We shared the honey fried chicken entrée ($18). It was served with green garlic grits, red eye gravy and pickled vegetables. The chicken was moist and I enjoyed the honey flavor, but the breading was too thick. The crust was they kind you worry about chipping a tooth or cutting the roof of your mouth. I assume they double bread and there is just no need for that. The grits and gravy were excellent and the pickled vegetables added much needed acidity to the dish. I really loved the roasted carrots we got as a side dish, as well.
We were not going to get dessert but when I glimpsed the salted pecan caramel ice cream ($4) on the dessert menu, I couldn’t resist. It was a generous portion – two large scoops, but the ice cream was overwhelmingly sweet with no hint of the promised salt.
I enjoyed my cocktail. I got the home made berry lemonade with vodka. It was sweet, tart and refreshing, perfect for a hot Atlanta night.
This is the last of my Atlanta posts. I did eat at the food court at Peachtree center a lot between bridge sessions, but none of my meals were blog-worthy. I wish I had had the time hit Bacchanalia or Miller Union, both very highly regarded, but there wasn’t enough time. I’m sure Nationals will be back in 7 years.
