The Feed Store Restaurant Review: Owner Celita Bullard's grandmother, Ada Estelle Smith Harris, operated a feed store within these walls until 1989. A National Register building, the structure provides lots of texture and visual interest while sheltering patrons from the noise of overhead jets landing at Atlanta's airport. Nothing remains from the jazzier menu that Peter Golaszewski established when the restaurant opened. Three chefs later, the offerings have been trimmed, and the severely shortened wine list presents little of interest. Southern touches remain but seem either out of place or improperly executed. Example: pimento cheese on fried green tomatoes. Fried chicken is a mostly boneless "airline" breast; braised short rib similarly is boneless. Best bets are the fried battered pork chops, three good-size classic Southern-style chops that are tender and not greasy. But they're served with a contemporary cliché: horseradish mashed potatoes. Vegetables are crisply done, although with an overdose of garlic. Baked beans get a hit of local product Coca-Cola. For dessert, get a scoop of High Road ice cream.
