Woodfire's heat picked up in 2009 when Kevin Gillespie, executive chef here since 2008, became a viewer favorite during season six (the Vegas season) of Bravo TV's Top Chef, a competition he only narrowly missed winning. The cuisine here is New American with a Southern slant; fresh local ingredients and sustainable meats and seafood are fire roasted and grilled. The food is prepared simply though your taste buds will think otherwise thanks to Gillespie's magic. The pork belly, which may be wood-grilled one day and slow roasted with peanuts and spices the next thanks to the daily menu changes, never fails to impress us. Woodfire Grill is one of the best Atlanta restaurants for classic local flavorings. Dinner consists of first, second and main courses, but the very popular three- and five-course tasting menus will guarantee you’ll get whatever Chef Gillespie thinks is his best that particular night.
