I have a favorite new restaurant that I can't wait to share with you all - Local Three Kitchen & Bar. I've been there twice in the past month and it gets TWO BIG thumbs up! It's a great place that combines a casual, fun atmosphere with artfully prepared fresh, local and sustainable food. I've attached the link - spend a little time on their website and you will be intrigued...who can resist a place that describes its style as "Foie Gras in Flip Flops" and touts their daily operating philosophy as : People Matter Most. Local Is Priority. Seasonal Makes Sense. Authenticity Rules. Quality Governs. Delicious Trumps. Pretense Loses. Comfort Feels Good. Appreciation Tastes Better. Prudence Sustains It All. I admit it - I'm totally smitten!
I've enjoyed some pretty yummy food there on my two visits - Cheddar, Bacon and Thyme popcorn as a snack for the table, Spring Pea Carbonara as a starter, Wood Oven Roasted Hanger Steak, Panko Crusted Atlantic Flounder. It's kind of addicting - even though I'm over-the-moon satisfied with the food in front of me while I'm there, I'm already planning what I'll have the next time I come (Lobster Pot Pie anyone?).

We had dinner there tonight to celebrate my dear friend Rosie's birthday (with a belated shout out to Neighbor Greg's birthday as well). I've captured Rosie enjoying her birthday dessert - a tasty apple pie accompanied by a cheddar crisp and rosemary ice cream.
You'll also note that this place bosts quite a pig collection - makes perfect sense, right - after all, who can resist those adorable squealers (clearly Rosie can't!!).
If you are in the ATL - run, don't walk, to Local Three - I promise you'll have a great meal and a great time. If you are an out-of-towner - make sure you hit Local Three on your next trip to town -- call me, I'll be glad to go with you!
