Atlanta There's nothing better than sitting down for a delicious brunch... except sitting down to five of them (obviously!), which is why we scoured the ATL and found five new Spring brunch items you've gotta try. Like, right now.
5 new Spring brunch items you must eat in Atlanta
PB&J French Toast Rolls
Take Texas toast, roll it out, smother it in PB&J, roll it up, deep fry it, and then cover it in sweetness, and you have the mightiest brunch dessert in the land. And because it’s so rich and sharable, it's the perfect way to say, “Thanks for spending the night” to that special someone whose name you’re trying to remember. Continue Reading
Watershed on Peachtree
This is the Southern Benedict remix you’ve been waiting for, or would've been, if you knew losing the bland English muffins in favor of artichokes and spinach, then tossing on some grits and Hollandaise, could taste like this.
Red Pepper Taqueria
Beef, smoked gouda, and poached egg with tomato or avocado is the hearty combination that provides a meaty start to your Saturday/Sunday, and gives you the manly cover you need to order that bottomless pink watermelon mimosa.
Big Sky Buckhead
You don’t always have the motor skills necessary to handle knives, forks, and especially napkins come brunch-time, so Big Sky is making everything from cured bacon, French toast chunks, and poached eggs finger-friendly by dropping it all in one bowl for you.
Cinnamon Donuts with Rhubarb-lager Jam
After last night, the gross, sugary filling of a chain-store donut will only give you (another) headache, so the fine folks at Cook Hall are giving you some scratch-made, and immensely more satisfying, takes on the boxed blandness you're used to, and a sauce to dip 'em in.
Helmed by a dude who was born in 1971 (get it?)... and who wanted to open a place where his friends and family could hang/ booze, this Irish-style drink spot's got more than just the usual taps (Sweetwater Red Hot Mama), and home-style eats like a Jack Daniel’s Smoked Beef Brisket Sandwich, and Shepherd’s Pie.
A James Beard award-winner, Watershed's a comfortable, soulful spot that's serving up locally sourced, down home, Southern grub.
Alcohol flows freely at Red Pepper Taqueria - there are hand-crafted margaritas, more than 100 tequilas, and draft tables where you can pour your own beer. And if you're in the mood for some food with your drinks, get a taco or other Mexican fare.
BSB is well-beyond the traditional Buckhead sports bar fare, with an impressive menu that includes fried coconut bread known as “donas”, which sounds like “donuts”, and tastes like really, really good donuts. They also steam that coconut bread into buns which host a very tight slider menu that goes great with affordable drafts.
