Omnivore - Dance for a discount

A visit to Dynamic Dish, where to dance for dessert

I had the week's best meal last night at Dynamic Dish. It's been a couple of months since we've eaten there. Every time we've gone by, the restaurant has been booked full. Unless it's a meal for review, I don't do reservations.

I ordered baby eggplants stuffed with pureed artichokes, topped with a bit of cheese. On the side was steamed kale in EVOO and some wedges of roasted Gold Yukons. Wayne got a zucchini quiche that was a bit too oniony but otherwise perfect. It was served with some mixed greens.

For our starter, we split a caesar salad. The romaine lettuce was topped with sliced avocados sprinkled with black sesame seeds. Crunchy "nutritional yeast croutons" garnished the salad, whose dressing was made from a vegan mayo spiked with a hot chili powder. Delicious.

The restaurant has five matching community tables now and looks better than ever...

We hit Spoon in East Atlanta again Tuesday night. I'm addicted, but I have to admit the nearby presence of Morelli's Ice Cream reinforces my compulsion. You get a 20-percent discount after 6 p.m. Tuesdays, if you dance for nine seconds. I wish I'd had my camera to record what people will do for a 20-percent discount. I remained in control of myself but Wayne danced at least 27 seconds, expecting a 60-percent reduction....

Grant Central has perfected its puttanesca sauce, available as an occasional special. Yay!
