When it comes to the best Atlanta burgers, Shake Shack always makes the list. With their famous sauce, perfectly cooked meat patties- Shake Shack knows how to make a mean burger. Lucky for us the only Shake Shack in the southeast is located at The Shops Buckhed Atlanta!

Shake 1

Shake Shack actually sprouted from a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park in Manhattan to support the Madison Square Park Conservancy’s first art installation. The cart was quite the success, with Shack fans lined up daily for three summers. In 2004, the bid was won to open a permanent kiosk in the Park: Shake Shack was born. This modern day “roadside” burger stand serves up the most delicious burgers, hot dogs, frozen custard, shakes, beer, wine and more. An instant neighborhood fixture, Shake Shack welcomed people from all over the city, country and world who gathered together to enjoy fresh, simple, high-quality versions of the classics in a majestic setting. The rest, as they say, is burger history.

Shake Shack not only creates delicious burgers and hot dogs but they are also famous for their custard. And just for summer, Shake Shack is releasing some extra special dishes and events-

Great American Shake Sale

Now through the end of May, guests who donate $2 or more to No Kid Hungry at Shake Shack will receive a card for a complimentary hand-spun shake, redeemable on their next visit. 100 percent of donations will benefit local chapters of No Kid Hungry.

Blueberry Pie Oh My

Berry season is in full bloom and Shake Shack is taking advantage by blended up a new “Blueberry Pie Oh My” frozen custard made with a slice of delicious Shack-made blueberry pie and topped with whipped cream. From Friday, May 27, to Monday, July 4, enjoy the frozen treat in concrete or shake form – either way, it’s perfect for enjoying al fresco on Shack’s rooftop patio.

Travel Like a Gypsy | Eat Like a King

Uncategorized By June 3, 2016 No Comments

0121

Hi friends! Luisa from Peaches to Pearls here once again to tell you about another The Shops Buckhead Atlanta restaurant. Today the spotlight goes to the phenomenal restaurant Gypsy Kitchen. This delectable restaurant draws inspiration from the culinary riches of Spain – infused with Moroccan traditions from across the Gibraltar and Indian influences that travelled west along the same seas.

Gypsy 1

Gypsy Kitchen also brings you the best of modern day Spanish cuisine, a sophisticated mix of traditional classics artfully interpreted through a contemporary lens, tracing through the eclectic regions of Spain, from the southwest coast of Andalusia to the Basque and Galician regions to the north, and then east to Catalonia.  These creations are the fruits of their labor and are the result of years of joyful research from extensive travels throughout Spain, much like gypsies on a culinary adventure.

Here are a few of my recommendations to make the most out of your visit to Gypsy Kitchen

When you first arrive kick off your evening with one of their signature drinks. Two of their most famous drinks- The Seville Rose {Vodka, Roses & Spice, Egg White, Lemon, Soda {and Leather & Silk {Gin, Chartreuse, Velvet Falernum, Lime} are crisp, fresh and easy to drink!

Gypsy 2

Next, order a few starters to go with your drinks. I highly recommend trying-tortilla espagnole, foie gras escabèche, chickpea pancakes, yellowfin tuna tartare stuffed into piquillo peppers and a charcuterie and cheese board. Although I love everything, their chickpea pancakes are my favorite. They are gluten free and are made fresh every day. Yum!

Gypsy 3

Gypsy 5

After all these amazing tapas move on to the main course. The Georges bank cod is great for all fish lovers. It comes with green onion pil pil, glazed eggplant and black garlic migas. Craving something a little different? Try their most popular dish- the seafood paella “fried rice”-which comes with clams, mussels, shrimp, peas, red pepper-chorizo salazon PLUS a fried egg on top. YUM! Both dishes are great but after one bite you will see why the fried rice is the most popular dish!

Gypsy 6

Gypsy 4

Leave room for dessert and try either their chocolate cake bar or/and their white Spanish cake. The chocolate cake has a little bit of pepper dust added to it, giving each bite a slight kick! Phenomenal!

If the weather permits, I highly recommend you sit out on the porch. Whether you are looking for a delicious restaurant to try with your significant other, or you are looking for a place to drink with your girls- Gypsy Kitchen won’t disappoint.

Men’s Fashion | Billy Reid and Bonobos

Lets face it ladies, shopping for our men isn’t the easiest task in the world. Either you don’t know if something is going to fit, or they already have everything you can afford! Lucky for us The Shops Buckhead Atlanta offer various places to find the perfect gift! With Father’s Day just around the corner, I went ahead and picked out a few of my favorite men’s summer fashion pieces you can pick up before June 19th!

Still struggling to find something? I highly recommend giving Dad a gift card to Bonobos. Bonobos Guideshop is an “e-commerce store,” designed as Bonobos’ answer to the traditional retail experience. Bonobos Guideshop Buckhead Atlanta is a physical 1,150 square-foot space, serving as a highly personal extension of Bonobos’ comprehensive customer service for those who want to see and try on the clothing in-person before placing an order on the popular retail website.

Pretty neat, right? I think this is a great idea not only for gift giving, but also for men who struggle to find the right fitting clothes. My husband has a hard time finding pants that fit right because he is tall and skinny. By going into Bonobos, he will get a tailored look but not pay the expensive tailored price.  So if you’re ever in the Buckhead area- stop by Bonobos to check it out and find a perfect outfit for your main squeeze!

Ladies Lunch at Le Bilboquet

Uncategorized By May 23, 2016 No Comments

0121

Bonjour! Today we are going to France for the day! Just kidding but that’s how you feel when you walk into Le Bilboquet located here at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta. From the minute you walk in you are taken back by the beauty of this French restaurant.

5

Open daily for lunch and dinner, the bistro and bar offers a vibrant atmosphere paired with simple, classic French cooking, bringing a slice of Parisian café culture to the neighborhood and a natural gathering spot to enjoy a chilled bottle of rosé alfresco alongside classic bistro fare or a draft beer and croque monsieur at the bar. I was fortunate enough to try out this exquisite restaurant last week with my best friend Haley. We sat in the main dining area where the big windows allow you to enjoy the beautiful weather. Our lovely waitress recommended we try her favorite cocktail, the Tu Es Belle. Haley and I both ordered one and quickly saw why it was her favorite.

2

After enjoying our drinks and the warm bread, we ordered two of their most popular appetizers- Jumbo Lump Crab with Avocado and Corn + the Tuna Tartar. Both dishes were incredibly fresh and packed with flavors!  My favorite was the crab because it sat on a bed of avocado.

Next we ordered our main entrees, the Classic Croque Madame Sandwich + Signature Cajun Chicken that came with Beurre Blanc and French Fries. The chicken was cooked to perfection- grilled out the outside, while staying moist and tender on the inside. The chicken was sitting on a Beurre Blanc, which was creamy and full of flavor. It was heavenly!

6

Lastly we went with the Apple Tartine and Profiteroles for dessert. Both were excellent but the ice cream that came with apple tartine was absolutely phenomenal! Even if you don’t have a lot of room left for dessert – I strongly recommend at least getting a scoop of their ice cream.

7

I can honestly tell you that Le Bilboquet is the best French restaurant I have tried in Atlanta. I have a slight obsession with French food so I’ve had my fair share of it. Le Bilboquet takes pride in providing you with an authentic experience of French cuisine. I was very happy with my experience and will continue to recommend it to all my friends.

Whether you are looking for a beautiful, delectable place to have lunch with the girls or you are looking for a romantic place to take your love- Le Bilboquet will never disappoint.

Luisa

Summer Skin: L’Occitane

Uncategorized By May 18, 2016 No Comments

0121

Bonjour my friends! Today I want to tell you about my favorite body product brand located here at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta- L’Occitane.

Loccitane 1

If you’re like me, you’ve been a fan of this brand for many years now. This flagship store is one out of three in the USA. Right when you walk in you are taken back by the beauty of this magnificent store. From shower gels, to soft smelling perfumes, L’Occitane will help get your skin ready for summer. One of their best skin products is their shea butter line, which is made in Africa. In the early 1980s, on a trip to Burkina Faso, Oliver Baussan (founder) discovered the wonderful properties of shea butter.

Loccitane 3

L’Occitane has built a strong relationship of co-development and fair trade with local communities for 30 years. By employing local women and paying far above their minimum wage, over 9,700 women have benefited from L’Occitanes involvement with the community.

Giving back to the world is just one of the many reasons L’Occitane is such a prestigious company. For 4 years in a row now L’Occitane’s Divine Cream has been voted number one by The Beauty Bible for best anti-aging face creams. I personally use this oil and face cream and I can tell you that it is number one for a reason. This face cream keeps you moisturized all day but doesn’t make you feel oily. Its great too because it’s a day and night cream in one. The cream is made from an immortelle flower, which is in the sunflower family. This beautiful flower never wilts away but instead stays perfect forever. It also contains essential fatty acids and nourishing vitamin E. Perfect for after being out in the hot sun all day!

loccitane 4

L’Occitane doesn’t just make high quality lotions- they also have hair products, shower gels, shaving lotion, men products, baby products and exclusive perfumes.

Whether you are looking for a new face cream or just need a fun new perfume, L’Occitane is your summer skin care headquarters!
