We arrived early on a rainy day in Atlanta. Parking was plentiful. There was no valet. That is not often the case in Atlanta. I prefer to park my own car - thank you!
The restaurant's facade is clean and simple.
The interior of the restaurant is equally understated.
During most Map Dancer dinners we'll have some sort of activity related to the history or culture of the country whose cuisine we'll be eating. It might be a trivia contest or a spelling bee. "Spell the word bouillabaisse" is an example from a previous dinner. In this instance, McDonough attorney Richard Shrade gave an extended history of Bangladesh and it's relationship with Pakistan and India. Richard took seriously the task assigned to him by our group's de facto leader Jim Macie, also an attorney. Instead of referencing Bangladesh's Wikipedia page as any normal person might do Richard bought (and read) the book "A History of Bangladesh" by Willem Van Shendel before the big day.

You can see a few other images that were taken here. Some of these images were taken with a new camera so, they're not as good as one might like.
