The Battery

Garden & Gun Club

A long time fan of the magazine, I was so excited to hear that Garden & Gun Club (the very first!) would be opening in Atlanta. I got to cover it for an AJC First Look and again later a restaurant review. I was impressed with both how consistently the atmosphere resembled the magazine, and of course the quality and beauty of the food! It is located inside the Battery alongside many other favorites such as C. Ellet’s, Punch Bowl Social, and Terrapin Taproom.

SunTrust Park Drinking and Dining

Working with the AJC, I've gotten a fantastic feel of the rush of new restaurants coming to Smyrna, courtesy of the new SunTrust Park. What impressed me most was the variety, that you could get anything from typical "ball park" food such as hotdogs and beer (although, these are probably the best hotdogs and beer you will ever have) to an upscale steakhouse experience with oysters, lobster, and Tomahawk Ribeye. These restaurants are open both during the Atlanta Braves games and non-event days. Take a peek at a couple of our First Looks including Terrapin Taproom and Fox Brothers BBQ, Todd English Tavern, and C. Ellet's
