Hey there Foodies! It has been a long while since my last time in Atlanta and I was hoping we could have a nice pre-holiday dinner at one of Atlanta's favorite dining spots...Abbatoir! A locally sourced restaurant in an old meat packing warehouse, what more could a foodie ask for? Abbatoir is the latest dining venture by chefs/owners Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison with partner and Executive Chef Joshua Hopkins, Abattoir opened on May 21, 2009. French for “slaughterhouse,” Abattoir is an American chophouse specializing in the use of locally-raised proteins to produce high-quality, affordable food. Offering freshly butchered whole fowl, fish, beef, pork and other game served in a variety of ways, the menu is based around “whole animal cuisine,” a term referring to the use of every functional piece of the animal. Named 2009 Restaurant of the Year by Atlanta Magazine, this “meatcentric” concept furthers the commitment to using local ingredients to create one-of-a-kind culinary experiences. Offering freshly-butchered whole fowl, fish, beef, pork and other game served in a variety of ways, the menu is based around “whole animal cuisine,” a term referring to the use of every functional piece of the animal. In order to avoid wasting any part, Abattoir features dishes redolent of head cheese, innards, feet and tongue.
