A fine example of meat and three: barbecue pork surrounded on an unbreakable partitioned plate by fresh rutabagas, collard greens, and squash. Not pictured: corn bread, biscuit, and ice tea. And coconut cake for dessert.

Fresh rutabagas were a revelation: buttery rich and earthy, more sweet than bitter.

If you fly into Atlanta hungry, this is a restaurant you need to know about. It is a five-minute drive from the airport.
