The Inman Park designer inspires a Midtown garden of eatin'

You'll likely start singing El DeBarge-style falsetto in the secret garden surroundings of Olmsted, the new executive-fresh lunch bistro with Shawn Bradley-tall windows, which's named for the guy they call "the father of American landscape architecture" (take that, Andrew Jackson Downing!), whose designs live on in ATL's own Inman Park and Druid Hills

Power up for lunches like the "The Chairman's" sirloin steak tartare w/ quail egg, a New England lobster roll w/ lemon mayo, or the brioche-bunned, house-blended chuck/ short rib brisket/ hanger steak burger w/ aged white cheddar they call The Daily Grind, also a conservative newspaper started by Eric Nies's side-abs. If you enjoy passing out at your desk in the afternoon like a good American, more-filling entrees include a roast Tanglewood Farms half-chicken, a chimichurri-doused NY strip, and spiced salmon w/ preserved lemon & olive couscous, while desserts count a spiced apple bourbon caramel trifle

Again, you're going back to work, so order most-to-all of a beer selection including Chimay Blue, Blanche De Bruxelles Belgian white, and Bitburger, which're ironically all way better than anything you can get at Quincy's.
