Fodor's Review

Named for Georgia's famous sweet onion, this small bistro in the middle of town brings creative regional American cooking to the High Country. Large paintings dominate the tiny dining area, but it's the food, much of it from local organic farms, that really stands out. For dinner, try the chicken and dumplings with sweet gnocchi, the spinach porcini ravioli, or the sesame-coriander tuna. Lunch on the lighter side offers several interesting salads along with hearty dishes like fried chicken and waffles with collards on the side. Of course, you must try the Vidalia onion rings. There's sidewalk seating, also, and a full bar, including an interesting wine list and an array of craft beers.
