Atlanta: Pittypat's Porch

This is another restaurant that saw quite a lot of action from the convention attendees mentioned in my entry on the Pacific Rim Bistro. Everywhere I went during the conference, if I mentioned Pittypat's Porch, there was someone within earshot who had also tried it out. And it was certainly worth it for a taste of something southern and out of the ordinary. After getting a wonderful assortment of homemade biscuits and corn bread, I decided to try out Aunt Pittypat's Filet, which is a beef tenderloin wrapped in bacon and served with southern mashed potatoes, complete with a white gravy that had a perfect taste and texture. I cleaned my plate. My dinner companion opted for the pork tenderloin with curried peanut sauce that came with an apple and sweet potato puree. I stole a couple of bites and it was delicious. I also snagged a taste of her georgia peach cobbler in between polishing off my classic pecan pie. Supposedly Pittypat's is named after Scarlett's aunt who always prepared her best recipes and often served them on the porch.

Just a comment from an appreciative stranger.

I ate at Pittypat's Porch in 1973 (I was a mere child! LOL) and still have wonderful memories of the food and service. I'm so glad that the restaurant is still going strong.
