Food| Wisteria ATL: A Delicious Surprise
Over the weekend the hubby and I ventured into a new restaurant, Wisteria. It was such a hidden gem tucked away in the Iman Park area. The restaurant had a super cozy atmosphere with a charming intimate vibe. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and served by a very knowledgeable waitress. She was super friendly as well and made it easy to make a decision out of so many delicious sounding choices. We selected cornmeal fried calamari with a sweet and sour apricot sauce and wasabi crème fraiche as our appetizer along with a couple of adult beverages.
Hubby selected the roasted half rack of lamb served with GA red mule polenta, veggie hash and Yukon gold potato Roasted Rack of Lamb Half 28 Full Rack 46
GA Red Mule polenta, locally grown autumn vegetable hash, Yukon gold potato. He loved it. The plate was beautifully displayed and cooked to perfection!
Now I am a person that eats meat but I can definitely do without, so I opted for the veggie meal, complete with ten vegetables. Sweet Corn Pudding, which was a delicious cornbread- like slice served with potluck if you buy it as a side, creamed corn succotash, bacon braised field peas, grilled asparagus, green beans, mashed potatoes, adluh mill stone ground grits, sauteed mushrooms, roasted potatoes and sauteed peppers and onions! It was a large plate and I’m sure I took at least half of my veggies home. Oh, and I couldn’t pass of tasting the braised greens mac & cheese which was worth the trip alone. It was full of flavor and creamy, just the way I love my mac and cheese. The entire meal was just an explosion of flavor, from the lamb to the calamari.
Chef Jason really took common southern cuisines and made them sophisticated without skipping on the flavor! We had such a great date night–wonderful environment, delicious food, great drinks and my handsome husband. Make sure you add Wisteria to your date night list, You won’t regret it.
