Georgia on my Mind

Sunrise over Buckhead from our living room.

Holy cow, has March been crazy. For the first couple of weeks I was preoccupied getting ready for my trip to Bali (lots more on that later), but now that I’m back, all of our energy is being spent on getting settled in our new home—in Atlanta. (That’s three moves in three different cities in less than a year. Let’s hope this one sticks.) Now that we’re here, I’m looking forward to making our apartment feel like a real home, but I’m also eager to get to know our new city. Here are a few things that are already on my list: a Braves game at Turner Field, hunting for household treasure at Scott Antique Markets, sampling and shopping for international fare at Buford Highway Farmers Market (and hitting every other spot on Anthony Bourdain’s Atlanta itinerary), and finding a few go-to restaurants in our neighborhood (this one is already a contender, and this one is on our hit list) and a new yoga studio. We got here right at the beginning of spring, which seems like the perfect time to sniff out the city’s artistic and cultural offerings (some of these, for starters) and outdoor hangouts (I’m coming at you with a blanket and a stack of books, Piedmont Park!).

  1. So excited for you and Nick, Love Love Love ATL!! My greatest hits include (I think all are a little South of you):
    Alon’s in the Virginia Highland area for all your baked goods, awesome breakfast, and casual lunch!
    Pretty much anything in Decatur, but specifically the Iberian Pig and The Brick Store.
    Late night, So Ba, is a pretty cool experience, I also think this was on Bourdain’s list.
    The One Ear Stag is a great spot, along with Fontaine’s for Oysters.
    I also love the little five points area, great Indian food on Moreland Ave, right down / across the street from the Vortex (the name escapes me), but when in the area we always hit the Porter and Wrecking Bar.
    I know Burgers aren’t your thing, but if you ever decide you need one, get it from Holeman and Finch.
    Clearly you can tell what Ryan and I come to Atlanta for! We try and make it worth are while, and catch a show, or super cool exhibition at The High while we’re there. Have so much fun exploring your new city!! I think you’ll love it!
