Food 101 Morningside To Become Rosebud

After purchasing Food 101 Morningside early this year, Executive Chef Ron Eyester has announced that come July 6, 2009, the restaurant will officially become Rosebud, Eyester's image of the "perfect neighborhood restaurant."

The new name comes from the name of a custom guitar belonging to Jerry Garcia, a tribute to Chef Eyester's love of music.

Aside from a few aesthetic changes, Chef Eyester and his staff maintain that the soul of the restaurant will remain the same: friendly, comfortable atmosphere with the familiar great food that patrons have come to love. While favorites like the Springer Mountain fried chicken and Wild Georgia shrimp and grits maintain their premium spots on the menu, new recipes like vanilla and sage grilled Riverview Farms pork loin medallion with smoked bacon-creamed cabbage and grilled cobia with "corn off the cob," citrus chive slaw and peach BBQ jus will highlight the restaurant's dedication to reinventing American classics with local ingredients.

As for those minor aesthetic changes? These updates include a fresh coat of paint, refinished floors, and a new banquet. Chef Eyester would like Rosebud to be an "evolution" of Food 101 Morningside rather than a departure from the original concept.

Rosebud will be open for lunch Monday through Friday from 11:30 am until 2:30 pm. Dinner is served from 5:30 pm until 10 pm Monday through Thursday and until 11 pm on Friday and Saturday. The restaurant also offers a weekend brunch on Saturday from 10 am until 3 pm and Sunday until 4 pm.
