I was flipping through the flagpole's Guide to Athens yesterday and saw a listing in the restaurants section about The National, which is being started by chef hugh acheson of the cherished five and ten. anyone know anything? the entry says this:
236 W. Hancock Ave
The National is a culinary endeavor of Chef Hugh Acheson (Five & Ten). The food is Mediterranean in inspiration with special attention paid to southern French, Spanish, Greek and even some North African flavors. The classic tapa gambas al ajillo is made with shrimp, olives and sherry in a warm terra cotta dish with crusty bread for the sauce. A Turkish chopped salad with a yogurt sauce reflects the kitchen's diversity. The acute wine drinker will appreciate the extensive wine list and the cruvinet wine preservation system allowing high end bottle to be sold by the glass.
aaanyone know when this place opens? what about price level? on par with five and ten? I'm very excited to visit the National for the first time.
