Profile

 Unpretentious, fresh, and with a great wine list to boot, this is easily the best restaurant within a two-hour drive of Atlanta. White anchovies with grapefruit and pepper, shaved Benton's country ham prosciutto, sweetbreads with Red Mule grits custard, and Frogmore stew with Georgia shrimp will reward your journey. Hugh Acheson, the hot young James Beard–winning Canadian chef, also owns the National, a restaurant closer to downtown Athens that has a sunny Mediterranean disposition.
