Staplehouse Restaurant Atlanta Ga Reviews

About the restaurant & décor: A historic Old Fourth Ward building that once housed a famous photo studio gives Staplehouse the texture of old brick walls and soaring ceilings for its abode. One of the most exciting restaurants in the city, Staplehouse requires a pre-paid deposit to secure a reservation, or guests may chance finding a spot at the small eight-seat bar. Reservations for no more than four persons are released at noon on the second Friday of each month for the following month. After-tax profit is contributed to The Giving Kitchen, which aids area restaurant workers facing crises. (Source: www.gayot.com)

Staplehouse in Atlanta Is the Best New Restaurant in America 2016

Ryan Smith is not happy with the flatiron steak that just landed in front of him. It’s grilled to an on-the-nose medium-rare, but a thin streak of gristle runs through the middle of each fanned-out slice. Most chefs would let it slide, but not Smith. He tells a cook to do another one “on the fly,” kitchen-speak for “drop whatever the f*#% you’re doing and make it again!” Smith, a burly 36-year-old who could pass for Seth Rogen’s lost twin, may look like a laid-back guy. But not right now. His intense focus at this moment gives that steak exactly no chance of leaving the kitchen. Too many people have sacrificed too much opening Staplehouse for things not to be perfect. (Source: www.bonappetit.com)

Staplehouse Atlanta, Ga 3031

Every time we go here we think, "man, this dish is so good!" I don't know how they keep doing it but I am constantly amazed by how much flavor they pack into everything they make. From the Italian grinder sandwich, to the tomato pie, to the tacos- everything is top notch. They also have a fabulous market - hello deliciously aged steaks and wonderful bottles of wine! Great backyard with tables to stay and eat (and drink a cocktail) if you choose. Overall love love love. So glad...read full review 


Named 2016’s best new restaurant in America by Bon Appétit, Staplehouse is still Atlanta’s hardest reservation to score. Husband-and-wife team Ryan and Jen Hidinger dreamed up the restaurant after a series of successful supper clubs, which they hosted in their own home. Before they could open, however, Ryan was diagnosed with stage IV gallbladder cancer. Atlanta’s restaurant community rallied around the couple, raising money for Ryan’s treatments and eventually founding the Giving Kitchen charity. Eventually, the Hidingers leased a space and brought in Ryan’s sister Kara and her boyfriend, Ryan Smith, to run the restaurant. Ryan passed away in 2014 but his legacy lives on at Staplehouse, where Jen now serves as the business manager. While Ryan’s story is at the heart of the restaurant—a portion of the proceeds goes toward his charity—it’s Smith’s seasonally inspired menu that has kept Staplehouse on top.
