Dine Like a Local Stillhouse: Culinary Game Changer By Mary Welch If you think Atlanta has enough hamburger places – well, think again. …
Using all of the moonshines available in Georgia, Stillhouse derives its name from its in-house cocktail program where moonshine is employed as the base ingredient to create classic cocktails. The carefully crafted cocktail menu is complemented by the ultimate burger experience with locally sourced ingredients and inspired toppings.
Stillhouse offers a modern twist on burgers that set the standard and go to the extreme to taste the best. Applying regionally sourced products, baking cheeses onto buns and using house made condiments make the burgers stand out. Craft burgers selections include premium varieties of grass fed beef, mustard and Memphis pork, Coca-Cola teriyaki moonshine marinated chicken, seared turkey, fresh ground duck with house made confit, lump crabcakes, Apalachicola fried oysters and remarkable vegetarian options such as the Black eyed pea burger. Additional menu items include small plates, salads and shared sides consisting of deviled eggs, moonshine mussels, fried oysters, collard greens, spicy macaroni & cheese, fried green tomatoes, peanut butter hummus and more. Guests can dine inside, on the terrace or takeaway until late Monday through Saturday from 5pm until 1:30am.
At Stillhouse, the moonshine cocktail program is served in a variety of ways to enjoy the distilled sensation. Using six charred oak barrels prominently featured on the back bar, the month aged spirits are second to none. Served straight or in a cocktail, the moonshine infusions combine regional ingredients such as Vidalia onions, Georgia peaches, watermelon, mint and more so flavors are balanced and shine. Guests may also choose to smoke their spirit or cocktail with fresh apple, cherry, pecan, and maple wood chips. Stimulating garnishes including local berries, freshly squeezed juices, bitters and house made syrups ensure smooth, flavorsome cocktails. Additional bar options include a small but carefully selected list that features beer staples and regional microbrews, top wine sellers and an American craft selection of liquors such as the award-winning Boyd & Blair Vodka.
As guests enter Stillhouse, they will notice the natural materials, black and white prints of stills, bootleggers, and moonshiners. Adjacent to the back bar are two lit chalk board menus and daily specials. The space is warmed up with custom made Edison pendant lights and includes booths and whiskey barrel tables with custom tops. The ceiling has antiqued copper drop tiles alluding to the stills used to create this storied spirit. Featuring natural stone floors, a large wooden beam back bar and hammered copper accents on the bar, Stillhouse allows Buckhead’s elite an evening out without the pretentiousness.
