westside urban market is my latest crush here in atlanta.
for some reason i thought it was significantly further away
which explains why my love is in it's new stage.
just around the corner from IKEA and atlantic station
sits this fabulous dining & shopping destination.
i've encouraged a few of my friends that were cruising through atlanta this summer
to check it out.
don't let the fact that these are all iphone photos take away from the cool factor.
anthropologie, jonathan adler, peridot west
& for dining, osteria del figo, taqueria del sol and many others.
we've been a couple times so these images are from two seperate nights.
while on that side of town we've also stopped in Flip Burger Boutique
which, let me assure you, is not a burger joint
"A modern burger boutique featuring a menu that redefines what we’ve come to think a hamburger should be. In a modern space FLIP incorporates elements of fine dining with a creative, raw energy."
FLIP’s chef, Richard Blais, is one of the country’s most innovative chefs and is the winner of BRAVO’S season 8 ‘Top Chef All-Stars.’
the other evening we had just the older two
so dan & i introduced them to the seriously yummy chic restaurant.
ok. just realized i uploaded these out of sequence
so bear with me...
another must see destination.
"a culinary wonderland"
where else can you purchase your fine imported cheese
& a Forage bowtie at the same time?
need i say more?
need i say more?
ok. back to flip. two seperate visits.
allow me to introduce the blackened shrimp burger.
heaven on a bun i tell ya, heaven on a bun.
(& that would be a fried lemon on top. oh yes.)
& these my friends, are the liquid N2 milkshakes.
yes, you heard me right.
here's our waitress adding a little more liquid nitrogen ....
always a great destination for shopping
& fun interesting dining experience too.
