The Beautiful Restaurant is in southeast Atlanta. The promise of pie caught my eye as I drove by and so I decided to try it. But I'm hardly the first person to do so---several awards decorate its walls.
The Beautiful is a classic southern cafeteria. I decided to try the short ribs, which were fork tender an delicious. The collard greens were tangy as they should be. The cornbread dressing was very sweet and a perfect complement to the other two. Since the peach cobbler was on display, I decided to try it and save the pie for another visit. The filling was sweet but not too sweet; the topping was soft and rich from immersion in peach sauce. I couldn't finish my dinner, so I took the cobbler home with me and finished it later.
