Moving to Georgia--we knew we would be itching to try all the great southern fare---from barbeque to grits and fried catfish. Admittedly, southern food is not the healthiest, but you have to indulge in local food occasionally right?
A great little date night restaurant we found is Ray's on the River in Sandy Springs. This restaurant, which is worth dressing up for, is situated along the Chattahoochee River. Scott and I went for a date night, and after dinner we walked along a little path overlooking the river.
My favorite part of the meal was probably the appetizer: goat cheese pimento fritters. I absolutely love goat cheese, and southerners seems to apparently obsessed with pimento cheese. It was a surprisingly delicious combination. We split a huge salad and a side of creamed spinach. For the main course Scott opted for trout and I couldn't resist the shrimp and grits, which were amazing.
Shockingly we were too full for dessert, but I'm sure we'll try to save some room next time.
