Looks like everyone wants to get comfy...

...The breakfast and lunch spot — which has been considered Atlanta’s favorite place to get biscuits — has gained a loyal base since opening in June 2010. Celebrities such as John Hamm and Bill Clinton have dined there, and Jerry Seinfeld stopped by last week before his show at the Fox Theatre.
And now chef Kevin Clark’s pimento cheese is developing some standalone recognition as a retail product, recently expanding into Georgia. It became available for purchase at many metro Atlanta Krogers in late March.
For three hours you will be on a tour like no other. Every location will evoke a time and period of Civil Rights, including Ralph Abernathy’s West Hunter Street Church, the mural of John Lewis on Auburn Avenue and the office on Auburn Avenue where MLK, Abernathy, Andrew Young and Hosea Williams made decisions that changed the world.

It wasn’t until Kevin Clark opened Home Grown GA that he came to like this Southern classic, which can easily turn thin and soggy. What’s his secret? Slice the tomatoes no less than ¼ inch thick, then salt and pepper them generously about five minutes before frying. Give the slices several good tosses to evenly distribute the seasoning. And instead of the traditional cornmeal, he uses panko Japanese breadcrumbs.
Homegrown, nestled between overgrown lots and a body shop, doesn’t look like a place for a superior breakfast. Neither does their trademark comfy biscuit, a messy, chaotic jumble of fried chicken and sausage gravy, garnished with an ironically thin orange slice. And yet, this is the dish that helped earn the diner city-wide acclaim.“It’s just simple Southern food,” says Kevin Clark, chef and owner of Homegrown. “It’s comforting. It feels like you’re at your grandmother’s house.”
Everyone loves Home Grown, Atlanta's favorite local-fresh-homemade haven of breakfast and lunch. We invited our friends, owners Lisa and Kevin to compare notes on these two very different businesses. Where the Vortex walks the gritty line between debauchery and charm, Home Grown glistens like a beacon of light in the darkness. You'll want to sop up every last bite of this episode with a hot buttermilk biscuit. - Vortex Radio
