Aside from overdosing on pitchers and wings (blame the Falcons), you’ve stayed true to your healthy-eating resolution.
Check your willpower at the door of The Village Tap, where a six-foot Jack Daniel’s statue — a solid indicator of what’s going down inside — welcomes you.
The intimate, warmly lit spot feels like Sunday supper at Meemaw’s house, only with a livelier crowd and a full bar serving cocktails in mason jars. Try the Not Your Daddy’s Old Fashioned or the Dolly Parton, made with apple pie moonshine.
Pass the finger-licking fried chicken, mac ’n’ cheese, pork collard greens, pimiento cheese fritters, and fried sweet potato pie, or make a pit stop for the Meat and Three lunch special, which changes weekly. Family recipes (such as Papaw’s vegetable soup) score big.
The Village Tap, 3247 Roswell Road Northeast, Buckhead (404-565-0765 or facebook.com).
