Cafe Intermezzo is in Terminal B at Hartsfield-Jackson. It took me quite some time for me to connect this place with the wonderful desserts I've had at Cafe Intermezzo in town. The airport location has a bookstore as well as a sit-down restaurant and a takeout service. The restaurant service is always gracious. A good meal in a relaxing environment is a welcome relief to the stress of modern airline travel. I was in a burger mood and this one hit the spot. I am not a huge American cheese fan but overall the burger was very good. The corn chowder that came with it was very good. For dessert I tried this wonderful Italian tart. The fruit at the top was very tart and sweet. It lies over a layer of custard with cake at the bottom.
Trev, Jan, and Karem took me to a wonderful evening at West End Grill located, appropriately enough, in the West End. The restaurant still has its old tin ceiling festooned with stained glass chandeliers. I was too hungry to take a picture of our appetizers: crab cakes and bleu cheese tarts. The crab cakes had just a bit of heat to them, something you don't always find in a crab cake but which worked very well. The bleu cheese tarts lived up to their intriguing premise, rich and tangy. This is my caprese salad. The mozzarella, tomato, and basil were all outstanding. The balsamic vinegar had been very well aged, giving it a thick consistency. My main course was tuna, perfectly prepared to a medium well. The tuna left just enough room for a chocolate lava cake paired with decaf coffee. The cake was rich and moist. I kept scraping my plate to be sure I retrieved all of the chocolate.
