The Food: Basil’s Restaurant Brings The Mediterranean To The South

                One of the fun things about food is that it’s not bland when it comes to variety. Culture is an amazing catalyst for cuisine.  So many cultures can use the same exact ingredients, and yet come with dishes that are completely different from each other.  Food is just not creating something that tastes good; it’s about a culture expression that tells a story of the history and character of a culture. When you find a good place that is true to the cuisine it serves, you are finding a place that is also true to the culture in which the cuisine was created. That’s why it was such a pleasure to find a spot who really gave you the experience in the culture of cuisine that they serve. A had a friend who wanted to have a Mediterranean experience, and when I went to search for the place to find good Mediterranean food, Basil’s Restaurant & Tapas was the perfect place to have a Mediterranean experience…

The Food: Serpas Restaurant | A Taste Of The Best Of The South

                Atlanta is a much of a big town as it is a metropolitan city.  For all of the urban development, expansive growth and the many different suburbs and city sectors, Atlanta still has the southern township feel, moving a lot slower than what you would expect a major city to move.  Nestled in the heart of the south, Atlanta is by far the shining star of the region below the Mason Dixon line. One of the oldest districts in Atlanta is the Old Fourth Ward district, which has become the city’s most sought after areas and a culinary and artistic innovative area in the Atlanta area.  Many of the areas industrial buildings and facilities have been re-imagined and redeveloped to house restaurants, offices, and artistic facilities and art venues. One of those buildings is Studioplex, a redevelopment that was once a cotton mill and factory, is now a complex that contains condos, office space and a wonderful restaurant that sits out in front of the development; Serpas.  Located right across from a former lighthouse tower, Serpas is one of the city’s best in southern culinary cuisine, and one that if you come to Atlanta, you should never leave without visiting at least once.
