Livingston: A great meal on its second day open

We hit the new Livingston at the Georgian Terrace Hotel tonight. It was only its second day of operation but we had a great meal prepared by Chef Gary Mennie and his staff.

The interior of the Georgian Terrace has undergone an astonishing renovation and the Livingston, named after a food-obsessed mayor of our city in the early 1900s, is two stories of elegant woodwork, art and lighting, including a gauzy-draped central chandelier that sets an elegiac tone.

There's also patio dining, with a blinding view of the Fox's neon marquee. A roomy lounge with bar adjoins the restaurant.

Service hummed. Our waiter Paul (left), most recently of Craft, knew just about every ingredient in every dish.

Among the dishes we ordered was this roasted rabbit, partly wrapped in speck. I don't think I've encountered a better treatment of rabbit in our city. Mennie, who has an impressive resume well known to Atlanta foodies, is featuring ingredients from boutique farms when possible.

More later this week in my Grazing column.
