The Shil-Shul Diaries

The story begins in a cramped booth at the "faux" New York deli 'Noshville' in Nashville TN on a blustry day after thanksgiving November Friday day in 2008. In between my wife, Rachel, and my brother, Michael, I sat across from my "cooler than me" cousins Mark and Sarah, and Sarah's just as cool husband, Danny. Mark, who lives the awesome life being a lawyer living in San Francisco working for Facebook, with his only downfall being his SEVERE lactardation..which has never been medically or scientifically proven to exist in Mark.. Sarah and Danny are foodies from NYC who have tried every dive "chicken finger" hut and "curry on a stick" in the big city. Danny and Sarah had discussed that they were trying to go to as many places from Bobby Flay's 'Throwdown' show as they could, and that there was one in Nashville we had to try.....a place that I had never heard of in my 13 years of living there..I will get to that adventure later.

I got an idea from my cool cousins idea. An idea became a hobby. And the hobby became an obsession. And thus produced the list.....a world-famous spreadsheet...of every restaurant that has ever been featured on Food Network and Travel Channel....every restaurant from the famous shows like "Throwdown", "Man V. Food", "Man v. Food Nation", "Food Feuds", "Food Wars", "Best Thing I Ever Ate", and "Diners Drive-Ins and Dives" to the obscure "Best Food Ever", "Meat and Potatoes", and "101 Best Places to Chowdown", plus my additions of the restaurants of famous chefs and local places of legend. Names, cities, food they are famous for, and addresses. It was and still is an obsession. As of 9:24am on January 7th, 2015, THE LIST HAS 3,116 RESTAURANTS ON IT...WITH A FEW OVERLAPS HERE AND THERE. And then over Pastrami Eggs Benedict at Nate N' Al's Deli in Beverly Hills, Hannah and Andrew, our good friends, gave me the idea of the blog. Document every place I went. And thus, "The Shil-Shul Diaries" was born. I will log the places, the shows they are from, and what I had. So far, every place I have been has been amazing, except two, one being mediocre, and another being down right awful.

If there is a city you have been to, or are going to, or are from and want to know what from my list is in the city, send me a email at agmarks@gmail.com

Holeman & Finch Public House




From Best Thing I Ever Ate, Best Food Ever, Best Burger in America, and every single travel and food magazine to ever exist on the face of the planet.



2277 Peachtree Road Northeast Atlanta, GA 30309

The Burger.

"We all need to make time for a burger once in a while."- Erica Durance

That's all it reads on the menu is 'The Burger'.

"I always want to find the best burger in town."- Dennis Quaid

No substitutions. No exclusions. No add ons. 



"You can find your way across this country using burger joints the way a navigator uses stars."-Charles Kuralt


The one burger I have been waiting, basically my whole life, to try.

"I enjoy the burger joint the same way I enjoy fancy meals."- Aby Rosen

The very top of my culinary bucket list.

The Holman-Finch Burger. The most elusive culinary item in the world.  The urban legends drape this masterpiece in a shroud of mystery.  They only make 24.  They don't tell you when its available.  People get there at open and wait until they close to try and get one.  They are the most desired food in Atlanta.  Truly both a myth and a legend. An endeavour, an experience, an adventure, an expedition, a culinary masterpiece.

My beloved friend Evan Remer will tell you that I use the words "epic", "best", "game changer", "incredible", "fantastic", "favorite", "amazing", "fabulous" are often and freely as words like "the", "and", "it", and "food".  I am a overly optimistic food blogger.  I don't feel the need to crap on places like people on Yelp or food critics who get paid to do so.  I support local business and culinary genius.  I want to share the great culinary experiences with you.  I want you to be able to enjoy what I have enjoyed.  Food is meant to be loved and shared by all and thus I feel the need to only express the loves I have had in the culinary world.

And I love the great burgers of the culinary world. I love to share my stories of the great burgers of the culinary world and love to have them shared with me. And there have been a lot of them….

I called the Billy Goat Tavern in Chicago "a landmark…incredible..a institution, an experience, a land mark, and a cannot miss culinary and cultural experience"

I called Fat Mo's in Nashville  "a extraordinary culinary extravaganza"

I called Pie N' Burger in Pasadena "as good as it gets without being too much.  It is simple, American, incredible comfort food."

I called Burger Up in Nashville "fantastic"

I called Rotiers in Nashville "phenomenal"

I called the White Spot in Charlottesville "perfect"

I called Apple Pan in LA "delicious"

I called Rockit in Chicago "phenomenal"

I called Sobelman's in Milwaukee "outstanding"

I called Sobelman's in Milwaukee "great"

I called "Terry's Turf" in Cincinnati "most unique burger experience I have ever had in my life.  This place is outrageous and outstanding"

I called Cherry Cricket in Denver "really great"

I called Kuma's Corner in Chicago a "top 3 burger of my life"

I called Hodad's in San Diego "wonderful"

I called Bobby's Burger Palace in Vegas "amazing"

I called Umami in LA "AMAZING AND A MUST GO FOR ANY BURGER FANATIC OR FOODIE! THE BURGERS ARE INVENTIVE AND PERFECTION"
I called Father's Office in LA "awesome"

I called the Grill 'Em All in LA "delicious"

I called Matt's Bar in Minneapolis "incredible"

I called the Vortex in Atlanta "amazingly awesome"

I called Thurman's in Columbus "THE BEST BURGER I HAVE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE....TO THIS DAY...NOTHING COMES CLOSE OR EVEN COMPARES...I HAVE HAD THOUSANDS OF BURGERS...ASK MY CHOLESTEROL LEVELS...BUT NOTHING COMES CLOSE TO HOW AMAZING THIS PLACE IS..IT HAUNTS ME HOW INCREDIBLE THIS PLACE IS!!!

EVERYTHING ABOVE WAS, IS, AND WILL FOREVER BE 100% TRUE AND ACCURATE AND I WOULD TESTIFY TO THE LEGITIMACY OF ALL THESE STATEMENTS UNDER OATH IN THE SUPREME COURT!!!

HOWEVER, ON THIS DAY, FEBRUARY 9TH, 2015.  I HAVE COME TO ONE CONCLUSION. THE SEARCH FOR THE BEST BURGER IN AMERICA IS OVER BY A LANDSLIDE…

THE HOLEMAN FINCH BURGER IS LEGITIMATELY CULINARY PERFECTION.  

THE HOLEMAN FINCH BURGER IS THE BEST IN AMERICA AND THE BEST I HAVE EVER HAD. HANDS DOWN, NO QUESTIONS ASKED, NO DEBATE ABOUT IT.  THE BEST.  EVER!

ALL THE STORIES ARE TRUE. ALL THE RUMORS ARE TRUE. ALL THE LEGENDS ARE TRUE

THIS IS THE MOST PERFECT BURGER. PERFECT MEAT. PERFECTLY COOKED MEAT (THEY DONT ASK HOW YOU WANT IT COOKED). PERFECT CHEESE, PERFECTLY MELTED CHEESE. PERFECT COOKED ONIONS. PERFECT SAUCES.

EVERYTHING IS MADE OR GROWN IN HOUSE FROM THE GROUND BEEF TO THE BUNS TO THE PICKLES AND SAUCES.

A DOUBLE STACK BURGER. 

BUN, BURGER, GRILLED ONION, BURGER, CHEESE PICKLE.

MY HOLEMAN FINCH BURGER EXPERIENCE CAN BE SIMPLY EXPLAINED BY ONE OF MY FAVORITE TV CHARACTERS OF ALL TIME, MARSHALL ERIKSEN, IN ONE OF MY FAVORITE EPISODES OF ALL TIME, BEST BURGER IN NYC, OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE TV SHOWS OF ALL TIME, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER"

"Just a Burger? Just a burger. It’s so much more than "just a burger." I mean…that first bite—oh, what heaven that first bite is. The bun, like a butter freckled breast of an angel, resting gently on the perfectly melted cheese and sauteed onions, flavors mingling in a seductive pas de deux. And then…a pickle! The most playful little pickle! A patty of ground beef so exquisite, swirling in your mouth, breaking apart, and combining again in a fugue of sweets and savor so delightful. This is no mere sandwich of grilled meat and toasted bread.  This is God, speaking to us in food."

I DOCUMENTED MY FIRST BITE, AND MY REACTION SPEAKS MORE THAN ANY WORDS I CAN SAY.  A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS, BUT A VIDEO IS WORTH A INFINITY.

video


THE ONLY WORDS THAT NEED TO BE SAID IS THAT THIS IS THE BEST BURGER I HAVE EVER HAD AND COULD EVER DREAM OF, AND THEREFOR IT IS THE BEST IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.

NEVER AGAIN WILL I OR CAN I SAY "BEST BUGER EVER" BECAUSE THERE IS NO WAY I CAN IMAGINE ANYTHING TOPPING THIS…BUT I AM OPEN TO THE CHALLENGE

PS-THE HOLEMAN FINCH BURGER IS NOW ON THE MENU PERMANENTLY.

PPS- WE ALSO HAD THE MOST OUTSTANDING APPETIZERS AND DESSERT. PIMENTO CHEESE, DEVILED EGGS, BACON CARMEL CORN, AND PRETZEL BITES. OUTSTANDING. WE ALSO HAD HOMEMADE ICE CREAM SANDWICHES FOR DESSERT! UM, YES PLEASE AND THANK YOU!










PPPS- THANKS TO PHIL FOR MAKING THIS DREAM COME TRUE (I HEARD RASCAL FLATTS 'MY WISH' PLAYING IN MY HEAD AS I TOOK EACH BITE)

PPPPS-THANKS FOR JORDAN AND ADAM FOR BEING ALONG FOR THE CULINARY ADVENTURE.

FROM BEST SOUTHERN FOOD IN AMERICA, MAN VS. FOOD, BEST THING I EVER ATE, #86 ON BEST PLACES TO CHOWDOWN, FOOD PARADISE

THIS PLACE SCREAMED AND TOPPED MY CULINARY BUCKET LIST AND FOR A DAMN GOOD REASON.  WHEN MY FRIEND ASKED WHAT I WANTED TO DO IN CHARLESTON, HOMINY WAS IT.  ANYTHING ELSE WE DID WAS JUST DESSERT, SWEET AND WONDERFUL, BUT HOMINY GRILL WAS THE APPETIZER AND MAIN COURSE OF MY VISIT.

THIS PLACE WAS A MUST FOR ME!  LOOK HOW MANY TIMES IT HAS BEEN FEATURED!!!!!


THIS PLACE IS SOUTHERN FOOD PARADISE! GREAT SERVICE, AMAZING FOOD, AND AN AT HOME CULTURE AND FEEL.  THE RECIPES FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE GONE UNCHANGED FOR YEARS AND FOR DAMN GOOD REASON.

FRIED GREEN TOMATOES FOR APPETIZER AND THE CHARLESTON NASTY BISCUIT WERE MY MEAL FOR THE DAY.  I LOVE FRIED GREEN TOMATOES SO MUCH, WITH A LITTLE AIOLI OR RANCH TO DIP IN.  HOLY SWEET TEA!  AND THE CHARLESTON NASTY BISCUIT IS A GUT BUSTER.  CHICKEN BISCUIT (WHAM BAM THANK YOU MA'AM) WITH CHEDDAR CHEESE DRENCHED IN GRAVY.  THAT'S SOUTHERN FOR NYQUIL.  PUT YOU INTO A HAPPY SLEEP.  WASH IT ALL DOWN WITH SOME SWEET TEA.  YES MA'AM AND YES SIR!!!

THIS PLACE IS A INSTITUTION, A LANDMARK, A MECCA AND FOR DAMN GOOD REASON.  HOMINY GRILL, YOU DID NOT LET THIS SOUTHERN BOY ON THE WEST COAST DOWN!  

THE SHRIMP AND GRITS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE OUT OF THIS WORLD AND A MUST TRY, BUT TO BE HONEST, IM A TOMATO BASED SHRIMP AND GRITS FAN NOT A CHEESE BASED SHRIMP AND GRITS FAN.  ITS PERSON PREFERENCE.

IT'S PLACES LIKE THIS THAT MAKE EVERY PERSON LEAVE WITH A LITTLE DRAWL IN THEIR VOICE.  

BUTCHER AND THE BEE






FROM AMERICA'S BEST SANDWICH.

The only BYOB joint in Charleston also makes its finest sandwiches, which you can knock back in a dining room that feels like a friend’s place. Their menu, scrawled on a chalkboard, is constantly changing depending on the region’s local offerings, but always features innovative creations"

ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT THIS WAS HAND DOWN, NO QUESTIONS ASKED, EASILY, WITHOUT ANY FORM OF ARGUMENT OR DEBATE THE BEST LUNCH I HAVE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE.  MOST AMAZING SANDWICH, SIDES, AND DRINK.

OPEN FROM 11AM-3PM AND 11PM-3AM THIS PLACE IS OUTSTANDING IN EVERY WAY.

THIS PLACE IS INCREDIBLE.  TUCKED BEHIND A BOURBON DISTILLERY AND A COFFEE SHOP, THIS PLACE IS THE DEFINING EXAMPLE OF WHERE AMERICAN CULINARY GREATNESS IS HEADED.  INSANELY INVENTIVE AND INCREDIBLE FOOD SERVED IN AN INSANELY INVENTIVE AND INCREDIBLE WAY IN A CASUAL DINING EXPERIENCE

BEST PIZZA IN AMERICA

MY NEW CULINARY DOCUMENTATION OBSESSION IS THE THRILLIST.  THE THRILLIST IS THIS AMAZING WEBSITE THAT KEEPS PEOPLE UP TO DATE ON ALL THE AWESOME THINGS TO DO, DRINK, EAT AND SEE IN A CITY.  FOR ME, MY OBSESSION FALLS ON THEIR WEEKLY "21 BEST (FILL IN FOOD) IN AMERICA".

BURGERS, BBQ, WINGS, STEAK, BURRITO, BRUNCH, DINER, AND IN THIS CASE PIZZA.

THE BIG ONES, THE POPULAR FOODS, THEY RE-DO EVERY YEAR.  LIKE PIZZA

EVO IN CHARLESTON IS THE ONLY PLACE TO BE FEATURED TWICE ON THE "21 BEST PIZZAS IN AMERICA" ARTICLE, FOR 2013 AND 2014.

IN A TOWN THAT IS FOCUSED ON TRADITION AND "HOW IT'S ALWAYS BEEN DONE", EVO BUCKS THIS TRADITION.  IN THE UP AND COMING NORTH CHARLESTON, EVO IS YOUR CLASSIC EXAMPLE OF THE NEXT GENERATION OF CULINARY GREATNESS.  CASUAL,  AMAZING FOOD WITH AMAZING CRAFT BEER.

EVO'S TRIFECTA PIZZA IS THE BEST PIZZA I HAVE EVER HAD.  PERFECTLY COOKED CRUST, PERFECTLY PREPARED SAUCE, PERFECTLY MELTED CHEESE.  TOPPED WITH PEPPERONI, BACON, AND MY FAVORITE PIZZA TOPPING, TINY SAUSAGE CRUMBLES.  NOT GIANT PIECES OF SAUSAGE.  GIANT MEATBALL SIZE PIECES OF SAUSAGE.  I LIKE TINY TINY TINY CRUMBLES.  MR. GATTI'S STYLE (AND IF YOU GET THAT REFERENCE, PAT YOURSELF ON THE BACK).

EVO IS SIGNIFICANT TO THE CITY OF CHARLESTON AS IT SIGNIFIES THAT THE NEXT GENERATION OF CULINARY BRILLIANCE COMING TO THE CITY IS BOTH OVERWHELMINGLY STRONG IN TERMS OR CREATIVITY OF TASTE KEEPING THAT TRADITION ALIVE OF AMAZING FOOD IN THE CITY WHILE BUCKING THE TRADITION OF SNOBBY, 1% ONLY ALLOWED IN TERMS OF BEING ABLE TO ENJOY FINE DINING

THE VEGAS BUFFET EDITION

THERE IS NO BETTER EXAMPLE OF PURE UNADULTERATED GOOD OLD FASHIONED AMERICAN GLUTTONY THAN A VEGAS BUFFET.

IT IS AN EXPERIENCE.

IT IS AN JOURNEY.

IT IS A GASTRONOMIC MARATHON OF GLORY.

IT IS INCREDIBLE.

IT IS AMAZING.

IT IS OUTSTANDING.

IT IS DISGUSTING TO THINK ABOUT AFTER.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT MUST BE EXPERIENCED BY ALL…JUST ONCE.

TO ME, THE INCREDIBLY AMAZINGLY, FANTASTICALLY, OUTSTANDING EXPERIENCE AND JOURNEY OF THE GASTRONOMIC MARATHON OF GLORY KNOWN AS A VEGAS BUFFET CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED AND DEFINED BY ONE OF MY FAVORITE TV CHARACTERS OF ALL TIME, TRACY JORDAN FROM 30 ROCK, WHO STATED "THERE NEEDS TO BE A GIANT SHRIMP MADE OUT OF SHRIMP DIVING INTO A BOWL OF SHRIMP THAT ARE ALL DROWNING IN A POOL OF COCKTAIL SAUCE!"
















THIS QUOTE AND PHOTO SAY IT ALL WHEN IT COMES TO A VEGAS BUFFET.  IF THERE ISNT THIS LEVEL OF INSANE DECADENCE AND OVER THE TOP-NESS WHEN IT COMES TO THE FOOD, THEN YOU AREN'T AT A TRUE AND LEGIT VEGAS BUFFET


I HAVE BEEN TO FOUR VEGAS BUFFETS, ALL AMAZING, ALL DIFFERENT, ALL WORTH A TRY.


AMATEUR MOVE IS TO JUMP RIGHT IN AT THE FIRST THING YOU SEE.  I ENCOURAGE YOU TO TAKE A COUPLE WALK AROUND AND PLAN OUT YOUR MEAL.  YOU HAVE (NORMALLY) TWO HOURS.  TAKE YOUR TIME AND GET YOUR $49.99 WORTH.


WYNN BUFFET
THE WYNN 3131 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109
FROM BUFFET PARADISE





"Voted Best Buffet in Las Vegas"* Seafood Station: split Alaskan opilio crab legs with clarified butter, citrus & taragon glazed salmon fillet, jumbo black tiger shrimp with cocktail sauce and sushi rolls; black Angus prime rib and pizza. Dessert Station: candy apples, tres leches cake."


The best buffet I have ever been to in Vegas.  It is elegant, grand, and amazing.  The buffet is huge and is split among different types of cuisine, so you know what you are getting when you approach each station. You won't find pizza next to sushi at this place.  This place has so much variety yet they are very specific.  They don't have a dish just to have it.  One station may have 3 items only, but know that those three are there for a reason. The shellfish station is overwhelming with shrimp, crab, oysters, and crawfish.  This was my first buffet in Vegas, and I must say, it was the best one I have been to yet.



BACHANNAL BUFFET AT CEASAR'S PALACE
Caesars Palace, Caesars Palace Drive, Las Vegas, NV 89109




This place is a palace within a palace. This place is a monstrosity.  There is so much at this place, it is impossible to see everything they offer.  It goes on for miles and miles.  This place requires the most planning.  Do not get sidetracked with sliders and hot dogs and pizza.  Go straight for the stuff you cannot get at any normal restaurant in your hometown.  Go straight for the ultimate amounts of meats and shellfish.



BELLAGIO BUFFET
Bellagio, 3600 South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, NV 89109
#76 BEST PLACE TO CHOW DOWN AND FOOD PARADISE











"200 selections. suckling pig, Beef Wellington, sushi rolls, fish-smoked salmon roulade, Alaskan crab legs"


This will be short and to the point, just like the Bellagio buffet. The most straight forward, classic buffet in Vegas.  This is everything you want from a buffet.  Simply a delicious variety of amazing food.  Shellfish, meat, breads, fruits, sushi, it's all here. This place is exactly what you want when you say Vegas buffet. Bellagio buffet is wonderful and is even better for brunch.


WICKED SPOON AT THE COSMOPOLITAN
3708 South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, NV 89109









FROM BEST THING I EVER ATE AND BUFFET PARADISE


"Tasty and unusual selections served tapas-style in individual portions - Asian Station: sushi, egg drop soup, udon noodles, pork fried rice and "Thai Tofu" (crispy fried tofu with red Thai curry sauce topped with peanuts); slow-roasted lamb bone marrow, fiery fried chicken, Caribbean mojo sauce glazed rotisserie chicken, pork belly steamed bun with spicy mayo and pickled vegetables, "Angry Mac & Cheese" (spicy macaroni and cheese). Dessert Station: gelato bar (salted peanut butter and strawberry balasmic)."

The smallest of the buffets.  This place is very specific in their foods.  Maybe 50 food options as opposed to 200 at other places.  Everything is meant to be eaten in small portions.  At Wynn, Ceasars, and Bellagio, I couldn't see my plate after my first trip up because I have overloaded with meat, sushi, and shellfish.  This place limits what they give out.  Don't get me wrong it's all you can eat, but the amount they serve doesn't overwhelm you and limits you. Remember when I said that Vegas buffet can be summed up in Tracy Jordan's quote ""THERE NEEDS TO BE A GIANT SHRIMP MADE OUT OF SHRIMP DIVING INTO A BOWL OF SHRIMP THAT ARE ALL DROWNING IN A POOL OF COCKTAIL SAUCE!" This place serves each of its shrimp in individual shot glasses containing a tiny lemon and cocktail sauce. You could get as many shot glasses as you want, but you cant carry that many on a plate and they are tough to fish out. I want a plate full of shrimp and a bowl of cocktail sauce.


MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT

COMING SOON….
HOLMAN AND FINCH BURGER
HANDS DOWN, ACROSS EVERY FORM OF MEDIA, VOTED THE BEST BURGER IN AMERICA
