eat at river park

 

is the culmination of patience and preparation. Chef Mo and her husband Jackson were just living life, raising their kids, both working and enjoying their jobs, hers in collegiate culinary education, his in the public schools, and the eat at river park opportunity presented itself. What they came to find out is even though they weren’t putting any energies into restaurant ownership, they were actually ready for an opportunity they’d been rehearsing for for nearly two decades. Together, they are a formidable culinary team and have for years been serial DIY party throwers and entertainers, even hosting a wedding and reception at their residence. It’s all just in their collective DNA.

And now they present eat at river park. A cozy eatery tucked away in a suburban Woodstock, GA subdivision. An entity that garnered them almost immediate number one placement in their community on Yelp, month after month.  Inviting and warm with a 12 foot community table, burlap curtains, a "Georgia boy meets Louisiana girl" theme, eclectic music. Elevated southern cuisine with a nod to Chef Mo’s Louisiana heritage with wild gulf shrimp and Leidenheimer roll po boys and donut bread pudding, or Jackson's southern roots with fried grit bites and spiced coffee rubbed wings, to a grab and geaux 'market' with shrimp and grits casseroles and Shepherd’s pies, to a 'bakery' with her famed cakes and Louisiana praline “pecan candy.”

There's something at eat for everyone...those that want to dine, those that want a wholesome meal they can take and bake at home, or for those in a serious dessert kind of mood.
