THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Seasons of Provence Restaurant Review: Nice, France, native Patrick Guyon De Chemilly married a gal from Tennessee, Tracy, and that led directly to Acworth, Georgia, where she owns a gift shop and he a restaurant. He installed his masterfully designed spot (doing most of the work himself) in the basement of the town's former theater. Low ceilings and lovely lighting create an intimate space that oozes appeal. The food, crafted by young chef Robert McDonough, whose résumé includes a stint at Maxim's, is the epitome of freshness and homey warmth. The calamari, with classic garlic-perfumed rouille and marinara sauces, are among the most tender and flavorful we've seen anywhere. Fat, tasty snails are sautéed in garlic and parsley butter, and presented on mashed potatoes. And speaking of the spuds, they adorn everything from the flounder meunière to the filet de boeuf, and we could easily make them the reason for coming to dinner in the first place. The wide-ranging wine list, while not extensive, is perfectly chosen for this establishment.
