And show some grill, indeed! The Yelp Atlanta Elite Squad headed to Woodfire Grill for much fun involving blackberries and gold teeth (We’ll explain)!
The Woodfire Grill, a spot heralded for their au natural organic and locally sourced cuisine, is recently under new ownership by our gracious hosts for the evening, Nick and Bernard. They started things off with a Blackberry Bramble, the cocktail hit of the night. And with fresh muddled blackberries, we were all asking for the recipe! Also at the bar, tasty libations from winery Lapostolle, with a smooth Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot to pair. The hor’dourves got resounding ‘oohs’ and ‘aaahs,’ with tastes like the corn meal fried sweet pepper stuffed with cheese grits, sweet potato gnocchi, and foie gras mousse on petite pecan toasts. And the hit of the night was the spoonfuls of Vietnamese steak.
Things got interesting in the Atlanta Photography hosted "Show Us Your Grill" photo booth. The theme? The Seven Deadly Sins, as Max S & Frank L
snapped away photos for inclusion in their upcoming gallery show. Scenes filled with gold teeth, backstabbing, lust, and greed, oh my! If you want to see the final piece (and quite the piece of art do yelpers make!), check out The Granite Room from October 4 – 31, 2008, to see some Elite Hotness. And the rest of the pictures are housed here!
Though, yes, we (as in our entire city!) were out of gas (yes, literally.), the Elite Squad showed up in droves to party the night away. Alexa G and Erin W both looked adorable in their matching dresses (see photo!), Wallace S strolled in too! Molly S mingled the night away, and we sadly had to say goodbye to moving up North Jill G. Kyle S & Ashley D looked stylish as always, and we also had a raffle, with special thanks to Joel C!
