Magnum Restaurant & Bar Group has done it again, and this time they have really outdone themselves! The super creative owners of The Graveyard Tavern in East Atlanta Village have launched a new restaurant called The Barrelhouse Tavern! Located right next to Georgia Tech , this edgy tavern provides the perfect ambiance for any lunch of dinner date! When my guest and I arrived for our dinner reservation we were immediately approached by a helpful and attentive server. Customer service is so important to me, and I really think The Barrelhouse Tavern has done a great job in training their staff. After reviewing the menu we decided to sample the Tuna Crudo Involtini ($10.00) appetizer. This tasty dish was made of very thinly sliced tuna wrapped around crab meat and sprinkled with fresh cilantro and almonds. If you are looking for a tasty, tangy, cool treat that leaves you feeling light and refreshed this is probably your best bet! I was pleased to see that The Barrelhouse Tavern offers a fabulous drink menu complete with an assortment of bottled beers and specialty cocktails. My guest and I sampled the Lemon Drop Martini and the Pomegranate Saki. I was really surprised at how refreshing and fruity the Pomegranate Saki was! I will definitely be ordering this the next time I stop by The Barrelhouse. In addition, for all of our beer enthusiasts The Barrelhouse Tavern has over ninety-nine bottles of beer behind the bar! On top of the bar you can find a rustic beer tap that showcases four different beers per week. For our main entrees, my guest ordered the Roasted Half Chicken ($14.00) complemented by bacon braised collard greens and sour green tomato jam with red mule polenta, while I chose the Braised Pork Belly (17.00). My dish was super tasty and topped with seared pork loin, roasted peaches, and a green onion vinaigrette. What I found to be especially unique about the pork belly entrée was that it was served alongside a scrumptious boiled peanut mash (think mashed potatoes, but with peanuts). I know that sounds a little weird but the flavors from the mash fuse perfectly with the juicy pork. For dessert my guest and I shared the Butterscotch Pudding Tart ($6.00) which is a brown sugar streusel topped with vanilla chantilly ( a type of French cream) and Butterfinger crumbles. The food at The Barrelhouse Tavern is absolutely delicious but the best part of this restaurant is the ambiance and exceptional customer service. The next time you are in the GA Tech area I suggest you stop by The Barrelhouse Tavern!
Until Next Time....Eat Your ♥ Out!
