hi yal. let me share what i’ve been up – how about it?
keila and i went to atlanta to
do some buying for the shop take a grand eating tour of the city. highlights included dinner at the optimist where the fish options on the menu were delightfully overwhelming, the oysters salty and thick, and the cocktails perfectly prepared.
we hit up west egg twice for breakfast – it was just that good. if only raleigh could get together a concept and menu like that. IF ONLY (i am putting this out in the universe: please someone open a pretty and tasty restaurant in raleigh). delicious lattes, spicy bloody marys and crispy buttered biscuits. we lingered, and lingered some more.
we dined at jct kitchen one evening, and it didn’t disappoint: scrumptious salads slathered in ranch dressing (you know that joke about how to get a southern girl to do a dirty deed…, well, the ranch was that good), a delicious old fashioned with a root beer spin and collards soaked in vinegar. we managed to have a lovely time despite the 7 frat boys sitting beside us in long sleeve button-ups every color of the paas easter egg rainbow who ordered a bottle of white wine for the table. i mean, really?
i grabbed some pretty trims for client projects
i hope you had a great weekend – it feels like spring doesn’t it!
