Midtown Review: Deckard's Kitchen and Kegs

Friday, December 3, 2010 0
Now this is my kind of restaurant! When you walk into Deckard's Kitchen and Kegs you walk into this rustic atmosphere with beautiful wood floors and brick walls. It definitely sets the mood for your meal. The inside is incredible and they also have a great patio area as well.

Before having lunch, I asked some of my followers on Twitter what they recommended for me to get. My responses were mostly people that have never eaten there since it only has been open for a couple months. But I was recommended by @RestaurantsATL to get the onion rings so at least I had a start. As I looked over the menu, I saw soo many things I wanted to get. From the variety of steam kettles including shrimp and grits, beef goulash, and thai shrimp and scallops to their Farmhouse ham and cheese sandwich with gruyere, pit ham, and beer mustard, this place has it goin on! I ended up ordering their meatloaf sandwich which isn't normally on the lunch menu but I saw it on their website and pretty much begged (I know I'm lame). They were nice enough to give it to me with a side of macaroni and cheese. My dad, after much contemplating, ordered the fish and chips.

Onion Rings
Fish and Chips

Meatloaf with Macaroni and Cheese

To start off, @RestaurantsATL was 100% right! The onion rings were fabulous. That saying everything is bigger in Texas should be "Everything is bigger in Deckard's". The onion rings were huge and thick! These put every onion ring I have ever had to shame. Seriously these were so big I had to cut it with a knife to eat it. I mean have you ever had to use silverware when eating onion rings? At Deckard's you might have to. The "Everything is bigger in Deckard's" saying continued when we got our meals. The portions were huge and if you aren't crazy hungry then I encourage you to split a meal. The meatloaf was rich and full of flavor. The meat was moist, juicy, and perfectly flavored itself. The macaroni.... wow.... it might need its own blog posting. I could go on for days describing my new love affair with their macaroni and cheese. Not overly cheesy or greasy, but perfect. My dad loved the fish and chips and their hand cut fries. He said it was some of the best fish and chips he has ever had and that it had an abundance of flavor.

I could go on and on about this place because it was exceptional. This is my kind of place. I should have seen that coming with a name like "Kitchen and Kegs"... only a couple of my top two favorite things in life. There is nothing like discovering a new restaurant where you can have a great beer in an impressive atmosphere with even better food! Screw Texas, everything is definitely bigger in Deckard's - big portions, big taste, I can't wait to go back :)

Midtown Review: Loca Luna

I might be the only person in this town that has lived in Midtown Atlanta and not tried Loca Luna yet. This place definitely has a reputation in Midtown as a "fun place with a great atmosphere" but I have never heard any incredible talk about their food. So I decided I would try it out last night with a group of friends.
Loca Luna is a tapas style restaurant off of Amsterdam Avenue in Midtown. If this place didn't have such a reputation, I don't know how anyone would ever find out about it. It definitely is hidden between the neighborhoods of Midtown and Piedmont Park itself. All the talk about Loca Luna that preceeded my visit was right; Loca Luna definitely has a great atmosphere. Live music, bright colors on the walls, lights hanging around the restaurant, "tiki hut" style sitting areas for larger groups, and a killer patio are a few of the first impressions I got of Loca Luna as I walked in. The atmosphere definitely didn't disappoint.

We sat down in one of these "tiki hut" lookin areas and looked over the menu. Our waiter recommended the mojitos to drink so we got one. Let's just say I wasn't that impressed, especially since that is the one drink our waiter said was the best at the whole restaurant. Nothing was authentic about it and it didn't stand out from any other mojito I've ever had. Some of the tapas options included Pao De Queijo brazilian cheese rolls with sundried tomato pesto, Moqueca shrimp, scallops, mussels, cabbage in a brazilian tomato coconut sauce, Costillas Espanolas grilled ribs with balsamic reduction and fresh herbs, a couple paella and ceviche options and many, many more. Since we had a larger group, we all decided to get a bunch of different tapas and all share. To start off with we ordered the Tomate y Mozzarella with vine ripe tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, balsamic vin, and the Black Bean Hummus, tortilla chips, carrots, cucumber. (Note: If you order the hummus ask for extra flat bread cause they barely give you any.) Both of these cold tapas were good and made us all begin to scour over the menu to figure out what to order next!

Tomato and Mozzerella
Next we decided to all order the Nachos with tortilla chips, roasted poblano - cheese sauce, pico de gallo, Barilla de Pollo - grilled chicken skewers, crispy plantains, Cuban mojo, Filet Mignon tapas and then a variety of their tacos which included chile chicken confit with charred corn salsa, beef brisket with pico de gallo and queso fresco and grilled grouper with cabbage slaw and jalapeno aioli. I'm going to warn you that my review of this food is about to get really boring. I would rather just write that all the tapas were "good" (note my overuse of good in this posting) instead of going into individual detail about each tapas. Normally, I would describe each tapas I tried and what I liked about it but I feel the food at Loca Luna did just enough to get by. I find myself struggling to find enough words to describe these tapas cause they were just good. I didn't leave Loca Luna hating the food but then I didn't leave Loca Luna caring to really ever come back to eat. So instead of boring you with a bunch of sentences about the food that leaves the same "good" conclusion, I will just tell you that Loca Luna definitely has an incredible amount of options for tapas but I didn't find anything that was great.

Grilled Chicken Skewers

Variety of Tacos
Filet Mignon

I guess I will close this "exciting" review (seriously I am sure you are yawning by now), by saying that the service was not good at all. I hate when you go to a restaurant with a large party and they put down one long bill at the end of the meal for everyone. Can you not just split it up? So anyways, giving our waiter the benefit of the doubt, I nicely wrote down next to every item on the menu who each item belonged to so that he could split up the bill. He still wouldn't split it up. Seriously? A little customer service goes a long way especially when I pretty much already did your job and split it up for you. And the attitude from the waiter didn't help at all either. So overall I would say Loca Luna = great atmosphere, ok drinks, good food, and bad service.  I guess all the hype about Loca Luna and the atmosphere was right because there definitely is no way this place could be hyped for anything else.
