Last night, some super do-gooding folks + I volunteered at the Atlanta Community Food Bank for a few hours (which was such a great experience + I definitely plan to do it again), and then went out for some hard-earned tacos + drinks at Taqueria del Sol – Howell Mill.
About an hour into my margarita the meal + wrist-deep in queso, I pondered if there was really anything in this world more delicious than a sweet margarita + warm queso??
Surprisingly, the answer is YES.
It’s a steaming hot plate of Oysters Rockefeller + a martini! Sounds snobby to you? It isn’t. Cozy up to the bar and order a martini nice + dirtydirty (you know that’s how we roll) and some hot Oysters Rock: oysters on the half-shell topped with creamed spinach, three cheeses + bread crumbs. So freaking delicious, it isn’t. even. FUNNY!
Um yum! They are always amazingly delicious no matter where you get them (I mean, how could you go wrong w/ creamed spinach + loads of cheese on oysters?), but my personal favorite is found at Fontaine’s Oyster House in the Highlands!
I really heart Fontaine’s.
Next time you are down for drinks + some heavy social eats – mix it up a bit and have the server throw back an order of Oysters Rockefeller for you. You’ll see what I’m screamin’…
