I was so impressed by Gusto!’s clean, bright restaurant, creative menu & incredible service. Plus an Avocado Wings Wall is pretty hard to beat.
Gusto! was started by a former NFL Quarterback on a mission to revolutionize the fast food industry & serve better for you food with great service. Incredible grain bowls, salads, wraps & FREE sweet potato chips… I’d say your mission is accomplished Gusto!
As I bellied up to this delicious farro bowl with sautéed veggies & chicken I was surprised to learn they have only been open for about a month! If you’re looking for a good hearty grain bowl, salad or sandwich, recess is the place for your organic blends. They are located in Krog Street Market, which has tons of other fun restaurants & little shops you can walk around and see.
West Egg Cafe:
Start your day with the most delicious breakfast at West Egg Cafe
. They have an incredible brunch menu featuring banana bread french toast, crab omelets & avocado toast. I inhaled this spinach salad with bacon, goat cheese & 2 fried eggs with a side of cheese grits of course because I’m in the south. 😉
4 River Smokehouse BBQ:
If you didn’t know, BBQ is my favorite kind of food & I love you Washington, but you just don’t do it like the south. Whenever I make my way to the southern states I always try & find me some good pulled pork, Mac & cheese, and corn bread. 4 rivers smokehouse checked all of my boxes. Friendly staff, simple, delicious menu choices & even an outdoor patio to enjoy your meal.
Try the burnt ends, pulled pork, Mac & cheese, sweet potatoes & CORN BREAD. And then call a cart to roll you out of the restaurant.
If we’re talking about Southern Hospitality, this place gets a 11/10. The second I walked in I was greeted by the most smiley girls who immediately started complimenting me and helping me with the menu.
I found this place on instagram (shocker) and was captivated by their overflowing milkshakes.
They serve cheesecake, extreme milkshakes & ice cream/cookie/brownie sundaes!
They even have board games for you to play with friends while you enjoy your sweets. The customer service was so good I will definitely be coming back here on my next visit!
Butter and Cream:
With tons of fun flavors & lively culture, butter and cream is a great stop to grab a refreshing treat. I tried the butter pecan and dark chocolate sorbet!
is probably my all time favorite ice cream shop to visit when I’m in the South. It’s located in Krog Street Market & they have some of the most creative, mouth watering flavors you will ever taste.
Other restaurants that were recommended and on my list, but I didn’t get to try (you can only eat so much in 2 days people) are as follows:
- The Optimist
- JCT Kitchen
- Bar Mercado
- Chattahoochee Coffee Company
