#SipAndNosh Archives – LUSHWORTHY

Over the past few years, Atlanta has seriously grown as a foodie city. Restaurants are popping up everywhere and chefs and restauranteurs here have been praised in publications across the country. To better take advantage of all the food and cocktail options here in the city, myself and Talaia of WholeYum.com created #SipAndNosh Food Tours.

#SipAndNosh is a walking food tour that will launch on Saturday, October 4th in downtown Decatur. We’ll visit five restaurants in the downtown Decatur area and sample various sips and bites.

Tickets are currently priced at $55 and will go up to $60 on September 27th. You can purchase tickets via Eventbrite.  I hope to see a few Lushworthy readers on the tour! (P.S. Look out for a special coupon code within the next few days)

If you’ve ever been to South Beach then you know that dining on the sidewalk while 8,000 people walk past you and your teeny-tiny (and probably wobbly) table is kinda “the thing” down there. I’ve done it once and I can’t say that I’m a fan. Thankfully though, the food and cocktail scene in South Beach offers far more than cooped up sidewalk dining. While on a visit to Miami last month, a friend and I had the opportunity to attend a food and cocktail tasting at 660 At The Angler’s, which is located in The Angler’s, a boutique hotel situated on Washington Avenue.

Upon stepping into the bar and lounge area at 660 At The Angler’s it’s apparent that this ain’t your average South Beach joint. The decor is what I would describe as cozy Bohemian. There’s various shades of maroon, lots of gold details, and tons of decorative pillows (hence the cozy factor). The bar area is relatively small (it seats about four people) and lacks the Bohemian feel of the neighboring lounge. I was really a fan of the decor in the lounge, so I wish it would have transitioned into the bar area. But bars were meant for drinking and not getting your inner interior decorator on, so it obviously wasn’t a major flaw.

Speaking of bars, I had the opportunity to sample a handful of cocktails at 660 At The Angler’s including the El Diablo, Southside Fizz, and 660 Sangria. Here’s a little breakdown of each of those drinks.

El DiabloHerradura Reposado, Creme de Cassis, fresh lime juice, and ginger beer.

Don’t let the devilish name fool you. The El Diablo is truly a sweetheart when it comes to the palate. The Creme de Cassis does a fine job of mellowing out the tequila and ginger beer always makes everything better. All in all, the El Diablo is both sweet and highly drinkable (i.e. you might just forget you’re drinking booze).
