One of Vinings newest and hippest restaurants opens in Hotel Indigo Atlanta – Vinings
Located in the newly-opened Hotel Indigo Atlanta – Vinings, The Public House is an innovative, southern-style restaurant with new approaches to old favorites. Their food, described as uplifting Southern cuisine, offers patrons an array of options from drinks and appetizers to brunch to a stylish, evening dinner.
Local is not only a concept to The Public House but also a practice. The restaurant is decorated with items produced or created in Atlanta, and many of the menu items hail from the city as well. Jake’s Ice Cream, for example, created an exclusive flavor, the delicious Bourbon Pecan, exclusively for The Public House. American Spirit Whiskey and Old Fourth Ward, both local distillers, stock the bar with their own bourbon and whiskeys, and signature cocktails don the menu. Peter Hill, Director of Food and Beverage, says the syrups and juices used in the custom drinks are made in-house, and many of the ingredients are fresh from local farms, dairies, and breweries.
Executive Chef Clint Shade has made a concerted effort to create something new out of the traditional at The Public House at Vinings. For instance, the bruschetta is served without tomatoes, instead embracing the Southern tradition of tomato jam. The charred ciabatta is topped with spec ham, arugula, and that delicious Southern tomato jam. Another favorite, the Portobello fries, are wedges of mushroom, crusted with herbs, and served with a Southern blue cheese dipping sauce. The restaurant honors the historic whiskey creation in the Vinings area with both menu items, drinks and decor throughout the restaurant and hotel.
Another unique dish The Public House offers is the charcuterie & cheese, not seen at many other local restaurants. The charcuterie plate features five meat options, all from Heywood’s Meat Haus in Marietta. The cheese plate contains cheese options from local dairies all over the state. Visitors can also enjoy sharable plates, salads, sandwiches and wraps, a burger bar, and some of the best classically Southern entrees you’ll find anywhere, including a pork chop with sweet potato hash and cider, shrimp and grits with bacon and Vidalia onion, and pork belly.
If drinks are what you’re after, the menu is extensive. The handmade cocktails sport one-of-a-kind names and flavors, made with local ingredients and liquors. A section of the menu is dedicated to beer from Georgia, and they even offer wine on tap, as well as a large selection of bottles!
The Public House at Vinings is providing the area with a home away from home. It is designed to bring locals and visitors together in a casual, upscale, and sexy setting. You’re sure to find a new favorite dish or an old classic that will keep you coming back for more.
The Public House at Vinings is located in the Hotel Indigo Atlanta – Vinings hotel at 2857 Paces Ferry Rd, Atlanta, GA, 30339.
