Commentary: When it comes to dining, Atlanta should look inward

Atlanta is a city that looks outward far more than inward, or even nearby. Outward, say, to the Lower East Side (the General Muir’s pastrami), or to China (Gu’s Dumplings), or to France (Bread & Butterfly’s tender, airy omelets). With the glorious exception of Ryan Smith at Staplehouse, I didn’t find a posse of young, or youngish, chefs all cooking as much for each other as for the public. The priority in Atlanta is less innovation based on local ingredients, as at Staplehouse, than finding a formula that works and then pumping out food to fit it. This makes for generous, untweezed food. But it also means food that, once successful, can become rote.

They are targeting a December 2013 or January 2014 opening, and will offer menu items like sausage-stuffed onion, watermelon salad, oysters, and bourbon-roasted banana pudding, in addition to straight-up barbecue like brisket and ribs.

Todd Richards looks to make his mark on the Shed

Almost a month ago, chef Todd Richards announced his impending departure from the Ritz-Carlton in Buckhead to take over the kitchen at the Shed at Glenwood. That answer, though, left more than few questions hanging. How would the restaurant change? Would the locally-famous sliders remain? And what to make of the persistent rumors that Richards and the Shed's owners were already looking to open a new restaurant in Midtown?

Todd Richards to helm the Shed at Glenwood

Esquire recently named him one of "Four New Chefs to Watch."
