What's Next For Homespun

Jamie and I have pursued our passion for serving wholesome food and providing exceptional hospitality to metro Atlanta for the past 4 years with Homespun. We have brought intimate dining into hundreds of homes where are guests were able to enjoy a great meal with their loved ones. The mission has always been to create an experience that would bring community back around the table.

Kitchen Six

It is with great anticipation that we transition Homespun to a new home. This fall we will be opening a restaurant in the heart of the North Decatur neighborhood- Oak Grove. Created for the community by the community the restaurant, Kitchen Six, will be a casual, fine dining eatery offering an intentionally limited menu by providing an elevated but approachable selection. Driven by highly seasonal ingredients will allow us to continue creating quality and thoughtful dishes. 

There were some key elements that we wanted in a restaurant, and with this opportunity we have the honor of partnering with individuals passionate about their neighborhood. We will be offering food that is authentic without being pretentious, creating an atmosphere where great conversation and food can be enjoyed alongside neighbors, friends, and families. We see Kitchen Six being a place where we can provide genuine hospitality as if we were inviting you into our own home.

With an intimate sixty seat dining room and bar, Kitchen Six will strive to create an unique experience for Oak Grove locals and the surrounding Atlanta area. Concentrating on dinner service and Sunday brunch, we hope the gathering spot is a favorite to enjoy Homespun's familiar seasonal cuisine. The full bar will be the ideal place to relax over handcrafted cocktails, wines and locals beers.

Homespun will still be operating as the restaurant's catering and private chef service. Continue to use our website to inquire about bookings.

Blood Orange

Valentine's weekend is right around the corner! This year we are excited to co-host a gathering with Cool Atlanta at Brick + Mortar on the Westside. Visit the shop listing for full details and complete menu.

To give you a hint, the menu is chocolate inspired! Actually this dinner will have the same menu from the very first gathering Jason and I planned (4 years ago!!!). We went on our first date the following weekend (and the rest is history.... Homespun was born and we go married). Pretty fitting and romantic for Valentine's, right?
