dish in town. Gino’s East is exactly what they say it is… legendary. Can’t make it to Chicago? Gino’s will ship a pie directly to your door. #dangerous

Smith & Wollensky | Chicago: Exactly what a crab cake should be… crab. To die for. And highly recommend dining al fresco.

say cheese.

Oh my heart… It’s National Cheese Day. No secret that L and I live off of formaggio {And vino. Feeling very Italian right now.}

I came across this handy pairing guide and had to share. Could be fun to host a wine + cheese tasting for your next girls night!

The Glitter Life cheese pairings

these a few of my favorite things.

And now for my favorite cheese joke: What did the melted cheese say to the unlucky tortilla? Man, it’s Nacho day!

ZING!

friday five | going green.

J: My friends Maggie, Mary and I decided to take our girls night to the Atlanta Botanical Garden this week. Amazing decision. We cruised (while sipping wine, of course) and admired the super impressive sculptures. Love being a tourist in our own city. Here are my top five moments from the night:
