One of my favorite parts of the job is revisiting a restaurant years after I've shot the first look to find them booming with success! One such restaurant I've had the pleasure of shooting again was Twisted Soul Cookhouse & Pours in West Midtown. Chef Deborah VanTrece and her team of ladies are featured this month by the James Beard Foundation in the Cast Iron Chronicles. Take a look at some of their cocktails (with fresh juices and vegetables) and their stunning dishes-
I'm so happy to be published by Imbibe Magazine, I've been a long time follower of their work! These cocktails are by Mikey Kilbourne at One Eared Stag on Edgewood Avenue. Both are whisky based, both are delicious.
One of my recent projects that I've been most excited to share is the newly opened Molly B's Restaurant, located in the brand new Mercedes Benz Stadium. Working with Concentrics Restaurants and Chef Michael Bertozzi brought these dishes to life! I could go into detail, but these dishes definitely speak for themselves. If you're a sports fan or just a fan of fried chicken, be sure to check it out. The restaurant has a fantastic view of the field!
Working with the AJC, I've gotten a fantastic feel of the rush of new restaurants coming to Smyrna, courtesy of the new SunTrust Park. What impressed me most was the variety, that you could get anything from typical "ball park" food such as hotdogs and beer (although, these are probably the best hotdogs and beer you will ever have) to an upscale steakhouse experience with oysters, lobster, and Tomahawk Ribeye. These restaurants are open both during the Atlanta Braves games and non-event days. Take a peek at a couple of our First Looks including Terrapin Taproom and Fox Brothers BBQ, Todd English Tavern, and C. Ellet's.
Recently I had the pleasure of photographing a few dishes at Bacchanalia's new location in Westside for a ZAGAT First Look. Dishes pictured include the Summerland Farm Vegetables, an impressive "Fruits de Mer" seafood display, Red Cow Parmigiano, and a strawberry dessert with Georgia strawberries, milk, and honey. Always known for their farm-to-table style of cooking, this new location did not disappoint! As an added bonus, Star Provisions Market and Cafe is attached to the building.
