Haven Restaurant & Bar Restaurant Review

: Michel Arnette and chef Stephen Herman, both longtime Atlanta restaurant veterans, own two restaurants in the community (the other is Valenza on the opposite end of the strip). The pair believes that simple is best and that local ingredients and seasonal rhythms give energy to a menu. By and large, the food itself is the presentation, as it should be, with no ill-conceived adornments detracting from the plates. For instance, summer's yellow tomato gazpacho sports a dab of avocado and basil oil. Regional touches include a ramp vinaigrette on local summer vegetables. The grilled Berkshire pork chop is tender and flavorful. Local ingredients range from Gulf oysters to South Carolina quail to Dillwood Farms squash blossoms and North Georgia trout. Come back for brunch and get the homemade sausage. For dessert, we suggest whatever is seasonal, such as peach cobbler with cinnamon-buttermilk ice cream. The wine list should be more exciting, and still lacks a rosé, but it has spread its wings to embrace a variety of global wine-growing regions. D'Vine Sunday Special offers many of them at $29 per bottle.
