Let me start by saying, Rich might need to change the name to Great O’ Great! Last Saturday night I stopped by and was wonderfully impressed with all the southern culinary choices Rich had to offer. As I savored the rich Gumbo, I was quickly transported back in time to Mrs. Barnett’s kitchen in Atlanta (I can still see her smiling face as she passed over a warm bowl made with love), and the crispy fried chicken did not disappoint. I also sampled the fork-tender, melt-in-your-mouth Beef Brisket that was simply outstanding. My only regret was not having another stomach because I really wanted to feast on the Shrimp and Grits.
Note: I have had the pleasure of teaching Culinary Art for nearly 20 years. I have come to quickly pick out the students who cook with love and passion because it always shows in their food. I can clearly see Ate O’ Ate is driven by passion and the food is surrounded with LOVE! Congratulations! You have made another happy customer.
