I have to agree with Besha. Some dishes are spot on (the meatloaf, another risotto which is no longer on the menu) while a lot of others just need something to pull them into a cohesive dish. The price point is spot on for the neighborhood, and it is a great addition to the neighborhood. I hope they can fix some things so this can be a really good restaurant, not just something that rumbles along because it's the best thing in the neighborhood.
Meanwhile, in LA, Besha is nominated for a James Beard Award for her writing. How many major awards has she been up for since leaving Atlanta? I've lost count....
Dave, I believe you are referring to Molly Gunn, co-owner of the Porter Bar (where those pieces were shot). She is also a partner in Delia's Chicken Sausage in East Atlanta.
Stephie, I assume you are referring to Charlotte of Riverview Farms? Riverview has a rotation of about 10 kinds of link sausage available at several markets and onboard FarmMobile, their mobile market truck.
Caw Caw does an incredible job with their animals. I would put Riverview's pigs head to head with theirs any day.
Jerfus, festivals are covered by a specific festival permit which includes food vendors. I believe those vendors have to be checked off by the Health Dept before they can serve. The festival permits define a specific location and timeframe and aren't ongoing interests. Once the permit expires, there can be no more sales.
