Olmsted & Article 14 : Two New Atlanta Restaurants, One Midtown Location [Openings] 5

Posted by Foodie Buddha on August 06, 2012

So what we have here is more “coming soon” news in the form of Olmsted and Article 14 (two separate Atlanta restaurants).  To be honest, I can’t stand writing this stuff as it makes me sound like a stodgy journalist … something I’m most definitely not (on either front). Be that as it may, the situation is that these two compadres are getting inserted into Symphony Tower (aka – 1180 Peachtree) in the not too distant future.

A few months back, the biz chronicle broke word that Legacy Restaurant Partners (STATS, Max’s, Glenn’s Kitchen, etc.) planed to open a restaurant in the former Trois space in Midtown.  Seeing as it’s a cavernous “room”(something like 14,000 square feet), it’s not a total surprise to hear that there are two restaurants going in.  There’s a little bit more to be said … so click that little linky thing that says “continue reading” if you fancy yourself curious.

Giant Octopus Cake: 200LBs Of Edible Art [Molluscs]

Giant Octopus Cake

So in my spare time, I like to browse the internet.  Shocking, I Know.  Well, during a little R&D, I came across this this monstrosity on flickr!  That’s right folks, it’s 200lbs of edible octopus.  As shocked as I was to see it, I was more surprised when I realized that it comes courtesy of Karen Portaleo and Highland Bakery.

Not being a cake man, I’m not entirely sure how much of this is actually cake.  Whatever it is … it’s freaking cool!  As of now, there are 165 images in the HB specialty cake set, I suggest you waste some time there.  Look out Duff … you’ve got some competition!

Highland Bakery In Inman Park: Atlanta Sub & Sandwich Tour #11 2

Posted by Foodie Buddha on May 13, 2009

A long time ago in a sandwich shop, far away…

highland bakery - welcome to the hb

I best most of ya’ll thought I had forgotten about the sub & sandwich tour.  Truth is, I just got a bit worn out on sandwiches.  While I did grab a few sandwiches in the past few weeks, my rate of consumption plummeted.  The time off has rejuvenated me and I hope to have this thing wrapped up in the next couple of weeks.

To get things back up and running, I elected to visit the Highland Bakery in Inman Park.  In true Foodie Buddha fashion, the meal let me down.  While many people revel in the fresh baked goods and the variety of options on the menu, my meal just didn’t come together as I had hoped.  Services issues aside (they aren’t factored in on the tour), I found both of my sandwiches disappointing.
