Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Farm egg
$$$, Happy Hour, Outdoor Seating, Reservations, Full Bar, American, Breakfast, Southern / Soul, New American, Midtown
"This dish has been on the menu almost since the beginning and it shouldn't go anywhere. It's the perfect fried rice dish. They rotate a cast of different sausages and vegetables depending on the season, but the perfectly cooked egg and crispy rice make this dish a classic."
Pimento cheese w/ bacon marmalade
$$$, Happy Hour, Outdoor Seating, Reservations, Full Bar, American, Breakfast, Southern / Soul, New American, Midtown
"There are very few times in my career where I can be confident in saying that there is no one that has created this dish before. Then there's the time when you try something like Ryan Smith's pimento cheese in a jar, and two things cross your mind. First, why the eff did I not think of this before him?! Second, no one has created a pimento spread that tastes this good or is as unique. If I ever move to the other side of the country, I’ll introduce this to them and make the world a better place."
Super-Food
$$$, Happy Hour, Outdoor Seating, Reservations, Full Bar, American, Breakfast, Southern / Soul, New American, Midtown
"The Super-Food comes with a delicious hanger steak and a wide variety of vegetables as its accompaniment, including black-eyed peas, Brussels sprouts, sweet peppers, turnips, and fennel. It's also garnished with shallots and goat cheese."
Kimchi rice grits
$$$, Happy Hour, Outdoor Seating, Reservations, Full Bar, American, Breakfast, Southern / Soul, New American, Midtown
"I love this dish because it really tells the story of Atlanta and the New South, the crossroads of the Lowcountry and Buford Highway on a plate. If they are serving this with pork belly, I dare you to not order a second helping."
"Lady Snowblood" with St. George Botanivore Gin, Bergamot, Yuzu Miso, Vanilla, Lime, Sesame Oil
$$$, Happy Hour, Outdoor Seating, Reservations, Full Bar, American, Breakfast, Southern / Soul, New American, Midtown
"Before Kill Bill, there was Lady Snowblood. We love epic revenge films where women are kicking ass as much as we love bright and savory gin cocktails. Lady Snowblood St. George Botanivore Gin, Bergamot, Yuzu Miso, Vanilla, Lime, Sesame Oil #cultfilmsandcocktails Photo Credit: @taylorcookie"
