We trekked to 2007 Atlanta Rising Star Hugh Acheson at his breakout restaurant Five & Ten nearly six years ago, and we’ve been charmed with Athens and Acheson ever since. Although Acheson has since expanded his empire to include The National, Gosford Wine, and Empire State South, and garnered some national media attention along the way, he’s still our star. And it’s at his Athens home base where Acheson really shines, offering a menu based on local farmers’ produce, while creating a down-to-earth atmosphere that lets diners settle in for the true Acheson experience—clean, bold flavors.
