Thursday, September 11, 2008
George Tice, the owner, took us for a little tour around the restaurant and we learned that all of the fabulous paintings were by no other than Steve Penley. Being a fellow UGA grad myself, I couldn't help but applaud his decision to have such fine artwork displayed in his restaurant.
The restaurant hosts monthly wine tastings with a different theme each month. They all begin at 6:30 p.m. and include close to 15 different samplings of wine. I'll be sure to sign up for the next one.

Eat well . . . Do good. Every meal savored at Samaritan House of Atlanta’s Café 458 helps Atlanta’s homeless men and women move a step closer to self-sufficiency. Since its inception in 1986, the award-winning restaurant in the Historic Sweet Auburn District has passed on its proceeds, including tips, to the cause. After more than 23,000 guests, that’s a lot of proceeds. Now, guests can enjoy a Thursday and Friday night dinner for a cause menu in addition to the weekend brunch menu they’ve enjoyed for years. The new dinner menu comes from Café 458 Executive Chef Jonathan Metellus and Culinary Institute of America Alumnus and includes such mouthwatering dishes as lobster ravioli, seared filet mignon, sunflower-encrusted salmon and creamy polenta cake. Sit down to a three-course, prix fixe dinner for $28or order à la carte. Bring your own wine ($5 corkage fee). Enjoy dinner from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. each Thursday and Friday evening; brunch is served from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. each Sunday. For reservations, call 404-525-3276 or make online at OpenTable.

Bratkins – n. bad mood brought on by lack of sugar and carbohydrates in one’s diet.
Suggested usage: Bypassing the Little Debbies for a week had given Sheila such a case of the Bratkins that she slammed her shopping cart into the cookie display in a faux effort to carb load while remaining on her Atkins diet.
