A new Southern favorite

 This past weekend we left the city for a night on the mountaintop at the Red Top Mountain State Park.  On our way we made a detour to Roswell, GA for a meal at Greenwood's on Green St.

It was the best southern food in Georgia.  Maybe anywhere.

I know that's an incredible claim to make but see for yourself...
 half a rotisserie chicken in a thick plum sauce, with cheese grits and mashed potatoes

 honey-glazed carrots, collards, sweet potatoes

 amazing amazing cornbread with sweet butter

 broccoli casserole with crispy onions on top.  THE BEST.

shrimp and grits 

 more collards and black-eyed peas

 blackberry pie

chocolate cream pie

The pie was heart-breakingly/pants-splittenly good, especially after a truly decadent midday meal.  When ordering, be warned that a "slice of pie" really means a solid quarter pie.  

and there was a tree growing through the porch.  What more can you ask for?  Roswell, we'll be back!
