My girlfriend and I came here for lunch. We started off with the layered fried green tomtoes was accompanied by soft goat cheese, minced tomatoes, and topped with a sticky balsalmic glaze. I ordered the sweet potatoe tots and the burger of the month, breaded bison buffalo burger with buffalo sauce and blue cheese crumbles. Unaware that it was breaded, and not really thrilled with the breaded burger, I asked to send it back. Our server pleasantly had it replaced with the same dressed burger (w/o breading), which had the perfect amount of sauce and cheese. My girlfriend ordered the the turkey burger and crisp fries. The restaurant was fairly busy, but our food took a very long time to get to our tables (almost an hour). My sweet potatoe tots also seemed like they had been sitting out of the heat for a while, which made them somewhat soggy. Our server was extremely nice and the assisted general manager visited our table and later took my burger off my check, which I was not expecting. The restaurant is kid friendly, has a well stocked bar, can sit a large a small group and does offer WiFi. They offer gluten free, vegetarian, entrees, sandwiches, starters, salads, soups, and specially crafted milkshakes. menu items. Their burgers consist of bison, angus beef, ground chuck, chicken, fish, turkey, and vegetables.
I recently visited BLT for brunch and it was not the best experience. Our server was not in the best mood and seemed to be quite annoyed. The restaurant was pretty much empty as there was only 1 other table and they were already done with their meal. Although the restaurant was empty we waited 30 mins before our food arrived. Unfortunately my food was not hot at all. The BLT popover was served with home fries and what was supposed to be field greens but instead it was iceberg lettuce which was brown. I asked the server prior to ordering if the dish came with home fries and he said no which was the reason I ordered the hand cut fries which were $9 by the way. Once he brought the food to the table he said "oh yea your popover came with home fries...your welcome". I was stunned to say the least. I mentioned to him that he seems to have an attitude and he proceeded to say "that is just his personality". Considering the extravagant prices for brunch I expected service and food to be better.
5Church is awesome, y'all! I recently visited for dinner on a Thursday night. We started off with a round of cocktails. The Viper is true to its name. I loved the blend of tequila, cucumber, and cayenne pepper. For a starter, we noshed on the tuna tartare and pastrami-cured hamachi (think sushi-grade fish thinly sliced and topped with a radish garnish). Both were delicious. We then had the charred octopus, which was perfect. For entrees, we shared a few of the main courses including the filet with mashed potatoes (classic) and a vegetarian special: mushroom sausage. I'd never had anything like that before which wasn't tofu and I was pleasantly surprised. With our meal, our server helped us pick out a lovely bottle of pinot noir. Service was great. The whole staff at 5Church Atlanta aims to please. Also, 5Church just started lunch service, so I'll have to get back down there to see what's on the menu. I highly recommend this place - it's as good as it gets in Midtown ATL.
Came here for a COT Thursday networking event. The ambiance is really awesome and the decor is very swanky with a modern retro twist. The catered freshly chef prepared food was a little too artistic for the crowd I was with though. Many people at the event had a hard time trying some of the exotic chef inspired dishes, which I thought were very unique and tasty. The polite and attentaive servers and bartenders constantly cleared empty dishes/glasses and inquired to replenish patrons with new drinks. The downstairs is not adequately sound isolated causing the room to get very loud from the echos of people talking. The outside bar/lounge area supplies the perfect view of Midtown. I am definitely looking forward to trying the food and cocktails at the actual upstairs restaurant.
I had really high hopes for 5Church. Cool location, awesome decor and an interesting menu. After having been twice, now, though, I can't say I'll be going back.The food is average - good, but the portions are so small for what you're paying for. I'm not trying to spend a fortune on an appetizer and salad. They also still have a few things to work out in the kitchen - they brought us a vegan dish with bacon on it, for instance. I'm hoping they can expand the lunch menu to be comparable to their other locations - the one now is super limiting. Hopefully they are still working out kinks and will be able to show us a better experience next time.
This place is where Korean and Mexican food meet. It is a most try if you're ever on this side of town. I can truly say that I had the best Shrimp taco that I have ever had in my life here. It was amazing and is now my go to dish. The bibim-bop is another one of my favorites. When entering the restaurant you walk up to the counter and place your order then you can have a seat outside or inside. Once your food is ready someone will bring it out to you. The margarita was nice and strong which is a plus for me. I enjoy sitting outside with my tacos and margaritas after a long day at work. This also a great spot to meet up and watch the game.
Great alternative to fast food, in the heart of Buckhead! It's like a Mediterranean Chipotle, but healthier. The concept is very simple yet genius: Pick your base (leafy greens/grains/sandwich bread), choose your protein (chicken/shrimp/portobello), and pile on your favorite toppings. It's a great way to sneak veggies and flavor into your meal, without going over your calorie count for the day (if you're counting those). This place is open for lunch and dinner, and each meal comes with the tastiest sweet potato chips: They're thin and savory and delicious! More details here: http://bit.ly/1twyZm4
This is always my go to spot after a good workout. The food here is always fresh and is always delicious. I try not to order the same thing when I go , but the almond chicken skewers are amazing! This is a dish packed with protein.They have great salads with ten different proteins choices to add on. The panini sandwich are also a great choice. You can't really go wrong here. The staff is friendly and efficient That's one of the things that I love about this place is that I'm in and out. You do have to park in a garage so, don't forget to get your ticket so, that the cost is taken care of.
Being new to Atlanta I've been told of how great the Varsity was , but when I tried them it wasn't what I thought it would be. Now don't get me wrong the hot dogs weren't bad , but from the talk of the town.... I thought they would be better. I had a slaw dog and a chili dog. The chili dog was a little over priced if you asked me . The team moved the line quickly, but I wouldn't say that they gave me Chick-fil-a type customer service ( best customer service at a fast food restaurant). I hear that back in the day it was better ,so try it for yourself and then you be the judge.
If you love music and you love brunch then this is the place for you. Be sure to make reservations a week in advance if you want a table on Saturday. If not be sure to get there at 11am because reservations don't start till 12. I had the Jerk chicken and waffles which were great. I'm from Florida so the jerk could have had a little more heat, but those pineapple waffles were amazing. This is a great place to meet friends or just a great date night spot. Be sure to try the red snapper. You have to pay to park which sucks, but this is Atlanta.
