Restaurant Eugene Restaurant Review

: Now at the head of a growing group of restaurants and other food-focused ventures, Linton Hopkins has stepped away from the day-to-day operation at his landmark Restaurant Eugene, and Chris Edwards, previously sous chef and chef de cuisine, has taken the helm. Linton's wife Gina continues to oversee the exciting wine list. Named for chef Hopkins’ grandfather, Restaurant Eugene changes its menu daily, but you can expect to find many local products, such as Georgia sturgeon caviar. Southern sensibilities and ingredients are prominent on the inventive menu. Vegetables get top billing. You’ll likely find a dish with Sea Island red peas and another with benne seeds. Sorghum, a country syrup made from a crushed grass, will play a role somewhere. Details abound; the house even churns its own butter. The ideas expressed might come from rarely seen sources, so the tasting menus, such as five courses for $95, are big hits. (A vegetarian tasting, also $95, is available as a counterpart to the chef's prix-fixe.) For dessert, consider the cheese presentation, one of the best in the city. But pastry chef Micki Kimberly’s desserts present similarly surprising ideas, such as a combination of banana, milk chocolate and curry. The good wine list of half-bottle choices is distinctive, and there are numerous equally interesting options by the glass, plus dessert wines.
