In Praise of Alluring Haunts Above and Below the City

“Location, location, location”—preferably with street visibility and plenty of parking—is one of the tenets of restaurant success. Ideally, though, a city should also have secret haunts where urbanites can hide from the maddening congestion and cruel glare.

New look, new menu for P’cheen

Sunday at 8 p.m. Inman Park restaurant P’cheen quietly closed its doors and will reopen tomorrow. During this brief closure, Jeff Myers of Top Flr and the Sound Table is working with P’cheen owner and executive chef Alex Friedman to reinvent P’cheen’s menu, focusing on sharable plates inspired by Octopus Bar. Proof and Provision’s Nate Shuman is consulting on a revamped moonshine cocktail list.

Zeb Stevenson to leave Livingston in July

Zeb Stevenson, executive chef at the Georgian Terrace Hotel, Livingston Restaurant Bar, and Proof and Provision, will be leaving his job at the end of July. After four years at Livingston, he says he’s doesn’t “have anything left to accomplish.” He goes into detail below, divulging some clues into his plans for what’s next.

Three Cheers

Eddie Holley, owner of Ale Yeah! (with stores in Decatur and Roswell), suggests Terrapin’s Wake ’N’ Bake, a seasonal oatmeal imperial stout. It pairs a potent 8.6 percent alcohol porter with the buzz of coffee from the brewery’s Athens neighbor, Jittery Joe’s. “I wish Spike [brewmaster Brian Buckowski] would make it year-round. Fans go rabid for it, and it’s perfect for warming up on cold winter nights,” Holley says. $12.99 for a four-pack, aleyeahbeer.com

Proof and Provision opens on Peachtree

The Georgian Terrace Hotel celebrated the opening of their new bar and restaurant Proof and Provision with a media preview earlier this week. Located beneath the wide-open white marble of the Livingston, the basement bar plays a distinct foil to the upstairs neighbor. The ceilings are low while the Livingston's are high; the walls are raw brick while the Livingston's are polished; the lights are dim while the Livingston's are bright. You get the idea. The menu strikes a similar note - where the Livingston is suited for elegance, P&P aims at opening up the collar. As chef Zeb Stevenson put it at the party, the menu is meant to be "Real fun, not bullshit fun."
