Review: The Shed at Glenwood (1)
Chef Lance Gummere creates a bistro classic
When the Shed at Glenwood opened in April of last year, it had aspirations to bring a true neighborhood restaurant to an area that's always struggled to resemble a true neighborhood. Tacked on to the back end of North Ormewood Park, Glenwood Park is a deftly designed and appealing example of a new urban development. But the timing of its completion, right before the housing bubble burst and the economy tanked, has left many of its wide, windowed storefronts empty. The result is kind of eerie, like an adorable ghost town.
Set up in a large corner space, the Shed seemed poised to bring new life to Glenwood Park. Here was a restaurant where you might drop in for a fresh fruit cocktail if you lived nearby, or wander over to for brunch on the weekend. Not a destination restaurant perhaps, but certainly a spot exhibiting higher aspirations than most of whats available in the Grant Park/Ormewood/East Atlanta area.
