The Farmhouse at Serenbe: Palmetto

posted on February 3, 2007 at 8:02 am


I had been dying to try the food at Serenbe for quite some time. I decided to enlist a few friends to go with me for Sunday Supper this past weekend. We drove down (about 45 minutes for Downtown Atlanta) around 2 for a 3pm reservation. We reached out destination after a long stretch of country road and it was just as beautiful as I remembered from the Les Dames event. We had brought some Belgian beer along because they have no license. They don’t charge for corkage. The restaurant was small but quaint with a lovely view out onto the adjacent farm. They gave us some homemade cornbread and placed our beer in a ice bucket. There is only one menu and you don’t choose what you get. This Sunday it was fried chicken with sweet potatoes, beets, and collards. The chicken was perfectly cooked and crisp–worth the trip alone. I asked the chef how he prepared it and he said the key was a very hot cast iron skillet. The sides were good but the sweet potato puree was a bit overpowering.The dessert came and it was a meyer lemon and buttermilk pie with pineapple chunks. The crust tasted pre-made and I really could not taste the lemon. I am more of a savory person anyway. The relaxing environment, friends, and chicken were still a joy. I can’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
