Spring is a new American fine dining experience, with a welcoming atmosphere, tucked away in historic Marietta Square. Chef Brian serves a seasonal menu using ingredients that are locally and sustainably sourced (farm-to-table) and works with Sommelier Daniel Crawford.
Eating at Spring is easily one of the best and most interesting dining experiences I have had to date. Firstly, the setting is incredibly intimate. The kitchen is surprisingly small and could not have been larger than 8 x 7 feet. The waiters' prep area is just a metal table in the corner, within the open area of the restaurant. Therefore, while dining, you can see the staff diligently prepping the tableware and constantly working. Of note, the waiters were knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive while dining. The remainder of the restaurant is designated for dining with limited seating. The aforementioned cozy layout, dim lighting, and rustic chic design contribute to a romantic ambiance.
The food at Spring is the most noteworthy part of the experience. I was pleasantly surprised by how carefully prepared and immaculate each dish was. The flavors were well layered and dynamic. While the menu is limited, it was apparent to me that each dish was specially crafted and well thought out. I particularly enjoyed the sunchoke soup with winter truffle, Wagyu beef carpaccio, and Maine lobster garganelli.
Spring is a great place to consider for your next date night, especially with Valentine's day quickly approaching. It normally takes two weeks in advance for a reservation but is well worth the wait.
