Alison's Dunwoody. A review.

A taste of the south right in Dunwoody! Cozily tucked into the Shops of Dunwoody shopping plaza is this southern themed eatery.  We in the south don't like airs with our food (I like it with other food  but not Southern food) and you will not find them here. 

Bourbon lovers, there is a bourbon tasting cart! 4 selections for $20.  Perfect. 

The menu is, of course, Southern but you will find a wild card here and there like chicken tortilla soup with mozzarella?  I enjoyed the butternut squash soup. Fragrantly spiced with a hint of sweetness. Thick rich and satisfying. A cup was all I needed. 

The table rolls are a bit of heaven on earth, or in Dunwoody as the case may be. Yeast knots with oil and garlic on top along with some parmesan. Not southern but entirely delicious. 

I don't know that I've ever done this but I asked for a custom entree due to the very specific craving I was having and it was accommodated. Had it been busier I never would have asked. Glad I did because it was delicious! Seared salmon with mashed potatoes (excellent homey thick fresh and tasty), creamed corn (more extra thick homey and tasty) and sauteed spinach that was nicely seasoned. 

My dining companion pointed out, as a sweet tea expert, that the iced tea didn't tasted brewed but rather from a mix. My uneducated tea taste buds couldn't tell through the course of 3 refills.  

Friendly attentive service and a belly full of food I was a happy eater by the end of it all.
