Review of Cinco


I love this place. I have been here more times than I can count, but this is the first time that I have blogged about it. I can't get enough of the raspberry margarita and the lobster and shrimp enchiladas with the fried corn. My husband ordered the Cinco Borrito, shown above. It was huge. The restaurant itself is very nice it features a large bar and patio. The restaurant has a back room that is connected to the restaurant that plays live music. Its definitely a  place you want to check out.

Flavors 236 Johnson Ferry Road Atlanta

What a romantic place to dine at if your celebrating a birthday or anniversary. The restaurant is beautifully decorated in blue and brown. The incandescent lights gives this place an intimate vibe. 
The staff is very pleasant. You start off with bread and a vegetable plate shown in the picture above. The vegetable plate includes: cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, radishes, and nuts. I ordered the chicken kaboob. The portions are large enough for two. The chicken is tender and flavorful. The rice was great. I added barberries for a small up charge, but it was worth it. I think this is one of my favorite Persian restaurants thus far. I highly recommend this place and will be back in the future. Flavor Restaurant on Urbanspoon

Review of sip

SIP in Alpharetta on Crabapple Road

Sip is a wine bar. The cool thing about this place is that you can taste different types of wine for an inexpensive price. They offer sips, half, and full glasses. The sips range from $1.25 - $3.00 depending on the wine. Sip offers small, shareable, and full size entrees. The establishment itself is split in half. On one side is a wine store. On the other side is the restaurant, which has a fire place. This is great for the cool weather we are getting now that fall is here. The restaurant is on the cozy side, I recommend making reservations before you arrive.

Purple Cork Screw - Decatur

The Purple Cork Screw

The Purple Cork Screw is a very casual, I do mean casual wine bar. You have your choice of a few seating areas. There is a small lounge in the back of the establishment for sipping wine and listening to music. The front of the wine bar has a few tables and chairs, or you can enjoy your wine outside. 
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 in Buckhead

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

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 Review

Bar One

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.
