We are just now getting back into the swing of things & have slowly been responding to emails (sorry for our delay peeps). Thanks so much for all of you that often reach out to a belle. The sis & I truly appreciate it! 🙂 With that being said, a recent email from sweet Tammie S. in Flordia asked: “what local food do you two really love now that you’re in HotLanta?” Well Tammie, honey let me tell ya.
Shermika nor myself hesitated when Paschal’s Restaurant came to mind. Recently we ate at the restaurant for the first time after trying their food here last year. The service was stellar as was the food, presentation, & prices. Let a belle elaborate… ‘kay?
They are located in downtown Atlanta in the Castleberry Hill community. There’s plenty of free parking which is always on point in our book. Plenty of places here charge for parking or have valet which isn’t too shabby.
For starters (no pun intended) we had the Fried Green Tomatoes with Voodoo Ranch (gotta love that name) & their Crispy Fried Catfish Fingers with tarter sauce. Both apps were divine. They weren’t overly seasoned & had that sweet golden color we desire from fried foods. If you have never tried these tomatoes you really should! They are a little tart, but oh sooooo good.
What we also love is that this legendary eatery was frequented by many historic leaders including ATL’s own Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The walls are adorned with many fab black & white photos that gives this restaurant a warm feeling of love. Exposed bricks, booths, seating upstairs, dim lighting–Heck, what isn’t there to love about it?
Two words to describe Paschal’s Restaurant: Fab/Quaint!
Our entrees consisted of juicy chicken & tasty veggies/beans. I had Paschal’s Half Herb Roasted Chicken with perfectly steamed broccoli, black-eyed peas, & corn bread muffins. The sis had Paschal’s Famous 1947 Fried Chicken with mac ‘n cheese & candied yams. Y’all we ate very well & had plenty to take home for the next day to say the least.
We were so full that we didn’t even have dessert. Many of you know the sis lives for dessert & that is the honest truth–LOL!! Next time we go you best believe that we’ll let you know. Have a gander at our meals below & be sure to check out their menu before you head there. We know you are going soon, right?!
Before I forget… Paschal’s has a FAB brunch menu that’s online too. We haven’t tried it yet, but have heard excellent things.
If you’ve eaten here we’d love to hear what you dined on.
Until next time!!!!
Be sure to follow a belle!!
