A couple weeks ago I was in ATL and found my new favorite restaurant: Two Urban Licks! I know, I know I don't live anywhere near ATL, but when I visit again, this will be my first stop. So if you live in the area, definitely check it out. Two's menu consist of fiery American food cooked in an open kitchen in the middle of the restaurant. I loved their tuna tartare with mango, avocado, sriracha aioli on wonton chips and their beef rib served with a side a creamy mac and cheese. I didn't have room for dessert, but you can't go wrong with their cupcakes and ice cream. They also have wine on tap! A 26 foot wine wall holds 42 stainless steel barrels of wine with a gravity flowed system for pouring. This is a one of a kind unit made specifically for the restaurant and is a must for any wine lover. In the rear of the restaurant are large retractable patio doors that open and reveal a beautiful view of the downtown Atlanta skyline. Two also has live jazz performances Tuesday thru Saturday. It can't get any better than that!
