Fodor's Expert Review Fortify Kitchen & Bar

$$$ Clayton American
At one of Clayton's designated "farm-to-table" restaurants, chef Jamie Allred's updated Southern cuisine highlights the region's best produce, meats, and spirits in a relaxed, down-to-earth environment. With exposed brick walls and a small wooden bar you'll want to huddle around, Fortify is simply about good food, fun cocktails, and a wine list that includes a few local selections. Menu favorites include the Grit Bowl with local grits, shrimp, sausage, and fried chicken; the Georgia pecan-crusted Carolina mountain rainbow trout; fried green tomatoes; and the Fortified Salad with local roasted beets. Reservations are a must in the fall when the mountains are packed with leaf lookers.
