Saturday is a self-care day. I would spend my day relaxing and getting a manicure/pedicure or a massage. My evening would be capped off with dinner with friends to catch up.
Q: What’s your favorite restaurant in Atlanta?
Chef Rob’s Caribbean Café. They have an array of Caribbean-inspired tapas, food, and cocktails. My favored dishes are the egg rolls with jerk shrimp and cilantro lime sauce, and the blackened mango chicken dish with coconut rice. This place never disappoints.
