Last week, I was invited to a press tasting at Couscous Atlanta, a new restaurant in Midtown. Oh-em-gee, it was soooooo good! If you love Mediterranean food, I promise you’ll love this spot. Think modern Mediterranean and Tunisian fusion cuisine prepared with organic ingredients, fresh spices, and vibrant flavors. YUM! Here I am with the owner and Jan Hickel, one of the other guests (it was so great meeting her…so sweet!)
So, I have a thing for mussels, and everyone knows mussels are all about the broth! The Mussels La Goulette at Couscous are accompanied by an insanely delicious white wine, garlic, tomato harissa, capers & cream sauce. O.M.G. Once I’d finished the mussels, I sopped up as much of the broth as I could with my bread, then I had to fight the urge to pick up the bowl and slurp it up. Lol! It was SO GOOD!
My other favorite dish of the night was the Grilled Atlantic Salmon. I am such a huge salmon fan, and this salmon was cooked to perfection!
Oh, and did I mention signature cocktails? I don’t remember the name of this drink, but there was some gin, and some simple syrup, and some fresh rosemary, and a whole lot of goodness! I was driving, so I only had one but mmmm, it was good!
Needless to say, I had a great time at Couscous, and will definitely be going back. I think Fab is really gonna love it! He loves Mediterranean food. When we were dating he used to take me to his favorite spot in Jacksonville, but we haven’t found a place that we love in Atlanta…maybe this will be our place!
