At Founders Restaurant and Bar, named for Senoia's founding family and operated by their descendants, diners sit amid 1900s décor and peruse a menu that mixes classic Southern cuisine and modern culinary flair. Diners may feel they've come unstuck in time as they taste hot pimiento-cheese dip (an $8 value) under the soft light of antique chandeliers, yet also spot temporal anomalies such as the modern calamari with apricot-chili sauce and chipotle aioli (a $10 value) or their great-grandfather playing basketball in wooden clogs. Dig into sumptuous entrees such as the seared diver scallops with polenta cake and an apple-brandy cream sauce (a $21 value) or a tantalizingly rich roasted chicken stuffed with goat cheese and served with spiced raspberry jam, green beans, and baby carrots (an $18 value). As a stately nonagenarian Brunswick bar looks on with approval, knives and forks can dig into the lump crab cake, a dijon and chive cake served with cauliflower mash, sauteed asparagus, and whole grain Dijon cream (a $24 value).
