I had such high expectations for this restaurant because it was a joint venture with the owners of the restaurant in Lawrenceville, GA called Local Republic. The concept of locally sourced ingredients is great and the food was good, but the it lacked something. The atmosphere was not very inviting and the space just seemed too big for the amount of clientele that it was drawing. I was excited when I heard about this restaurant because it wasn't another chain. This is where I would put the Georgia Pine. I would eat here before eating a chain restaurant, but I don't get the urge to make this one of my regular destinations.
