“Amélie’s was born in 2007 from a collaboration of three certifiable foodies who love what the French brought to the world of French cooking. While we’re known for our salted caramel brownies and array of French macaron flavors, we also take pride in our soups like our Spinach Asparagus Leek soup, available year-round; sandwiches like our Croque Monsieur; seasonal salads; and our coffee, tea and specialty beverage offerings.”

“Extra hungry for wings on a WEDNESDAY night? Check out *Wingnut's Wednesdays", one of my favorite GaTech traditions. They may have moved from their original popping location right on North Ave below the now GaTech (formerly GSU & 1996 Summer Olympic Games) dorms - to a more quiet area on the on Marietta St. (in "West Midtown") - but the wings haven't changed. It's still right next to campus, but not overcrowded on game days. However, I think Atlanta Falcons & Atlanta United Fans should definitely check out Wingnut with or after a game (or match). The staff is always friendly. If you see the owner, Susan, tell her that Allison from GaTech sent you and ask for the Garlic Parmesan Ranch! :)”
