RESTAURANT: Nuevo Laredo Cantina

Nuevo Laredo Cantina is one of my all-time favorite restaurants in Atlanta.  I grew up eating here with family and friends and have so many great memories!  The food is delicious and service is wonderful.

FAVORITE MEAL: Carne Asada Tacos (with sliced avocado & a side salad!)

Not only is it tasty and flavorful , it provides a nutritional balance of protein (grilled steak), healthy fats (avocado), veggies (side salad), and carbs (tortilla).

RESTAURANT: Vero Pizzeria

Vero Pizza is a Brookhaven family favorite! We love going there to play with the pizza dough they give kids – it keeps them entertained until the food arrives. I wish we could sit and play with the dough by the warm, wood-fired oven; but instead, we’ll support this restaurant with a delivery of their most yummy, fresh, and seasonal pizzas!

FAVORITE MEAL: Vero Salad & Cavoletti Pizza

The Vero Salad is filled with veggies and olives (good fats) with a sprinkle of feta. We typically order the Cavoletti pizza which has Brussel sprouts (to-die-for!!!) on a nice white sauce, layered with different meats, onions, and cheeses.

RESTAURANT: Six Feet Under Pub & Fish House

One of my family’s favorite restaurants is Six Feet Under, an iconic Atlanta restaurant which presents one of my first “out-to eat” memories from my childhood in Atlanta. I remember how excited my dad was to show us the massive view of the Atlanta skyline from their West Side location. And as a man who loves spicy Cajun food, he was equally as excited to have us try their Spicy Rat Toes, a “jalapeño stuffed with shrimp, wrapped with crispy bacon” (!). We’ve taken countless northerners here so they can get initiated to the adventurous protein options of the deep south, mainly for their Gator Bites. But what is so great about this place is that any seafood lover - whether keen to spice or more in favor of something on the lighter side - can come away satisfied.

FAVORITE MEAL: Six Feet Under Steamer

If you’re looking to share a dish with lean protein options (seafood), sprinkled with southern veggies (corn & potatoes), try the Six Feet Under Steamer. 

Honorable Mentions: Spicy Rat Toes  (jalapeños stuffed with shrimp, wrapped with crispy bacon!) & Gator Bites

Ammazza is one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants (one location in Decatur, another in Inman Park). Although (only) the Decatur location is currently closed for business, it has a wonderful patio out back – check it out when we’re done with social distancing.

FAVORITE MEAL: Any.Pizza.On.The.Menu.

Their pizza crust is delicious, as is their homemade mozzarella cheese. I love that Ammazza customizes their pizzas – want one of their specials without the meat? No problem. They also have a selection of vegan pizzas with cashew cheese sauce, which is delicious. There is no way to go wrong with your order here!
