Sprig Restaurant & 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. Cobbler is among the desserts. (Note: Former chef Britt Cloud has departed once again, leaving his sous chef, Antonio Rodriguez, to command the kitchen.) 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.

SPRIG RESTAURANT
by papasan on Sat Jan 22, 2011 8:19 am
 
I woke up this morning still chuckling about last night’s dinner at SPRIG restaurant. Why the chuckle? Because my dinner made me feel like a king hosting a banquet at a Knights of the Round Table extravaganza. Ya, I know, I have a vivid imagination. Hey! I have an excuse. I’m getting old you know. All kidding aside, my big plate entree was magnificently, LARGE. The slow roasted pork shank I ordered was fit for a king in both size and flavor.
Slowwww cooked in an oven allowed the meat to cook to perfection. Literally melting in your mouth and unbelievably juicy. This entree is part of the new winter menu at SPRIG and I’m sure it will become one of the all time favorites. Served with black eyed peas that are probably great if you are an aficionado of the little bean. I have to admit I have never been but gave them a try. Being a meat and potatoes kind of guy I think I will ask to have mashed potatoes and gravy as a substitute next time, but that’s just me.
To top off the evening fare, a new entree on the sweet treats menu was ordered. We had a slice of chocolate gooey butter cake that was simply scrumpdillyisous. Hopefully the management will forgive my OMG’s after tasting the first bite. Especially after the couples at tables around us ordered the same and actually thanked me for being so graphic in my appreciation. Having never tasted chocolate gooey butter cake, they too were thoroughly delighted with the new addition. I have it on good authority, (our lovely waitress Sarah) that this cake has become one of SPRIG patrons’ favorite desert items. If you plan on ordering it I would suggest having your waiter reserve a piece for you as the demand has been sometimes exceeding the supply. Not to worry though, the new sweet treats menu has a fried pie entree that owner Daniel Morrison raves about and he always tells the truth about food.


Bon appetite
:D
