Have you ever been to a Brazilian steakhouse or a Chinese dim sum? Imagine both but with refined Southern food and if you haven't gone to either.....you're in for a treat. This was a very unique dining experience. I was NOT expecting cafeteria style seating with my date sitting on the opposite side of me and other patrons so close to me but I LOVED IT. I was so curious to see what others ordered and ask if we should order it as well. Gunshow serves amazing small dishes and the actually chef comes out and presents each course to you. The drinks are made table side. I did feel bad declining some dishes since it looks so yummy but after dish number 5 - I was stuffed. This by far is one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta due to its creativity, amazing food, and ambiance. The menu is constantly changing with revolving chefs. I wouldn't recommend it for a first date, since it's quite loud and busy, but definitely worth it with friends, family, or if you're in a relationship. We parked on the street. :)
Saturday, September 26,2k9 I planned a surprise bday party for my boyfriend's 30th...however it was last minute and I didn't have reservations. I showed up at Dugans @ 9 and it was already standing room only. OMG!!! So I panic, not only is he on the way but the guest are starting to arrive as well...The manager seemed to hear my prayers because he came over and offered me a pick up table. It would seat 10. Perfect right? Not yet. He told me that I would have to share the table with other patrons. I told him about my situation and he told me I could have the whole table!!!! And when I realized more people had showed up, no problem, he offered us 2 more tables. Our server was Bobby "Blu" and he was polite, efficient, and very understanding under pressure. The deejay played all the right songs and we didn't leave the dance floor until we left the Bar. I would highly recommend this bar. Good spirits+good music=a dam good time. Needless to say,everything flowed as planned..THANKS DUGANS!!!
I visited The Pecan this past weekend for a renewal of wedding vows event. I hadn't heard of this restaurant prior but I was in for a real treat! The decor was extremely nice, the staff was very professional, and the food was the absolute BEST! I ordered the blackened shrimp with angel hair pasta and a glass of Reisling wine. Although the food may be a little pricey for some in these economic times, if you have it spend, it's worth every penny! I haven't stopped thinking or talking about this restaurant since. I plan to take my family this weekend for my father's birthday and I'm considering incorporating them in my wedding plans either by catering or hosting my reception here! What are you waiting for??? You have to try this restaurant out!!
