Atlantans already know this, but the James Beard Foundation has made it even more clear: The work that Giving Kitchen is doing in Atlanta is some of the most important food-related philanthropic work in the country.
After naming Staplehouse as a finalist for the country's best new restaurant in 2016, Bon Appétit magazine announced today that the Old Fourth Ward restaurant has been crowned number one on their annual top 10 list.
“This isn’t about abandoning anything but about embracing something new—something we haven’t been able to put as much time and effort into,” says founder Jen Hidinger. “It’s an opportunity for us to strengthen what we’ve created.”
Staplehouse's Jen Hidinger discusses Grant Park, working with family, and when she started cooking.
This is more good news for the local star, which struggled to pick up steam when the doors opened in October of last year.
Staplehouse is the rare—and I mean really rare—restaurant where the menu devised by the chef, Ryan Smith, served with the balance and in the order he wants, provides a dining experience subtler and more seductive than what you could create for yourself from the a la carte menu.
The culinary equivalent of a first impression, a restaurant’s name is the quickest way to stand out from the competition. Can you figure out what could have been for these 8 Atlanta restaurants?
Staplehouse is the most anticipated restaurant to open in the last five years, maybe even in the last decade. But if you had walked in for dinner shortly after it opened in October, you wouldn’t have known it.
If you want to support the hardworking people who power Atlanta’s culinary engine, buy a ticket for Team Hidi 4.0, the group’s banner fundraiser slated for the end of the month, January 31, at the Georgia Railroad Freight Depot.
