Dining the Way the South Intended in Midtown
In the heart of Atlanta lies an historic bungalow nestled among the city’s modern skyscrapers—South City Kitchen Midtown—a beloved restaurant that has enjoyed over two decades of serving Southern classics made to perfection for the traditionalist and contemporary interpretations for the adventurer.
See happy guests sharing and passing our world famous fried chicken and she-crab soup around the table; an interior that is sleek and modern yet invites you to sit a while; and neighborhood locals, world-traveled visitors, and the occasional celebrity taking it all in.
Hear a unique social buzz: the liveliness of an open kitchen, the clink of glasses celebrating a successful business deal, the hum of the city streets outside the patio, couples enjoying a romantic night on the town, and the laughter of good friends.
Take in the unmistakable smells of sizzling thick-cut bacon, house-cured meats fresh from the smoker, tangy Southern BBQ, and garlicky collard greens.
Taste our famous fried green tomatoes bursting with melted goat cheese; perfectly prepared shrimp and grits; locally sourced seasonal sweet corn and fresh Georgia peaches; warm cornbread and flaky biscuits; and home-style pies and decadent banana pudding.
You’ll feel how this is where down home meets up town for an unforgettable lunch, brunch, or dinner served with true Southern hospitality from the friendliest and most knowledgeable staff in the city.
The New York Times said “If this is the direction Southern cooking is taking, it’s headed in the right direction.” Plus, USAToday named our fried chicken among the South’s very best! Our nationally recognized food, wine list and service come together seamlessly for weekday lunch, weekend brunch, nightly dinner and group and private dining. Street parking is available.
The restaurant is conveniently located just steps from High Museum, Woodruff Arts Center, The Fox Theatre and many other local attractions, making it the perfect spot for a quick bite before or after the show. So welcome—your table is ready and waiting!
