Twisted Soul is taking over the space that previously housed MARBAR, and the restaurant is planning to open by December 3, according to Atlanta Magazine. Chef and caterer Deborah VanTrece, who previously ran Edible Art, is reviving her soul food concept.
"The restaurant will have a Southern twist, a soulful twist-a little different than the farm-to-table Southern fusion," VanTrece says.
She will be working with local farmers and offer seasonal menus. Items may include cocoa-crusted rack of lamb with sweet potato pone and spoonbread, shrimp and crab fritters, seafood paella macaroni, and barbecue chicken spring rolls. At the bar, the focus will be on Southern spirits like bourbon, as well as pecan and sweet potato vodkas. There will be a sweet potato martini, white whiskey cobbler, and a Georgia sunrise. Craft beers will also be available.
Edible Art was open in East Atlanta from 1998 to 2002. VanTrece has been running her catering since the restaurant's shutter.
