Hyesoon and I visited Kyma for dinner. It's a very well established part of the Atlanta restaurant scene and for very good reason. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is casual elegance. We ordered the tasting menu to maximize the variety of things we could taste. It starts out with a variety of spreads. I expected the eggplant to be my favorite. Although it was good, I loved the roasted red papers and the yogurt/cucumber/dill spread was wonderfully refreshing. We then went onto a selection of appetizers. I particularly loved the spinach and feta pies.

Our Texas Instruments were in town and graciously took a group of us to Nan. I usually go to this restaurant for lunch so dinner was a special treat. I just wanted to write a quick blog note to say how much I enjoy this restaurant (not to mention the company). We started with the tasting tree which gave us a variety of dishes ranging from Thai-style spring rolls to fried octopus rings. The accompanying sauces also gave us the full spectrum of flavors. I'm a sucker for cocoanut soup. For my main course I tried the duck for the first time; that is one of those things that is hard to find anywhere. Nan's duck was succulent and gave very subtle, non-gamy flavors.
