Octopus Bar

Got a chance to finally try this new late-night spot in East Atlanta after cancelling three times with my best buddy who’s been cajoling me to go for the last week. Open only beginning around 10PM at the bar section of So Ba, the menu is a collaboration between So Ba’s chef Nhan Le and ex-Miller Union chef Angus Brown. I can describe the food in one word: EXCELLENT. This is mind-blowing food for the location, space, price point, and meal time.

Octopus Bar

I’ll leave the long version to Foodie Buddha. My short and sweet: amazing food. It’s like eating Restaurant Eugene food in Buford Highway. Chef Angus is a genius.

What I ate:
Maine Lobster Roll — lots of meat with just a hint of dressing (just the way it should be and just the way I like it)
Curry Beef & Pork Trotter Pot Pie — oh the buttery crust and the curry stew
Salt & Pepper Shrimp — (with shells) so crispy, perfect taste (you don’t need to go to BuHi)
Uni Carbonara — OMG
Braised Rabbit — OMG
Banh Beo — chewy Asian rice cake topped with minced shrimp
Pork Belly Musubi — aka pork (sushi) maki rolls
Hazelnut Panna Cotta — OMG it tasted like tootsie rolls

GO NOW. I mean it!!!

Sweeten your tooth: The Shed at Glenwood

The Shed at Glenwood

They have this insanely good yogurt. Made of goat’s milk. Then topped with dates, honey, and something crunchy. It plays mind tricks on me. So delicious.

Oh, and the carrot cake is so moist and so good.

Go ahead. Give in. Indulge your sweet tooth. I don’t have one but the yogurt really does it for me. Tell them C-dot sent you.

The Shed at Glenwood

The Shed at Glenwood is one of my favorite places — food is simple yet well executed, and well, just plain good.  I’ve never had a bad experience here and service is always on point.

The Shed at Glenwood

On a recent visit a couple of weeks ago, I feasted on their famous Beet Salad. It had roasted Beets, organic Vermont goat cheese and a drizzle of balsamic dressing. This is a must try here. Must. It is a perfect balance of sweet, tart, and salty in subtle amounts. I simply love this.

My dinner date’s lentil soup was full of flavor, chunky, and comforting. It was a huge portion and good enough for sharing.

My grilled all natural ribeye steak was perfection. It is a thick piece of meat with flavor all the way through. The side of jumbo lump crab meat in drawn butter was fresh and a great surf with the turf. The mashed potatoes were creamy and gave a nice background to the main.

You all know by now that I am not fond of desserts (give me fresh baked bread anytime) but our server sold us into trying the white chocolate raspberry cheesecake. It was great; cheesy but not cloyingly sweet, with a hint of raspberries.

I make it a point to visit when Chef Lance Gummere has a Prix Fixe offering. It is a great value and a good way to get introduced to his cooking. Our dinner came to $120 before tip for two people (3-courses plus a glass of wine). Incidentally, I am not a drinker and would prefer Diet Coke over anything else. But I found a favorite in their Sangria which is made with fresh fruits, red wine, and ginger ale. It is sweet which is why I love it. And it is also strong (for me) — a few sips rendered me light headed).

Insider tip:
My car GPS couldn’t find this place so I had to call for directions: use this address instead: 890 Glenwood Ave SE.

I finally got a chance to visit The Depot. It’s this new gastro pub serving New Orleans-style cuisine in a restored freight depot. I must admit, the place is impressive.

Most of the architectural details have remained intact with a touch of modernism added for good measure. The front and side entry, concrete floors, part of the brick wall, the platform, tracks, have all been retained which lend a nostalgic feel to the place. While modern patio furniture, an added wing that now houses the kitchen, a wine cabinet, red leather bar stools, provide a refreshing contrast. The double-sided bar is expansive and serves as the focal point. I particularly love the red club-style bar stools and the original tracks put to good use as foot rests.

Outside, a huge three-part patio beckons. The main part, geared more for dining, includes festive green and white chairs complementing black tables, all on a stone-tiled floor with a fountain to boot. There’s a small strip on the side by the grass (right beside the beltline) that provides additional seating. And the best part, a few steps up where the original platform extended, are bar stools and pub tables facing the double-sided bar. By allowing access to the bar outside, you can still be part of the action. It’s an inventive design and use of space.

I was able to try a few things and those that made a lasting impression include the sweet potato chips (thinly sliced and fried crisp), the crab fingers (hefty sized, thin batter), pizza (good, chewy crust), and, of course, the raw oysters. Menu items range from $8-15. Drinks are generally cheaper by a buck or two. All in all, The Depot offers a hip place to have a drink. Having a unique take on bar food is just an added bonus.
