Lilly and I are now officially moved into Atlanta and happy to be here. Although we both loved Chicago Lilly is happy to be back in the South and I'm happy to explore a new part of America. And what better way to be welcomed to the south than with plates full of fried vittles.
Lilly had a college friend visiting us by the name of Mary Mac. While driving around we saw a diner with the same name. With nothing else but this coincidence to recommend it we went in. Turns out this restaurant is a real Atlanta institution (www.marymacs.com). It was great. Serendipitously we found one of the best places to begin sampling southern food.
I got blackened catfish, sweet potatoes, and fried green tomatoes. (My first fried green tomatoes and I loved them).
