Happy anniversary South City Kitchen Midtown! This month the sophisticated southern restaurant is celebrating its 20th year.
Since opening on Crescent Avenue in 1993, South City Kitchen Midtown has won numerous awards and continues to be regarded as one of the top dining spots in Atlanta. Located in a refurbished 1920s bungalow, South City Kitchen Midtown is a delicious destination for a number of occasions, from business lunches to romantic dinners, or a relaxing weekend brunch.
Some of Atlanta’s favorite chefs spent time at South City Kitchen Midtown including Jay Swift of 4th & Swift, Todd Mussman of Muss & Turner’s and Ted Lahey of Table & Main. Today it’s Executive Chef Chip Ulbrich who for the past five years has been putting his spin on mouthwatering dishes like buttermilk fried chicken, she-crab soup, shrimp and grits and banana pudding.
“Part of the challenge here is honoring the 20-year history while keeping the cuisine relevant,” said Chef Ulbrich. “Local ingredients, Southern tradition and contemporary techniques help keep us at the forefront of the Atlanta dining scene while consistently exceeding evolving expectations.”
