Local ingredients infiltrate a menu of inventive, from-scratch entrees at The Porch at Collier, a violet-drenched eatery that Thrillist Atlanta deems “unpretentious and nostalgic.” Starters slide onto tables, kicking off feasts and competitive-eating portions of family reunions with noshes such as the twice-baked goat-cheese soufflé, served with red- and gold-beet salad, walnuts, and greens. House-smoked bacon, mushrooms, red peppers, and green onions balance atop the shrimp and cheese grits, slathered in Red Eye gravy. Forks plunge through a pool of melted blue cheese and red-wine sauce to impale the rib-eye steak, a time-tested cut hearty enough to sate appetites accrued while moving bales of apple pies. Patrons hasten courses down cuisine canals with sips of house wine, well cocktails, or one of an arsenal of draft brews, which include Terrapin Hopsecutioner IPA and Stone Ruination.
Disguised by a bucolic brick exterior, The Porch at Collier’s opulent insides stretch across hardwood floors framed by gauzy purple and white curtains. Floral centerpieces anchor wooden tables indoors, and a covered porch fills with the happy chatter of customers imbibing alfresco or waiting patiently for the leaves to change. Page through menus filled with recycled-paper pages atop leather couches in a chic lounge area or beside a softly lit bar beneath exposed-brick walls freckled with artwork.
