Two New Lunch Spots, a 90-Pound Pig and Cheese

Welcome to the land of milk and weekend.

Thursday
Friday
A New Spot from Team La Tagliatella
THE DAVIA CODE

A New Spot from Team La Tagliatella

La Tagliatella. Solid little spot. And since you like solid little spots, the same team just opened another one called daVia in Dunwoody. It’s a new fast-casual lunch situation. Italian wraps. Pasta bowls. Meatballs. Those are the kinds of things you’ll find there. No, really, we checked.

Lunch. It’s What’s for Lunch. Here.
BLOOMING UNION

Lunch. It’s What’s for Lunch. Here.

When you start fading in the afternoon, you need coffee. Or perhaps, coffee guava sauce. Drenched over Kentucky-ham croquette sliders. At this new place called Union Hill. It’s lunch-only now, but soon they’ll start dinner and bar service. For when you start fading around 8pm.

The Cheese Gods Smile Upon You
CHEESE FRAME

The Cheese Gods Smile Upon You

So here comes a cheese festival. It’s... a cheese festival. Pretty self-explanatory. But in case you need some help: about 50 cheesemakers are converging upon Park Tavern with their finest dairy products. And some of them are making grilled cheeses, which you get to judge. Cheese.

Saturday
8 Years of Krog Bar Means Pig. Again.
KROG PRINCE

8 Years of Krog Bar Means Pig. Again.

Something you hold very near and dear is turning eight this weekend. And it’s Krog Bar. And that means you should take a date there and commence with the wine-ing, paella-ing and 90-pound-slow-roasted-pig-ing. (We’re just saying you should go eat and drink that stuff, is all.)

Monday
For Haven’s a Jolly Good Fellow...
PUSHING TEN

For Haven’s a Jolly Good Fellow...

Speaking of places throwing parties for themselves that really end up being for you... Haven. Swing by with someone you wouldn’t mind cheers-ing a few gratis beers with, eating gratis meatstuffs with and listening to a live trio band with. So... someone you’re celebrating their 10-year anniversary with.
