Seed Kitchen & Bar
Who's generating this much buzz in the burbs? Doug Turbush left his executive chef position at Buckhead's now-defunct Bluepointe to launch a place in his own hood. His menu reflects a refreshing mélange of global influences: gently cooked shrimp tossed in the intense South Asian chile sauce called sambal; Lyonnaise salad starring bacon, curly frisée, and an egg first poached and then deep-fried; flounder with Thai herb vinaigrette; crisp chicken schnitzel. The thoughtful drink list covers craft beers, classic cocktails, and more than two dozen wines by the glass.
