For years, organics, slow food and locavorism have been struggling with their identity as a movement confined to high-end restaurants and high-priced marketplaces. But this summer, HOME GROWN opened, proving that fresh, local produce can be translated to affordable, neighborhood dining. Classic Southern dishes, fluffy biscuits, and the creamiest local creamed corn around make dining here special, as does the diverse clientele, which reflects the families, workers, hippies and hipsters of this changing neighborhood. 968 Memorial Drive. 404-222-0455. www.homegrownga.com.
