Our trip started in Atlanta, in the Loews hotel.
I thoroughly enjoyed that king-sized bed.
Don't mind if I do!
Our flight was a bit late, so we only had 5 minutes to get ready after checking in.
Our reservation was for Ecco. This is a photo of the statement lighting in the front entryway.
Pretty much the entire trip was all about the food and the drink for me. That is evident in my appetizer... fried goat cheese.
Charcuterie plate, of course. Delicious.
For dinner I had duck confit. Amazing.
After a little too much wine, half of us walked the few short blocks back to our hotel. We accidentally stumbled upon the Margaret Mitchell house. How random.
Such a cute little house in amongst the larger buildings around it.
I had grits for the first time... and they were good! I mean, bacon: check, cheese: check; what's not to like? Doesn't this look amazing? It is a Georgian Benedict: Chipotle hollandaise and a crab cake. Yup.
On a side note, I am totally digging the transition between the lobby floor and the restaurant floor.
Full of food and coffee, we took off for the first of many Shaw factory tours.
