Uhm…I repeat – Bacon, Flank Steak, Donuts…I don’t really think I need to say anything else. A few months ago a friend of mine that keeps me in the know on all the tech + art + local Atlanta goodness invited me to PUSHSTART Kitchen “a southern speakeasy feeding the planet sixteen at a time.” I don’t remember the first meal I had that night but I know it was amazing. The entire evening was a complete experience. From the location itself, to the hosts’ hospitality and overall wonderful personalities, to the amazing food, to the atmosphere which is unique, special, and memorable.
Needless to say, Niña and I have been back for seconds a number of times.
The entire experience lasts about 4 hours and starts at around 7 pm. Each course is paired with a drink and I always fast the day we are attending…this way I can fully engage in the eating and drinking without worrying about calories or feeling guilty about indulging in delicious goodness.
This being said – THE FOOD IS VERY HEALTHY AND FILLING. There is absolutely no reason why anyone on any eating plan can not enjoy every meal at PushStart!
The portions are a perfect size and the food is always extremely healthy, organic, and local.
So, fast if you’d like or DON’T, it’s up to you, but please try and visit PushStart if at all possible – it’ll be a night you’ll not soon forget!
