Most frequently lauded for its sliders, small plates, and brunch offerings (RIP, bottomless mimosas, you’ll be missed), The Shed at Glenwood has much more to offer than that. The popular Glenwood Park eatery focuses on sustainability — using organic, local produce for their farm-to-table concept. Owners Cindy Shera and Todd Martin opened the restaurant with Executive Chef Todd Richards in 2008 to offer a homey atmosphere where people could enjoy either a casual or fine dining experience without the intimidation factor. “People shouldn’t have to be intimidated by a restaurant or by food or by wine,” says Shera. To that end, The Shed offers bi-monthly wine classes (next one November 22) without the pretentiousness and a wide range of menu offerings that range from duck confit to shrimp and grits. WellATL asked Executive Chef Todd Richards to reveal the healthiest, tastiest options on his menu.
