Black and Bow

Going out to dinner in Atlanta is always an interesting experience for two Atlanta foodies. Chapin and I tend to favor the same restaurants -- we like what we like! -- but we are always excited to try a new one. Better Half recently entered the Atlanta dining scene, and it's not far from home, so Chapin and I ate there this past Saturday night.

My outfit for the evening was the other Nanette Lepore dress my family gave me for my birthday. Unfortunately, I was extremely overdressed for the more casual Atlanta eatery.

Dress: Nanette Lepore Masquerade Dress

I love a dress that is sexy but still on the subtle side. I think this dress is classy, chic and fun, and still ultra feminine in that wonderful Nanette Lepore style.

The dress is still available at Saks Off 5th (link above), as well as and Amazon. It comes in a metallic green or black. (My mom liked the black better.)

Shoes: Jimmy Choo Maya Studded Pumps (no longer available)

We ate at the bar, or "Chef's Counter" as it is called at Better Half, so we had a prime view of the chefs as they prepared all the dishes. It was like watching a cooking show in real life!

The restaurant is small (intimate), but the service was still wonderful. I had the tilefish for my main course, but I think my favorite part of the meal was the appetizer: a watermelon filet with minted goat cheese, watermelon textures and basil. It was so pretty I didn't want to eat it! I highly recommend visiting Better Half if you're in the Atlanta area.
