I have been slacking on posts lately, so it is time to get back in the saddle.
First off, I am going to sing the praises of Bellwoods Social House.
My buddy Arianne Fielder is heading up the bar program, and has an all-star staff on hand.
I have not had food, but I have been in two Fridays in a row for after-work cocktails…and I am impressed.
Week 1 I had a G and Tea. (Ford’s Gin, Cocchi Americano, black tea, lemongrass, lemon and thyme)
Week 2 was a Kentucky Sundress. I was a little concerned that it might be a girly drink, but Alyssa and Rebecca convinced me it was basically a Manhattan. Very manly. Made with Woodford Reserve, strawberry and rosemary infused blanc vermouth, St. Germain, and orange bitters (with a green chartreuse rinse).
Next time I am going to try the old fashioned. I just always try to order things in a bar that I do not make at home (and I make a mean old fashioned).
They are also doing a really cool shot program with shots and backs inspired by bars from around Atlanta and across the country.
I have not had food yet, but the staff had a great looking Asian noodle and shrimp salad. They really seemed to like it. Other folks seem to like it quite a bit.
Speaking of food, Linds and I had a date night at Kiosco in Marietta. You can see my plate was full. I am a sucker for the Bandeja paisa. We also painted ceramics for the kiln. She won the painting contest. Results (with photos) to come in a later blog.
“I didn’t have buttermilk, so I just poured baking soda into a container of raspberry yogurt. It tasted terrible.”
