    100% favorite Sunday brunch in Atlanta. Loved being able to go into the kitchen for the buffet. Delicious food and just as good an atmosphere. And the menu changes daily. Can't wait to try dinner!

    The location of this restaurant makes absolutely no sense but the food is spot on. Wine list, whiskey list, and menu is tops beginning to end. Seems like a lot of "old money" patrons frequent.

    Drinks were good. Presentation was nice. Food...meh. Was either bland(blistered beans, ribs & soft shell crab) or overly salted(pork shoulder). So many other ATL restaurants do this concept better.
