The Pinewood Tippling Room Restaurant Review

: Well-regarded Atlanta mixologist T. Fable Jeon honed his craft in a number of places in the city. Tippling places, that is. At The Pinewood, Jeon has hired two quite fired-up young bartenders to support his efforts, and they spend their days hovering over blocks of ice, power saws at the ready, nursing the mint for the drinks, and even making their own quite tasty cola libation. (Now, if we can just get them to pay more attention to the wine list and offer glasses of red wine at appropriate --- cool --- temps.) Draft beer is the other quaff offered, and we like the locally brewed Wild Heaven "Ode to Mercy" with many of the dishes. The menu features small plates as well as more substantial mains, many Southern-inspired, such as rabbit-laced jambalaya, gumbo, house-made biscuits with crisp pork belly, and fried chicken. Order a good Caesar salad with plenty of grated cheese to accompany any dish. The burger ordered rare came closer to well done, but it was still tasty. Bourbon-laced bread pudding arrives in a small ceramic-lined cast-iron lidded pot. Complement it with a cup of Counter Culture coffee.
