The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Wyatt Williams reviews 101 Steak, the recently opened Vinings steakhouse from the team behind Civo e Beve and Meehan’s Public House. Williams assigns a rating of two out of four stars, and despite some inconsistencies on the menu and with service, he says the beef does not disappoint.
So, what do you get for all that cash? The prime meat here is as decadently marbled as one could want, largely sourced from the Illinois distributor Meats by Linz (who happens to supply a number of other steakhouses in Atlanta, not to mention the rest of the country). ... Aside from a plate of lamb chop lollipops that arrived well done on the ends and blue in the center, the kitchen here consistently delivers precisely cooked meat.
