THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED SAGA Restaurant Review: Atlanta's South African population has another enterprise where they may celebrate the culture and cuisine of their home country while acknowledging the bounty of their new one. Chef Drew Van Leuvan may well have found a home, with this diverse menu that ranges from a silky butternut and African squash soup to kingclip, South Africa's signature fish. Mild-tasting, with sweet and flaky meat, it appears regularly on the menu, with a variety of adornments according to the season. Biltong, potjie and peri peri prawns showcase the owners' South African heritage on an antipasto plate, and peri peri sauce perks up the Bloody Mary. Details are everywhere, from the mimosas at brunch made with fresh squeezed juice and a Spanish cava that merits being tasted on its own to the warmed coffee cups. Brunch is ably handled, with such treats as Anson Mill grits from South Carolina serving as the base for beautifully poached eggs. The wine list represents a great start, but needs a South African Cape classique sparkling, a rosé, and a sticky at least to fulfill its promise. The dining room is warm and contemporary, with a lovely section of upholstered seating gathered around a fireplace for pre- or post-prandial sipping.
