Have you ever been sitting around on a Saturday night, trying to decide where to go for dinner, knowing that you can't get a table anywhere because everyone else had the same idea? You can go ahead and thank me now, because I have the solution. Go to General Muir! And not just Saturday night, you can go Friday night, or any night, because, for some reason, almost no one in Atlanta has discovered the fabulousness that is their dinner menu.

I have always loved Todd's salads, from my all-time favorite with roasted carrots, avocado, citrus, arugula and cumin vinaigrette, to this new kale creation, it's always perfectly balanced and you leave feeling smug at having eaten something so healthy and yet so delicious.
This is another of my favorite dishes, but tweaked slightly to make it even more divine, I love how the grated lime zest somehow transforms the flavor of the strawberries into something more fruity, they are such a perfect compliment to the avocado, a combination I never would have dreamed of.
I think another reason that people don't think of General Muir for dinner is that they want to have a drink with dinner and cocktails and delis are two things that usually don't go together. This is where you have to again look past your ideas of what a deli are and see that this is something much better. The Sea Legs was a rum and milk drink that tasted quite like eggnog without all that slimy egginess.
