Sprig Restaurant & Bar Restaurant Review

: The return of founding chef Robert Elliot has taken Sprig to its next level. Elliot maintains a wide-ranging coterie of local suppliers for raw materials, from fruits and vegetables to dairy and meats. Southern traditions are evident in the house-made pimento cheese, fried green tomatoes, and smoked deviled eggs with fig jam. Among the dinner selections, we like the Cajun skillet (Springer Mountain) chicken. Tasty grilled buffalo and pork meatloaf with mashed spuds, the trout and the pasta are available in half orders, making it easy to curb expense. Numerous items are marked gluten-free or can be made so, and even the kids’ menu is prepared with care. Pastry chef Megan Brent turns out house-made ice creams in flavors that vary at her whim and the seasons. Mixologist and wine specialist Marty Shaver runs a topnotch shop on all fronts. Richland Rum, made from organically grown sugar cane just south of Columbus, Ga., is part of the line-up, and his wine list, which includes the Georgia Frogtown Cellars Touché, is a study in sensibly priced selections. American craft beers, including some local brews, are offered, and distinctive cocktails also come from his practiced hand.

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
