Atlanta has more than its fair share of trendy restaurants featuring handcrafted cocktails, seasonal menus and insanely cool servers. While they do feature a changing menu, handcrafted cocktails and a hipster chic waitstaff, The Sound Table has managed to stand out from their peers by “putting sound on the menu.”
Located in the Old Fourth Ward, The Sound Table is a two story restaurant and lounge brought to us by the same team responsible for Top FLR. While diners upstairs engage in quiet conversations over small plates, revelers downstairs can grab a well mixed cocktails as they lounge next to The Sound Table’s defining feature: a deejay booth where where some of the hottest national and local deejays grace the ones and twos. In addition to providing the sound at The Sound Table, the bright green wall behind the deejay booth provides the only splash of color in an interior of exposed brick and light, natural wood.
The Sound Table’s menu features an array of “street-to-table” fare that is far less confusing than it sounds and is in fat quite enjoyable. The menu kicks off with small bites like lamb meatballs and Cece Friots, fried chickpeas, and then moves to heartier fare like Chinese pork ribs and Oaxacan hanger steak. If you aren’t a serious carnivore or you’re trying to stick to your New Year’s resolutions, The Sound Table has you covered with options like the arugula beet salad and Spatchcock grilled chicken, which are delicious might I add. Like Top FLR, The Sound Table’s menu is a la carte so be sure to add the perfect side to your compliment your entree, both the baby bok choy and squash and fired cauliflower are awesome but so are the Belgian-style frites with homemade mayo. The restaurant also offers a great take on the classic American burger, which I will definitely try on my next visit.
Since The Sound Table was recently added to Scoutmob’s ever growing deal list, be sure to make a reservation and be prepared to wait for a few minutes.
