Apologies for a much delayed blog update- I suppose you can say that the past few months have been a whirlwind of events (and emotions). I went through a lot of personal things, but now I can say I’m much better! I’m still on that tedious job hunt, but in the meantime I’ve been spending a lot of me-time and checking things off my ever-long to do list.
To celebrate my little escape from the rough months, I decided to re-visit one of my absolute favorite places in Atlanta. Holeman & Finch Public House has the feel of a trendy New York City gastropub with delicious small plates and some of the best homemade drinks I’ve ever tried. May I mention that they’re also famous for their 10 p.m. burger? Each night they make exactly 24 burgers and you need to be a lucky seated guest to try and nab one of these gems. Honestly, I’m not sure if it’s the hype surrounding it or the genuine quality, taste and presentation of such a beautiful double cheeseburger, but I’ll have to say it’s been one of the best I’ve ever eaten.
My best friend Cici, who frequents the bar here, took me to grab drinks and dinner here. We ended up staying for four hours just talking and munching on a ton of small plates. Our lounge-server and fun little friend, Marshaun, took amazing care of us. We shared porchetta, deviled eggs, fresh Virginia oysters, and the 10 p.m. burger. Over the four hours, we had fun people-watching (it seems like the majority of their clientele are young, attractive Atlantan foodies) and of course, being best friends, we talked the night away. It’s been a hard few months for both of us, so it felt amazing to finally let loose and have some fun doing what we love most – talking and eating.
