Concierge.com's insider take:
Dining critics have called Shaun Doty's Inman Park dining menu everything from "contemporary Southern" to "a work of quiet beauty." Doty has worked with the world's best (including Michelin-recognized chef Guenter Seeger), but his menu has a gentility that keeps both food snobs and neighborhood diners coming back for second helpings. The daily menu features local ingredients and regional quirks (grilled free-range chicken might be paired with grits, homemade pork bangers, and smoked-ham turnip greens; a fried sweet potato pie served à la mode with chestnut honey triggered our sweet tooth). After a drink at the stone slab bar, pick a perch at the 14-seat communal table adjacent to the open kitchen or opt for something more private either on the patio or at one of the banquette tables circling the dining room.Tiffany J.
