Seed Kitchen and Bar Provides A Playful Approach to World Class Dining

By Elisha Neubauer

At Seed Kitchen and Bar, they're taking a playful approach to the typical cuisine of the US and offering it in an environment that is as casual as it is stylish. Located in an emerging East Cobb neighborhood, the unique eatery has a focus on 'chef-driven' specialties, giving each dish an interesting twist that you won't find elsewhere.

"We consider 'playful' to be 'chef-driven,' meaning the chef really has the ability to do whatever they want without being restricted to any one type of cuisine or region," says Jason Raymond, Director of Operations at Seed Kitchen and Bar. "The menu features light influences from all over the world- including Thai, Spanish, German et cetera, made into what we think is a more modern American idea of food."

They present a seasonal menu, which is reflective of the ingredients and hard work put forth by local farmers and artisans. "It's in combination with an uncompromising pursuit of quality, all beautifully presented," Raymond states. "The atmosphere is casual as we see ourselves to be a neighborhood restaurant that will exceed your expectations from start to finish, leaving you with no choice but to tell your friends." He adds, "The goal is to make our guests into raving fans of our brand."

Seed Kitchen and Bar was launched out of necessity. "It was clear that there weren't a lot of good upscale dining experiences here," Raymond explains. "But there was clearly a market for it." He continues, saying, "My goal was to give a world-class dining experience to East Cobb." Raymond tells us that they aimed to create a casual environment while providing a finer dining experience, all rolled into one.

"To say we take both food and service seriously would be a huge understatement, and I think our relentless pursuit of that is what separates us from the pack," he says. "Caring is the key and if we care more than our competitors, our guests will notice and come back again and again after telling their friends."

If you're a first timer to the Seed Kitchen and Bar, Raymond has some recommendations for you- based, of course, on the most popular selections she notices guests favor. These include Sweet Potato Ravioli, Blue Cod with Brussels Sprouts and Cauliflower, and Chicken Schnitzel (Alton Brown's Favorite). The establishment's White Corn Grit Fritters actually won Taste of Marietta, their Pimento Cheese Crostini won the Taste of Atlanta, and the Chocolate Peanut Butter Parfait won Best Dessert Atlanta, making them all good choices for any guest to sample.

"You wouldn't expect a world-class dining experience in a strip mall in Marietta," Raymond proudly states. "We wanted to provide that in-town, midtown dining experience in Marietta."
