Foodie Frenzy #24 – One Eared Stag
For our next lunch date, I wanted to find a restaurant in the Inman Park/Old Fourth Ward/Krog Street area. We were somewhat limited by restaurants that serve lunch, however there were quite a few to choose from. I ultimately chose One Eared Stag because they featured a unique gluten-free fried chicken. We have been so spoiled by our weather lately and we chose one of those perfect days. It was fun to be in the quaint in-town neighborhood where OES is located. A bonus was the on street parking without meters. When we walked in, the tasteful warehouse style of the restaurant had a good vibe. It was a bit disappointing to see only one other couple in the restaurant. Our waitress quickly arrived and after inquiring, she made suggestions about what to order. She recommended the celery salad ($11) that in a million years, neither of us would have ordered. It was unique, tasty and refreshing. I couldn’t resist ordering the fresh oysters and they were delicious at $2.75 a pop. I ordered the rice with crab ($12) and it was ok. It was a small portion and rather bland. Audra ordered the gluten-free fried chicken sandwich ($14) that was ok also, but not as good as her mom, June, can whip up. For a $50.76 meal, we expected quite a bit more. Fortunately, in Atlanta, we have a plethora of restaurants to choose from, so OK is not what I would recommend. What we did love was Jeni’s ice cream nearby in the Krog Street market area. Until the Stag gets another Ear, I won’t make plans to go back.
I would love your suggestions of where we should try next!
Until we eat again,
