Chilebrown at home

Marcus Samuelsson is a Ethiopian born Swedish-American celebrtiy chef. He owns Marcus Bar & Grill in Atlanta Georgia and I paid them a visit. Parking Karma was present because I parked right out in front. It was early and I understand it can get crowded. The do have valet parking available. I walked in and was seated immediately. The first thing you notice is an entire wall covered with roller skates. This looks like a fun place.

The open kitchen showcases a live fire grill. This sealed the deal for me to order a N.Y. strip steak. I accompained that with some cornbread, asparagus and mac & cheese. I was on vacation and diet was not on my menu. (it never is)

The steak was served with two sauces and also covered with melted butter. The steak was decent but did not impress. The mac & cheese was very filling, cheesy and just what you expect. The asparagus was limp & stringy. This California boy is very spoiled and particular about asparagus. The dessert of peach cobbler was ordered. It was warm and comforting.

I got the bill and it was on par with California prices. I would like to mention that Atlanta is a cashless society. You were required to pay by credit card in almost all aspects of transactions. I enjoyed my dinner at Marcus Bar & Grill. I was not wowed or overly impressed. I am glad to have experienced my visit. I have more food adventures to discover in Atlanta.

Your experience is why I rarely eat out as I hate to pay high prices for mediocre food.

Big Dude, I know you have commented before on high prices and I agree with you to a certain extent. You never go into a dinning experience expecting mediocre food. I do want to experience new food venues and sometimes the price tag is high. Next week I plan to talk about Mary Mac's Tea Room. I guarantee you and I will both love the prices and food. Stay tuned.
