After journeying to
for my spouse’s attendance at an SCBWI writer’s conference, we had lunch at an intriguing French restaurant near our hotel. Atlanta Georgia

Guy Luck, a chef from
Strasbourg , opened Violette Restaurant, named for his ex-girlfriend, in its present location in 1995, and its popularity has been ongoing. There is live guitar and piano music several nights per week France
They serve quiche lorraine, boeuf bourgignon, country-style pate, fresh soup and salads (including beet salad), vegetarian pastas and hearty beef, pork, fish and fowl dishes.
Kathy and I were excited about the lunch items. We hadn’t had French cuisine in awhile, except at home. I wanted the lamb sausage, accompanied by couscous, a vegetable mélange and harissa (merguez a’l’harissa). Kathy was torn between the Bouchee a la Reine (Puff pastry filled with chicken, topped with a creamy mushroom sauce) and the Poulet Grand Marnier (a roasted chicken breast in an enticing orange-citrus sauce) finally deciding on the latter.
We both had a bowl of lentil soup before the entrée. It was delicious with a robust flavour. We finished the meal sharing a crepe
, which is an excellent dessert crepe filled with chocolate mousse and vanilla ice cream. Milton
We were both very satisfied with the French cuisine served at Violette Restaurant.
If you are ever in northeast
, you will enjoy dining at Violette Restaurant for the ambience, the service and of course the great food. Atlanta, Georgia

I intended to supply photographs to accompany this but regretfully only have a few. We tore into the soup and the entrees before thinking of taking a picture so therefore only the dessert was photographed before devouring.
