Jackson Hole Brings the Dining to the Table

Jackson Hole Brings the Dining to the Table

Jun 30, 2016

When starting this feature, I was writing a travel piece on everything that Jackson Hole has to offer. What I found was a culinary experience worth its own showcase. The restaurants in this list are only a sampling of the various dining that Jackson Hole brings to the table. Stop into Street Food at the Stagecoach for great eats on the way to the Village or coming off the pass. Husband and wife team Marcos Hernandez and Amelia Hatchard met while working at the Four Seasons before venturing out on their own with this global cantina. While the regular burger is grilled to perfection, the lamb burger should definitely be tried as all of the ingredients really complement each other. The overall menu has a lot of varied options, but be sure and check out the daily specials on the board for things like the highly popular Chipotle Cream Shrimp Quesadillas as well. While the unassuming dining room is off the bar in the Stagecoach, there is an enjoyable outside dining area with plenty of room to relax while the kids run around. **In the Know: The Habanero Hot Sauce is made and bottled in the restaurant ready to sell. If you’re looking for down-home cooking, take a step into Café Genevieve. While the Southern-inspired cuisine wins acolades all by itself, it’s also a charming place as the restaurant is housed in a historic log cabin listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Focusing its food and cocktails by the season, this cafe is open daily and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you’re lucky when you come in for brunch, you might see the Crabcake Benedict on the menu but if not, Fried Chicken and Waffles are always a perfect go to item. If you are passionate about the origin of your food, know that Cafe Genevieve sources it products from local ranchers and farmers to ensure sustainable ingredients. In the summer enjoy Cafe Genevieve’s bustling, sunny patio with excellent people watching and dogs welcome.**In the Know: Pig Candy, a thick applewood smoked bacon, coated with a blend of sugars and spices and baked low-and-slow, is available for sale on the website. Using fresh seasonal ingredients, E.leaven Food Company offers appealing meals made from scratch. In addition to serving breakfast all day...

Improv Comedy Club & Dinner Theatre Set to Re-Open in Buckhead

Improv Comedy Club & Dinner Theatre Set to Re-Open in Buckhead

Jun 29, 2016

The Improv Comedy Club & Dinner Theatre will be relocated in the winter by the former owner to inside Tower Walk shopping center at 3365 Piedmont Road N.E. The centrally located space with plenty of parking will have a brand new kitchen providing dinner and desserts as well as an increased seating capacity of 350. Additionally, all new systems will be installed from HVAC to state of the art sound and lights making customers feel more comfortable to enjoy their experience. “Before closing due to a building buy out, the initial Improv in Atlanta had turned into a regional entertainment draw with guest traveling from nearby states for our comedy shows,” said owner Stephen de Haan. “With the close proximity to hotels and shopping, we felt that Tower Walk was a perfect spot in the middle of Buckhead to continue to appeal to both local and out-of-town guests.” Founded by Budd Friedman in New York in 1963, The Improv Comedy Club & Dinner Theatre has remained the premiere stage for live comedy. Started in Atlanta in 2012, the Improv has always brought the biggest and best comedians to town while supporting and growing local comedy. Some of the past headliners have included Chris D’Elia, George Wallace, Kevin Nealon, Marlon Wayans, Jo Koy, Norm Macdonald and TJ Miller, to name a few. As with the previous establishment, the new location will feature national touring comics with at least five shows each week. Open Mic will be again held on Wednesdays with comedy shows every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings with special one night appearances monthly. More information can be found...

EcoPax Introduces Easier, Less Expensive and Greener Way to Move

EcoPax Introduces Easier, Less Expensive and Greener Way to Move

Jun 27, 2016

Ecopax was recently formed in an effort to preserve one of Earth’s most valuable natural resources by helping to eliminate cardboard waste and effectively change how Americans move. Designed to maximize storage and greatly minimize packing time, EcoPax simplifies the moving experience by conveniently delivering sustainable crushproof and waterproof green boxes made from 100% recycled durable plastic materials that stack and roll on a custom dolly. Saving up to 40% in the total cost of a move, EcoPax has discovered a much smarter, easier, and greener way to transition to a new home or office. “With the ever increasing presence of the cardboard box, something needed to be done to curb its use in our daily lives,” said EcoPax founder Courtney Friedman. “We have way too many cardboard boxes that unfortunately end up in landfills in many cases. EcoPax creates a better moving solution by removing some of the major stresses and eliminating the wasteful use of cardboard.” Friedman, an outdoor enthusiast and owner of Low Country Laundry & Dry Cleaners, was searching for a sustainable approach to a cardboard box waste issue that he was noticing in his laundry and dry cleaning business. The EcoPax process makes moving easier and more efficient by using large recycled plastic boxes with folding lids that lock shut and better protect the items inside. Servicing all of Charleston County and parts of Dorchester and Berkeley counties with free delivery and pick up, EcoPax provides pricing packages based on the size of the home or office.  Additionally, EcoPax will be donating a percentage of sales to Charleston County Parks and Recreation, South Carolina State Parks and the National Park Service. EcoPax’s goal is to help customers save money by offering a dramatically easier way to pack and move while simultaneously cutting down on the 6 million tons of cardboard waste that ends up in landfills each year.

Apr 8, 2016

From the founder of Andrews Entertainment District that included Prohibition, Improv Comedy Club and East Andrews comes Red Phone Booth opening in June and Amalfi Pizza opening in August in the over 12,000 square foot iconic Dailey’s location located at 17 Andrew Young International Boulevard NE. As the 100 year old building had been closed for many years, a complete renovation is taking place and a new look will greet customers. In the ground floor space, cigar lounge Red Phone Booth will be housed in 4,000 square feet. On the second floor, Amalfi Pizza, a traditional Neapolitan trattoria, will occupy the remainder of the building. “With the booming businesses and tourism in the area, we are excited to bring our inventive concepts to downtown Atlanta,” said CEO Stephen de Haan. According to Central Atlanta Progress, “Downtown has witnessed remarkable growth and investment over the past five years.” The first of a multi-location franchise rollout, Red Phone Booth is a prohibition experience featuring an extensive classic craft cocktail and cigar program led by spirit specialist and certified tobacconist Tom McGuire. Patrons will notice the finest attention to detail that provides for exceptional cocktails including 100% fresh squeezed juices such as blood orange, mango, and cranberry, hand chipped double-reverse osmosis ice, garnishes cut to order, a collection of some of the rarest liquors available and over a dozen tinctures, bitters and flavoring agents to help breath new depth. Small plates including fresh seafood, carpaccio, Neapolitan pizza and house made desserts including a rotating selection of signature desserts courtesy of former Dailey’s owner and current President of the Georgia Restaurant Association, Karen Bremer. Showcasing the 1920s speakeasy theme, the venue will feature restored original brick floors, have a honey onyx bar, intimate fireplace, custom Italian leather couches, and hand-painted ceiling with back lighting. A private “mob-style” kitchen complete with poker and pool tables will be available to rent for private events.

Moe’s Original Bar B Que Continually Proves to be a Successful Model

Moe’s Original Bar B Que Continually Proves to be a Successful Model

Mar 24, 2016

Moe’s Original Bar B Que is and always will be an evolving concept. As it continues to grow at an aggressive, yet manageable pace, continuity and consistency are key to the continued success. The foundation of the company is the food. Consistently providing top notch cuisine has ultimately been an accomplishment for this brand. From the roadside shack to the 10,000 square foot BBQ, bowling and music venue, the company likes to go with the flow. While not offering a cookie cutter atmosphere, each restaurant has the feel of Moe’s Original, but the character and personality of its local owner and community. Moe’s Original Bar B Que’s team is a family filled with like-minded individuals with common interests and goals driven to succeed through hard work in a team mandated environment. “We will continue to master the logistics of consistent BBQ and Southern fare, but our concept goes well beyond the food. We strive to make a comfortable environment for every customer who walks through our doors,” said founding partner Jeff Kennedy. “We have created a culture that brings people together for great food and good times. While our philosophy begins with the owners, it is shared by the employees and spreads contagiously throughout each and every restaurant.” Moe’s Original Bar B Que was founded in 2001 by Ben Gilbert, Mike Fernandez and Jeff Kennedy. After meeting at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, they instantly became friends and had a mutual interest in all things Southern: BBQ, blues, college football, and whisky. In 1988, Mike hooked up with Moses Day in Tuscaloosa and began learning to fire roast meats. The boys were lucky to learn from Moses and his distinct style makes up Moe’s original flavor of BBQ. Loving the mountains, these entrepreneurs eventually all landed in Vail and refined the cooking skills they had learned over the years. By using fruit wood to smoke the meats fresh daily and accompanying it with two sauces, they knew they had something special. Unlike other BBQ joints, Moe’s Original BBQ doesn’t stop there as Southern style side dishes and desserts are prepared daily from recipes passed down for generations. Recognized with many awards, Moe’s Original Bar B Que...
