I had my first taste of heaven in Birmingham.  It was delicious and I wanted more. 
 
When I was back in the Ham a few months later, I had it again.  And I was officially hooked.
 
Chicken Salad. 
 
It’s another one of life’s great delicacies that I’d never had growing up – like mangoes, sweet tea, pimiento cheese, coffee ice cream, guacamole and Krispy Kreme doughnuts.  How could I not have known how delicious it is after all this time?!  However, I quickly learned that much like Lean Cuisines (my lunch staple), not all chicken salad is created equal.  In fact, after a considerable amount of purely scientific research, the only chicken salad that I actually love is from Zoes Kitchen.  As I eluded to previously, I first tried it at Zoes in Birmingham w/ Jen – then in Jacksonville w/ Slick’s fam.  I just love it there!
 
Zoes!  Zoes!  Zoes!

Zoes! Zoes! Zoes!

Much to my sweet surprise, Zoes opened in Atlanta a few months ago in the Peachtree Battle shopping center.  (Someone IS listening to my prayers!!)  Christine and I went today for lunch and it was absolutely packed with Buckhead bankers, Midtown lawyers, soccer moms galore and your grandmother.  Yes, she was there.  Anyway, we each had my favorite: the Chix Salad & Fruit Plate and it was delish – as per usual!

I just feel so good about eating fresh, relatively-healthy food for lunch – and then going back to work to sit behind a desk all day…  It’s a bit challenging to find a good parking spot nearby the restaurant in the PTB shopping center, but it is worth the walk if you have to park far away.  Don’t forget to try their chix salad!  (I’ve heard good things about their pita pizzas, too!) 
 
Viva Zoes!
