Is Pimento Cheese Now "It"?

I'm seeing a lot of pimento cheese on menus these days.

Just off the top of my head ... Au Fond, Sweet Grass, Trolley Stop Market, and Felicia Suzanne's.

Last weekend, I had deep-fried pimento cheese served with pepper jelly at Relish in Atlanta. (We also tried Relish's bread pudding made with Krispy Kreme donuts)


Very good ... but I prefer the less-fussy version at Holiday Ham.

In any event, I'm hoping to put together a small "taste-off" to take advantage of this pimento cheese frenzy. Which local versions do you think should be among the contenders?
