Todd Richards (above) — the chef at One Flew South in Hartsfield-Jackson airport — is working on a new project in Decatur’s Oakhurst neighborhood to be called Harmony Park Canteen. The concept? Small plates, inexpensive large plates and a local neighborhood garden to supply vegetables.
The menu, which Richards has posted on his blog, promises all kinds of creative-yet-homey-if-occasionally-challenging Southern-themed nibbles (you know the genre, right?) such as crispy chicken livers, slab bacon sliders, fried okra, pigs’ trotters and the aforementioned chitlins served with the aforementioned offal gilders.
No word on when we can expect the restaurant to open.
It well nigh sucks that the only place for Atlantans to sample Richards’ food is on the E Concourse at the airport, because he was a seriously big deal in Louisville before moving to Atlanta.
