Folks, I’ve discovered best restaurant in Georgia!
I kid y’all not, I’ve found a place that’s worth investing a weekend in order to eat a few meals there. A place that combines formal and casual dining in best ways imaginable. A place where food is so good that each bite is a veritable Elvis concert of palate. So, are y’all a little curious as to where this place is located?
Good! It’s in Dahlonega, Georgia.
Wanna know its name?
It’s called Corkscrew Cafe.
I kid y’all not, Corkscrew Cafe. I discovered it just this past February when I spent a delightful weekend up in Dahlonega as an attendee/participant in their second annual literary festival. I was up there with Dedra and Deborah doing our first ever performance of “GRITS, Georgia, and Grizzard,” and we all decided on spur of moment to have dinner there on a Saturday night. Folks, it was one of best decisions we’ve ever made. When I walked in and looked over place, I sensed it was a winner. And what occurred over next hour-and-a-half confirmed it, it was sheer, pure, unadulterated dining pleasure. It was so good that I came back for lunch when doors opened on Sunday, and Sunday’s food was even better than Saturday’s. Let me give y’all a brief description of what all I tried:
French Onion and Portabella Mushroom Soup - If you like French Onion soup, you’ll never do any better than this. Great cheese and toast floatin’ up on top, and a very well-seasoned soup underneath. The mushrooms make it even better, I damn near cancelled what I ordered for dinner just to eat another bowl of this liquid heaven. I’m glad I didn’t though, because my entree was outstanding. It was:
Sesame Crusted Salmon - Simply put, this is best grilled salmon I’ve ever had. Whatever they used to season it with was great, and I even loved rice that went along with it. The rice! Let me tell y’all, any restaurant that makes rice that you want second helpings of is a place to remember. The Corkscrew Cafe makes best rice in history of modern civilization.
