We decided to spend the night out trying a new Atlanta restaurant, Gio’s Chicken Amalfitano, with friends. So far, the week has been a little hectic. Work is crazy and Eric has been busy with work and school stuff. We finally squeezed in some time to give Sura a much-needed bath now that her paw has healed enough to get wet.
Anyways, back to food. One of the best places in Atlanta to get pizza is Antico’s. Anyone living here knows this place. So, I was very excited to hear that the owner opened another restaurant next door. It’s a simple menu with mostly chicken dishes. Apparently, the story is that the owner knows how to make a few dishes well. One is pizza (Antico’s) and the other is a couple of chicken dishes. These dishes are on the menu at his new restaurant. I ordered the popular Sorrento lemon chicken.
OMG delicious! I was afraid that reading all of the reviews beforehand would set my expectations too high but that was not the case. The food is fantastic. It’s a BYO place so we brought a bottle of wine, ordered amazing food, and had a great dinner with friends! The dish was huge and I was convinced I would not finish it. But the amazing flavors kept me going and I nearly finished the whole thing until I enlisted the help of Eric! 🙂 After seeing the other dishes, I know for sure that I need to come back and try some other menu items. Yum!
