A New Era for the Old Vinings Inn

Old is new at the Old Vinings Inn. A longtime landmark on Paces Mill Road, the restaurant is beginning a new era, with new management and a new executive chef.

Old Vinings InnIt’s an evolution, not a revolution, according to new owner Lee Schulman. Since the transition in mid April the Old Vinings Inn hasn’t missed a beat, offering simple yet satisfying upscale southern cuisine.

Though Executive Chef Don Diem has added his touch to the menu, longtime diners will still recognize the Old Vinings Inn. At the same time, it gives new diners a reason to choose it for a special night out.

The Old Vinings Inn is the total package — a charming setting in a historic building, friendly and attentive staff, and delicious southern food. Even the yeast rolls are tasty. Topped with melted honey butter, you’ll have a tough time eating just one.

charcuterie plateIn addition to wines offered by the glass and bottle, Old Vinings Inn has a tempting selection of cocktails. Try the Old Vinings Inn Plantation Punch, made with St. Germain, Campari, champagne and fresh grapefruit juice. Or try the Chattahoochee, made with Jim Beam, St. Germain, ginger beer, lemon juice and bitters.

To start, try the Charcuterie Plate. It comes with a selection of house pickled vegetables, salumi, cheese, flatbread and a generous serving of Chef Diem’s pimento cheese, a real guilty pleasure.

gulf coast oystersNot to be missed are the Blue Corn Crusted Gulf Coast Oysters. Big and juicy, they’re perfectly cooked and bursting with flavor.

For the main course, try the Pecan Mountain Trout. The pecans add a wonderful flavor and texture to the fish. The Pan Seared Lamb Lollipops offer a touch of sweet with savory. They’re served with a wild mushroom and leek farmhouse bread pudding.

If you want to stay more traditional, go for the Buttermilk Fried Chicken or the Shrimp & Grits.

If you have room for dessert try the Farmhouse Peach Pie, which comes with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.

The night doesn’t have to end when you get the check. Head upstairs to the cozy Attic Bar for a digestif. There’s live music every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night starting at 9pm.
