Thanks to an influx of new businesses, Westview keeps being put back on the map. Eater Atlanta just released “Where to Eat and Drink in Castleberry Hill, West End, and Westview,” and KarbonStar Vitality, Greens & Gravy, and D Cafe made it on the list of places to go.
It should be noted that Greens & Gravy has been given several nods as of lately, such as being picked as Eater Atlanta’s #9 spot of “Atlanta’s Hottest New Brunches, September 2017,” Creative Loafing’s “First Look: Greens and Gravy,” and the AJC’s “This local spot is serving up some seriously good, honey-dripping fried chicken with biscuits.“
Online Instagram celebrity chef Darius Williams already created a media buzz prior to opening his restaurant Greens & Gravy:
Neighborhood groups were equally abuzz as online reservations for the soft opening disappeared within minutes and Williams indicating that the five sold out evenings equated to 814 reservations.
The buzz did not let down. The food was on par. The deviled eggs appeared to be a social media favorite, as did the mac and cheese. The restaurant was well staffed, and the staff was well trained. Perhaps the only thing missing was the ability to pair the delicious dishes with some adult beverages; however, it is our understanding that this will be added at some point.
Greens & Gravy will officially open for brunch on Saturday, June 17, 2017.
Development in Westview, and southwest Atlanta, is in full swing. Westview residents have been particularly excited about the re-opening of D Cafe a few weeks ago, giving them and visitors alike that “third place” to hang out and enjoy a meal while being able to meet familiar, friendly faces.
Additionally in the works is celebrity chef Darius Williams’ first restaurant, Greens & Gravy, at 1540 Ralph David Abernathy Blvd. Darius has released a sneak peak of the menu, featuring mouth-watering dishes like “Skillet Butter Pecan Cornbread with Whipped Honey Butter,” “Creamed Corn Bisque with Fried Lobster & Chive Oil” and “Creamy Collard Green Lasagna.” An opening date has not been determined, but is anticipated to happen in the next several weeks.
Meanwhile, Stream Realty and its Atlanta BeltLine-adjacent Lee + White development just down the road in neighboring West End continues to make headlines with its newest tenants. This time, the headlines are about a new distillery being added to the roster – ASW Distillery. Like Monday Night Brewing and Wild Heaven Beer, ASW Distillery will be opening up a second location at the LEE + White development called the “ASW Rickhouse.”
