You’ve been open for about a year and a half now, and I think I should be honest with you. No more keeping it inside. The truth is, I just can’t get enough of you. Look, I’m not a professional food writer or restaurant reviewer. No Redneck Ruth Reichl. I’m just a hungry woman with a good palate who strives to eat healthy meals. Yes, I said hungry. I don’t nibble and pick, I eat, as much as my middle-aged metabolism will allow. I know food–food and I go way back–and I love what you are doing with yours.
With Seed’s farm-to-table Modern-American Cuisine and the phenomenal Doug Turbush at the helm, you had me at “Hello, let me tell you about our specials.” Oh Doug, with your years of Buckhead experience, a former executive chef at Nava and Bluepointe, you could have gone anywhere. But, you committed yourself fully to local growers and opened your life-long dream restaurant right here in East Cobb, just down the street from me. Your menu, ever-changing, following the seasons, calls to me. On a recent night out with friends, just look at the gorgeous, insanely delicious food you delivered to our table:
Just HOW am I supposed to control myself? I’m all giddy whenever people even mention plans for dining out, chirping in immediately “Have you been to Seed? You just HAVE to go to Seed!” Seriously, I’m interrupting conversations with people I don’t even know–on the elevator, in the ladies room, with the technician trying to make comforting small-talk during my mammogram. (Yep. I’ll let you sit with that one a minute while you check out the desserts we sampled.)
And, Seed, if this were not enough to send me right over the edge of reason, now you are expanding into the adjacent space with the addition of Stem Wine Bar. In just a few short weeks you’re bringing us a whole new experience, offering a carefully-curated wine list and serving small plates, charcuterie and artisan cheeses to complement your wines. Tastings, wine flights, sommelier-led events–all reverberating with the same style sprung up from Seed. I. CAN. NOT. WAIT.
Make your reservations to enjoy dinner, lunch, or Sunday brunch!
