Atlanta Restaurant Review Podcast: From the Earth, Chattahoochee Food Works, Madras Chettinaad, Much More

Finally, episode 9 of the never-won-an-award podcast the Atlanta Grubber. I get all over town. In my backyard, I talk about From the Earth, which is a great restaurant, brewery, hangout, and now concert venue! Once a Decatur restaurant, now in Alpharetta, Madras Chettinaad is flat out one of the premier dining destinations in the area.

I give you an early scouting report on Chattahoochee Food Works, from Andrew Zimmerman, which appears to be well on its way to being the top food hall in the metro area. TydeTate Kitchen was where my maiden voyage was. But I have tried some previous locations of forthcoming purveyors and I tell you which ones I’m looking forward to. 

We finally have a good restaurant at Mansell Road and North Point Parkway. The drought ends with Passador Steak House. Two stud chefs Richard Ullio and Mike Di Paolo opened one of the best restaurants in Dunwoody, Novo Cucina.

Near Halcyon in Forsyth Country are two good places, Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies featured on national TV shows and publications, plus Jay’s Mexican Grill, which boasts they are, “Definitely not Tex-Mex.”

I ask you to visit the preferred charity of the Atlanta Grubber, the STAR House, which does splendid work with at-risk children, leveling the playing field and helping them get a great education. Check out the website, see how much good they do, and please, please help.
