Suprica

July 20, 2015

Today’s post highlights yet another one of Ford Fry’s amazing restaurants! Located in Krog City Market is Superica. Superica has a nice laid back atmosphere, and has a very similar feel to his restaurant El Felix located at The Avalon. From Appetizers to Cocktails to the Main Courses you can’t go wrong. Of course every good tex-mex meal begins with a tasty refreshing drink. One of our personal favorites is “The O.G.” Margarita which features : El Jimador Reposado, triple sec, fresh lime. We then recommend you get an order of their fresh guacamole and of course QUESO! Now here is the trick, they make their tortillas hot and fresh on the spot so make sure you ask for an order to dip into your queso, it is amazing! Top off your amazing meal with their Steak Tacos Al Carbon. It comes with 3 huge homemade tortillas with several strips of their amazing Steak inside as well as charred onions, fresh cilantro & avocado salsa verde. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Superica is a great spot for a date night. They also have very reasonable prices for the quality of food you get. For an even better bargain they have great lunch specials. Check it out and let them know EatYourHeartOutATL sent you, then drop us a message and tell us what you thought and if you discovered some other tasty items on the menu!

the optimist

Today’s Blog Post highlights The Optimist. When people think of Atlanta food, the last thing they think of is Seafood but The Optimist has everything a seafood lover could want! The food is so good and so fresh the only thing missing is a water front view but don’t worry the food makes up for it! If you have a love for Oyster’s you will definitely need to check out their Oyster Bar. They have over 15 different types of Oysters from raw oysters to ones from their wood-fired oven. If your not a huge Oyster fan that is okay too because they have a variety of menu items. Our last visit we tried a little bit of everything. But first, let us give you some cocktails to try out. If you are a bourbon fan, then we recommend the Sunset Boulevard. The base of this cocktail is a smooth Buffalo Trace Bourbon with Orange bitters, and a flamed orange in it. If your not into the sweeter cocktails then we recommend the Jolly Roger. It tastes exactly like a raspberry jolly rancher! For snacks we started with some she-crab soup that came with a side of shrimp cornbread. The flavors were amazing and was a great dish to share. We then had an order of the “peel & eat” shrimp that has this amazing spicy “come-back” sauce. We also ordered the basamati fried rice which included curry, peanuts, and an egg in it. It was one of the best dishes of fried rice we have had! To finish off the appetizers we ordered the corn milk hush puppies that were “beignet” style which means it had powdered sugar dusted on top. Powder sugar makes everything better, right!? Finally, we capped our amazing dinner with the best Fish & Chips! The fish tasted so fresh it was like it was right off the water! The Optimist is the perfect date night or even trying to win over a business client 🙂
It is a very popular place, so if you plan on going on the weekend make sure you get a reservation at least a week in advance. Don’t just take our word for how amazing it is though, go out and treat yourself to this amazing place!

cooks & soldiers

June 1, 2015

Last month we took a trip to the newly opened Cooks & Soldiers located in the Westside of Atlanta. Cooks & Soldiers is an upscale restaurant that serves tapas and they have larger portions that they cook on a wood-fire grill. The wood-fire grill gave a great flavor to the food! We had been waiting for months with anticipation for them to open up this new spot on the Westside. We like to say “The Westside is the Best side!” Going in I expected it to be amazing, but somehow it exceeded my expectations! It was easy getting a reservation; we booked one a few days in advance. From the outside looking in, it doesn’t look that big but once you get in side you see it is much better with ample seating. Its cool how they have a window into their kitchen it gives the place a great vibe. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu (which is helpful for someone who isn’t fluent in pronouncing Spanish dishes). We went for dinner so of course we had to have a cocktail! Our table ordered the C&S Old Fashioned and a Picon Punch, both were sensational! When we go to restaurants we like to share a bunch of different things and that way we can try a lot of the menu! Too start they have dishes called “Pintxos Tradicionales” these are small dishes served on top of toasted bread. We tried the Hongos y Setas which was topped with coal roasted mushrooms, goat cheese creme fraiche, and black truffle. It was amazing! Next, we ordered “Pintxos Especiales” which were there small plates. We decided to order “Huevos Revuletos” which includes scrambled eggs, more wood grilled mushrooms, truffle and toast. The “Patatas” was definitely the most unexpected thing on the menu, homemade French Fries served with a Idiazabal (cheese) fondue and homemade ketchup. The “Bikini” was essentially a fancy grilled cheese with “Jamon Iberico” which is like a Spanish Ham. The final thing we ordered was there “Chistorra in a Blanket” which was Chistorra Sausage wrapped in a croissant and topped with a cider glaze as well as a maple-mustard allioli on the side. What I really enjoyed about Cooks & Soldiers was that even if you have no idea what the things on the menu are, the staff is very friendly and helpful in describing what each dish is. We definitely want to go back and try more things. Cooks & Soldiers is the perfect place for either a date night or just a night out with friends!

the best city in the south

May 29, 2015

Welcome to Eat Your Heart Out ATL! This is a blog focused on bringing the perfect place for you to dine in the city. Our blog currently consists of 2 writers in which we go out all around ATL looking for the best spots. The idea came to us when some of our friends constantly came up to us asking us for places to eat in the city. We then thought, the perfect way was to start a food blog where they can constantly access all the places we venture out too. This way they can decide which places are good for specific occasions. Our blog consists of many ideas, whether it’s for a special date night, or a birthday for one of your best friends. Our goal here at Eat Your Heart Out ATL is to bring it all to you! After all, there’s not a better way to unite people than over a delicious meal! Are we right?! We believe Atlanta is one of the coolest cities and have the best places to eat all around. We love venturing from all places from “hole in the walls” to 5 star restaurants we want to have recommendations for them all! We hope this blog serves as a great resource for you when looking for the perfect place to eat for the right occasion.

Tyler and Brittany are the faces behind Eat Your Heart Out Atl. The couple resides in Atlanta, GA and love everything about the city! From the restaurants, the coffee shops, to the music, to the shops, they love it all. Their hearts are to see Atlanta flourish and for people to share the same love as them. The idea came when they frequently found many of their friends coming to them asking for the perfect spot for anything ranging from a date night to a birthday dinner. They both are marketing graduates from Georgia Gwinnett College. The two have been best friends for years but it wasn’t until February 2014 that Brittany decided to give Tyler a try and go on a date. The two love trying new spots whether it’s for a date night or a night out with friends. They love to go on Saturday adventures – no agenda, just exploring new places around town. Together they love to venture the streets on Atlanta (Brittany always with a camera in hand), finding the new place to eat and drink at, and drink lattes.
