Atlanta sunday brunch/bloody mary's

scott. Jan 26, 2009 09:09 PM

I am heading to Atlanta next saturday for a concert that night, and I am dead set on waking up Sunday and enjoying some bloody mary's and a good brunch to cure my hangover and get ready for the superbowl. The show's at the Tabernacle and I am staying at the Embassy Suites by centennial olympic park, so somewhere in that area is preferred, though driving is an option. A great bloody mary is very crucial, but the food needs to be at least average. I would like somewhere that is a little more creative/innovative than your standard brunch fare but i am not going to be too picky... but the bloody mary must be good. Thanks.

    i like Einsteins alot.Atlanta is easy to get around on Sundays--my fav place is Chequers near Perimiter Mall.Great bar,and food--also have a flowing chocolate fountain for dipping strawberries,or whatever.Be careful walking around Centennial Park after dark if theres no crowd around.Id stay at the Westin if its not to expensive

      Thanks for the suggestions. Murphey's looks good but I am a sucker for a bloody mary bar, especially if there are lots of (good) hot sauces and pickled veggies. Hmm...decisions, decisions.

        Murphy's is always jammed on Sundays at that time of day. just a thought.

        Einsteins would be decent. South City Kitchen (Midtown) a little further north would be an option too. Murphy's in the Virginia-Highland area is nice. If you want something a little more relaxed you could try the Brewhouse in Little 5 Points, but I think the quality of things there has declined over the past several years.



        Enjoy the Disco Biscuits!

          I hope you sleep late. IIRC, restaurants don't start serving on Sunday until 12:30 or so.

            Correct -- at least for Fulton County. I'm not sure if it is a state or county law, but I would bet it is a state law.

            Try Einstein's...not too far from your hotel at all.
            They have a bloody mary bar!
