As you all know, The Q+DD is a Leon’s Full Service SUPERFAN (as evidenced HERE and HERE), but things have been quite busy – life got in the way – and, unfortunately, I don’t always make it Decatur as much as I’d like.
It has been a serious while since I last
stuffed my face dined at Leon’s + I decided to rectify that with colleagues yesterday evening. SOOOO glad I did!
Witness our gluttonous feast:
We ate e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.gggggggg. Bacon in a glass; peppdews stuffed with goat cheese; prince edward island mussels with witbier + lemongrass broth; the pig smorgas with melted gruyere grand cru, cherry jam + pineapple on toast (my personal fav.); cornmeal fried calamari; maroon-colored beet hummus with feta; charcuterie + cheese plates; sundried tomato grilled flatbread with smoked mozzarella; scallops; pork chops; a truly impressive amount of pub fries + delicious dipping sauces; etc, etc. etc…
We weren’t messing around, y’all.
The food was so mouth-wateringly amazing, and honestly, better than my last two experiences there – which were still great but not fabulously excellent. Last night was fabulously excellent.
However, one of my favorite of our orders was actually not food at all, but rather it was part of their creative summer cocktail list. Rosh selected The Wasp as her drink of choice for the evening. (And, I almost finished it for her.) This drink is spectacular, guys.
The Wasp: Redemption rye whisky, Georgia peach honey, lemon juice, salt + pepper w/ a big fancy ice cube in the middle. Try it! Try it!
And, PLEASE make a point to visit Decatur more often if you’re stuck in Midtown, Buckhead, Brookhaven, etc., like I’ve been. It’s really not that far out of the way or difficult to get to. Leon’s should be your first stop. (But, again, this is v. old news…)
