Yum.

All of you folks from metro, where there are hundreds of great restaurants, just keep scrolling down the page.

Daryl and I had lunch today at The City Market, at the corner of Cherry and Third, in Macon where The Cherry Corner used to be. The Market has just opened, and let me just say, this place is going to do very well. The new owners have recently moved to Macon from Las Vegas. With family roots in Georgia, they were looking for a historic southern town and decided Macon was home. We will all be glad they did. The menu-large, fresh salads, innovative sandwiches, fresh made pizza, pasta and more-offers well prepared food, at reasonable prices. For lunch, Daryl had a meatball sub that was bigger than his plate, homemade potato chips and tea. He liked it. I could tell by the fact that he was not talking. I had a Chinese Chicken Salad that was large, fresh, and very tasty and a soft drink. Our bill was about $16.00.

They open at 7 am for breakfast, and beginning soon will also offer a dinner menu. Local celebrities can be spotted at the bar. (They serve wine and beer.) That's where I saw the dynamic duo, Russell Boston and Commissioner Joe Allen, this morning. When I interrupted their plotting and planning, Joe was enjoying his plate of grits, eggs, bacon and toast, and assured me that despite coming from Vegas, the new owners definitely know how to make grits. (He also let us know that he intends to vote against the county budget. See what you can learn here?)

These are nice folks, a great location and a good addition to downtown dining options. Go there.
