If you've lived in the Atlanta area for very long, you know that the food/bar scene is light-years away from the1990s when we mostly looked for the best pizza and most authentic Mexican places in town... as in... Pippin's over by Tech and US Y Bar & Grill off Northside Dr. But today no place is worth it's salt unless they serve trendy, hoppy beers with freaky names and gluten-free entrees etc. I find myself reading menus struggling to find something I want that's not flavored or seasoned with the latest taste de jour. Anyone else looking for simple vs. complicated food? Think chicken and rice with a couple fresh vegetables or a simple salad with cornbread in something nicer than a meat and three cafeteria. Anybody?
