Eat local, and "feel good!" Burgers and soul on Broad St. in Augusta...After "The Masters" golf tournament, James Brown is arguably Augusta's most familiar claim to fame outside of the South...No surprise, then, that a sculptural tribute to "The Godfather of Soul" can be found in the middle of downtown's Broad Street...
And just a couple of blocks from the statue, there's "Farmhaus"--a bar-and-burger joint that does its best to be a locavore hangout: meat and veggies from local farms...Sriracha sauce on the counter if you want to kick up the heat...SWEET-POTATO-tater-tots! Milkshakes for grown-ups with rum and Kahlua...And, this being the South, fried pickles.
I had the 'Farmstyle'--topped with a "local farm egg," sunny side up, and 'heirloom bacon.' The menu reads like something you'd find in Portland or Brooklyn, but with a definite regional accent. Augustans have voted Farmhaus' burgers the best in the city.
Truth be told, Augusta's downtown, while architecturally endowed, is not exactly 'vibrant'...but restaurants like Farmhaus are doing their part to revive the city. Taste the scene.
(Closed on Mondays. And there's nothing even remotely German about the place, in case you're wondering about the "haus" part in the restaurant's name...Walk off the fat on the Riverwalk above the Savannah River just a few blocks away.)
