One Day All of Our Dinner Dreams Came True: Hugh Acheson's 5&10 Athens, Georgia

I have a very, very hard time posting about the most memorable events in my life. Since I've been blogging, I tend to put off writing about the memories I love the most. It's nearly impossible to describe my most memorable moments in just pictures and words- from family vacations, best friends' engagements, birthday celebrations, trips to Disney, New York, Hawaii, Chicago, Haiti (Haiti was the most difficult of all!)....these are the posts that are the hardest to create.

There are NO words that will ever live up to the memory itself. So for these posts, I usually just sit in front of the blank screen a while before I finally throw some words and photos on the blog to document the moment & call it a day.

Which leads me to why I've been putting off this post!

Well, I've been putting this post off ,because Hugh Acheson's 5&10 in Athens, Georgia made all of my dinner dreams come true and I just could not find the words to describe the most perfect of dining experiences...

Every single detail...from the serene natural lighting of the restaurant, to the detailed menu, to the thoughtfulness of each seasonal ingredient and each course plating... not to mention the incredible service! It was all just fantastic. Nope, I did not get paid to write this post. 5&10 really is just this wonderful.

Crisp Pork Belly: pickled cherry, shaved celery salad, grilled corn, peanut aioli
You know what else is wonderful? Friends. Friends like Brynn from Breaking Bread who also appreciate a homemade, handmade-from-scratch meal. She's my favorite foodie friend. and we're going back asap.

Check out this pasta...

5&10 Pasta Laces: creme fraiche, preserved eggplant, banana peppers, benne seed, summer sage

it was all a dream.

5&10 is also incredibly accommodating for those with food allergies as well, and work hard to adjust any of their menus to fit your dietary needs. (if you call beforehand)

Glazed North Carolina Trout: anson mills farro, onion broth, pecorino, fried kale
^^they made this dish gluten free by using peas instead of farro. and it. was. incredible. 

It was so great to chat over delicious food, share a delicious meal, and to just be present in the moment instead of rushing, rushing...

Brown Butter Panna Cotta: Pear caramel, thyme (usually comes w/ oat cookie but was made gf w/out)
Y'all. If you are in the Athens, GA area, 5&10 is a MUST. It's a must as often as you can visit. Their three-course Prix Fixe menu changes often and is available for 5:30, 5:45, and 6:00pm reservations. Shoutout to Head Chef Jason Zygmont who prepared our meal for us. It was a memory we won't forget!! We will be back!
