This weekend I had the chance to visit Atlanta’s newest craft restaurant Seven Lamps, located right across from Lenox Mall. Since its opening last month I’ve heard a lot of great things and I couldn’t wait to try it. Seven Lamps invited me and a friend to dinner this weekend to experience their menu.
The restaurant is just what Buckhead needed. The whole concept behind the restaurant is to share. The space is filled with family style tables and a list of great small plates and appetizers. The intimate environment is perfect for a girls night out or a double date. The menu focuses on sharing and the portion sizes for small plates aren’t shy. The chef hand makes the pastas, sandwiches, and uses all fresh ingredients.
We started off by sharing four of their small plates while enjoying a few drinks.
For small plates and appetizers, we shared the smoked ruby beets, the savory kale crepes, amazing buttered lobster buns, and a appetizer sized pasta. The crepes were my favorite dish of the evening, I could really have just ordered those along with a glass of wine.
During dinner the chef served everyone in the restaurant Hammock Hollow Lettuces, a plate filled with breakfast radish, pickled onions, chives, and a honey vinaigrette.
I wasn’t feeling well that night so instead of ordering a cocktail I opted to try one of their housemade sodas. I got the tropical winter: a fruity drink with juniper, kiwi, pineapple, and agave nectar. Which was very delicious! My friend ordered a red derby cocktail which is made with burboun, blood orange, savannah bee honey, and tarragon. In addition to their cocktail menu, they also have a wine list.
By the time it came to order and entree we were stuffed, but we decided to try their wood roasted pork chop with topped with brussel sprouts. I’m not usually a pork eater but this was one of the best pork chops I’ve had in a while. The chop is seared to perfection and topped with pancetta and a dried fruit jus.
I’m definitely making a trip back to Seven Lamps in the near future try a few items on their dessert and lunch menu. The restaurant has a dessert cocktail called the Crunch Punch, an infused whiskey drink made with the new peanut butter crunch cereal that I am dying to try.
The next time you are in Atlanta, make sure to stop by Seven Lamps to experience their menu. Check out photos from my evening below.
