Spring has sprung on the Marietta Square as Chef Brian So’s new restaurant has my OTP taste buds extremely excited.
Opened in May of 2016, Spring is described as a farm-to-table restaurant that serves only the best hand selected and locally sourced ingredients available. Each of these is hand selected by Chef So.
The menu is dictated by seasonality and sustainability and designed to be easy to navigate. Usually containing four to five entrée’s to choose from depending on the season. I asked Chef So about the selections offered on the menu and he said:
We usually have one red meat, one poultry, one vegetarian dish as well as a fish. This allows the person dining to not become overwhelmed or intimidated by the selections.
This month, they feature a roasted eye of rib, grilled quail, sweet corn risotto and a pan-seared red snapper. Even the accompanying side dishes are chosen by what vegetables are in season. The beer and wine selections are supplied by local breweries and vineyards giving you a truly seasonal experience.
The quality of food and attention to detail at Spring is getting noticed nationally. Recently, Bon Appetit’ magazine named Spring No.7 on their list of “America’s Best New Restaurants for 2017.” Zagat has also recognized Chef So as one of the best chefs in their recent “30 under 30” article.
This restaurant is a must for any serious food lover who enjoys not just eating the best but enjoys also a truly unique experience.
Located at 83 Church Street in an old train depot, Spring is a bit hard to find as it is marked by a small wooden sign hung on the corner of Thaicoon &Sush Bar. Turn the corner and follow your nose.
Open Tuesday-Saturday from 5pm-10pm. Be sure to call ahead at 678-540-2777 as reservations are recommended. Follow them on Facebook for the latest updates.
