So, I've decided to start a new feature on my blog...
Yep, you probably all knew deep down that I'd eventually get there.
As self proclaimed "foodies", we eat out quite a bit (when I'm not cooking myself).
And I am always snapping pictures, so why not share them with y'all?!?
Ya know, just in case you ever come to Atlanta or Savannah or anywhere I decide to feature.
Today, we're starting with my personal + absolute favorite, JCT Kitchen.
This restaurant is our Saturday lunch go-to... and more importantly, my Mountain Man + I have officially booked our wedding date, which will be hosted at JCT! Yep, that's how deep our love runs. We are so excited to work with the restaurant team and have already gone as far to request a custom menu featuring our favorite dishes as entree options. So far, they have been fabulous and I can't wait to see how it comes together over the next year! Anyhoo... back to their food. They are a "farm-to-table-esque" restaurant with a modern southern menu. I know I know, their menu is everything that I strive to be as a food blogger, and they give me so much inspiration!! Here are some pictures of their decor...
|They are very country-chic... I love it.|
|Chopped wood for their wood-fired grill.|
|Here are the JCT Fried Chicken Skins with House Hot Sauce and Apple-Bacon Hushpuppies |
with Maple-Bourbon Gastrique. The chicken skins are to-die-for.
|Fried Chicken Skins... I recreated this dish on my blog in June... make them now!|
|Here are those crazy apple hushpuppies... they were perfectly glazed without being soggy.|
|"Pimento Cheese Fry Bread"... this is so utterly decadent. Imagine brioche bread, cut into slices,|
dipped into a batter, deep fried, sprinkled with Fleur de Sel, and served with a big pile of pimento
cheese and pickled veggies.
|Summer Appetizer Special: Fried Green Tomatoes with house-made ricotta cheese, candied bacon,|
fresh basil, some dill, and lemon. Unequivocally divine, I wish these were on the menu all year.
|Angry Mussels Part One|
|Angry Mussels Part Two|
|JCT's Famous Fried Chicken with Mac n' Cheese & Green Beans|
|Fried Chicken Sandwich on Brioche Roll with house made pickles, |
creamy coleslaw, and jalapeno mayo.
|A shot of the Truffle-Parmesan Fries with my Fried Chicken Sandwich|
|Fried Oyster Po'boy wit hot sauce-bacon mayo, chopped lettuce, and spicy pickles|
|The All-Too-Famous Lobster Roll (only served on Friday's & Saturday's) with griddled|
soft roll, sweet & sour apple slaw, and parmesan-truffle fries.
|Fried Chicken + Brussels Sprouts|
|Fried Blueberry Hand Pies with Malted Vanilla Milkshake|
|You gotta dip the hand pies into the milkshake, y'all.|
|And last, but not least, their birthday cake milkshake. Yum Yum Yum.|
