As previously mentioned in my Antico post, Mich + Justin were in town from NYC last week. Since they hadn’t met Slick yet, we made plans to join them for dinner one evening. They were staying in Grant Park, and so we thought it made sense to go some place local. The first restaurant to pop into my mind was Six Feet Under.
Which reminds me, I love Six Feet Under in Grant Park for exactly five reasons:
5 – Oyster Shooters
They have them and I think that’s awesome. My favorite is the Six Feet Under: Absolut Peppar, Bloody Mary mix + Oyster, but the Bloody Bass-tard and the Oyster Kamikaze are really fun, too.
Check out a list of Six Feet’s Oyster Shooters here:
4 – The Best Hush Puppies in the History of the World.
They are absolutely delish. I like mine a bit underdone. I’d eat hush puppies over french fries or onion rings any day – although I’d prefer not to have to choose.
3 – Proximity to Oakland Cemetery
I love, love, love Oakland Cemetery – it’s easily one of my favorite attractions in Atlanta. There are so many interesting, historic people like Margaret Mitchell, Bobby Jones + Maynard Jackson buried there. I think it’s so fun to go on a walk through the garden cemetery on a pretty day and admire all the old crypts. A few drinks at Six Feet Under afterwards makes for a really unique date*.
*Attention Boys: This is not okay for a first date. Repeat: Not okay for a first date + know your audience.
2 – The Staff
I have absolutely nothing profound to say here. The service is good. The staff kind of reminds me of a crew of shipmates. I think that is cool and theme-appropriate for Six Feet. That’s all.
1 – DYSON HAND DRYERS!!
Have y’all tried these yet? Fact: Dyson Hand Dryers are the most powerful hand dryers in the whole wide world. I’m a little obsessed with Dyson vacuum cleaners – so spotting these babies at Six Feet made my day! (It doesn’t take much to excite me, obv.)
I’m just saying…what else could you possibly ask for in a restaurant?
Although the Grant Park location is my favorite, Six Feet is also located in West Midtown near the Atlanta Humane Society. The West Midtown location has a great rooftop patio that I’ve really enjoyed in the summer for drinks.
