Atlanta Eats: Part II

I have a confession to make...I'm kind of obsessed with food.  Some people bring home souvenirs from trips.  I bring home food.  I once brought a tarte au citron back from Gerard Mulot in Paris.  Wherever we travel, near or far, I usually have a list of restaurants I want to try as well as old standbys to which I want to return.  Last week in Atlanta, I got to do all three.  I tried a new-to-me place, went to an old favorite and came home with breads and cheeses from my beloved Star Provisions.

The heart of Buckhead has recently gotten a facelift with a whole new open-air mall full of exciting shops and restaurants, and we finally got a chance to explore them.  Since we were only in town for one night, I knew we needed to hit it out of the park with dinner, and Le Bilboquet was an easy solution.  My mom and I have long been fans of the New York location of the bistro, and I know this will not be our last visit to the one in Atlanta.

Last but not least was Shake Shack!  After recently conducting a search to find the best burger in my hometown, I thought it was important to try Shake Shack's version, and I was not disappointed.  I had the ShackBurger, while my mom went vegetarian with the 'Shroom Burger.  I can see why this little burger stand has gone viral, so to speak, but I have to tell you, as good as it was, it didn't hold a candle to a Blue Dot burger here in Pensacola!
