It had been awhile since I had seen my friend Hannah, so we decided to catch up over drinks and dinner. I love Argosy, it's probably my favorite bar in town. It is so beautiful on the inside with dark heavy wood, soft lighting and a tall, vast ceiling. It is a big space and seems to always have a crowd of people. Everything I have ordered or tasted here has been excellent, food and drinks included.
I ordered the Trio of Beets and it was delicious. It had roasted beets, pickled raw beets, and beet chips served on greens with whipped local yogurt and topped with a lemon thyme vinaigrette. I would definitely order that again.
Hannah ordered the Pig 'n' Grits. The grits had a nice rich, creamy flavor and the pork nice and smoky. The apple jalapeno fennel coleslaw was delicious too!
The Roasted Chicken is my go to entree at The Argosy. The Springer Mountain Chicken is super tender and the gravy full of flavor. The sweet roasted carrots are a nice balance with the salty gravy. This dish is so homey and just feeds the soul. It's amazing how something so simple can carry so much flavor.
If I could have one spot in Atlanta to be my neighborhood bar, Argosy would be the one. It is a great spot to have some drinks, eat some food in a great atmosphere. Plus, the price point makes this restaurant a great value.
Price Range - $12 Pig 'n' Grits - $19 Cowgirl Ribeye
Tip - Friday and Saturdays pack out, so get there early otherwise plan on waiting
