One other recent treat- smores at Halo!

ted | Jan 9, 2004 10:12 AM

We'd read about the 'Campfire Hobby Smore Kit' at Halo for a few years and hadn't made it there to try it. Finally did after our evening at Mid City Cuisine.

All I can say is that it was a real treat and fun. For $8, there was more fixins than we could finish. And the chocolate (I think) was Valrhona and the marshmallows homemade. I'm trying to think of some excuse to track down one of the Japanese ceramic burners they used- it was just too cool.

Halo has always impressed me. The last time we went, it was primarily a straight crowd earlier, giving way to the boys of Midtown as the evening progressed. This time, the boys weren't there, but the crowd was a mix racially that I think is, unfortunately, unusual for Atlanta. They seem to be a bit more choosy at the door, but there's no cover and the standard appeared to be fairly reasonable (no one in sneakers/jeans/t-shirt, unless you slip the doorman a C-note, but that's another story for another forum).

The funny thing is that, in the couple of years since Halo started having a menu of noshes, we hadn't made it for the smores. Now, every Linens n Things has a smore kit in their panoply of kitsch.

We were informed by a friend visiting from Chicago that smores have already come and gone there ("that's so passe'"). Hate to be on the downward slope of the trend, but really enjoyed the chocolate.
