New Restaurants in 2014

As part of my 101 in 1,001 Challenge, I wanted to visit and review 10 new restaurants in Atlanta over the 1,001 days.  I didn't expect to finish this challenge within 4 months!

I'm so thankful for Scoutmob and for all the deals we got to use to get 50% off our checks.  That made this challenge a lot easier on the bank.  Another perk: Caleb and I both have new favorite restaurants!  He can't get enough of Noni's meatball sub, and I would rather go to Miso Izakaya than almost anywhere else.  Anyway, here are quick blurbs on the ten!

Hudson Grill
Burgers in Downtown  |  My review
Caleb and I had a double date here with his brother Joshua and Josh's girlfriend Sarah after a Hawks game.  Great selection of burgers, and busy bar atmosphere.

Harbour Bar & Fish House
Seafood in Decatur  |  My review
 We took my friend from Benign here before he shipped out for the Navy.  Seemed to be a place frequented by the older generations, but the food was good.  We didn't try any of the fish, though!

Sushi in Midtown  |  My review
We had a sushi date here in February.  Ra gives great discounts during their 3-7pm Happy Hour, which means we'll probably go back.

Italian sandwiches in Old Fourth Ward  |  My review
We had a lovely Sunday lunch here out on the porch once the weather became friendlier.  Huge Italian sandwiches and unique and amazing garlic Parmesan fries worth visiting again.

Gekko Sushi
Sushi in Old Fourth Ward  |  My review
Frankly, we needed another sushi date night.  We'd recently taken our sushi class and I was so excited that we got to sit in front of the sushi bar so I could watch the chefs.  It was easy to pick out which one was the amateur and the expert.  I felt so cultured and knowledgeable!

Pan-Asian in Midtown  |  My review
I had a craving for Asian food, and after trying 2 other restaurants which ended up being closed, Noodle was the only one open for us.  I was hoping to be more impressed than I was, but I'd be willing to try it again.

 Miso Izakaya
Japanese in Old Fourth Ward  |  My review
When I first read about this place, I had a suspicion that it would become my favorite.  Even in the 6 months leading up to my first visit, I just knew I would love it.  Thankfully, Miso Izakaya did not disappoint.  I want to eat there every freakin' day.

Food Truck: Bento Bus
Japanese Street Food Truck  |  My review
 I saw "bento" and couldn't resist, even though there were lots of choices at the Food Truck Park!  So glad I went with my first choice!

 Food Truck: Spiedie Zone
Chicken Street Food Truck  |  My review
 This was Caleb's choice at the Food Truck Park.  I liked his loaded tots, they were definitely yummy and exciting, and I wouldn't have gotten them on my own.

Antico Pizza Napoletana (aka: Antico)
 Authentic Italian Pizza in Midtown by Tech | My review
One of my favorite parts about the restaurant is how it's part of our own Little Italy.  There's a gelato shop and an Italian store on the same corner.  Anyway, the  Antico experience was the closest thing I've seen to the authentic Italian eating style: big tables for strangers to share, and great food.  I loved it!
