It goes without saying that a restaurant named Farm 255 is focused on farm-to-table cuisine. But for 2012 Atlanta Rising Star Sustainability Chef Whitney Otawka, farm-to-table is more than “best practice,” and her soulful cooking at one of Athen’s best restaurants expands the realm of simple farm fresh. Using goods from partner farm Moonshine Meats, along with her self-foraged and market finds, Otawka creates a seasonal, inspirational menu. And the restaurant’s warm, sunny dining room fits in perfectly with the farm cuisine. Fresh flowers greet each table, floor-to-ceiling windows let in the sunlight, and vintage wooden tables line the room. It’s the lovely setting needed to dig into Otawka’s feast.
