Serpas True Food is a modern American restaurant in the Studioplex complex in the Old 4th Ward / Inman Park border country. I’ve only dined at Serpas, run by chef Scott Serpas, once and it was a truly delightful and fulfilling experience.
Obviously, entrees are important, but a high quality selection of appetizers is equally important. Serpas is a place where you can go to sit at the bar and imbibe nice cocktails and appetizers with a sleek atmosphere or get the full dining experience with entrees and all.
I went my mother, which is a somewhat rare occasion, so naturally we like to dive all in when we break bread. We started with the Grilled Octopus, which was truly tender, thick, well cooked, and overall extremely tasty. I would even go as far as to say that it beats Kyma’s woodfire grilled octopus.
I ordered the the ribeye cooked medium with mashed potatoes and a fried onion ring to top it off. Mom got the filet cooked medium with cheese grits and fried shrimp. She wanted to substitute the cheese grits for whatever other side came with the meal, and at first the server was hesitant to ask the kitchen, but was able to pull of the change in the end.
The fried shrimp were an outstanding addition to the filet as was the onion ring to the ribeye. We were able to take down every bit of food, and could not stop talking about how delicious everything was.
The service was all around great, as they were very accommodating, fast, and friendly. The drinks were still, and the food was delicious. This is an Atlanta staple that surely won’t let you down.
