From the Food and More Blog: What’s the best place for a vegan to eat?
Hey, folks -- Where's the best place for a vegan? It's a topic I know well because one of kids is essentially vegan. Any restaurant with lots of small plates will do the trick. She loves Barcelona, the tapas bar, because there's a great choice of veggie options. Also, the secret veg. paradise, surprisingly, is Fogo de Chao. While everyone else is gorging on Brazilian barbecued meats, you can keep going back to the salad bar/buffet.
Me, I"ve been munching on chicken wings from Nam Phuong Vietnamese Restaurant. Find me a better chicken wing in this town...
Hey, Nick - Duluth because the Korean food is freaking awesome -- literally some of the best you'll find anywhere. Roswell because you can be a tourist in your own town. It's kind of amazing to see Canton Street in full swing if you've never been and didn't know what it's turned into. Plus, you'll get better wine by the glass at Vin 25 than anywhere in Decatur. But you're more of a beer guy, I'm guessing.
Sounds like you need a loofah
Depends what you're in the mood for. We always love taking over a big barbecue table in a Korean restaurant like Cho Sun Ok on Buford Highway. I know lots and lots of people love celebrating at King + Duke, which has a great upstairs dining room. If you're going really fancy, the downstairs private dining room at Bacchanalia is a magical place.
Hey, sorry we deleted the good question about following Anthony Bourdain's rules. Can the sender please resend?
John, here's another question from the Food & More Blog:
" What’s the best place for people to eat just off the Beltline when you are still in your running / riding gear"
