Bonjour! Bienvenue!
The French were America's first ally after the War of independence. But they are more than just political allies. First-generation French immigrants brought us their culture, manners, language and literature. Items like lace, leather, and felt are made possible because the French brought us the crafting skills to manufacture them.
A particular group of French(The Huguenots) brought us farming skills that allowed us to have a wider variety of rice, wine, and bread. They were actually the first ones to make baked bread in America that had yeast as a raising agent. They brought us tomatoes, okra and artichokes. Personally speaking, they could have kept the artichokes!
While cities like New York and Louisiana boast a lot of french architecture, artefacts and french influence, Atlanta boasts a riche selection of French restaurants.
Le Bon Nash is a restaurant and market whose aim is to celebrate the beauty of simplicity. They maintain a sweet and savoury cuisine with fresh, colourful and seasonal foods. You have to go there. You won't regret it. It's beautiful and inviting with tasty food.
Le Bilboquet is a French bistro in the vibrant city of Buckhead. I have dined here, and I must report that my experience was very satisfying. The food was great, and the atmosphere was lovely. The staff is exceptional. They are open for brunch and dinner and also do takeout and delivery.
F&B French Bisto is the place to be if you enjoy French food and live entertainment. The live entertainment is on the weekends. "Founded by Fabrice Vergez. F&B is the third iteration of his beloved Atlanta restaurant “Brasserie le Coze.” F&B Atlanta is Buckhead’s locally owned French destination, opened in July 2012, serving signature French cuisine in a warm atmosphere." They always seem to be packed whenever I walk by while passing through Buckhead Village. So if you are interested in trying this one, make your reservations in advance.
Bistro Niko is a modern French Restaraunt that promise to deliver Paris to Peachtree. They have live Jazz on Sundays and cater to your brunch and dinner needs in proper french style. The chefs must be French because the food is excellent, with authentic French taste and presentation. Another one of those elegant dining experiences.
Tiny Lous ATL is one of my favourites. I have been there several times. It's a French American Brasserie that is a part of Hotel Clairmont. It's a rooftop location that is beautifully decorated. The place speaks French culture and society. I like going there. You can dress fancy and pretend you are French.
Petite Violette (Petite Auberge) has served our city for over 48 years and boasts of being Atlanta's original French restaurant. It premiered as a family-owned and operated French Restaurant in 1974 by Wolfgang Gropp under the name Petite Auberge. They are one of the few locations that host an in-house olive oil boutique with over 30 varieties of fresh olive oil. They also host Atlanta's most original dinner theatre. Check the website link for more details.
Here are a few more French restaurants in and around Atlanta.

The reasons for using Airbnb are the same as those for getting hotels. However, the reasons why people are increasingly choosing to get Airbnbs over hotels is as simple as it gets. We are humans who love privacy, space, convenience, variety, and of course cost-effectiveness.
We are indeed our brothers' and sisters' keepers. Homelessness is one of the most painful things to observe in our society. It happens in every country and every culture; it happens to every race and every gender. It's also impartial to age. Have you ever been startled by a homeless person sleeping on the sidewalk and only noticed that they were there when you got close enough? Have you ever been walking by in the cold of winter and seen someone bundled up, trying to stay warm? Too cold to beg, so they have to lay there wrapped up tightly, trying to conserve their energy and stay warm. For me, it's gut-wrenching.
First and foremost, why am I not on this list? What were the requirements for this list? I need answers!. JEZEBEL | 50 Most Beautiful AtlantansMel B. Elder Jr. There are many perks to being a resident of a Buckhead luxury apartment. One of such is getting your weekly issues from some of Atlanta's most prominent luxury magazines like Simply Buckhead and Jezebel. Upon receiving the October 22 issue of Jezebel, I feverishly flipped through the pages to find the featured item labelled '50 Most Beautiful Atlantans'.
Beauty spas are a must for our self-care regime. Have you ever had a long day in the office, whether it's your business or your 9-5? At the end of a long work week, you feel accomplished but don't have the energy to enjoy and celebrate your hard work or practice self-care routines to restore your body and mind. How you look often determines how you feel and vice versa. When you feel tired, burned out, achy, sore, fatigued, or dehydrated, it will show up on your skin, hair, and mind.
You don't have to break the bank to give your guest a luxury experience while hosting your Airbnb. Also, guest book your Airbnb for the inside, not the outside. Hosting an Airbnb can be so much fun. You get to meet so many personalities. Sometimes I get outlandish requests from my guest; I have to wonder if they are real people. And some of them are so awesome. I have a whiteboard on one of my walls filled with cute notes from my guests. They tell me how gorgeous my home is, say thank you and goodbyes, and share how the home made them feel.
Are you trying to find a way to make money while you sleep? Are you ready to become an entrepreneur? Are you still trying to figure out what avenue to use for that increase in income? Want to be your boss? Well, let me share some info that secured me two income generators.
So you decide to go out for dinner; what are your criteria for choosing a restaurant? Is it the desired taste for a particular cuisine? Is it the location and or the proximity? Is it the $$$, the ambience or the dress code? Or is the choice dependent on the reason for which you are going out to dine? A birthday dinner, perhaps. Maybe you're celebrating your anniversary or a recent promotion. Could it be a date night, especially that first date that usually calls your most elegant outfit and extra glamour?
So you've got your costume. You watched all your favourite scary movies and got yourself all shivery. Now it's time to finish-off spook season with a healthy scream. Whether it's a costume party, a haunted mansion or a spook fest, Atlanta has a chilling selection of events for us to attend. From the trending costume contests to the most gruesome haunting mansions crawling with zombies and mutated trolls.
It's that time of year again, guys and gals. It's time to prepare our costumes, binge-watch our favourite horror movies and get ready to Trick or Treat. Unfortunately, I don't have any kids to take trick or treating to get me a month's supply of candy. So I guess I'll have to settle for an adult party with booze and good music to rave. Please, party responsibly.
