Atlanta Living 5.8.21

Thanks for tuning in to WSB's Atlanta Living with Belinda Skelton today! Here are some of the things we discussed!

For my Mother's Day, we are picking up Biggun's BBQ in Jasper and bringing it to our house so enjoy with family. Belinda is cooking at home :) If you are late to the game, here's my list of options for dine-in or carry-out (if there's still space!).

Also, try The Woodall (their brunch is amazing!) and Antico Roma for Roman-style Italian pizza and sandwiches!

If you're up in Blue Ridge try The Rum Cake Lady and Carol's BBQ

Check out Tam's Backstage in Cumming looks like part of the little theater there.

Elaine in Covington suggests The Tickled Pig in Madison

Daniel in Woodstock recommends Taj Mahal on Barrett Parkway for amazing Indian Food. If ordering online Use 'TM15' to receive 15% discount on your order

Whitney recommends Dunc's BBQ in Newnan

Phil wanted pierogis--the only places I know right now to get them is Pataks Meat Products. And he also wanted cheddar cheese curds but I am not aware of anywhere in Atlanta that serves them. For white cheese curds on poutine, I love The General Muir or The Vortex . Ralph in Marietta is Polish and he agrees with Patak Meats as well! Also, the Buford Highway Farmer's Market also used to have it. Finally, there is a Polish Bakery called Grand Bakery in Lawrenceville that sometimes has it. Also if the Polish Pierogi festival is back this year you will find it there.

David in Peachtree City wants cioppino-- try The Optimist or Nino's on Cheshire Bridge (Zuppa di peche) or 6 Feet Under locations fish stew is wonderful. He also recommends The Georgia Shrimp Company in Peachtree City.

Oscar in Woodstock recommends going to a place Cherry Log in between Ellijay and Blue Ridge: The Pink Pig. There's a big Pink Pig off of 575.

Kimberly in Dacula recommends the best Greek food at Gyro City Grill.

For Prime rib at Highland Tap in VA Highlands or Joey D's Taproom near Perimeter Mall

Braciole, an Italian specialty, is usually made from pounded slices of beef rump, top round, or bottom round. Pounded pork or veal cutlets may also be used. The individual slices are stuffed, rolled, tied, and braised in a combination of wine, stock, and tomatoes. The correct pronunciation of braciole in Italian is Bra-choh-leh. The "c" in braciole is pronounced with a "ch" sound in English and the subsequent "o" maintains an open sound but many (like the caller we had) pronounce it Brahzul from the Sicilian dialect. I *think* they have it at Amalfi Ristorante in Roswell or Sugo in John's Creek.

John, Belinda's board operator recommends El Roble, a Tex-Mex place in Jasper. Get a steak you can cut with a butter knife.

Leah in Atlanta HAPPY BIRTHDAY for fried shrimp try Steamhouse Lounge in midtown or Chiringa in Alpharetta.

For Chicago-style thin-crust try Roasti's in Sandy Springs and Nancy's Pizza. Nina and Rafi's on the beltline is Detroit style which is similar and also excellent.
