Blue Bicycle, The
Atlanta Suburbs/AthensJuly 2008
This family enterprise behind the North Georgia Premium Outlet Mall, by chef/owner Guy Owens and wife Kati, may skimp a bit on atmosphere and creature comforts, but puts the petal to the mettle with the food. Fresh, local ingredients in French/Continental fare (duck breast with brandied cherries, penne in porcini-sage cream sauce) with Southern accents (sautéed Gulf shrimp on a scallion grits cake), at good values (most entrees range from $12-$17). Even better is the long list of Georgia wines, many offered by the bottle, glass and half-glass. 671 Lumpkin Campground Road, Dawsonville. 706-265-2153.
