Restaurant Review – Canoe | Atlanta Eats

Nestled against the Chattahoochee River in Vinings is the legendary Canoe. Its riverside setting is unmatched in Atlanta. While the front of the building doesn’t look like much, when you walk out into the massive garden that leads down to the river, the beauty of the setting is unmatched in Atlanta. But the river views aren’t the only thing that will take your breath away: Chef Carvel Grant Gould has created a menu that can elevate any scenery, even scenery as beautiful as the ‘hooch. Whether it’s the jumbo lump crab cake with yuzu dressed slaw, or Hickory Grilled New York Strip with creme fraiche potatoes, broccoli rabe, and black garlic butter, Chef is a serious player. And she shows she’s got game (PUN ALERT!): slow-roasted Carolina rabbit with a swiss chard/bacon ravioli, sweet potato hash and candied garlic sauce; and a Duck N Beef Burger with a fried egg, wilted spinach, pickled cabbage, and truffle pommes frites.
