Sunday Night Dinner at Horseradish Grill

After going to church on Sunday morning at Andy Stanley's church in Alpharetta (will give more details later), we went to Stone Mountain. It is a 3,200 acre park with a huge stone mountain, lakes, hotels, skyride, train ride, etc. We ate lunch at one of the hotels, which was a southern cooking buffet. It was okay. Nothing to get excited about.

After we left Stone Mountain, we headed to the Horseradish Grill, one of Rachel Ray's recommendations. We sat on the patio (listed by Frommer's as the most romantic spot to have dinner in Atlanta). It was about 75 degrees and pretty, but if it is the most romantic, I would hate to see the least.

The food was pretty good. Don't know if I would go back again, but we did enjoy it. I had a molasses glazed pork tenderloin that was so tender I didn't need a knife. It was served with black eyed peas and fried okra (cut lengthwise with a tempura batter). It came with homemade biscuits and jelly.

Without a doubt, the best part of the meal was dessert. We had the "white chocolate peach bread pudding" made with croissants and served with vanilla ice cream. It was so good. I would go back just for the dessert.
