I finally made it to Woodfire Grill to see the Great Kevin Gillespie and team. I get the hype, the man has some serious skills! All in season, local, and sustainable - it really doesn't get any better. If you go, opt for the tasting menu. It is a bit more than a la carte, but totally worth it. We chose the 5 course (the 7 seemed like a bit much for our bellies) He made a special pescatarian menu for me with shrimp, squid, and veggie items with a sea bass finale. My Mom had the the shrimp and squid first courses followed by the signature pork belly, quail, and lastly duck. Everything was beyond fantastic. The flavors are complex without being overpowering - perfectly sauced, and pretty much a beautiful symphony in your mouth. The ambiance and service are 5 star without being too stuffy. Indy music plays quietly in the background and the servers are all super approachable. At one point, I was unsure of the appropriate etiquette for eating the "amuse" which was served on a ceramic spoon - but our server was awesome and didn't make me feel silly for asking. All items come from local farms and taste super fresh. Even the cocktails there are organic - there are no mixers behind the bar. My mom asked for a Lynchburg Lemonade before we were seated and he made the Lemonade right there! I'll be back for sure. The love and care that goes into the menu is an Atlanta experience not to be missed.

Consistently fun. Go to their website to see who will be coming in. The club attracts some of the best blues performers in the country. Just so you know, if you are not going to order food, you will not get a table. You will sit,or stand, at the bar. Sitting at the bar is good because you get a decent view of the stage. You are sitting a bit higher then the table patrons. The music is loud. The wings are tasty.
