The Purple Cork Screw
The Purple Cork Screw has wine tastings and a wine shop check out their website for specific days and times. I found it very interesting that they offer yoga and wine on Mondays.

AJA - Buckhead
Looking for a special place to take your significant other Aja is the place.
As you open the expansive large doors to Aja it becomes a breathtaking experience. A large Buddha is the center of attention when dining at Aja. The dim lighting makes it romantic, but not creepy. The decor is not the only great thing about this place. The hostess greets you with a warm smile and engages you in small talk as she walks you to your seat. The waiter immediately takes your drink order and explains the set up of the menu. I had the sweet and sour fried chicken that comes with white or brown rice. The chicken is fried in a light batter, with the sauce mainly on the bottom of the plate, which is great because the sauce doesn't over power the crispiness of the chicken.

Waikikie Hawaiian BBQ
This is a Hawaiian BBQ spot. It is rather small. You order your food and pay at the front of the restaurant. You are given a number and your food is brought out to you. I really wanted to like this place, but the macaroni salad needed more seasoning and the sauce that was placed over the chicken was too sweet. The plus side is the restaurant has a live band that plays Hawaiian music while you eat, and a patio is located in front of the restaurant.

Bar One is a restaurant during mid-day and turns into a lounge at night. It offers valet parking that is based on tips. As you walk up the short flight of stairs to the restaurant's door you can hear the soft R & B tones coming from inside from the live band. My party of five was seated promptly without any reservations being made. The waiter was very polite, giving my group suggestions on what to order for drinks and what the specials for that night consisted of. The food was on point. The turkey sliders were juicy, plump, and not over cooked. The shrimp was breaded and coated with a mild seasoning. Overall, I was very pleased with the food and the live band.

This is a cool take out or eat in burger spot near Emory. Words can not describe the veggie burger. I am not sure how healthy the veggie burger is because it was fried, but worth the extra calories. The garlic fries were good, but I will check out another side item next time I visit. I was told the custard is a big seller, and many customers seemed to order it while I was their. This will be a must have on my next visit. Burgerfi is located in a cute complex with other restaurants and shops. A parking garage is available and patrons can park for free for the first two hours.
