Dish of the week: Graveyard's flank steak

Pardon my photo flash, but I had to share this picture of my favorite dish this week. It's the flank steak at the Graveyard Tavern in East Atlanta Village. I had it and liked it once before but don't recall experiencing this week's stand-up-and-beg-for-more effect.

The winning feature is the wide ribbon of chicmichurri that courses over the medium-rare slices of grilled steak. Unlike the many loser versions of chimichurri in this city, the Graveyard's hits a perfect balance - not overdoing the garlic and not turning the parsley into a medicinal astringent, thanks in part, I think, to a particularly fruity olive oil. It's all wrapped up with creamy mashed potatoes and goat cheese and a fan of crunchy green beans spiked with garlic.

It's a bargain at $13. However, the plating is purty but lonely. That is to say, it may not fill you up without an appetizer or a quick trip down the road afterward to Morelli's.
