The old adage is "write what you know" - and what we know is great music and great food. We started this blog because we wanted to share our travels and experiences. However, we quickly realized that every story inevitably became a description of our favorite meals. The result is Vega Bites, a collection of our favorite meals and restaurants both here in Atlanta and afar.
A love of great food, both the meals themselves and sharing them with our friends and each other, has been a part of our group from the beginning. When we were a young quartet, one of our dearest friends and supporters would contact presenters on our behalf to see if they were interested in having us perform on their series. What we found out later is that he told them that we were always happy to play - but they needed to make sure to feed us!
When we moved to Atlanta from NYC in 2006 to become Emory's Quartet-in-Residence, we worried about leaving behind New York restaurants. Before making the final decision we took an extensive survey of Atlanta restaurants both upscale and casual as well as the grocery stores to make sure that we wouldn't feel deprived. To our relief, we discovered that Atlanta has amazing food culture and you can find anything your heart (or tastebuds) might desire.
We look forward to sharing our love of great food with you all - check back often to see what new things we have eaten!
