When Hurricane Katrina struck, displacing thousands of people and destroying homes and cities, the local eatery opened their doors for a Sunday buffet. The event raised close to $7,000. Customers came out in droves to sample the Cajun tinged cuisine and the food vendors donated the food for the buffet, while the servers volunteered their time and donated their tips.</p> Dining Guide Names & Faces News Tue, 02 Feb 2010 15:15:51 -0500 Land of the lost http://archive.thecitizen.com/node/41611 <p>Special to The Citizen</p> <p>Opening and owning a restaurant is a difficult business. There is some statistic out there that says that most restaurants fail within the first six months they are open. Hollywood romances fare better than a lot of restaurants, especially if they aren’t franchises and are labors of love of the people who owned them.</p> Dining Guide Tue, 19 Jan 2010 16:37:57 -0500 Welcome to Moe's http://archive.thecitizen.com/node/41598 <p>There was probably a time, somewhere in the late 20th century, where the prospect of burritos being made in front of you for lunch or dinner wasn’t all that appealing. Thank God for the future. Moe’s Southwest Grill, which isn’t just a burrito restaurant, prepares numerous dishes while you wait with a wide variety of fresh ingredients and a whole lot of style.</p> Dining Guide Tue, 19 Jan 2010 15:58:00 -0500 Whatever your theme, Linda can create a cake for it http://archive.thecitizen.com/node/39347 <p>If you walk into Anthony’s Pizza and Pasta you will find a bakery to the left of the restaurant.

Word of mouth passing among friends, neighbors, co-workers and colleagues who have tasted some of the delicacies, has sent a lot of customers to Mary Jane Hollister. Her heavenly display case and the taste of the cupcakes, cheesecakes, cookies and coffee have kept them coming back.</p> Dining Guide Wed, 19 Aug 2009 13:55:20 -0400 South of the border http://archive.thecitizen.com/node/38044 <p>By F.C. Foodie<br /> Special to The Citizen</p> <p>It seems like if you threw a rock in this county, you’d hit a Mexican restaurant. Of course, if you did throw a rock and hit a Mexican restaurant, you’d be arrested and likely charged with a hate crime, so please, no rock throwing.</p> Dining Guide Tue, 14 Jul 2009 14:54:28 -0400 Big Daddy's Oyster Bar is ultimate adult hangout http://archive.thecitizen.com/node/38043 <p>It’s been four years since Big Daddy’s Oyster Bar opened its doors in Peachtree City and in those years the eatery has evolved into an establishment that prides itself on great food and a fun atmosphere for grown ups.</p> Dining Guide Tue, 14 Jul 2009 14:52:48 -0400 It's a Grind offers tasty respite http://archive.thecitizen.com/node/35020 <p>By JOYCE BEVERLY<br /> jbeverly@thecitizen.com</p> <p>“Making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got.

Foodie<br /> Special to The Citizen</p> <p>If you asked 100 people what their favorite food in the whole wide world is, one of the top answers on the Family Feud board would be pizza. It is a delicious treat that can be enjoyed for any meal of the day. The area is blessed with a number of great choices to grab a pie. Here are some of Foodie’s thoughts.</p> Dining Guide Tue, 17 Feb 2009 14:15:00 -0500 WK Wings in Fayetteville features the flavors that everyone loves http://archive.thecitizen.com/node/34503 <p>With nine locations in the metro Atlanta area, not including the one in Fayetteville by the dollar theater in Banks Station, WK Wings has won over people with their incredibly flavorful wings. The franchise is known for their high quality products and excellent customer service. The location in Fayetteville, operated by Harry Kinzey, prides itself on adhering to the principle of good food, fast. The restaurant has been open in Banks Station since last July and is seen by some as one of the area’s best kept secrets. Kinzey and many of the regulars at WK Wings feel that it is time the secret gets out.</p> Dining Guide Thu, 22 Jan 2009 14:29:23 -0500 Everything old is new again http://archive.thecitizen.com/node/34502 <p>By F.C. Foodie</p> <p>In its heyday (the 1990s), Ginza was one of the top restaurants in the county. For a long time it was the county’s only Japanese steakhouse and sushi bar and it was very popular, both among the large Japanese population in the area and the gai-jin (did Foodie spell that and use that word correctly?). And then, somewhere along the way, the badness happened. There were new owners, the quality dipped, the restaurant closed and, for a long time, the building sat empty.</p> Dining Guide Thu, 22 Jan 2009 14:27:18 -0500 City Café & Bakery Chef named Atlanta ‘Chef of the Year’ http://archive.thecitizen.com/node/34501 <p>Jorg Schatte, owner and chef of Fayetteville’s City Café and Bakery, has been selected Atlanta’s “Chef of the Year” by the UCCA, The United Culinary Chef Association.</p> Dining Guide Thu, 22 Jan 2009 14:25:59 -0500 Rosa is the first name you need to know in home cooking http://archive.thecitizen.com/node/33341 <p>She has boundless energy, hand slicing bright yellow squash, chopping onions, and prepping all of the fresh ingredients for the days offerings.

Foodie - Good burgers http://archive.thecitizen.com/node/33340 <p>This column has long been a space to trumpet the savory delicacies of Fayette County’s finest dining establishments, but even this gourmand has a (very) soft spot for dishes that aren’t served on the finest china or under glass. This month, I would like to examine the burger, both cooked at franchises of some of the more popular fast food eateries, and at some of the area’s sit down restaurants.</p> Dining Guide Wed, 19 Nov 2008 12:42:55 -0500 Dishing with Mike - Tortellini Romano http://archive.thecitizen.com/node/31715 <p>In this episode, Mike Hutcheson prepares Tortellini Romano, a great dish for college kids learning to cook on their own.</p> Citizen TV Dining Guide Videos Tue, 16 Sep 2008 09:14:58 -0400
