A Taste Excursion to Urban Foodie Feed Store by Jesse Bluma at Pointe Viven



A Taste Excursion to Urban Foodie Feed Store





Georgia state history courses through the restaurant.  Train tracks, brick walls, old signs, exposed ceilings, and southern graces create a re-energized past for diners to enjoy seasonal, fresh, and homemade dishes.  Urban Foodie Feed Store is located in a former feed store and keeps all the charm of the past, while providing premium cuisine.  

“Urban Foodie Feed Store focuses on fresh, seasonal, organic and local ingredients to create globally influenced cuisine.  This emphasis is based on the desire to create menus that are attractive on various levels-health conscious, usage of local ingredients, fresh and the from scratch element.  We have partnered with Metro Atlanta Urban Farm to provide naturally grown produce.”

Reserve a table in the dining room to enjoy a more intimate experience.  Or pull up a stool in the bar to have some good eats, drinks, and chat with the entertaining bartender.  In addition to the menu items of beer braised short ribs, crispy duck confit, and sweet potatoes, Urban Foodie Feed Store offers a matching impressive selection of drinks.  Local beers, crafted cocktails, and Tito’s vodka are essential to enjoy with your meal.

College Park, Georgia is a locale with great culture, community, and with easy access to the airport.  Kathleen B. McQueen and Michele K. Tompkins are the new heirs of the feed store.  Tompkins hails from New Jersey and is influenced by her grandfather, a former chef at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York.  McQueen is passionate about world cuisine, cocktails, and home cooking.  




My Recommendations

1.  The restaurant is located at 3841 Main Street College Park, Georgia.  This is a drivable distance from the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.  College Park is also home of the Georgia International Convention Center.

2.  Peak times occur during week days and nights, especially weekend nights and during special events in the city.  Make reservations to ensure a table. 

3.  The menu at Urban Foodie Feed Store has many tempting choices, such dishes made with collard slaw, truffle aioli, roasted golden beets, smoked bacon, and seasonal vegetables.  The following were my favorites.

Ancho chili braised short ribs

Poblano pimento macaroni and cheese

Herb brined, buttermilk fried chicken

Succotash whiskey collards

Pimento cheese cornbread
