Garden & Gun

Better Half is named as one of the five most exciting new restaurants in the South by Garden & Gun magazine.



“Better Half is a restaurant with a great story, beginning with the handkerchief pasta that Zach made Cristina on their first date—a fixture on the ever-changing menu.

““I’d want Better Half to cater my Thanksgiving. I’ve been a huge fan of Zach Meloy’s cooking since he was doing pop-up dinners at the Goat Farm Arts Center. Plus, he’d probably [come up with] something crazy, like gravy that’s the consistency of Dippin Dots, and that sounds delicious.”

“…[I]t quickly became known as milanesa — this version was made with various meats (beef, chicken, veal, pork and even eggplant) dipped into beaten eggs and seasoned bread crumbs before getting shallow-fried in oil. In Atlanta, you’ll find a mishmash rendering at Better Half — chef Zach Meloy, who cooked in Costa Rica, pounds beef top round before breading the meat in leftover ground corn tortilla and frying to serve with shrimp Louie salad, avocado puree, smoked chile and cilantro jelly.”
