Installation (Wordpress Part): Steakhead's Atlanta Eats Blog: The Doctor Is In

The Doctor Is In

Now normally, a place that is based on the novel concept of healthy eating would not be close to a place you would find Steakhead. But when said concept comes from the folks who brought you Moe's and MaMa Fu's, well, I just had to try Doc Green's on Ponce de Leon. And you know what? Its pretty darned good!

"Healhty As You Wanna Be' is the motto of Doc Green's on Ponce de Leon and salad is the main attraction. In typical Moe's fashion, you direct how its ultimately made, including the type of lettuce, toppings, dressings and meat. Signature salads have Moe-like names such as the Dr. Rosen Rosen and Doctor Detroit. But for those looking for more substance in their meals, Doc also offers flatbread sandwiches. Of course, I highly recommend the sirloin steak sandwich.

Though Doc Green's does offer soup, a Roasted Tomato Bisque, which is outstanding, I was sort of hoping for more of a selection here. They used to have NE Clam Chowder, but removed it since the opening due to lack of sales.

The easy comparison here is to Atlanta Bread Company, and each has their own advantages. But Doc succeeds in creating a fun atmosphere for healthy lunches that will satisfy both the hungry and health conscious. And its proximity to Intown neighborhoods of Virginia Highlands, Inman Park and Midtown will help in creating another successful launch for the Raving Brands restuarant group. Grade: B+.

I read this review this morning, and since I was on my way back from Edgewood to my office at the Biltmore, I figured I'd stop in. I was pretty impressed - the salad was very fresh, balsamic dressing flavorful, and the flatbread chicken sandwich (though had a tendency to fall apart because of the sliced chicken) was very good.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Taurus was such a new experience & what a view. Minne came from Canoe Restaurant in Vinings. Great food, nice place. It is well worth a visit.
