Hugh Acheson is dazzling Atlantans once again, with Achie’s located in the Battery at Suntrust Park.
There are a dizzying number of restaurants inside Suntrust Park. I’ve been trying to make my way through them, but haven’t been able to hit up some of the ones I’ve wanted to try just yet. And the list keeps growing. And now, the Omni Hotel is open at The Battery.
Naturally, with all the heavy hitters already having invaded the restaurant scene they needed a top notch chef to helm the hotel restaurant. And what a good choice they made with James Beard Foundation award-winning chef and author Hugh Acheson.
Achie’s serves southern-inspired fare with quality-sourced ingredients. The restaurant is open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. At breakfast, I’d opt for their Sweet Georgia Ice cream. Wait – it’s healthier than it sounds. It’s made with creamed grits, figs and brown sugar. Of course there are more traditional options like the French Omelette or chicken biscuit. Don’t miss out on their power juices.
At lunch, I’d start with the Flounder Tartare (actually it’s on the dinner menu too). It gets pricey at dinner with meat / fish entrees around the $30 and above price point. But it’s worth it for a splurge. I love how the cocktails at Achie’s even have their own healthy injection with fruit flavors. I’m looking forward to trying a Migration Pattern with vodka, spiced pear, lemon, ginger beer and tart cherry.
