Monday is my food themed day, at least it has been for the past month. However I am kitchen sick from the time spent there over Thanksgiving. Instead I present you with a review of a restaurant, which is food related.
One of the reasons I was not happy about moving back down to Atlanta was a lack in vegetarian options at affordable restaurants. Having lived here previously I remembered what kind of options I had been relegated to at many restaurants: salads and possibly a few sides or appetizers. This isn’t really a bad thing– silver lining is that you save money by not eating out a lot. However my friends, which all come from work, live nowhere near by me. This means that in order to meet up and hang out with them, food will generally be involved and I hate seeming like the uber-picky sticks-her-nose-up-at-everything vegetarian.
However a few weeks ago one of my new friends, Jason, introduced me to Urban Pl8. This place makes other restaurants I love (like Fire and Ice in Boston) seem tame. Other than I had a deep love for both eateries, they bare no significant similarities. Urban Pl8 gets all of it’s food locally, the menu changes often according to what is in season and what they have available.
I got Lilly Cashew Nut Burger (pictures did not turn out) and it was spicy and messy and delicious. Thanks to what Jason calls my wooden legs (he meant hollow legs I’m sure) I was able to finish the ample portions they dish out. If you’re coming to or live in Atlanta area, you should definitely check Urban Pl8 out.
