Omnivore - Pass the chocolate chicken wings and shake your groove thing
It's not every day you get to eat with women line dancing around your table. But that's the situation we found ourselves in when we ate at CafÃ© Circa (464 Edgewood Ave., 404-477-0008) Sunday night. The new restaurant was hosting an event for Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority. After a champagne toast, the ladies broke into dance.
We had a good meal, including this jerk chicken with a pineapple-mango salsa, served over yellow rice with a bowl of black beans.
Also notable was a plate of chocolate chicken wings. That's right, chicken wings fried Buffalo-style and rolled in dark chocolate syrup. They were messy as hell but surprisingly yummy.
This is a great addition to the Sweet Auburn area, near Edgewood's corner with Boulevard. It's a beautiful space with a 30-foot marble bar backed by golden-lit glass.
