You wouldn’t know it from my reviews, but my wife and I practice a healthier eating lifestyle, especially at home. One of our stronger beliefs is eating healthy and humanly raised meets, like grass-fed beef when possible. It’s pretty rare to find, especially when dining out, but we often frequented Yeah Burger in Atlanta because of their dedication to providing grass-fed burgers, and other great food options. They pride themselves on serving local, and mostly organic food choices. Pair their passion with some great-tasting beef, and they became one of our favorite stops in the city. That was until we discovered a more local burger establishment called Grazing Here.
Grazing Here started as a food truck that frequented the Peachtree City Farmer’s Market, serving their fresh, grass-fed beef burgers. Even though we went a few times to the market, we were always there too early in the morning to eat a burger. Once we found out that they had opened up a permanent store front in Peachtree City, we knew we had to try it. Now that we have made a move that puts us very close to their restaurant, we enjoy our short drive to great grass-fed beef burgers.

While walking around Savannah, my wife was getting hungry (go figure, it wasn’t me this time) and we used the TripAdvisor app to find the closest restaurants to our location. We came up with #78 rated (they also have a #145 rated location on another street in Savannah) B & D Burgers. I didn’t think much of it when I came upon the building. It looked like any normal restaurant/bar. Continue reading Trip Report: Savannah, GA (June, 2013) Day 2: 7:00 p.m. B & D Burgers
This morning started with breakfast at Henry’s, which was on the other side of the block from our hotel.
I didn’t bring my camera because after looking at their menu in our hotel room, there didn’t seem to be anything special worth photographing. It wasn’t until we got home that I regretted that decision. Not because the food was anything special, it wasn’t. I remembered my reasoning for these reviews, while they may be helpful to those of you reading, they’re really meant for me. They’re a way for me to keep a record of places I’ve been and foods I’ve eaten. This is useful for entertainment purposes looking back and seeing some great eats, but also to help me decide whether or not to go back to a place, and if I do, what might be a good or bad choice on what to order.

I visited Savannah, GA over the weekend and wanted to sample plenty of food along with the history of the city. Not everything I ate is featured here. I left out the bags of sweets I ate from the two amazing candy shops, River Street Sweets and Savannah Candy Kitchen. I also left out photos of one breakfast, which I explain later in this report.
For our first stop, we wanted to start with a breakfast meal, even though we wouldn’t be arriving in Savannah until about 11:00 a.m. Browsing the internet for a good place that serves breakfast all day we found Clary’s Cafe (rated #86 of 403 restaurants in the city on TripAdvisor). There some photos of people’s meals that intrigued me, one of which I planned to order myself. Continue reading Trip Report: Savannah, GA (June, 2013) Day 1: 12:00 p.m. Clary’s Cafe
I will begin by asking that you please excuse the shoddy camera work. The photos taken here were done quickly, with the food shots taken in the car so the lighting and focus didn’t always work to my advantage.
After a disappointing meal at the Radial Cafe we decided to head down the street to Highland Bakery. Atlanta has three locations. I’ve been to the other one for breakfast, rated #176 of 1,378 restaurants in Atlanta on TripAdvisor, and loved it. The one we visited today is the original, and rated #38.

While my wife was in Atlanta recently, she had lunch at a barbecue place called Fox Brothers Barbecue. She texted me to rave about how amazing it was, so I checked out their menu online and was intrigued. She said she’d be willing to go back next time we were in the city. Two days later, here we are.
Fox Brothers Barbecue is a little off the beaten path, but we had no problem finding it with the GPS. The restaurant is made up of three separate areas. The main building where customers eat, the garage to the right where they keep their smokers and other cooking supplies, and a set of temporary storage units that I was told are holding some materials after a tree had fallen on the main building during a recent storm. Continue reading Fox Brothers Barbecue
Last February, my wife and I visited Canoe for Valentine’s Day dinner. Ever since, we’ve considered it one our favorite places tried in Atlanta. After a little over a year we decided to return. Some of the dishes will be repeats from last time, others will be new to us.
We split all the appetizers and desserts between the two of us, and ordered our own entrées. The first appetizer was a repeat from last time, and was definitely worth the second try. It was Canoe’s House Smoked Salmon on a crispy potato cake with Vermont goat’s cheese. Continue reading Canoe: Part 1
