Reviews for The Spence

Richard Blais’ has been around the world and back again, and has the Top Chef crown to show for it. Reality show fans can sit center stage next to the open kitchen in Midtown to watch Blais & his crew plate your dishes. Menu items range from pasta made from sea urchin and General Tso’s sweetbreads to his take on the Midwest favorite, the juicy lucy burger. It’d be a mistake to leave without trying a glass of wine from the impressive list or missing out on the crowd favorite cocktail “The Methodist.”

Across from the GT Barnes & Noble, stop by The Spence to see some of the creative and delectable dishes Chef Richard Blais cooks up. For dessert, order the milk chocolate and burnt banana ice cream or the ricotta cheesecake!

Wow, what a restaurant; Richard Blais is cooking up some seriously fun and creative dishes!

over a year ago

Midtown got a boost in its culinary jugular when Chef Richard Blais, the winner of Bravo’s Top Chef All-Stars, decided to re-enter the fine dining scene after re-inventing the burger and hot dog for hungry Atlantans when he opened his latest venture, The Spence. Getting its name from an old English term that means the pantry or dispensary of foods and provisions; this modern day dispensary seems more like an alchemist’s laboratory where Chef Blais transcends into his alter ego by becoming a Merlin-like figure, a wizard of the kitchen. Here Chef Blais takes foods and alters them using somewhat unconventional cooking techniques or ingredients to create flavors and textures that brings an unexpected surprise into the meal that challenges the comfort zone in a good way. This newly opened eatery has become an overnight sensation for dinners that seek a surreal experience in a robust trendy atmosphere where foods are exciting, unique, and simply a thrill to taste.
