White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails Restaurant Review

: White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails is housed in a modern downtown skyscraper, all glass and metal. Chef Joshua Hopkins’ starters include what have become mainstays of Southern-inspired menus: pimento cheese, deviled eggs, pork belly. But lurking among these fairly commonplace dishes is a unique treat: Pencil Cob grits with an assortment of wild mushrooms. While the plate fairly swims in oil, its richness is welcoming and soothing. Fried Apalachicola oysters (from the Gulf) set atop a nicely dressed pile of greens come anointed with a dab of rémoulade sauce, though we wish the coating on the oysters was lighter. For hearty appetites, there's fried chicken, but you might consider requesting its caramel sauce served on the side. For dessert, the three chocolate treat is enough to share. A collection of small-batch bourbons and other fine spirits includes not one Georgia-produced product, though local beers get plenty of play. The wine list should support the food much better than it does, and it, too, does not list local labels.
