Pop up turned restaurant, Illegal Food in the Virginia Highlands neighborhood is definitely worthy of your dinner plans. Besides Zagat rating them in the top 10 best burgers in Atlanta they have impeccable cocktails and a fresh menu that changes daily.
I enjoyed four courses that included a cocktail. The portions you get with every course will put you in a food coma so take a date, a best friend or a hungry stranger to share with.
After finishing my crab cake I was presented with a coffee roasted pork belly porchetta that was life changing! Placed on a bed of collard greens and a parsnip & apple purée, every bite melted in my mouth. If that wasn't enough I also had the rigatoni with Italian sausage. Soon after I was ready for a nap.
I ended my meal with a chocolate tiramisu. If you follow me on Instagram you know how much I love tiramisu so this was a real treat!
Owner and head chef Steven Lingenfelter outdid himself! Illegal Food is a Atlanta gem so do yourself a favor and go!
