On my quest to find interesting places to brunch in Atlanta, an invitation to Ormsby’s located in Westside Provisions District in West Midtown made its way into my inbox. I’d heard of the restaurant and had yet to make my way there. They have recently started serving brunch, so I quickly accepted the invite and made my way to the restaurant with my friend Kina in tow.

To kick off my birthday, which was October 16th :), I gathered a couple of girlfriends, Jehan from Jehan Can Cook and Alexis, for a pre-birthday brunch at Lure in Midtown. Lure has been on my list for some time and I thought brunch would be the perfect way to see what they had to offer, since we all know that I am on the hunt for great brunch offerings in the city.

In addition to visiting Lure, I also had the opportunity to test drive the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage for a week. More about that after brunch…

Brunch in Atlanta: The Cockentrice

Krog Street Market is one of Atlanta’s newest foodie hubs. It’s bustling with people looking for the best thing in the Market to eat. If you watch the Travel Channel at all (I’m pretty obsessed), Krog Street reminds me of those markets you see in Asia that are full with vendors all selling their one of a kind dishes. As I comb the City for new and interesting places to brunch, I was recently invited to check out the Cockentrice. I am quite the carnivore, so as I reviewed the website to see what made this restaurant different I was happy to see that the restaurant in fact, offers something quite unique.

The Cockentrice is a new American charcuterie restaurant and is owned and led by Executive Chef Kevin Ouzts from The Spotted Trotter. Cockentrice has launched its weekend brunch that I think is not only a meat lover’s dream, but is the perfect way to recover after an awesome Friday or Saturday night. Erica from A Taste Of Our City and her hubby Corey, were shipping off to Thailand in a couple of day’s, so I thought brunch would be the perfect opportunity for her and I to catch up before the big adventure. Let’s take a peek at what we had… Continue reading

Brunching at Pijiu Belly in West Midtown Atlanta

Atlantans may not do happy hours as much as we should, but we definitely brunch! Me and my other fellow foodie besties got together on a steaming hot Sunday to enjoy food and mimosas at Pijiu Belly located in what is now being called West Midtown. I am always on the hunt for restaurants with interesting brunch menus and we all know, I’m pretty much over the standard eggs benedict, fried chicken and waffles and shrimp and grits. Pijiu Belly definitely offers a menu that is off the beaten path and I am always here for that!

BBQ for brunch at Bone Lick BBQ

Brunch has become an institution in Atlanta with almost every restaurant in the City serving it’s variation. When I heard about Bone Lick BBQ in West Midtown serving up a bbq brunch I knew it was something I needed to check out immediately. Before I head to any restaurant it is important that I check out the menu and prices. Brunch at Bone Lick is off the beaten path and the prices are very reasonable. All positive points in my book. With typical brunch favorites like french toast, I found it interesting that they also have items like the Pork ‘N Grits made with pork cheeks, bacon, served over grits and topped with a tasso ham gravy.

On this newest food expedition Erica from A Taste Of Our City tagged along to see what we could find out about this bbq brunch.
