Anyways, as I was stuck in airport limbo hell today, I saw a short review of it in Jezebel magazine. I have no idea why we get Jezebel magazine (neither one of us can recall subscribing) , but it arrives duly in my mailbox each month, so I must read it.
The review is thus:
Meet Me in the Alley
JEZ dines at Little Alley Tapas Bar & Restaurant
Little Alley Tapas Bar & Restaurant is a popular neighborhood eatery with Roswell residents, but is well worth the drive for those living in other parts of Atlanta. From selections of Thai-braised beef short ribs to seared sea scallops with parsnip puree and truffle-scented broth, the restaurant’s diverse and detail-driven menu is full of big surprises.
Located in a generic-looking business center on Holcomb Bridge Road, Little Alley’s mood changes dramatically thanks to a welcoming interior that transports guests to a lively bodega where wine flows and laughter lilts from the dining room. For pre-dinner lounging with cocktails, conversation and tapas, the comfortable bar area with black leather couches provides a great vantage point from which to watch Chef Richard Wilts turn out beautifully presented plates. Interesting entrées such as grilled salmon with chive potato puree, spinach and lemon caper butter, or grilled dry-aged New York strip complemented with mushroom potato pie and green peppercorn sauce will further summon your appetite. Even the salads have a “wow” factor, such as the roasted pear salad with organic greens, port wine vinaigrette, candied pecans and bleu cheese. A dessert of dark chocolate bread pudding with mandarin orange sauce seals the deal.

I have been inspired food wise by my recent Caribbean trip. More on that later.
