Mully's Nacoochee Grill Restaurant Review

: Designed to resemble a classic north Georgia mountain residence, with its wide veranda and homey ambience, Nacoochee Grill was taken over by a former mayor of Helen, Georgia. Greg "Mully" Ash had no experience in the restaurant business, but he's gotten a good handle on it at this enterprise, which had stood vacant for a while. Adjacent to Habersham Vineyard & Winery, the grill offers wines from several north Georgia wineries, including Habersham, of course, Cottage Vineyard & Winery in nearby Cleveland and Yonah Mountain. Food-wise, we enjoyed a spinach soup made from locally grown spinach, its flavor deriving entirely from its pristine freshness, as well as a smoked trout chowder. Trout is also served either fried or grilled. The grill is a great spot for tasting some of the local and other American wines with small plates, such as the braised then fried crispy chicken wings, fried calamari and grits fritters stuffed with red peppers. Crème brûlée is flavored with butterscotch; we think the classic version is the only one that matters.
