Dining on the Town

Last week was Buckhead restaurant week.  For all of ya'll Atlantans, you know this is a great treat!  One week a year, over 30 of Buckhead's finest restaurants set a lovely 3 course meal at a special price for diners near and far.  Even with TWO crazy trips last week; one for me to Puerto Rico and one for Dear Hubs to Chicago, we still managed to partake in two stops on the restaurant week tour!

First stop was Nava.  This place is just timeless.  As part of the Buckhead Life Group restaurants you know you are in for a treat and this meal did not dissappoint.  Starting with the blood orange and jalepeno margaritas right through to the empenada appetizer, field greens with goat cheese and jalepeno vinegrette salad and delish hanger steak entree ... we were just so absolutely stuffed that we couldn't even fathom dessert (can you imagine???)!

Next stop was Capital Grille.  Located on the 8th floor right in the heart of Buckhead, this restaurant is a poised meal with gracious views of the city!  As always, good wine and good steak cannot be beat!  While we might have been the only people there not celebrating a birthday or anniversary ... I love going to places like this on a random day just because :).  Delicious meals and divine company ... what a week of good food!
