Buckhead snapshot

Neal H. Newsom, MD, is a retired physician, world traveler and beekeeper (owner-operator of Argonne Apiary). He's also the supportive husband of Veranda  magazine founder and editor-in-chief Lisa Newsom, a father of four and soon to be a two-time grandfather who has delivered hundreds of Buckhead babies.

A Columbus, Ga., native, he served in the armed services before adopting Buckhead as his permanent home and Piedmont Hospital as his base of operations for delivering new Buckhead residents. At one time, Dr. Newsom owned the largest collection of Rubic Cubes in the Southeast.

When not accompanying his wife, a native of Thomasville, Ga., and practicing luggage-control on their trips in the U.S. and abroad, Dr. Newsom tends his bee hives and is an avid tennis player.

A widely acknowledged oenophile, he maintains an impressive wine cellar at his Argonne Avenue home and recently served as a taster at the celebrated new Bacchanalia restaurant (which sadly has moved from Buckhead to a new location at Howell Mill and Huff roads).

Dr. Newsom practices Leisure Science with one of his original Watermelon Margaritas, which he prescribes for summer relaxation.

When Buckhead Revisited's food and beverage consultant recently bemoaned the passing of the Chastain Square Azuni restaurant, Dr. Newsom introduced him to Taqueria Del Sol, newly opened by Azuni's operators next to Bacchanalia. We heartily recommend his establishment and encourage first-time guests to arrive early for lunch (it opens at 11:00 a.m.). For evening meals, reservations are recommended. Call 404-352-5811. Try the delicious shrimp corn chowder and the fish tacos, and tell them we sent you.
