THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Shaun's Restaurant Review: Atlanta’s restaurant design leader, The Johnson Studio, brought out the best in this quirky space, giving owner-chef Shaun Doty the ideal platform for his artful comfort food. Shaun’s menu changes daily, depending on whatever may be fresh from local suppliers, such as Nicolas Donck’s Crystal Organic Farm in Newborn, Georgia, or what cheese is available from Sweet Grass Dairy in Thomasville, Georgia. Donck’s padrón peppers are lightly grilled and graced with extra-virgin olive oil and sea salt. What else would they need, as their fresh flavor rules the plate? The grits are from Georgia’s Logan Turnpike Mill near Blairsville. If you go for the burger, you can be sure the meat was appropriately, and perhaps organically, raised. Be sure to try dessert: the caramel-chocolate-covered sticky toffee pudding is just one inspired example. With such sides as the grilled Vidalia onion salad, vegetarians will have no trouble composing a beautiful plate. But watch out for the french fries, as they’re done in duck fat. The wine list isn't lengthy, but there's not a bad drop in the batch. Like the menu, it, too, changes often. We hope time provides more value-priced choices by the glass, and we’re delighted to see the addition of a rosé by the glass. Shaun’s is gluten-free friendly, and the wine dinners are noteworthy.
