The menu at Little Bear features around 12 shareable dishes, ranging from $7 to $13, broken out into hot, cold, and sweet sections. Dishes listed include Stieber’s tongue-and-cheek descriptions, like a catfish okonomiyaki served with 1990s-style mayo and brown sauce drizzles or apples and pork belly “drowning” in Sichuan chile oil. For dessert there’s the gold rice pudding topped with an “unnecessary garnish,” because “how frivolous!”

Initially, it was a prix fixe for two that catered to couples who wanted an at-home tasting-menu experience. For a time, the kitchen produced themed menus that paid homage to cuisines from around the world. “When we were doing rotating countries, it was a lot of fun at first, then it became kind of limiting,” Stieber said.

Chef Jarrett Stieber describes opening Little Bear, his new Summerhill restaurant, as “surreal”. After running the wildly popular pop-up Eat Me Speak Me for years, his restaurant already has a built-in set of regulars. Most have followed Stieber since his days at Gato cafe in Candler Park, where he offered playful takes on the fine dining establishment’s proclivity for tweezer food garnished with “pretentious flowers” or desserts like a blondie brownie and whiskey milk served with a tiny straw.

The intimate dining atmosphere at the restaurant should feel familiar to those who attended Stieber’s pop-ups at Gato. The chef even stands behind the counter cooking in an open kitchen while chatting with diners. Little Bear includes just 30 seats between a row of two-top tables set against a long, wooden banquette and a ten-seat bar. (Source: atlanta.eater.com)

“Running a pop up for seven years was never the plan, and the whole time, it basically feels like being a grown up living with roommates — even good roommates are still roommates — and you’re ready for your own space,” Stieber says. “Hopefully we can turn this place into a comfortable, beloved neighborhood restaurant for a long time to come and a place for people to be pleasantly surprised.” (Source: atlanta.eater.com)
