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!!!

Where To Eat For Father's Day 2012

Ok, we get it.  Mothers are the ish!!!  After years of watching athletes, actors, and musicians go out of their way to thank Mom for everything under the sun, we're not even mad anymore that Dad is, by default, an after thought.  I mean, think about it.  Has anyone ever introduced you to their Dad and Mom??  Nope!  It's usually Mom and Dad.  I don't even think I've seen a Fathers Day commercial on TV this year.  Smh.  In the famous words of Chris Rock, all Dads get is "the big piece of chicken".

So, in honor of "the big piece of chicken", ATL Bite Life wants to steer you in the direction of a good meal for Dad.  The least you could do is feed the man after you give him that homemade card and that ugly tie.

Fancy Dad:
Ocean Prime - If your Dad is one of those who appreciate the finer things in life, steak and seafood might be the way to go.  Ocean Prime is one of the newest additions to Buckhead and their menu is full of the best cuts and portions whether you love the surf or the turf.  We have it on good authority from our boy Jeezy that this is place to be.  Now that Justins is closed, I'm sure you'll be able to spot some of ATL's hip hop royalty in here.  Depending on how old Fancy Dad is, this could be a good thing or a deterrent.

Family Dad:
Capers - This is ATL Bite Life's absolute FAVORITE restaurant in the city.  Great food, great presentation, and a great atmosphere.  Its' fancy decor still has a very comfortable, home-like feel.  If you want to get Dad out of the house but don't wanna take him to the old faithfuls like Red Lobster or O' Charleys, this is the place to go.  Their Sunday brunch is INCREDIBLE  and their Hawaiian ribeye steak is better than the one at Houstons.  I PROMISE that the whole family will enjoy it, especially Dad.

Hungry Dad:
Ray's On The River, at Killer Creek, and In The City -Nothing beats a buffet on Father's Day.  The Ray's group of restaurants is offering their Sunday All You Can Eat smorgasbord to the Dads of ATL.  It's All You Can Eat!!!  Need we say more.

Sports Dad:
Stats - Yeah, it's Father's Day but there's still an NBA Finals game on this Sunday.  To many men, this fact will trump anything holiday-related.  If your dad happens to be a basketball fanatic, go grab him a jersey from the nearest Finish Line or Champs and then go plop down in a booth really close to a TV at Stats.  Get him a beer and some of their barbecue pork ribs.  This should guarantee your slot at the top of his Favorite Child list.

Dad With Kids On A Budget:
Shula's 347 Grill - If you happen to be counting pennies at the moment but you wanna get Dad something good, Shula's is offering to comp Dad's meal (lunch or dinner) if you buy something too.  There must be at least 2 people in your party and the entree of equal or lesser value will be free.  This place is located at the bottom of the Marriott Hotel in Buckhead across from Lenox and it has lots of TVs.  Sports Dad might be happy here too.

Please make your reservations TODAY!!!  I swear.  If I get one call from a Dad that had to go to IHOP or Waffle House because you waited until Sunday after church to pick up the phone, I'm gonna come to your house and say really ugly things REALLY LOUDLY!!!

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there!

By the way, I hate that picture of myself up top.  If I'm not mistaken, I was sick that day.  But, my daughters look beautiful in it so I did it for them.

Til we eat again.
