For true cupcake connoisseurs, trying to find a perfect version of the hand-held treat can make you feel like a character straight out of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Too big. Too small. To sweet. Too bland. Too dense. Too dry. What’s a girl to do? Why, head to Little Cake Bakery (3792 Roswell Road, 404-841-8856, where the cupcakes are “just right.” The tiny Buckhead storefront, owned by self-proclaimed Francophiles Pamela Laurent and Meg Genone, has become the spot for in-the-know locals longing for something a bit more sophisticated than the ordinary Publix cupcake.

Korean fried chicken has hit Atlanta and the response has been positively cultish. What sets this new-fangled “KFC” apart is the double-frying method that produces a crunchy crust as greaseless as it is light. The manageable chunks of juicy chicken are then tossed in a sauce or served straight up. Most establishments fry each bird to order, so be prepared to wait around 15-20 minutes — a small price to pay for such perfect poultry. Click here to read the rest…

On any given night in Castleberry Hill, groups of well-dressed young people strut down the sidewalks of the up-and-coming art-and-loft district, which is not only home to the übercool monthly “Art Stroll,” but also shaping up to be one of the city’s major nightlife destinations.

    I have not had Love Letter KFC but I have had ToreOre and compared to even a 2-star Rated (according to NY Times) Bon Chon chicken in Flushing and NYC, this was an awful rendition of Korean style fried chicken. I have had friends and aficianados report that Love Letter is no better.

    I ordered both the garlic and spicy one and maybe I got a bad batch but it was pretty much like Church’s crumbly fatty fried chicken with an overwhelming amount of sugary asian seasonings.

    I am happy to see these places emerge here in Atlanta but if they are misrepresenting the truly addictive stylings and uniqueness of the crisp rendered outer-skin and subtle flavorings of Korean fried chicken, I’d rather they not exist and mislead people.

    I will give Love Letter the benefit of a doubt and give them a shot sometime soon.

    I will have to try Little Cake Bakery next time I’m on Roswell Road – I’ve gotten my office addicted to the cupcakes and sandwiches (try the turkey cranberry brie) from Maddy Cakes on Piedmont Road.
