This week, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Jenny Turknett awards SeaBass Kitchen one star. The restaurant opened in the former Rumi's Kitchen space, and Turknett says that chef Sam Brunola's food "reflects his philosophy, with simple preparations featuring Middle Eastern and Mediterranean flavors. He uses a handful of key ingredients [...] that put the seafood front and center, for better or for worse." Sourcing is questionable, and some of the dishes fall flat, though Turknett seems to believe that the "perfect synergy" SeaBass wants could be found with a little more care.
