This is my second time eating at this Buckhead restaurant. Located in the very nice Intercontinental Hotel, the restaurant is a very unique creation of Oprah's former chef Art Smith. The theme is southern country food and bourbon with a twist.They feature many specialty cured hams, which are all yummy and the choices of bourbon drinks would make Harry Carey blush. The service is very good and the atmosphere "casual sophisticated". Hotel valet parking makes the location an easy drop-in on a busy Buckhead weekday night. This visit I tried the chicken and dumpling soup and the aged NY strip steak w mashed sweet potatoes.We were a party of 8, so the restaurant provided a sampler of deserts, which were just "ok", the caramel salt pretzel pie was the clear favorite of our group. Wine list is good, with the Duckhorn Merlot from Sonoma a good value. All in all, a very nice meal
