#AskAllise - Under the Radar 'Hoods

It's time for another edition of #AskAllie! And this month Allise and I are tag teaming up on neighborhoods that you might not know about. She will be breaking down the 'hoods and I will tell you about my favorite place(s) to eat in each!

Side note: Who here is a huge Fixer Upper fan(atic)?? Think about finding your own hidden gem in one of these 'hoods and getting to be on the show. OK, dreams can happen here people! But here are some awesome places that Allise loves, which are all super affordable.

ITP (Inside the Perimeter)

1. Underwood Hills - Buckhead meets Westside. Less pricey than its neighbor Collier Hills, but still a great place for anyone who wants to be in a great school district.

Kale Me Kelly Restaurant Rec: This 'hood is know for its mexican scene. Between Nuevo Laredo Cantina, Bone Garden Cantina and La Parrilla Mexican Restaurant -- this could be the perfect new spot for you!

2. Kirkwood - East Atlanta's coziest neighborhood. Less expensive than the uber trendy VaHi and Inman Park, but still safe and walkable. Growing like a weed, so hurry before prices on homes are just as high as the others in Decatur!

Kale Me Kelly Restaurant Rec: Think about walking to some of these spots in your new 'hood: The Spotted Trotter, Ration & Dram, and Sun in my Belly.

3. Keswick Village - Brookhaven's hidden treasure. SHHH Don't tell!! Probably some of my favorite houses in Atlanta. Cottage living at its finest!

Kale Me Kelly Restaurant Rec: Warning if you move to this neighborhood, you may become a regular at Kaleidoscope Bistro & Pub. This is my favorite spot for brunch! Bottomless mimosas and a delicious menu!

4. Whittier Mills - A lot of people don't know about this charming neighborhood. Riverside is an up and coming area and I think it's a great investment...not too mention it has a lot of history and ADORABLE homes!

Kale Me Kelly Restaurant Rec: SOHO Restaurant will be your go-to spot for date night! The atmosphere and dining experience is truly exceptional. You can thank me later!

OTP (Outside the Perimeter)

5. Roswell - If you are an outdoor junkie, this is the place to be. The Chattahootchee River and parks boast everything that you will ever need... Run, Hike, Bike, Kayak, Explore. Downtown Roswell is so accessible and the market is hot, but even though the homes are more affordable they don't stay on the market long...if they go on the market at all!

Kale Me Kelly Restaurant Rec: Table & Main is my absolute favorite in Downtown Roswell. This restored cottage showcases inspired seasonal Southern cuisine, a bourbon bar & a garden patio. The menu is constantly changing, but that's what I love about this spot. They use seasonal ingredients and keep it fresh!

6. Indian Hills - If you are like me and you grew up in Suburbia, USA then you should check out Indian Hills in East Cobb. Better be quick to grab up one of the homes before they are all torn down and all that's left are luxury homes. Easy access to interstates and did I mention it sits on a 27 hole golf course, along with trails, bike paths, and so much more.

Kale Me Kelly Restaurant Rec: Chicken Salad Chick! This one is a throwback for me, because going to Auburn University for a couple of years, Chicken Salad Chick was one of my favorite places to grab lunch, because it's just so dang good. You can order a sandwich or take tubs of their various mixes to-go for a bridal shower or really any occasion!

If you're in the market to buy a home, Allise is ready to help you find the right one for you! Feel free to send her an email with any questions you may have.

In the meantime, be sure comment below with any and all housing Q's, or #AskAllise on Twitter! Until next month!
