In the 13 years since Tierra opened on Piedmont Avenue in Midtown Atlanta, I have gone from casual foodie, to corporate entertainer, to a once a quarter escapee from the kids on a weekend night. In all these years Tierra has remained remarkably the same: impeccable food, warm service and, of course, purveyor of the city's most famous desert.
News that my favorite Atlanta restaurant was closing hit the wire right before Christmas. While I feel I am loosing a great friend, based on our meal last weekend, owners Ticha and Dan Krisksy are going out on a Seinfeld-like high note.
In Atlanta? You still have a week before the final dinner service on Friday, February, 17. Not in Atlanta? We have the world's busiest airport, make the trip.
