The cuisine for this nationally recognized restaurant is modern style European. The restaurant was dimly lit with an open kitchen, lending to the comfortable atmosphere. This is definitely the place to go after work for drinks and appetizers.
There were plenty of well crafted cocktails to choose from. My favorite was Long Live the Queen- Bombay Sapphire gin with elderflowers, lemon, peach, and mint.
I felt so refined and fancy.
My all time favorite was the fried goat cheese topped with honey and cracked black pepper. I never had anything like it before and was skeptical at first. Now I am believer. It was delicious! I am thinking of making a special trip to Atlanta just for that! The balance of flavors was simple but complex at the same time.
While I am not usually one to eat ice cream, I was encouraged by my group to try the house made pistachio ice cream. Delectable! It was creamy with a subtle nutty flavor and just the right amount of sweetness. They have ruined me! Now that I have had the best, that is all I want.
