Need a bit of guidance for trip to atlanta

For ESS, ask for the table outside. Would be perfect for you. They have a bocce court right there.

As for Decatur, No. 246 or Leon's would fit your vibe much more than Cakes and Ale (although Cakes and Ale isn't bad).

Charlotte dinner mid-range (i.e. not fancy or $20 entrees and higher)

Taking friends to dinner and want a suggestion for a not overly expensive place, near Elizabeth or nearby...(Carpe Diem and Customhouse too expensive).
Looking for under $20 for entrees. They don't drink alcohol, so that's not an issue.
What are some options for middle price range and good?
The Liberty could work....we can go beyond Elizabeth.

No tapas or small plates.

DC visit in June with kids

Good info.
Perhaps though worth a short summer's evening walk for gelato with the kids...
Perhaps a nice steak to grill?

Our apartment is very close to Union Market. Is this worth a visit?

DC visit in June with kids

Looking forward to 4 days in the city with the family in June. Kids are 11, 9, and 6.
Can you direct me to any recent posts about family friendly good food spots, mostly for lunch and dinner.
We are staying near Union Station and will have a car. We are prepared to take the Metro and walk.
Kids are very interested in DC Cupcakes, so we'll venture to Georgetown one day.
Eastern Market perhaps.
We like Italian (i.e pizza or pasta), burgers, Mexican, Greek.
Thanks and looking forward to being there.

cheap and easy lunch near Lincoln Center or nearby (with teenagers)

I'll be with a group of teenagers tomorrow near Lincoln Center around lunch time.
Anything near for pizza, sandwiches, salads? It's going to be cold so we'll probably want to eat inside.
We can walk towards Columbus Circle and head down 7 Ave.

Probably hit Chelsea Market on Friday or Saturday when we are closer to that area.

How do my plans sound to you?

If you want to leave not hungry, it can be expensive. They serve all small plates and it adds up quickly. Don't remember exact prices but it was expensive.
If I were alone I would much rather go to Decatur over Glenwood Park (where Gunshow is). So much more to eat and more people walking around in Decatur.

How do my plans sound to you?

King and Duke, cakes and ale, and Leon's. yes, yes, and yes.
If you focus on Decatur, MARTA will take you right there. Also you should try 246.
One night take MARTA to midtown and try Empire State South and/or Ecco.

Is there a tasty hole in the wall BBQ joint along or near I85 between Charlotte and Atlanta?

solo dining pre concert Sunday night

I think I'm going with Ma Peche.
Anything not to miss on the menu?
I know it gets updated frequently, but what do they always have that is awesome?

Where in Atlanta is a Super Bowl food party?

What do you mean exactly?
A specific restaurant that hosts a party?

solo dining pre concert Sunday night

I'll be in town in a few weeks on a Sunday night for an 8:30 concert at Carnegie Hall.
I would love a great dinner before, and I'm by myself. So, eating at the bar is probably in order.
Walking distance would be great but I'll hop in a cab too.
Would love to try Perla, Spotted Pig, Ma Peche...to name a few.

Not really concerned about price.

Best of Charlotte

Is Halycon arguably the best in Charlotte?
What are other options for that kind of dinner?
We've been to 5 Church and Harvest Moon.

Driving through Atlanta to Florida

All off of 75 north of the city:
OK Café
Flying Biscuit

Could explore the Vinings area....lots of choices there.

Also checkout Atlantic Station:

Driving through Atlanta to Florida

Tricky because even the good non-chain, quick places can get busy; i.e. Houston's or Local Three (on 75).
Depends on time of day and what you really want.

40th birthday dinner

Ecco, JCT Kitchen, Empire State South, 246, King and Duke, Bocado, Antica Posta, Anis, Sotto Sotto, Cakes and Ale, 4th and Swift, One Eared Stag

All unpretentious (IMHO).

Phillips Arena Dinner

The best place for food close by?? Is distance your defining need?
Or do you mean the BEST food close by?

Near the arena there are many options that are "decent."
Take a look at the Luckie-Marietta district website.

For the "best" food, you'll have to go before or after in another neighborhood....Midtown is close via MARTA, taxi, or car.

Winston-Salem please help

I had a pretty good visit to W-S during a conference this past weekend.
I had my annual visit to Bib's, which was excellent as usual.
Finnigan's Wake was great. Good bar scene, good selections, and pretty good food.
Beer at Foothills was excellent, i.e. Oktoberfest.
There is a new Diamondback Grill location downtown in the Park Building. That was a really good lunch.
Camino Bakery is a good spot. Yummy pastries and decent wine selection.
I ventured slightly away from downtown and had a good time at First Street Draught House.

There is a also a new bar called Small Batch on the corner of 5th and Cherry. Apparently just opened this past weekend with a constantly changing beer menu. Looks cool.

Washington Perk, new grocery store/deli, opened recently on the corner of 4th and Cherry. Great new addition.

Next time would love to check out Sixth and Vine and Skippy's (both closed Monday).
