No, it’s not a metaphorical description I came up with (I’m not that creative). It’s actually the name of a little cafe in the Kirkwood neighborhood of Atlanta. I had bought a great deal for a dinner for two, so I took my friend for her birthday. Think converted house in a cute neighborhood, cozy lighting, farmhouse-style furniture and decor. Adorable. The deal included a glass of wine or beer, salad, entrée, and shared dessert. We each chose a wine – they have a decent list – and a salad. I got the Geisha salad – very fresh, with almonds, mandarin oranges, blueberries, pickled red onion, and ginger vinaigrette.
For my entrée I went with the meatloaf. I had actually craved meatloaf recently and had almost made it one night. It’s definitely a comfort food and you forget how good it can be! And there are so many variations on the basic recipe. This one was served with warm grape tomato jam, fresh garlic green beans, and parmesan mashed potatoes. It was delicious.
I’d definitely recommend this place – it would be great for a date night or a girls night. I’ve heard they have good brunch also, so I’ll have to check that out sometime!
