It seems every time I turn around, they are opening up a new spot at East Andrews. Is there a secret portal that makes it bigger than it looks that allows them to keep adding new spots? Besides Cellar 56, Czar Ice Bar, Prohibition, the Improv Comedy Club, now there’s Stillhouse: Moonshine and Craft Burgers. We attended the media night to sample some of the tasty burgers and expertly crafted cocktails.
The small bar / restaurant features a handful of booths against the wall. And there are hightop tables with Troy and Sons barrels as the base. But if you want to get in on all the action, it’s at the bar. Bartenders make moonshine concoctions – smoked moonshine even! The Thyme to Shine (pictured below) made with muddled berries, grapefruit and, you guessed it – Thyme, was average, but the Carolina Mule moonshine cocktail (a twist on the classic Moscow Mule) was fantastic. And a smoked moonshine with maple was quite satiating for an after dinner drink.
There are the usual suspects to start the meal, like mussels or deviled eggs. But if you want to try something a bit out of the ordinary, go for the peanut butter hummus. This is quite substantial for 2 to 4 people to share. And besides, you’ll definitely want to save room for those two-patty-piled-high-with-toppings-burgers.
If you are in the mood for seafood, try the Oyster burger or the Crab cake burger. I was this close to getting the crab burger, but instead chose the Buckhead Burger topped with beets, duck confit, goat cheese and a green tomato relish. A duck burger was equally as delicious, but I’m going back for the PB&J burger (two beef patties topped with Stillhouse’s signature peanut butter hummus, fig jam, peaches and blue cheese.
