Keving Gillespie, You Light My Fire


And oh baby, Kevin Gillespie (the head chef), who won third place on Bravo's Top Chef, lit my fire at Woodfire Grill

Excuse my photos. I really need to get my camera situated so you can actually see the amazing food that I have been eating.

Before our meals, we were surprised with a spoonful of something that for the life of me I cannot remember. All I remember was that it was light and it tasted like a bouquet of flowers. Very fragrant!

For my starter, I definitely wanted to try the Black Truffle Mushroom Risotto. I mean black truffle, mushrooms and risotto, how can you go wrong?

Gillespie is known for his slow-cooked pork, but I wanted to try his Sturgeon. And of course it was just out of this world. Not a single flake of sturgeon left on my plate.

I topped the whole meal off with no, not a dessert, but a couple of glasses of bodegas borsao garnacha campo de borja tres picos. Now that's some great Spanish wine!

On a sidenote, but I am so proud of the culinary talent in Atlanta. We've had several of our awesome chefs on Bravo's Top Chef: Richard Blais, previously from One Midtown Kitchen and now Flip Burger; Hector Santiago, head chef at Pura Vida; Eli Kirshtein, from Eno

I know I'm missing several other chefs, so sorry chefs, but I suggest you check these places out!

J. Wo, I wish I had my camera too! these pictures don't do any justice to the food, but then again what picture will!
