Just finished dinner at this great place. From the cocktails, to starters to entrees the menu did not disappoint. The modern twist on southern fare is well executed and appealing. A foodie's paradise. I never order chicken when dining out, but the description of how this chicken was to have been prepared was so intriguing I had to try if... More

I met friends here for lunch a couple of weeks ago. I struggled to find anything I wanted to order on the limited menu of about 8 items. I ended up ordering the eggs Benedict, with a sausage triangle, and sweet potatoes. It was only so so in taste and the presentation look hurried, and not that appealing for the... More

My wife and I ate at Empire State South this weekend. I thought the menu was well thought out and the food delicious. The prices were very reasonable for the quality of food. Our bill was $34.00 for the two if us. Service and ambience were good. Tip: The main lobby of the building is closed on Sundays. To find... More

This establishment is interesting in that it is in an office building in Midtown Atlanta. It does not feel like an institutional cafeteria like many office restaurants do. It is basically a hang out for Millennials and has a "hip" feel to it upon entering. Parking is easy and accessible in the deck adjacent to the restaurant. We had Friday... More

Dined here a few years ago and was very pleased to see that it continues to do well and the quality of the cooking is still innovative and delicious.

We love farm to fresh eating and this is the place in Atlanta. The staff explains all the selections and their derivation. The appetizers are to die for and my wife could not stop raving about the beet salad. The main meal was good, I had the stuffed trout and the deserts were great. I wish I went from appetizers...

Some of my friends and I visited this location while on business. Our server was extremely knowledgeable of the menu and provided his suggestions for some delicious appetizers. He even had the bartender make mocktails for some of my pregnant colleagues. The jars appetizer was scrumptious, as was the duck meatballs. We appreciated that the food was farm to table... More

I recently had a business lunch and both the food and service proved o be great. The menu is pretty interesting, but not if you are looking for vegetarian options.

Great food well presented from the beet appetizer to the tile fish, collard greens were well seasoned and the best I've had in a while. However the service left much to be desired. I initially asked our waitress about the bourbon selection and was directed to a specialized drink menu, not seeing anything appealing I went with a couple of... More

Chef Hugh Atcheson sets the tone for this southern foodie spot ini the back of 999 Peachtree, at the intersection of 10th and Peachtree. They are very proud of their local cuisine - rightfully so. The place is small but has an upscale feel. On a nice day, the terrace is gorgeous and quiet. Go for lunch or dinner. Good... More
