If there is a place in Atlanta that serves everything—it would definitely be Twisted Soul Cookhouse & Pours. Seafood, steaks, pork chops, burgers, wings; you name it, they serve it. The house motto is “good simple food,” but that may be an understatement because chef and owner Deborah VanTrece really delivers. Though she has gone on to open another restaurant in the past year called Oreatha’s At The Point, Twisted Soul remains her signature spot for dishes like fried green tomatoes, southern-marinated fried chicken, collard greens, and pigeon pea cornbread dressing.
You’ll find plenty to love at Twisted Soul Cookhouse & Pours, a West Midtown eatery that specializes in simple, soulful dishes. A straight-forward dinner menu finds mouth-watering Southern staples, including Fried Green Tomatoes (generously topped with candied bacon, white Alabama BBQ sauce, and tomato caviar) and Southern Marinated Fried Chicken. And be extra sure to save room for dessert. This menu features a tantalizing trio of options that include Creme Brulee Cheesecake, Banoffee Cream Pudding, and Bourbon Peach Cobbler.
Chef Deborah VanTrece has a way of making produce shine and giving southern classics an update. At brunch you’ll find treats like avocado toast with sun-dried tomatoes, shaved watermelon radish, and goat cheese and sandwiches like harissa grilled chicken with cranberry mint relish, arugula, and a buttery brioche. There are also house specialties like sweet potato French toast with apple foster creme and fried chicken with vanilla bean waffles.
