FOOD REVIEW: Sprig Restaurant, Decatur GA

FOOD REVIEW: Sprig Restaurant, Decatur GA

Sprig is a great homey, little place where one feels very comfortable right from the start. There’s almost a “Cheers” atmosphere where you expect them to know your name! There were even fresh flowers at the bar!

To get started, Melanie chose the Butternut Squash Soup and I went with theFried Pickles. Melanie thought the soup was a little sweet, yet bland but a little salt and pepper quickly rectified that.

FOOD REVIEW: Nagoya Japanese Restaurant, Loganville GA

FOOD REVIEW: Nagoya Japanese Restaurant, Loganville GA

It had been a long time since we’d been to a Japanese hibachi restaurant. For those of you who are new to our planet or for some other reason have never ventured to such an establishment, you are in for a treat!

The style is somewhat different than most are generally accustomed to. Diners are seated around a large grill. The cook prepares the food there and usually there is much fanfare involved such as trickery with the cooking utensils and a good bit of humor involved.
