Cibo e Beve: Your Italian neighborhood eatery

Posted by & filed under Food.

In Italian Cibo e Beve  literally means “Food and Drink”. Our natural inclination is to gravitate towards, or at least assume, that a more complex translation is better. In this case, this concise and simplistic title creates an aura or a mystique about the restaurant, and rightfully so, but this isn’t your run-of-the-mill Italian restaurant.

Rincon Latino Restaurant Review

Posted by & filed under Food.

As a native of Southern California I often find myself in search of the next great Spanish restaurant. Whether it’s tapas, pupusas, or just good old fashioned tacos, I just can’t get enough of the stuff.   Now, with that being said Mexican cuisine can end up being a bit pedestrian in and of itself.

Atlanta Buddha style hot spot

Don’t let the modest exterior of Tantra Restaurant and Lounge fool you; on the other side of that door lies a visual (and edible) feast, an eclectic mixture of styles and flavors from around the world. Quickly becoming considered one of Atlanta’s most exotic, exquisite and underground new restaurants, Tantra exists to stimulate the senses. Owner Max Mansoor Lofti, also known for his restaurant Divan, was nice enough to show us around and give as a taste of what Tantra has to offer.
