King + Duke Birthday Dinner

img_5083

My ATL girls and I celebrated our friend Sam’s birthday at King + Duke recommended by Hoor. This literary themed restaurant has a bookshelf full with books, complete with a ladder in the entrance. The restaurant exudes a warm ambience with kerose lit tiny lamps creating a cozy atmosphere. Once seated, our beautiful hostess served us with warm bread and whipped butter.

The menu is seasonal and many delicious entrees to choose from. We ordered the following from the menu:

GEORGIA KALE SALAD, peppercorn dressing, walnuts, dates, aged gouda …

GRILLED SWORDFISH, toasted pecans, endive, brown butter vinaigrette …

GULF BLACK GROUPER, celery root, gribiche, calabrian chilis …

WHOLE ROASTED CAULIFLOWER, chimichurri, roasted local vegetables…

“PUNCHED” POTATOES, zhoug aioli, feta …

CRISPY BRUSSELS SPROUTS, chiles, soy, mint+thai basil …

BANANA WALNUT CAKE, maple, caramel, chantilly cream …

STICKY TOFFEE PUDDING, smoked marshmallow anglaise …

Personally, I wasn’t too fond of the Sticky Toffee pudding but my friends raved about it. I think I’m just not the pudding type.

Overall, I really enjoyed the food and ambience at King + Duke. Definitely worth a trip with your friends or even date night!
