Brunch is a southern tradition, typically on Sunday afternoon when family and friends get together before the hustle and bustle of the week. But imagine a place where you can have good old fashion southern brunch cuisine every day of the week. Introducing Buttermilk Kitchen as a Buckhead staple restaurant for great southern food all made with local ingredients. This house turned restaurant is in the midst of the Northern part of Buckhead off of Roswell Road.
We frequent the Buckhead area for great shopping and restaurants. One place that had caught my eye during it's development was Chama Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse. I wasn't really sure what to expect as the restaurant has only been open for 2 months now.
Chama Gaucha is a Brazilian Steakhouse with locations in Houston, Chicago, San Antonio and now our beloved Atlanta. The decor is modern and warm with dark wood finishes and beautiful walk-in wine cellar as you enter the restaurant.
Ocean Prime opened in October 2011 and has been a gem of Buckhead ever since. The location used to be a quaint Jazz Restaurant and Lounge and has transformed to a high-end, elegant restaurant that has been awarded several “Best of” awards by local publications.
Our first experience at Ocean Prime was during a special birthday. The staff was welcoming and truly made the experience special. Our server greeted the celebrant with a glass of champagne to start our dinner and went the extra mile throughout the evening.
For those of you unaware, Buckhead is going through a major renovation. Lenox Square Mall just wrapped up their re-grand opening in July 2014 and Phipps is next up. The Streets of Buckhead area is officially in operation and more and more new retail shops and restaurants are flooding the Buckhead area.
One favorite that has been a part of Phipps Plaza for 2 years is Yebo, which is located to the left of the front valet of the mall. Pronounced “yeah-bo” meaning ‘yes’ is a chic depiction of South African cuisine with a modern and simplistic design. Yebo is a new venture from Justin Anthony of Atlanta’s widely recognized 10 Degrees South.
