Daryl is a moron.
@Darryl Weaver 25 years of being a chef and you still have no idea what you are talking about. Not to mentuion you claim to have spearheaded the farm to table movement yet there is no mention of you on Google except your asinine comments.
Darryl Weaver = Shoemaker
Looks like there were a lot of great events over the weekend, hope a lot of folks got the chance to enjoy some of them.
Darryl - fair commentary on the true meaning of "carpaccio," but I think people get the concept as it relates to something thinly sliced (that is red like beef and sounds like beef). And "beet carpaccio" is not exactly a new thing - if you google it, you get a couple hundred thousand hits, including recipes from the Food Network, Gourmet (from 2002), and Bon Appetit (2003). At Southbound, it's a nice (especially visually) dish, but not particularly creative given its resemblance to many forebears.
MK777 - yes, prices will be a hurdle for some. My half rack of lamb was $30, for example. Higher than what many might expect in Chamblee, but pretty much on par for similar caliber restaurants around town.
tofu in marietta??? details PLEASE!
As a 25 year vet of chefery, spearheading farm to table set-ups in 1995, working with James Beard award winners & creating menus of my own, sometimes featuring very unusual ideas, I must say how stunned I am at the notion of "beet carpaccio".
This must be truly an attempt at creativity gone extremely wrong.
Let's consider: carpaccio is a soft, near-raw meat dish, named in reference to a Venitian painter who extensively used a particular shade of light red...lighter in tone than could ever be achieved with a beet.
While the dish at Southbound may be good or even great, I can't imagine any relationship it could have with it's namesake.
Ms. Anne's Snack Bar in Kirkwood, oldie but a goodie!
Not sure why nobody comments on Ted's Montana Grill but there burgers either Bison or Beef with tons of combinations of toppings are excellent. I know its a chain but they are really great. And KUDO's to all the other joints mentioned especially Vortex, Kevin Rathbun and Chef Joey Riley at Kaleidoscope. Also surprised that nobody mentions Yeah Burger. They are small burgers but they use White Oak Provisions products, all produce is organic and you custom make what you want on top.... Just my one opinion everyone..
Can't wait for Anything Grows. looks great!
Went there last night. Very nice building, love the high ceilings. The food wasn't bad, but not special or good enough to warrant a relatively high price tag. Won't be coming back until they lower prices.
Diner Burger at The Albert
The Heritage Sandy Springs Concert was last night. The date is incorrect on the CL calendar. http://www.heritagesandysprings.org/Calend…
