The Southern Gentleman
Is it a BLT or a Reuben? Both? Neither? This sandwich bridges chef Danilo Q. Meyers's childhood in Brooklyn to his present brightening up a whiskey gastropub. His gift to Atlanta is this delicious chimera, a stack of buttermilk-fried green tomatoes on marbled rye with hot sauce, bourbon bacon jam, shoulder bacon, Swiss cheese, smoked pastrami, smoked cabbage, and mustard.
Those who think chivalry is dead must have never become acquainted with The Southern Gentleman in Buckhead. Rather than holding a door open for you or offering you a coat when you get cold, howevér, The Southern Gentleman treats your tastebuds with respect. On Saturdays and Sundays, the Buckhead restaurant switches things up for brunch, and the menu is overflowing with great choices, from the Buttermilk Fried Chicken (served with creamed leeks, herb roasted potatoes, carrots, and hot honey) to the delectable Brioche French Toast (served with macerated berries, lemon curd, powdered sugar, & whipped cream). And as with any great weekend brunch menu, The Southern Gentleman’s drinks—from cocktails to seasonal brunch punches—are just as varied as its food options.
