Tin Lizzy’s Cantina is always looking for ways to give back to the community. The restaurant made a sizable donation to Second Helpings Atlanta last Friday, October 14. Second Helpings is a non-profit organization whose vision is to eliminate hunger in the five county Metropolitan Atlanta area by rescuing surplus food and delivering it to those in needs. Tin Lizzy’s is committed to supporting this cause and working to end hunger in the Atlanta area. The company delivered a total of $40,000 worth of food that was distributed to these partner agencies:
  • Sandy Springs Community Assistance Center
  • U Hope
  • Atlanta Mission
  • My Sister's House
  • Mary Hall Freedom House
  • 7 Bridges to Recovery
  • Malachi Storehouse
  • True Worship Christian Fellowship
  • North Fulton Community Charities

Take a step into the Southern Bistro and you will instantly feel like you’re in an upscale southern kitchen. There are not many restaurants I’ve visited that made me feel at home quite like this one. Chef Ron Eyester, self-coined as “The Angry Chef”, recently joined the newly rebranded Southern Bistro as head chef. To kick off the opening, Southern Bistro joined forces with Sean Minor wines to put together a four course dinner for local food enthusiasts and wine fanatics alike in Sandy Springs.

Sean Minor wine reps greeted guests with glasses of Prosecco. Like Mother calling everyone into the room for supper, Chef Eyester settled the crowd to prepare them for his meal. Once the dinner began, Eyester’s exuberant nature demanded the room as he went into comical detail of why he chose the ingredients for each course. His pairings caused intrigue and delight, mixing flavors one wouldn’t guess would pair well together - which to me was another instance of his comical nature coming through. Crab with a vanilla aioli, smoked duck served in egg rolls, lamb roast topped with gremolata, and tomato cobbler with ice cream - who would think such pairings would be so delicious? This fun and unusual meal created more conversation amongst guests than I have ever seen before. People were looking at one another with faces of uncertainty, almost speaking with their eyes saying ‘well here goes nothing’. Silence that filled the room as everyone took their first bite was broken by one woman loudly proclaiming “That’s so good it’ll make you want to slap your momma!”. That’s how the entire dinner went - quiet uncertainty followed by jovial exclamations and conversation. Not only was the food phenomenal, but it served as a conversation starter.

The entire dinner was something like a great first date; unusual and surprising but overall made you want more. I encourage anyone flirting with the idea of trying this restaurant to dive in and go for it...and make sure to say hello to the chef.

Southern Bistro is located at 4920 Roswell Rd, Atlanta, GA 30342

Inman Park Restaurant Week is in its sixth consecutive year and includes 13 of the top restaurants in the Inman Park neighborhood.  For more information, please visit the website at  www.inmanparkrestaurantweek.com.

Inman Park is in the middle of a regentrification with over six hundred new apartments being built on North Highland and Krog Street.  It is part of the Atlanta Police Departments zone six which the Atlanta Police now call the "New Entertainment Zone" with over 380 liquor licenses in place.  Inman Park is Atlanta's first planned residential suburb and also Atlanta's first electric trolley neighborhood. Created at the cusp of the twentieth century, this ideal Victorian neighborhood - curved streets, generous residential lots, and verdant parks - was built upon the wrecked land of Atlanta's Civil War battlefield, two miles east of downtown Atlanta. Inman Park was the brainchild of a renaissance thinker named Joel Hurt (1850-1926), who modeled the neighborhood after other trolley neighborhoods he had seen throughout the United States.
