There are endless restaurants in Atlanta specializing in farm-to-table, meat-and-three, soul food and other variations on Southern fare. A homespun, unpretentious entry in those ranks is Southern Bistro, a comfort-food centric spot from husband and wife Nancy and Colman Goodrich who do especially well with down-home appetizers with a Southern flair like boiled peanut hummus, a solid pimento cheese served with toast points, ham and collard green egg rolls and, of course, the in-house variation on fried green tomatoes served with goat cheese and sweet pepper jelly.
