G. Garvin heads to his hometown, Atlanta, the place where his southern-inspired roots were born. He starts with shrimp and grits at Local Three, where a unique kitchen is giving brunch a makeover, then satisfies his sweet tooth with red velvet cake from A Piece of Cake. G tops off the day at JCT Kitchen with a true southern treat, fried chicken, along with some very inventive cocktails.
