CONNECTED TO EXCEPTIONAL

For years we dreamed of our own distinctive restaurant, one that was about great food and great people in equal measure. In 1993, we opened South City Kitchen in Midtown Atlanta, celebrating Southern cuisine and bringing a new focus to the city’s food scene. Our discoveries confirmed the significance of delivering meaningful, memorable experiences to our guests through connected service. We found this to be true no matter what kind of cuisine or concept.

A quarter of a century later, it is more important than ever to follow this fundamental recipe for success to raise the bar even higher for our city’s esteemed dining scene.
