#43 and #63

February 20, 2010

 

Turns out that 23 of the items listed in Atlanta Magazine’s 67 Things Every Atlantan Must Do! are restaurants, and even more than that have to do with food.   

 #43 on the list is “Belly up the The Brick Store Pub’s Bar.”

On Mardi Gras, Anna, Kimberly (and TJ) and I bellyed up.  And, it was worth every minute bite of it!  The Brick is located in the very adorable downtown Decatur.  The styling has the feel of an authentic old English Pub.  Mind you, I have never been to an authentic old English Pub, but I am certain that when I do, it will be exactly like The Brick.

Just reading the beer descriptions and the dinner menu will bring a tear to your eye, and everything that we tried definitely lived up to the description.

 

 Fresh Creamy Pasta

 

Curry Rice

 

And, handmade pretzels.

 

We also completed #63 on the list, which happens to be a regular stop for me…

“Eat Global at Your Dekalb Farmers Market.”  The Dekalb Farmers Market is not your traditional local farmers’ market.  It is a ginormous indoor international grocery store.  In fact, it is more like the largest produce stand you have ever experienced attached to the largest butcher shop you have ever seen, attached to a fantabulous seafood market, attached to a gourmet cheese shop, attached to a fresh bakery.  Oh, and don’t forget about the florist, gourmet coffee shop, deli, and pastry bar!!!!!

    That sounds too fun! I have had the good fortune to eat at many an English pub, and that one looks like it might pass muster. Would you be up for going again sometime? More importantly, why, oh, why have I never been to the Dekalb Farmers Market??

  2. Troye Says:

    We will definitely go there again. Chris NEEDS to go, and it was really a fantastic joint!
    As to your DFM question, I have no good answer. There is absolutely no good reason that we have not been there together already!!!!!
