Fortify Kitchen & Bar

New American in Clayton

Clayton's best night out is this stylish farm-to-table supper club from chef Jamie Allred, North Georgia's top kitchen dog. Some of the Southeast's best purveyors form the foundation for incredible fried green tomatoes with blackened Gulf shrimp or cornmeal-crusted Carolina mountain trout with dill pesto. Serious cocktails ($10) and desserts (pecan tart with blood-orange caramel) bookend an evening here.

If you're looking for something more casual, it does gourmet pizza ($12 to $22) next door at Fortify Pi. Dinner reservations essential.
