Best Southern Gastro Pub in Georgia: Re-cess of Gainesville

A short walk from the square of downtown Gainesville leads you to a modest yellow sign and the entryway to Re-cess Southern Gastro Pub, the only one of its kind in the state.

Within the walls of this 115 year old building, owner Chris Richardson and his crew have developed a menu that recreates your classic southern favorites like youโ€™ve never experienced them before, bringing out new flavors with the perfect blends of their homemade sauces and perfectly unexpected ingredient pairings. Constantly adding new gourmet twists to their menuโ€™s dishes, Re-cess still sticks to the iconic fried traditions that makes southern food, wellโ€ฆ.southern. Their fried green beans, fried pickles, and fried green tomatoes are a true testament to their mastery in frying. Every dish is full flavored and prepared in a way that allows the fried crunch to co-exist with the natural ingredient that it encases. In addition to adding flare to classic southern cuisine, Re-cess puts a southern twist on dishes as varied as ahi tuna and gourmet flat breads. In order to experience these creative spins on your favorite southern dishes, plan a trip to Re-cess. ย The drive north of Atlanta to Gainesville is worth the historical atmosphere and gourmet southern cuisine that Re-cess Southern Gastro Pub has to offer. Be sure to check them out on Fridays to enjoy live music in โ€œthe stables,โ€ too!
