Celebrity chef Kevin Gillespie’s new Decatur restaurant is revising menu prices, a few days before it opens.

The restaurant released a menu Monday, but the prices caused several online commenters to balk. When Decaturish contacted Gillespie’s spokesperson for a comment about the menu prices, she said, “Kevin reviewed the menu pricing and realized there was an error causing it to be higher than it should be. The menu will reflect correct—and lower!—prices for the opening on Thursday.”

Here are the updated menu prices, provided by Gillespie’s spokesperson:

Sliced local tomatoes with cucumbers and sweet onion- $10

Toasted deviled ham tea sandwiches – $6

Local kale salad with old-fashioned boiled dressing – $10

Pickled Georgia Shrimp and Green Tomatoes – $10

Country-fried Kobe beef round steak with skillet pan gravy – $13

Revival fried chicken – $13

Grassfed Beef and Pork meatloaf wrapped in bacon – $11

Wood-grilled Berkshire pork steak – $16

Spiced Mississippi catfish in low country tomato gravy -$14

Wood-grilled South Carolina quail glazed with roasted honey and garlic -$18

Mushroom-stuffed cabbage dumpling with spicy roasted tomato sauce – $18

Fatback-fried silver queen corn – $5

Hickory-smoked local greens – $5

Old-fashioned creamed potatoes – $5

Fresh field peas and snaps in sweet cream butter and dill – $6

Green cabbage with confited ham – $5

Revival mac n’ cheese -$6

Pan-roasted mushrooms with celery and lemon – $6

Local zucchini & summer squash pancake – $4

Geneva’s toasted vanilla poundcake with peach fool – $7

Butterscotch trifle with butter pecan cream – $7

Awesome chocolate cake – $7

Rustic peach and nectarine tart a la mode – $7

Lemon icebox pie – $7

The restaurant posted some drool-worthy photos of menu items on its Facebook page Tuesday, saying, “Practice makes perfect!” The photos include some cocktails and chocolate cakes. It also shows the Revival dining room and the staff taste-testing menu items.

Gillespie recently told Decaturish that Revival will be the kind of experience you’d get if you were a lucky guest at the Gillespie family table, one that is deeply personal. It will reflect his belief that one of the key ingredients of Southern culture is in dangerously short supply. He said he couldn’t think of a restaurant in Atlanta that honored the cooking traditions his grandmother kept. On Tuesday, Gillespie posted a photo on Instagram of his grandmother, calling her his muse.

My muse. I love you Granny!
