We will visit ATL in the next few weeks. I want a reasonable (I am taking my ~70 yr old mother...a non-foodie but she will try anything) lunch before we visit the High. Escorpion looks decent, but I would appreciate any input. Thanks much.

  1. It's ok. Pretty spicy as well. I had better tacos on Buford Highway. My recommendation would be Empire State South as it is pretty much right at the High.

      Thank you. I should have mentioned that we will probably dine on Saturday. ESS does brunch but the menu offers very little outside of "brunchy" dishes. We will not get into town until close to noon...and after a 3-4 hr drive, we will probably need something different than brunch. I had looked at ESS and it looks amazing otherwise.

    2. There is an excellent Thai restaurant called Tamarind Seed that is located on 14th and Peachtree, very close to the High. I would check to see if they are open for lunch on Saturday, however.
