Rathbun’s

Kevin Rathbun is a bona fide rock star chef. Since he defeated Iron Chef Bobby Flay in 2008, his reputation as one of the best chefs in the country has sky rocketed and his restaurants are perennially mentioned among the best in the country.

Along with Krog Bar and Kevin Rathbun’s Steak, Rathbun’s is the third of the chef’s eateries on Krog Street in the Old Fourth Ward, located halfway between the iconic Krog Street Bridge and the entrance to the Eastside Beltline Trail.

Rathbun’s serves modern American food, from Sea Scallop Benedict on Country Ham Grits, to Chef Kevin’s signature Crispy Duck Breast with Thai Risotto, and a few “second mortgage plates” that include Elk Chop, Blueberry Demi and Foraged Mushroom-Goat Cheese Polenta (a variation on one of the dishes that defeated Bobby Flay), and a 22oz bone-in ribeye.

Highlights

Crispy Duck Breast with Thai Risotto

A firm customer favorite, subtle green curry flavors a delicious risotto and makes a perfect counterpoint to the richness of the crispy, tender duck breast.

Elk Chop, Blueberry Demi, Foraged Mushroom-Goat Cheese Polenta

A variaiton of one of the dishes that defeated Iron Chef Bobby Flay, this “second mortgage plate” is more than the sum of its parts. Even though the polenta could be a best supporting dish to almost any protein, and the blueberry cuts the gaminess of the elk, it’s the bite that includes a little of everything that will have you refinancing as often as you can.
