One Eared Stag Restaurant Review

: Chef-owner Robert Phalen, who also co-owns Holy Taco in East Atlanta Village, must have some crazy food dreams, because his kitchen seems the very soul of the unconventional. Although always slightly radical, his dishes unfailingly seem to work. The daily changing menu relies on sustainably produced, organic and locally grown foodstuffs. Almost everything is crafted in-house, including the cured meats. We like the celery salad, tossed with north Georgia apples, as well as the pork belly with Sapelo Island clams. Offal is often available, and may range from chicken or duck hearts to beef belly. Rabbit appears in appetizers like fat-topped rillettes or sautéed liver and kidneys, and in a rabbit belly schnitzel at brunch, while the rest (buttermilk-fried) centers a main course. Pig tail may wind up in a terrine, and pig ears in yet another clever starter. Unusual fish offerings include sheepshead and margate. Pastry chef Emma Hofland turns out desserts that keep pace with the cooking’s creativity. Clementine cake with chocolate mousse is just sweet enough. The wine list presents a wide range of unique and perhaps unfamiliar choices that support the food. Check out the Heidi Schröck "Biscaya" rosé from Austria, for instance. Oyster Happy Hour is held every Mon.-Fri. from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. at the bar, with a rotating selection of chef’s choice oysters for $1 each.
