My FOODIE weekend!

 Atlanta has some of the best restaurants in the SOUTH. I absolutely love good food, and a nice drink to compliment it. My husband and I decided to try two restaurants that one of us has not eaten at yet.

On Saturday, we went to FLIP Burger Boutique (no they don't sell clothes) on 1587 Howell Mill Rd. We were in the area and I've been to FLIP before and my husband has not. HE LOVED IT! He tried the Shrimp burger and Sean & I split the Country Fried Chicken burger.

His drink of choice was a martini & then after his meal he had a PATRON MILKSHAKE! I had two sips of it and it was DIVINE!!! My drink of choice was a WATERMELON MOJITO! God help me! I LOVE WATERMELON, and this drink will continue my love affair with this fruit.

Today, we went to the Big Easy Grille & Bar on 1193 Collier Rd. I FELT LIKE WE WERE IN NEW ORLEANS for an Hour & a Half. My husband has been at this restaurant before and I haven't. I fell in love with the atmosphere & the beignets! He had the Alligator Omelet while I had my usual choice for brunch: SHRIMP & GRITS!!!

You all know how I feel about GRITS and this restaurant gets a B+. I will make sure I go to this restaurant during COLLEGE FOOTBALL season because the owner is a LSU grad & Fan! My husband's drink of choice was the Hurricane & I had the Southern B*tch! WHEW! I had to ask God to forgive because that drink was the BOMB! LOL!

Tell me a few restaurants that you like visiting in ATLANTA, and I shall venture out with the hubby & try them!
