Taco Cowboy ~ Chef Tom Catherall’s Back In Atlanta With Grit & Grace

There’s a new Cowboy in the Virginia Highland neighborhood of Atlanta. Well…sort of kinda. Taco Cowboy is Chef Tom Catherall’s relaunch into the Atlanta restaurant world. Chef’s backstory as the owner of some of Atlanta’s most popular restaurants, e.g. Goldfish, AJA, Prime, Twist, Shout, Strip, Shucks, Smash and Noche, could very well have been a food reality TV show. Even Chef Cathrall’s newest...

Twelve Eighty Ready For Fall Food Service

Twelve Eighty is ready for Fall Food Service with a divalicious menu.

Recently a few Atlanta food bloggers were invited to a special tasting of the restaurant’s Fall menu offerings. Diva Foodies...

Whiskey Tasting at Bellina Alimentari

Walk into Bellina Alimentari and you quickly get why its motto is La Vita è Bontà” or “food as a way of life.” Even strolling through Atlanta’s Ponce City Market the street or mall view into Bellina Alimentari is a feast of prepared foods, cheeses and imported food items like olive oil and pasta.

A Food Blogger Menu Preview Tasting At Twelve-Eighty

Twelve-Eighty… more than a stop before the arts. Tucked away in the Woodruff Arts Center campus in Midtown Atlanta, fondly referred to as the Village for the Arts, is another type of performance art — the restaurant Twelve-Eighty. The more we get to know talented chefs and restaurants that are creating innovative and divalicious dishes, the more we are convinced this aspect of the culinary world is a combination of art and...

Coffee Passion at Batdorf & Bronson

When did you learn to love coffee? Not the buzz that kept you awake through hours of late night studying or the morning wakeup cup but the way coffee lingers after the last sip? Coffee ‘cuppers’ call this the finish. I call it making the experience last just a little longer. My real journey into coffee-love began when I was at college in Boston. I spent hours in coffee cafes in the Back Bay, Beacon Hill and Cambridge...
