Sprig Restaurant & Bourbon Bar Restaurant Review

: Anthony and Jennifer Tiberia, owners of this Decatur neighborhood farm-to-fork restaurant, explore the products from a wide range of local suppliers on their menu. Southern traditions appear in the house-made pimento cheese topped with bacon jam, fried green tomatoes and smoked trout dip. Grits cheese fries are a popular appetizer, for which cooked grits are chilled, cut into batons, fried and dusted with cheese. The burger, available at lunch and dinner, is a substantial two-hander that may be ordered rare. A black bean veggie burger is available, too. Mussels are sweet and clean, and will vary in specific treatments. Entrée-size salads may be embellished with any of several proteins. Numerous items are marked gluten-free or can be made so, and even the kids' menu is prepared with care. (Note: Former chef Antonio Rodriguez has yielded command of the kitchen to Ashton Bull, but the menu hasn't changed.) The wine list features sensibly priced selections and there’s a notable by-the-glass lineup as well, but you may bring your own for a $15 corkage fee. Choose from American craft beers, including some local brews, and distinctive cocktails. Ask about the 200 or so bourbons and other rare spirits that grace the extensive inventory. The spirit-devoted patron should contemplate membership in the Oak Grove Brown Water Society, the restaurant's bourbon club.
