Let me repeat – TATERS, PORK, BANANAS! That was PushStart’s e-mail header this week – needless to say, I responded immediately.
For those of you who may have forgotten about PushStart (feel free to refresh your memory a bit), but for those who still don’t know – PushStart Kitchen is “A Southern speakeasy feeding the planet sixteen at a time.” Run by a husband and wife super duo, the food is phenomenal, the atmosphere is 100% unique, and the whole experience is unforgettable. And, anyone who knows me, knows I am a sucker for an experience and especially a completely memorable experience….and PushStart delivers at every level.
From the trendy location, to the gracious hosts, to a train that comically interrupts dinner conversations, to the drinks and the food, PushStart engages every single one of your senses while doing something more. You see, PushStart is doing something in Atlanta most other supper clubs, restaurants, bars, venues, etc. only dream about accomplishing. Yeah, the food and hospitality are bar none some of the best I’ve ever experienced, but Zach and Cristina are doing something special with PushStart. Their small “supper club” is more like a “supper community” which is helping build and contribute to the existing Atlanta community…even if it is happening “sixteen at a time.”
So, the next time you’re looking for something exciting and new to do, be sure and check out PushStart Kitchen…because, even if you’ve been there countless times, every time is a new experience.
Now, I know the proof is in the pudding, so for those of you who need a little more convincing…
LAST NIGHT’S PUDDING!
Side Note: Being Cuban I was a bit biased about last night’s menu…I mean Pork, Black Beans, Yuca, and Banana is any Cuban’s dream!…but it was nonetheless one of my favorites I’ve had at PushStart.
