The Pinewood Tippling Room opens at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the old Cakes & Ale location at 254 W. Ponce de Leon Ave.
The "Southern style gastropub" will carry variations on classics such as green tomatoes, pork belly, sweet potatoes and a fried bologna sandwich, according to the What Now Atlanta website.
One of the signature cocktails is the "Decatur Discretionary," which is made of mellow corn bonded corn whiskey, bianco, luxardo maraschino, PWTR No. 3 orange bitters, orange twist and gomme syrup. Price: ten bucks.
The Pinewood Tippling Room says this on the restaurant website:
The Pinewood Tippling Room is neighborhood bar that serves extraordinary cocktails and reinterpreted regional fare in downtown Decatur, Georgia.
We appreciate equally the high-class and the home-spun, and we think a neighborhood hangout ought to be both. That’s why our menu features elegantly inventive dishes alongside old-school southern comfort foods, all of them made from locally sourced ingredients.
Julia Leroy is the consulting chef on the menu, which can be found at the restaurant website.
She was also named the chef de cuisine for the new Watershed restaurant opening in Buckhead.
In a recent interview with Atlanta magazine, she said she's not making any changes in the Watershed fried chicken recipe.
