Restaurant Review

Athens Georgia is a great college town known for the Georgia Bulldogs. After eating dinner there recently, it will be also known for The Grit. This trendy healthy eating establishment is at 199 Prince Avenue, 706-543-6592, thegrit.com. This restaurant has been around for over twenty years. My wife had one of their fabulous bowls, the Golden Bowl loaded with veggies and seasoned tofu. My daughter had the tabouli, but I must say I think I picked out the best dish.

I had the Seitan cheese steak. The texture and flavoring made every bite an adventure for my taste buds. I also had a side of sweet potato fries which were delicious. All of the veggies were fresh and perfectly flavored. With years of experience The Grit knows what works when it comes to healthy foods. Omnivores are as comfortable as herbivores there. I think the way they texture Seitan is the key to helping the meat-eaters realize that plant-based food can taste great and have the same texture they are accustomed to.

The atmosphere was eclectic with modern art, large windows and an energy you would expect from a college town. The Grit is worth the trip to Athens alone. Add in a great college town with friendly folks and your day will be one to remember.
