It’s official — I’m once again living in NYC. But before I left the biscuits for the bagels, I tackled my ATL bucket list and also stopped off at some old faithful spots in the city. Here’s an initial recap of those adventures. Part II to follow soon.
I finally got to Antico Pizza (see: ode to its perfect pie here) and also tried the gelato joint next door.
I thoroughly enjoyed my hazelnut cup al fresco. Things I’ll miss: how summertime starts in April in Atlanta…
Taking advantage of more sunny seating, this time in the backyard garden at Dr. Bombay’s Underwater Tea Party.
Finally managed to make a long awaited visit to Buford Highway, a stretch of concrete chock full of phenomenally authentic eats. From tacos to pho to banh mis, the highway offers a global food tour of sorts.
A friend and I opted for Nam Phuong, famous for its pho / noodles. Not quite the looker from the exterior, but it’s what on the inside that counts, as is exhibited by my friend’s beauty bowl pictured above — a vegetarian sweet and sour soup packed with veggies, tofu, and pineapple for sweetness. Far more photogenic than my oodles of noodles.
One last walk along the beloved Beltline. A welcome change from NYC’s oft overcrowded High Line.
A quickie coffee break at Parish’s café in Inman Park. Still regret passing up those nutterbutter cookies. Badly.
Check back soon for Part II and see how I spent my very last moments in Atlanta.
