Salt in Downtown Alpharetta

The Salt Factory Pub has 3 locations! (Roswell, Woodstock, & Alpharetta) We went to the one in downtown Alpharetta! Upon arriving at Salt my mom told me I had to try the Pulled Pork Taco appetizer. She did not steer me wrong, they were A-mazing! (As you can see!) Loaded up with yumminess and flavor! These may not be a first date item to order as they were quite messy and taco sauce smeared all over your face is not ideal! But hey as long as you both have taco sauce on your face, I don't see the problem! haha Anyway.. seriously try these tacos! I got the Tuscan Kale & Pecorino Salad + Grilled Chicken as my main (to balance out the tacos of course). It was very good and the portion size was perfect. 

Other items ordered at our table (we we're a table of 5! C'mon I could not eat all of this food by myself, well maybe...) were The Gastropub Pizza, Salt Factory Mussels, Chicken Pot Pie, and two Burgers (can't remember which ones!) There were no complaints at our table, so I'm confident you will love all of these options as well!

Taverna at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta

Let me introduce you to Taverna! A beautifully decorated Italian restaurant that feels like you just stepped off the streets of Rome.  They also have the cutest covered patio! First of all, they gave us free Focaccia to dip in the olive oil & balsamic vinegar which is a huge win in my book! As my main course, I had the Taverna salad and added grilled chicken.  It was very colorful and tasty as you can see, YUM! My coworker, Jessica, had the Gnocchi which she said was delish! Taverna is strategically placed in the heart of The Shops in Buckhead! So after you work up an appetite shopping at Planet Blue, make sure to stop by here and grab a bite to eat!

Corso Coffee at the Shops Buckhead Atlanta

You know those Coffee shops that make you feel like you are in the middle of New York City or somewhere in Italy. I'm talking quaint with cute/simple decor and delicious looking lattes that mine as well be art pieces.   Plus all types of amazing gourmet sandwiches with ingredients like prosciutto, mozarella, tomatoes, and arugula. Corso Coffee is that place! You could be at a business meeting at the corner table or flying solo up at the bar. Plus there is plenty of window seating either way. As for what's in my plate... I opted for a vanilla latte and the Corso sandwhich.  Yes, it was just as amazing as it looks!

Bar Taco Chastain Park

     One of the most Instagrammable restaurants I have ever been to is Bar Taco! I recently did a Insta story takeover for their account @bartacolife and their food presentation couldn't have made it more simple! They are promoting their #bartacosecret taco which changes every couple of months.  This month is the lobster taco! Quite tasty, if you're a taco lover like me (let's be honest is there anyone that isn't because I want to me you.. or do I? haha) you will be a huge fan of this place! My personal favorite is their Tuna Poke! (bottom of the first pic!) It's to die for.. Plus they have several locations in 8 states so make sure to see if there's one near you!
