Atlanta Dining News

Decatur's Sprig is now open for lunch Wednesdays through Sundays.

Tantra, a new South Buckhead restaurant inspired by sensual foods is now open. Not sure what sensual food entails? Be on the lookout for alluring dishes such as foie gras, pomegranate braised boneless beef short rib, and grilled ostrich with eggplant caponata and caramelized cipollini onion. Still confused? Me, too. Actually, years ago I dined at an aphrodisiac restaurant in Buenos Aires, Te Matere Ramierez (Spanish for I'm going to kill you, Ramierez) and it involved an X-rated puppet show. One can only hope!

Watershed is now doing high tea Thursday through Saturday from 3-5. For $15 enjoy tea and a tiered stand of toasted pecans, cheese straws, tea cakes, pound cake and selected sandwiches, such as curry shrimp, goat cheese and cress, and pimento cheese. Whenever I visit London, I'm a sucker for high tea at the Orangery at Kensington Palace. There's just something so very elegant about tiny crustless sandwiches and pastries piled high. I'm hoping to lure my mother ITP one of these days so we can go!
