Just right off of West Peachtree St. in walking distance to Georgia Tech, the Fox, Cavalia, the Cheetah, nightclubs and bars, Briza Restaurant has the whole package. With a great location and fantastic mouth watering food why wouldn't you stop in?!?! I believe it was another restaurant before but guess it did not last but Briza has got it! The gorgeous space and decor will blow you away. The adorable date night circular booths and large party long tables welcomes any event one could celebrate! I cannot wait for the rooftop to open in the Spring, it looks like a late night Miami feel hang out but it could also do as a city wedding reception! Very functional restaurant, bar and lounge space and I cannot wait to go back! Now that I have talked up the space lets get to the FOOD. I first started off with something that sounded interesting and I had to try..grilled calamari? It was delicious, not fried but grilled with a vinaigrette flavoring. For my entree it was a tough decision, between the shrooms and grits or the pork chop, and I chose the meat! The brussel sprouts that came with the pork chops were unreal with a nice crunch. And those dumplings.. O-M-G to ddiiieee for. I would have had a whole plate of those. Sweet potato and onion dumplings?! Very scrumptious dishes and I enjoyed my dinner with a lovely glass of pinot nior selected by my very knowledgable server. He helped me through the whole menu and specified each dish tastefully and in all honesty I cannot wait to go back and next time I think I'll try the shroom and grits! YOU MUST TRY THIS RESTAURANT!
