I went to 10th & Piedmont for the first time November 28th, 2013 for their first annual Thanksgiving buffet. I learned that they opened end of November 2012 so 2013 was their first year to have the Thanksgiving event, but they will continue to have it be an annual soiree. The works were laid out for their first buffet. Items such as mixed green salad, butternut squash soup, red beets and feta cheese, mac and cheese, potato au gratin, pork loin, turkey with white mushroom cream sauce, green beans, cornbread muffin... just to name a few! It was a Thanksgiving-lovers heaven!
The food was well prepared on a mass scale. Turkey was cooked well and not super dry, which was how I was expecting it. Cornbread muffins were divine and mac and cheese was yummy!
My server, Chris, was super friendly and hilarous! Atmosphere and music was live (they played Britney Spears, TLC, old school hip hop and jazz all on the same playlist). Food was overly satisfying. 4 1/2 diamonds!
Turkey does have the makings of a natural sedative in it, an amino acid called tryptophan. Tryptophan is an essential amino acid, meaning that the body can't manufacture it. The body has to get tryptophan and other essential amino acids from food. Tryptophan helps the body produce the B-vitamin niacin, which, in turn, helps the body produce serotonin, a remarkable chemical that acts as a calming agent in the brain and plays a key role in sleep. So you might think that if you eat a lot of turkey, your body would produce more serotonin and you would feel calm and want a nap.
