Restaurant Eugene Restaurant Review

: Linton and Gina Hopkins, whose other Atlanta ventures include Holeman & Finch Public House, H&F Bread Co. and H&F Bottle Shop, operate this classy establishment named for chef Linton's grandfather. Menu selections change daily, but you can expect to find many local products, such as Georgia sturgeon caviar. An entire section of the menu is devoted to listing these farms and sources name after name. Southern sensibilities and ingredients define every dish, although they may not all be done in a classic manner. Illustrations of Linton’s particular brand of New American cuisine might include beef tenderloin with crispy onion, black trumpet mushrooms and greens, or coriander and black pepper swordfish with Gulf Coast shrimp, baby cabbage, Cope's corn purée, arugula and scallions. The ideas expressed might come from rarely seen sources, so the tasting menus, such as five courses for $85, are big hits. (A vegetarian tasting, also $85, is available as a counterpart to the chef's prix-fixe.) Pastry chef Aaron Russell's desserts present similarly surprising ideas, such as a triple chocolate caramel with cocoa nibs and vanilla froth. This menu never bores, always shines, and showcases the work of an ever inventive kitchen. The good wine list of half-bottle choices is distinctive, and there are numerous equally interesting options by the glass.
