Nothing will take you back to your childhood like having a good old southern comfort meal. Of course we are talking about the food from your grandmother's kitchen not the sweet liquor that made you sick that one Saturday night in High School. Below are the top five restaurant dishes in Atlanta to go and get your southern comfort food fix.
Southern Fried Chicken Parm
Coming in at number one is BoccaLupo not because their Italian menu screams southern comfort but because their southern fried chicken parm is so good that it would be an insult to have it any other place. The acidity from the tomato, mixed with the slight bitterness from the collards, the melted cheese, and cream all combine to tingle your taste buds to its maximum. Boccalupoatl.com
Nothing says home like breakfast all day long. Buttermilk is famous for its southern comfort foods, especially the chicken biscuit. Think of the best bite of fried chicken you have ever had, cover it with red pepper jelly and sandwich it between a homemade biscuit. It just melts in your mouth. The only downfall is that the chicken biscuits are available only on weekends, so get em while there hot. Buttermilk kitchen.com
