  1. There is very little about Hal's live and in person that would make you think "Creole Steakhouse". It is the classic upscale steakhouse experience...except it has carpet instead of wood floors.

    I think both The Palm and Morton's are both overpriced and overrated...although thats a characteristic of steakhouses, for the most part. Of the two, I think The Palm was better. I have not yet been to Rathbun Steak, so I can't speak on that.

  2. My favorite place for a steak in Atlanta is Hal's. It's about as old school as you can get - smoky bar, martinis, steaks and sides. The blue blazer and khaki pants crowd...but the filet there is the best I've ever had. Outside of that, I'd say Bones. Same deal...different street address. I dont like Bones as well as Hal's, though.

  3. had the early afternoon off and wanted to enjoy something light and summery...since we had sunshine here on tuesday before the snow came. sauteed some cherry tomatoes with lemon, zest, garlic, and tarragon. grilled some bread and poured them ontop. boy was it good. more info and the recipe on my blog.

  4. i made something quick and easy from a new(ish) cookbook, Adventures of an Italian Food Lover - smoked mozzarella cutlets. Used smoked mozz from the local farmers market and fried them up. So I didn't feel *quite* so guilty about them, I added a little salad of roasted red & yellow peppers, capers, SS&P, and balsamic and extra virgin oil. Very delicious.

  5. This is the first post I've made to the Dinner thread. Hopefully I'm doing this right!

    I made this awesome vegetarian chili recipe: Black Bean Chili with Butternut Squash and Kale. I adapted the recipe from one I found on Epicurious.com. I posted the recipe to my blog to launch a Chili Cook-Off I'm hosting.

    This chili was great and can stand up to strong heat and flavors without overwhelming the sweetness of the butternut squash. Very yummy.

  6. Bliss-

    Yes. It is. I dined there twice last year...and both experiences were revelatory. At both meals, there was a dish presented to me that almost brought me to tears. I recently suggested it to a friend for their birthday dinner...and he called me at 12:30 am and was only able to say "oh....my.....god" over and over again. I highly suggest doing the wine pairings with the meal. Rob, the manager at Quinones, is the most delightful person I've ever met in the restaurant business. He's something else and you're in good hands when you dine there.

    Let me know if you go and what your impressions are :)

  7. This is my first post to eGullet after being a long-time lurker and admirer!

    I made this cheesecake a few weeks ago - my first one! It's Grapefruit and Ginger Cheesecake, courtesy of a recipe i found on Epicurious.com. Very time consuming to prep but well worth it if you are a fan of ginger. The ginger taste was VERY pronounced. The cheesecake had amazing texture and was just gorgeous!
