Read this cookbook: “Everything I Want to Eat: Sqirl and the New California Cooking” by Jessica Koslow (Abrams, $45)
By Wendell Brock
It may be premature to call Jessica Koslow the most exciting California chef since Alice Waters. Then again, it might not be.
Inspired by the bountiful fruit of California, Koslow opened Los Angeles’ uber-hip Sqirl as a jam joint in 2011. Today, the breakfast-and-lunch spot that turned humble toast into a “Thing” is where the beautiful people flock to much on Koslow’s fat slabs of burnt brioche slathered with ricotta and jam; her sorrel-pesto rice bowls; and malva pudding cakes.

This Year, Leave It to the Pros
Leave it to Star Provisions and Bacchanalia’s Chef Anne Quatrano to take Thanksgiving dinner to the next level. In addition to sides ($9.95 for small, $19.90 for large) including buttered rutabagas, dressing with apples and sage, braised local collards, creamed onions, Brussels sprouts and bacon and garlicky roasted cauliflower, and traditional apple, pumpkin and pecan pies ($20 each), you can pick up the Rolls Royce of birds. Quatrano sources Heritage Breed Black Turkeys from a small North Carolina family farm, so she can confirm they’re organic, free-range and humanely raised. The turkeys come raw (brined or unbrined), but the super-knowledgeable team at Star Provisions is ready and willing to offer tips on how to cook them to perfection. Don’t leave without a dozen — or two — of the signature thyme-onion rolls.

Star Provisions and Bacchanalia to Relocate to New Westside Location in 2017
Star Provisions To-Go Will Remain in Current Space at Westside Provisions
(May 19, 2016) – Beloved Atlanta restaurant institutions Star Provisions and Bacchanalia will be moving from the Westside Provisions District to a new, custom built location at the Ellsworth Office Lofts in 2017. Star Provisions To-Go will remain in the current location.
Chef/Owners Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison site their desire to best accommodate their concepts in a building built to their specifications as motivation for the relocation.
“We are committed to the Westside and the timing is right for us to have our own stand-alone building for these two concepts,” said Anne Quatrano. “We are excited about the new space, and most importantly what we will be able to offer our guests by way of dine-in seating in Star Provisions, catering, ease of access and private event space options.”
Location transition is nothing new for these seasoned restaurateurs. Star Provisions and Bacchanalia have been in their current location since 1999, with Bacchanalia previously occupying a space in Buckhead when it originally opened in 1993. Little Bacch joined the Westside line up in 2015, to high-acclaim in the space previously occupied by Quinones at Bacchanalia, and will close as a result of the move. Since Executive Chef Joseph Schafer currently oversees both Bacchanalia and Little Bacch’s kitchens, one can certainly expect some influence of Little Bacch to make the transition to the new location and into the menu at the new Bacchanalia location.
“As long time supporters of Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison, we believe this is a great opportunity for them to have a purpose built building,” adds Michael Phillips Owner, Westside Urban Market.
Fortunate for current neighborhood guests, the Ellsworth Industrial Boulevard Star Provisions/Bacchanalia complex will be a simple left then right turns from the current location less than 1.5 miles away. Guests can expect a familiar feeling of understated elegance in the new space.
The project is led by: Developer & Owner, Stream Realty Partners (Ben Hautt, Chris Dean, and Kevin Driver), Architecture firm, Perkins + Will (Ping Wong, Vance Cheatham, Jared Serwer, Joyce Fownes, Zan Stewart, Seth Crawford and John Stinson), Builder, Structor Group (Jeff Stratton and Mitch Kaas), Civil Architect, Columbia Engineering (Jennifer Losurdo), MEP Architect, Covalent Consulting (Patrick Wilkes), Structural Architect, Forsite Group (Holly Jeffreys).
Send-off and moving events at the concepts are expected as the transition ramps up to take place in late 2016. Sign up with your email address to receive news and updates from Star Provisions at starprovisions.com. More info about Ellsworth Office Lofts at ellsworthofficelofts.com.
