Foodie News x Restaurant Reviews x Hip-Hop Attitude

In 2010, I (Nick Love) spent over 45% of my annual income eating out at some of Atlanta's best (and worst) restaurants. So, who better to guide you through the city's crowded dining terrain?? Now, I, along with my team of Hip-Hop generation foodies, will expose and review ATL's newest hits, hidden gems, and old favorites. Hopefully, this blog will earn us a free meal or two while we point you guys in the direction of some good food and steer you away from the wackness. Let's eat!!!

What's the Next Atlanta Food Trend??


Over the last 5 years, a number of food trends have cycled thru this great city.  We saw burger joints (Flip Burger Boutique, Yeah! Burger, Grind House Killer Burgers) spring up out of nowhere.  Then, pizza became the flavor of the year (Antico Pizza, Varasano's Pizzeria, Max's Coal Oven Pizzeria).  Cupcakes had a run (CamiCakes, Gigi's Cupcakes, Atlanta Cupcake Factory).  Now, food trucks are all the rave (The Fry Guy, Yumbii, Tex's Tacos).  I won't even start on all the taco spots.  Excuse me, I meant "taquerias". 

So, going into 2012, what's gonna be the new thing in ATL food??  My personal thoughts - it won't be food at all.  The new trend is gonna be. . . DRINKS!!!

With the emergence of products like Isaac's Lemonades (fresh fruit drinks w/ liquor in them) and more specialty drinks that include ice cream and other signature liqueurs, I think you'll start to see more of a cache attached to "going out for drinks".  Pretty soon, we'll be asking "who are you drinking??" much in the same manner as we do celebrities on the red carpet.

I wonder if I can get a drink named after me. . .
