A few years ago, Scott and McCall Wilder’s daughter, a sufferer from severe peanut allergies, had a harrowing incident where she nearly died from consuming a peanut-laden dish. That experience caused the Wilders to become clean-eating Jedi-Masters, learning not only how to cook “clean” but also how to navigate restaurant menus for the freshest and most allergy-free dishes available. Now they bring that knowledge to Buckhead with an impressive (and really darn tasty) concept called Karma Farm.
Karma Farm is a fast-casual farm-to-table concept serving hyper-healthy “meat and three” options; southern-inspired comfort food that will delight carnivores, pescatarians, vegetarians and vegans alike. Certified gluten-free, GMO-free, offering only organic versions of “the dirty dozen” with every dish possessing less than 10 ingredients, this is a place you can chow down and feel great.
But you’re probably thinking what I was thinking: if it’s so gosh darn healthy, how on earth could be a) delicious and b) filling. Let me assure you, it’s both. Dishes like Southern black-eyed pea caviar, Mediterranean albacore tuna salad, Asian all-natural chicken salad, roasted chickpea soup, spicy noodles, Norwegian steelhead trout, certified humane beef, and braised Springer Mountain Farms herbed chicken are just some of the hearty options from which to choose. The portions are huge, the flavors are rich and bold. Even the desserts—cookie dough truffles, chocolate chip cookies, and blueberry muffins are delicious and, yes, Neal Boortz, gluten-free.
Extremely common on the west coast, clean-eating fast causal concepts are scarce at best in the ATL. That could be about to change. Great for dining-in and even better to grab-and-go, I think Karma Farm will reformat a lot of people’s concepts about having their gluten-free cake and eating it too.
