Warm Beverage Fashion at CB2

This winter weather makes me want to drink warm beverages pretty much all day long.  And when I do, I naturally want to do it in style.  My choice bev is my morning Nespresso out of my trusty lime green Pixie, who I’ve named Julius.  Isn’t Julius handsome?  He thinks you are pretty cute, too.  Julius is such a flirt…

My Mean Green Midday Snack

Single-serve Good Food’s Tableside Chunky Guacamole from Costco has become my go-to midday snack.  Gotta love the good fats!

I dip carrots or whole wheat tortilla chips in it, and I seriously appreciate that it is a single serving or I’d probably keep going all day.  (You can take the girl out of Texas, but you can’t take Texas out of the girl! #texasforever)  It’s the most satisfying snack you will want to have in arms reach!  Trust.

Best Lunch Deal in Midtown Atlanta #fact

The most satisfying and cost-effective lunch deal in Midtown is the salad bar at Eleven Restaurant in the Loews Hotel Atlanta.  And I’m not talking Souper Salad style here, y’all.  Take a peek at the decor…

For $10 you can create your own salad from an array of fresh seasonal greens, veggies, proteins (shrimp/chicken/beef most often), toppings, and signature dressings.  And this all comes with bread and a dessert!  Here’s what my favorite part of the bar looks like…

On top of being delicious and cost-effective, the salads are quite filling and the overall experience is pretty fast (efficient for a busy workday) or you can sit and linger a bit.

Check it out!  I’ll see you in line.  :)

Love for Buckhead’s St. Cecilia.

Atlanta’s newest restaurant that quickly earned a prestigious spot in my Top 5 Favorites!  Have you been yet??  All the cool kids are going…  Here’s a peek inside the hottest new restaurant that took over the old Bluepointe space (ickkk).  It looks SO much better now, right?!

Anyway, I visited St. Cecilia over opening week to celebrate my birthday and had the most fabulous meal.  I’ve been telling everyone that will listen how pleased I was with the menu, atmosphere, and service.  All were fantastic!  I wanted to eat everything – and I kinda wanted to be BFFs with my server.  Way to go, Ford Fry!  You really do know what you’re doing.

What I was most impressed with, though, was the salumi plate.  It is, without a doubt, my personal favorite in town: prosciutto di parma, soppressata, coppa, calabrese, and house rabbit terrine served with quince mostarda and warm piadini.  Amaze.

You have GOT to try this place!  And don’t forget to order the salumi plate!  I’ll wave to you from the bar.  #coolkids
