Cincinnati this weekend...

 We're visiting Cincinnati this weekend and looking forward to making stops at both of these stylish restaurants.  First up, Abigail Street.  Look at that beautiful facade. 
 Inside it's just as handsome.
I love the grey leather banquette seating.

 Next, it's Senate. 
 Stylish?  Yes.  But take a look at their menu!  Yum!

Dining in Atlanta...

 I will be visiting Atlanta in July.  When traveling, I always look for interesting spots for dinner.  With an interior like this, how could the New Victorian Ruralist pass up No. 246 in Decatur?
 No. 246 boasts not only a gorgeous interior...
 ...but gorgeous food as well.
 The restaurant is sleek and rustic...
 ...with simple details that create a beautiful dining experience.

 Eating Appalachia recently featured Bocado on Howell Mill Road.
 Who could resist their Deviled Eggs?  I've heard they make a mean burger too.
 Next -- One Eared Stag.  They had me with that name alone! 
 Here, a communal table is punctuated with huge platters of apples and heirloom tomatoes.
 And what about the food?  Well, I think this photograph from Antoinette Bruno speaks for itself.  Confit range chicken wings with oak barrel-aged hot sauce and Johnson Buttermilk are displayed on a wooden plank.  Just lovely!
 Parish Foods & Goods is both a restaurant...
 ...and a market.
 It is also filled with NVR touches -- so of course I need to visit.
 Their website is fantastic too!
 There's always room for some great Italian food, and STG Trattoria sounds like it could certainly be helpful in that department.
 Will it be the linguini with braised chicken, pork sausage, and scallions -- or the baked strozzapreti with a pork & ham bolognese and fresh mozzarella?
 One spot that is a definite is Richard Blais' The Spence.  In fact, I've already made a reservation!
 This beautiful plate contains veal cheeks with sweet candied horseradish.  I bet it tastes as lovely as it looks.
Last, but not least -- Holeman & Finch.  See pic above.  Enough said.
