Todd Richards, most recently executive chef at the cafe in the Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead, took over the reins of the Shed after Lance Gummere left to join Shaun Doty at upscale chicken shack Bantam + Biddy. Richards draws on homey flavors to craft polished plates: Smoked pork chop with sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, and a not-too-sweet huckleberry sauce is one standout. Contrast the menu’s many Southern flavors with an Indian-inspired starter of lamb meatballs with yogurt, date chutney, and mint. Don’t worry, customer favorites like the slider specials and the homemade “Ding Dong” haven’t disappeared.
