When Mr. Russell envisioned SpringHouse, it was crucial that the restaurant reflect and honor the land. With that in mind, Russell Lands On Lake Martin teamed up with Executive Chef Rob McDaniel to deliver a restaurant that respected the land and a menu that featured excellent, local products. Mr. Russell chose a commanding location on a hillcrest overlooking The Stables, pastures, pine and hardwood forests and, in the distance, serene Lake Martin.
Five-time James Beard “Best Chef: South” semi-finalist, Chef McDaniel aims to keep the food simple and honest. Whether it is called “contemporary American,” “progressive Southern,” or “Southern vernacular,” the dishes make the most of the region. Up-and-coming local purveyors provide staples like fresh farm eggs, spinach, and arugula. Daily menus feature meat and produce of the place and of the time— literally a snapshot of a day in a season.
