“charming modern Southern cuisine”
Nestled into the alluring landscape of Atlanta's historic Inman Park, Wisteria has been serving up modern Southern cuisine and charm since 2001. One of the first in Atlanta to reinterpret the flavors and techniques of traditional Southern cooking, chef-owner Jason Hill offers a menu that conjures memories of Sunday suppers of fried chicken and front porch potables while creating a fresh legacy of his own. Hill and executive chef Walker Brown pay homage to the seasons, changing the menu to suit the harvest, and gathering greens, cheeses, beef and fresh fish from as many local, regional sources they can find, from Georgia to North Carolina. Both chefs have worked for many years building relationships with local farmers and purveyors. Wisteria's menu offers traditionally Southern eats, but from the very beginning Hill found himself reinventing the types of foods he grew up with to suit the needs of his family and friends. "I wanted to make food the people I love would love to eat," he says of Wisteria's early menu. His signature black-eyed pea hummus with sweet potato chips was born from the need to satisfy modern cravings while remaining within the realm of Southern ingredients and food values. Entrees of pan-seared pork belly with poached pear, dried cherries, balsamic-candied walnuts and a port wine-and-tupelo honey reduction are testament to tradition, yet offer a new angle, and the kitchen's pimento cheese deviled eggs with pickled okra and spiced pecans combine down-and-dirty Southern flavors with the up-turned pinky of refinement.
