Food 101 Restaurant Review

: Dark-stained wood flooring, a dark wood bar, brick wall tile and leaded glass define Food 101’s décor, which suggests the aesthetics of a 1920s speakeasy. Dishes have benefited in quality with the touch of native South Georgian Justin Keith, who has a definite understanding of what classic Southern food is all about. So the lightly crusted, firm fried green tomatoes or the Springer Mountain fried chicken (properly pre-brined and buttermilk soaked) or the crisp onion rings don't lose their authentic character, no matter how embellished. Classics include meatloaf, Georgia mountain trout, Georgia wild shrimp on grits (stone ground, of course), and crab stew. We wish the green beans were a tad more cooked --- these are not haricots verts --- but we applaud the touch of vinegar in the collard greens. Wine drinkers may choose from numerous good selections by the glass, some priced below $30 a bottle, offering very fair values. Target the bourbon pecan pie for dessert. Business types at lunch, families and romancing couples from the neighborhood have made this a genuine local establishment.
