About Melanie & Randy Cooper

Dear Reader,

Melanie & Randy Cooper, Atlanta-Food-Critic.com

It seems like a long, long time since we started this blog back in 2009. Since then, we’ve visited hundreds of restaurants – some good, some bad. The cool thing for us, is being able to share it with you.

We did take more than a year off during my last two years of college because the level of work that was required, combined with working a full-time job, was more than I could handle. Even after our hiatus, we were able to pick up and keep the blog going and moving forward.

Restaurants are hard work and we recognize that. Both Melanie and I have spent years in the restaurant business at various points in our lives and we have a tremendous amount of respect for the people who choose this as a profession. Our intent is not to bash any person or their work. We simply want, and expect, good food and reasonable service. When we find that, and I think you will agree we’re pretty good at finding that, we write favorable reviews. When we don’t find that, we let our readers know in the most factual of terms without any intent of malice.

We invite you to not just read our blog, but to become our friends as we share our table with you! Guten appetit!

Randy & Melanie
