Outside of my hotel is a McDonald’s, a Hooters, and a Hard Rock Cafe. Not exactly the pinnacle of haute cuisine.
Tonight is my last night in Atlanta, and so I was determined to find a decent bite to eat. After circling a few blocks in different directions I only found a Steak and Ale, a chinese restaurant who’s sign was on the floor, some out of business retail spaces, and a number of people hitting me up for cash. Finally I turned the corner, walked past a seedy looking bar, and came upon a swank looking place with a decent looking menu. I decided to go inside and check out Azio’s.
I took a seat at the bar, and got to know KJ, the very friendly bartender. I started with the “insalada tricolore”, which was a mixed wild green, endive, gorgonzola and walnut salad with a slice of bruschetta. Yum.
I followed the salad with a very thin crust florentine pizza (spinach, mushroom, and Italian sausage). They bake their pizzas in a brick oven, which make the crust good and crispy. Overall a very tasty meal in a friendly environment. Thank you Azio!
