Sports bar with good food in Atlanta?

Thanks for the suggestions all - Dantanna's was packed so we wound up trying Hudson Grille - also PACKED - then on to Twist. Not a sports bar, per se, but they have TV's so it worked. The food was not very good but the service was so we had a good time!

2 Nights in Atlanta ?

Side note - what do you mean the chef from Craft is cooking at La Pietra Cucina, I hadn't heard that?

Sports bar with good food in Atlanta?

Hi - I will be in Atlanta this weekend for work and am looking for somewhere good to go watch the SEC championship game on Saturday afternoon. I prefer to avoid all of the other "tourists"...love good food and will drink anything from Miller Lite to Opus One. I'm staying in the Buckhead area but will have a car and also am familiar with MARTA. Please help?

Vegetarian and Steak Upscale DFW Restaurant

You could also try Craft. They have several steaks now on the menu, and 20 or 25 vegetable side dishes that are a la carte. I make a meal of the sides when I go there as they are absolutely delicious and there are so many to try. They are not vegan and I would double check with the server in case any have lurking meat.

[Dallas] Restaurant Week Reviews

I agree, I went to Lanny's on Wednesday night, the dinner and wine pairings were absolutely wonderful. Our service was good except that my water never got refilled...a pet peeve...the food was amazing although I would have liked one more entree choice as duck is not a favorite. The poblano risotto was delicious however!

HELP - sports bar with food in Shreveport?

I have bad timing and bought tickets for a concert next Saturday in Bossier City - my boyfriend is a big Final Four fan! where can we go after the concert, probably 9 or 10 pm, to eat some good food and watch the rest of the game? We will be staying in Shreveport. thanks!

DFW visitor-advice for fellow CH?

One more reply if you haven't left yet...Angelo's BBQ in Fort Worth is by far the best in my estimation, you can smell the smoke down the street :) I have to take it with me when I go visit my dad in Detroit. the website is www.angelosbbq.com, delicious, now I want some!!!!

Hill Country weekend...

Cuvee on Main Street was wonderful and actually pretty "cool" for a small Hill Country town when I ate there. I also love the Lincoln Street Wine bar, they have hundreds of wines by the glass and small plates. I hated Hilltop cafe which was recommended by a friend, overcrowded and not worth it to me but I understand it's a classic...Salt Lick BBQ is good but it is BYOB so if you like to have a cold one with your Q you definitely want to go prepared!

Wine bar in Dallas/Ft. Worth?

Hi all - I'm looking for a "romantic" wine bar with decent tapas/snacks anywhere in the DFW metroplex - for a birthday surprise. I don't really want a restaurant but a true wine bar with cozy seating, flights, and food...and nothing packed and trendy like Cru in the West Village. Any suggestions? I have seen references to Severine's in Southlake but their website is down, has anyone been there?

Biscuits 'n Gravy

The Mecca on Harry Hines in Dallas serves the best biscuits and gravy I have had around here. It is a "hole in the wall" classic so don't expect glamour but their breakfasts are supreme. I don't think they are open on sundays so double check if you decide to go.

Dallas Gram visit, need restaurant help!

I agree with the suggestion of Mia's on Lemmon it's near Love Field and yummy Tex Mex - try the brisket tacos. I would also recommend Smokey John's BBQ on Mockingbird near Love Field.
