What more can I say? This was the second time that I’ve been to Buckhead Bottle Bar and Bistro and I was not disappointed. This time I had dinner with my bestie Demishia Wright CEO of LaShelle Denise, LLC after attending an earlier event at Justin’s. We decided to sit outside since it was a nice night. We were disappointed to know that we missed Chef Ellis (@theChefATL) because he was so awesome when we were there last. Travis was our server and he was great! I was in a wine mood (aren’t I always) so I had the Reisling and the bestie had her usual Grand Marnier on the rocks. The last time we were here, it was late and we ordered from the late night menu. This time we had more options and the Grand Peppercorn Filet immediately caught my bestie’s eyes because of the Grand Marnier (surprise, surprise) glaze that they use. I saw stuffed chicken with spinach and was sold! I HAD to get the truffle MAC and CHEESE which was amazing!!! It was interesting to sit outside because though there is no smoking in that area, people can smoke outside the area so that was the only thing that I gave a thumbs down to. I really like the atmosphere. It’s great for a laid back meal with not a lot of fuss. For dessert we decided on the apple tart which was also delicious. I will forever suggest BBB to anyone who wants a great meal and great service.
Good times had by all of course. But it’s always a good time when you put LaShelle Denise, LLC and CandiConnections in the same place!
BUT IT’S NOT OVER!!!! After our great experience, on the way home what happened? We got pulled over a block away! By the sexiest, most chocolate cops I’ve ever seen! One was on my side and the other on the bestie’s side. I couldn’t breathe… Not because I was nervous but because he was so fine! Only I would get pulled over for forgetting to turn on my headlights! No ticket thank GOD! BUT… besides that truffle mac and cheese Mr. Officer was the highlight of my night!!! WHEW!!!!
So great times to be had by all SuperBowl weekend in Atlanta with the bestie @DemishiaW! LaShelle Denise LLC did their thing at The L.E.A.D. Foundation’s mentorship program and CandiConnections experienced the BEST massage at TantricTemptations. We had a blast at Frank Ski’s new restaurant (the calamari is awesome!) and treated like royalty at Buckhead Bottle Bar (thank you Chef Ellis @thechefatl)! Who says Atlanta isn’t the place to be? Just a few things to think about:
If you want to get involved in the community check out www.theleadfoundation.org The L.E.A.D. Foundation is run by one of my very good friends Andrew Snorton. He’s always looking for volunteers. Follow him on twitter (@asnorton) to see what he’s up to next.
For an awesome massage hit my boy Q up at firstname.lastname@example.org. His rates are reasonable and he makes his own massage oil! Mmmmm, mmmm, mmmm. Follow them on twitter (@tantrictempt8ns)
If you live in Atlanta and haven’t gone to Frank Ski’s I highly recommend it. The drinks were awesome! And the calamari divine. The service was off the charts! Shout to our server!
If you didn’t know, well know you do. BUCKHEAD BOTTLE BAR! Who would’ve known this place was there? If you’re a pre-renovation-of-buckhead Atlantan like myself I’m sure you would not have ventured down to this area. It is in the old venue where the bikers used to hang out when the Buckhead strip was poppin (late 90’s). My bestie and I had a blast! Though our server forgot to order ALL of our food, we did try the sliders. My bestie had the shrimp and I had the beef (since I’m allergic to shellfish). And to our surprise Chef Ellis sent out Cheescake Pops (plain, chocolate and red velvet) which were to DIE for. But then again I LOVE red velvet anything!
