Want the inside scoop on how restaurants get you to come out of your pocket and at the end of your meal have you wondering, ‘What did I order?’
Here’s the scoop! An article written in Excelle– a social networking site created primarily for the career-minded woman, gives 10 restaurant menu ‘illusions’ that entice and ultimately get you to come out of your pocket more generously than you may have intended. Everything from, ‘this isn’t what it looks like in the commercial’ to why adding ‘bacon’ to a dish immediately increases its worth, is laid out for you here so you can be better equipped next time you dine out.
Hey, make it a great tasting Friday!
Because I LOVE everything food, I thought it would be an awesome idea to provide a listing of restaurant grades for our state’s largest county, Fulton.
These restaurants have numerical scores and are translated pretty much the same as school grades with 100 being perfect, or in this case, a restaurant with no violations. However, know that a deduction is taken for every violation given by the inspector. What the violation is for is the mystery! Don’t be mislead by assuming unwashed hands or spoiled food is the culprit in every situation. It may be something minor as a leaky dishwasher. For this matter, if you see your favorite restaurant listed with a not-so-favorable score, your best bet is to either drop by or call and speak with a manager to find out what’s really going on!
Yes, the holiday season is upon us, and there will be plenty of shopping. And with shopping comes dining out. So here is my holiday gift to all my readers- Eat well & SAFE!

Make it a Great Tasting Day
Talk about one of the best restaurants ever in Atlanta! Does anyone remember The Coach and Six on Peachtree and how it had the most divine American Contemporary cuisine ever! I had my first and last intoxicating experience back in 1994. They served delicious dishes such as Lobster Ravioli, their famous Triple Cut Lamb Chops, and my ABSOLUTE favorite dish, the Traditional Shrimp Scampi- another entry in my internal cookbook that has led me to love gourmet food the way I do today.
(Right next door to where The Coach and Six used to reside is the fabulous R.Thomas!!! My husband would eat their wings every night if I let him. I’m quite partial to their version of Eggs Benedict (on wheat toast). You talk about tasty-healthy food, R.Thomas is definitely one of my inspirations when I create my menus of healthy gourmet.)
I have no idea why The Coach and Six closed, but if anyone knows, or has an idea of what restaurant in Atlanta or anywhere, comes close, please, I’d love to know!
Remember, SHARING is caring!
