The Porter, Atlanta

Wednesday was a beautiful afternoon in Hotlanta and Neto had just finished his big lighting job (someone has to work!). This was reason enough to walk down the street to a bar called the Porter in Little 5 Points. Its another "gastropub" (pub with higher end food) The style of the Porter is rustic with a cement bar stretching down the long narrow space. Lined with chatty locals, and no pretentiousness, it's a true pub atmosphere. The beer list is insane -about 4 pages long. Smita and I both tried the Blanche de Bruxelles (a blonde beer spiced with coriander, bitter orange peel, nicely lemony) So refreshing!
The apps were equally satisfying. We feasted on the Belgian fries, the brandade (a codfish, potato and garlic confit) and the fried goat cheese sticks.
The Porter has outdoor seating [on tree stumps], friendly service, and interesting people watching (if you have been to Little 5 before you know what I mean) If you are looking for a good happy hour or are a beer connoisseur, I highly recommend you stop by.
