Atlanta's favorite restaurant just turned 20 and they have quite a lot to celebrate! South City Kitchen Midtown has made a name for itself by specializing in contemporary Southern cuisine with a sophisticated twist. If you are in Atlanta, looking for a good, home-cooked southern meal, then look no further. The South City Kitchen menu can speak for itself, but even the atmosphere speaks volumes. Located in the historic area of Crescent Avenue, the restaurant is nestled in a historic bungalow that just screams southern charm.

The menu boasts some of the south's favorites, such as shrimp and grits, buttermilk fried chicken, she-crab soup, fried green tomatoes and banana pudding. Everything on the menu is fresh and local to the south (would you have it any other way?) While dining on some of the best food the south has to offer, while not enjoy a view of the Atlanta city skyline? Their patio is literally one of the bests in the city and with the weather warming up, I can think of no better place to wine and dine. Speaking of wine, their wine list is quite exceptional as well. Enjoy some of the best southern selections and wines from all over the world. Local and classic beers are always available and change seasonally (like most of the menu).

The restaurant can host anywhere from 2-200 people with group and private dining available by request. Dress is usually more on the casual side, but can be formal if needed. South City Kitchen is usually host to many events, such as wine dinners at Ecco, tequila tastings at El Taco, patio parties at South City Kitchen Vinings, themed week-long dinners at Alma and Lure, and exclusive events for FGRewards members at La Tavola. The restaurant is conveniently located just steps from High Museum, Woodruff Arts Center, The Fox Theatre and many other local attractions, making it the perfect spot for a pre show meal or after show drink.
