it had been quite a while since I'd darkened the door of this Atlanta institution. Luckily, I know the routine. Make a reservation and then prepare to wait an hour after that. I went with the Get Delicious supper club. And there are a few of us. We all made separate reservations to simplify things. it worked out well. I understand that standing in the crowded bar area while the tempting aromas waft around , could make one crazy with anticipation. But come on, Atlantan's love to wait around to be fed. I adore the atmosphere, the waitstaff and the food. I will concede to the fact that some of the entrees seem a bit overpriced. But, everything I have ever had is amazingly good. It evens out. I love the pickled veggie starter. And OMG the bread. I rubbed some on my wrist so that I could enjoy the smell later. I had a half order of the Ravioli Pomodoro which is ravioli filled with goat cheese, dill, herbs, cooked in fresh chopped tomatoes, artichokes, garlic and basil. It was AMAZING. Filling, but not too heavy and tasty as hell. My companions had the Linguine with clams, Eggplant Parmesan and the Lasagna. Everyone was thrilled with their choices. The portions are pretty large and I like to save room for dessert. Luckily they offer half portions. How thoughtful. I had the cannoli and Ms.M the tiramisu. Mine was a bit disappointing. It was only filled at the ends. My plate was covered in the intended pastry innerds. It was good but way too runny. I can't speak on the tiramisu, I just am not a fan. Malia cleaned her plate ,so I'd bet it was good. My companions also enjoy their wine selections. I also don't drink wine. But, next time I'll skip dessert and try the booze. Good times were had by all. Definitely a fine place for a date. Dimly lit and cozy. I recommend that you take the wait time to drink and chat at the bar. Relax, dining like this is a rarity that you should savor and enjoy.

Fun, Sleek, Classy, and right next to Olympic Club... And you wonder why I throw in the O Club?!?! Because... It is the breading ground of pure hotness and pizazz! Hotness next to any lounge will soon be filled with the, in rateclub words, "elite". It is not because my boyfriend is a dedicated member of the neighboring fine institution of athletes and beautiful gentlemen, but because there are yummies in the Sugar Cafe. Not just a typical bar with a modern spin, but little fancy filled desserts of delish! Combine clean, smooth, ladies and gents, you'll be comin in hot at the Sugar Cafe.

This place looks so pretty from the freeway, so I had to try it. I tried making reservations on a Friday night, but forget about it, it was impossible. Then I went on a Tuesday night and it was almost empty. But still the service was horrible. My server was no where to be found. They poured luke warm water (half way in the cup) and asking for refills was nearly impossible. The bread and butter were really good... but I can't say much else for the overpriced entrees. But I really liked their mashed potatoes! To emphasize the horribleness of the food, all the guys I went to eat with got In-n-out right after and were way happier. Drinkwise, they don't serve 151, but I think their cocktails weren't too bad. I've never been there when it was crackin, but it sounds like it is interesting...
