Weekend in Midtown, Atlanta

By | November 6, 2005

Friday night after dropping the kids off at the in-laws’, Rob took me to the very charming Dante’s Down the Hatch. They are a fondue restaurant that has a setting created to look like a ship tied to a wharf. You pay more to be on the ship, because that’s where you hear and see the live jazz. Rob had reservations to be on the ship, which was really nice and romantic. We had a one sided booth that looked over the ship. The inside of the restuarant is just amazing. There is water under the ship and that’s the home of several crocodiles that are Dante’s pets.

Then, we headed back to our bed and breakfast, the Ansley Inn. It was a quite an enchanting and homey feeling environment.

Saturday we walked over to Piedmont park and walked around enjoying the cool weather and all the fall colors.

After leaving The Fox, we walked over to The Varsity for a late night dose of indigestion.

Sunday we went to Margaret Mitchell’s House and the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.

    Haven’t I seen that restaurant featured on the Food TV Network? It really rings a bell, and I *think* that I remember seeing the inside of it and thinking, “Wow, cool!” Glad you had a good time. Sounds fantastic!
