Meat and Potato Kitchen and Bar Coupons and Deals
Scout Notes:How can you tell that a joint has figured out how to be both legit and shmancy? One noun. Ladder. One adjective. Rolling. That's right, we're talking a slide-along-the-shelves ladder. We can't think of a swankier way to grab those top-shelf libations*. And at Meat and Potato Kitchen and Bar, that's how they get to the goods. They know what's up (ingredients for signature cocktails, to be precise). And so do the folks who've been popping in on the reg. Although the simply decorated, elegant Meat and Potato is still shiny new, they've already built up quite the rep around John's Creek for having upscale, classic twists on steakhouse fare. As owner Khalid explained, "We do things a little differently here." And that's true – except it's not just different, it's better. Their veritable smorgasbord of meats is of the highest caliber (we're talkin' top third tier here, folks). Wet-aged for 21 days, they dry-age for another week. This is the good stuff, as you protein-pros know. It concentrates flavors and ensures that you're presented with tender victuals, without any of that marinade nonsense – just a dash of salt n' pepper, that'll do. Meat and potato connoisseurs will have plenty to peruse, but that's not all this joint offers. Chef Steve makes a mean pulled brisket 'wich, with horseradish cream and cherry peppers on soft, fresh ciabatta. And even their libations are unique takes on classics: like the La Poire Mule. As Khalid explained, "we took a Moscow Mule and taught it a little French." Slake your thirst with this La Poire, ginger syrup, ginger beer and fresh lime juice concoction as you bask in glow of the two behind-the-bar fireplaces. And then there's dessert. The flour-less chocolate cake is a superb choice – wherein they remove flour, and replace it with more chocolate. At least that's how it tastes - a cross between an exceedingly fluffy brownie and a denser, sweeter cake. It's okay, we drooled too. *Unless maybe you trained a tuxedo-wearing monkey to do it? Nah. That'd never happen.
