My colleague Mary Jean Harrold took me to one of her favorite places, the Peasant Bistro. It's across the street from Centennial Olympic Park and near the Georgia Aquarium. It's a moderately casual upscale restaurant. The decor is very tasteful but not overly fancy; think of it as well-heeled peasant.
The day of our lunch had been declared Worldwide Salmon Day, so we both had various forms of salad. Mary Jean had a salad with salmon, which she said was her favorite. I had the hot salmon. There was just enough crust to make it interesting but not too much; the sauce was rich and subtle. We didn't try dessert, unfortunately. Perhaps next time.
