A chalkboard on the wall lists all of the local producers that Leon’s Full Service, a hip community-driven restaurant and bar in the Atlanta suburb of Decatur, has a relationship with. I had the opportunity visit Leon’s earlier this week on my trip to Georgia. I met Becky Striepe, whose vegan recipes I frequently point to on this blog, for dinner, and we popped into the less than one-year-old restaurant. We were glad we did.
It was difficult to choose from their menu. Out of total curiosity, I was tempted by the bacon in a glass with optional peanut butter supplement. In deference to my vegan dining partner and the fact that I’d already eaten meat twice that day, I went with the sandwich of grilled vegetables, sun-dried tomato pesto, and laura chenel chèvre. I ordered a side of fries with a goat cheese fondue dipping sauce.
Leon’s has 12 different French fry, or as they call them pub frites, dipping sauces making the choice of one a delightful chore. In fact, I’m still questioning whether I should have ordered the fresh horseradish mayonnaise.
