Scallops at C & S
C & S in Vinings brings some great seafood to the table. And, perhaps their best is the scallops. Broiled and resting atop a bed of edamame-corn-red pepper-succotash, they melt in your mouth. Start with a plate of oysters with plenty of cocktail sauce and horseradish. Get your server to recommend the oysters. Think of them as your oyster sommelier. They know. Accompany it all with a super cold beer. Then move to a glass of pinot noir and get your scallops on. Yum!
You need your rest for tonight.
Farm Egg at Empire State South
It's a little bowl of heaven, with crunchy rice at the bottom and topped with a sunny-side up egg. Think of it a crucible for the chefs at Empire to experiment with their magic. Because what's in the middle changes by season. Sometimes beech mushrooms. Sometimes house-made bologna. Sometimes squash blossoms. Flavors blend. Everything locally sourced. Always good. Start out with the melons and peppercorn salumi. Pair with a pinot grigio. Then order a syrah, and the farm egg. A great meal.
