The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast, Porsha, Kenya, NeNe, and Cynthia met up at the Arena Tavern to has out their beef in Season 7, Episode 8 Tea with a Side of Crushed Beef. The Arena Tavern is a cozy, yet upbeat spot with live music on the weekends.

This neighborhood spot, actually in Duluth, Georgia, has food which is made from scratch. Wings are rubbed with spices and baked in the oven before frying, so you could just imagine the flavor. House specialties include Louisiana Shrimp and Grits, Grilled Salmon, Fish Tacos, and Chicken Alfredo Pesto.

Anyone who might have been eating at the Arena Tavern probably had more than enough entertainment, while overhearing the RHOA make-ups and confrontations, but on Friday and Saturday nights, the tavern has bands and on Thursday nights there’s a live band.

So, this was the spot where everyone almost, sort of, made up on the Real Housewives of Atlanta.



Also in this episode, Claudia Jordan, the newest housewife wanted to do something special for her mother and grandmother, so during their visit to Atlanta from Rhode Island, she took them to Lips Restaurant. Located on Atlanta’s Buford Highway, Lips Restaurant.

Lips is marketed as a place for the ultimate in drag dining. The restaurant has Las Vegas-style drag shows and food. What more could you ask for? Lips is open every night except Mondays. On the menu, you’ll find selections named after drag divas like Ru Paul, a grilled chicken breast, Mychelle Croix, a jumbo shrimp scampi alfredo, and a Nichelle Paris, a pan roasted filet mignon. Claudia’s mother and her 90-year-old paternal grandmother looked like they were having fun at Lips, and they didn’t seem to mind being on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, even when Claudia told her mother that she had never told her that she loved her. The ladies ordered sweet and fruity drinks and Claudia’s mother explained that she shows her love by doing thing. Claudia toasted to finding herself a baby daddy and husband.
