Location: Right off of the street and in the same plaza as Yogli Mogli. Parking is a bit tight and they do not offer much parking space, so I recommend finding a spot on the side of the street and then walking. Atmosphere: My friend and I sat on the patio, which was nice and offered views onto the street. It also has a warm and rustic vibe. When you first walk into the restaurant I was greeted by a very friendly host who asked if we wanted to either sit inside or outside. He then led us to our table which was very clean and simple. The inside of the restaurant features a wall of wine options that you can choose from and also features desserts that I think you can pick up for togo. Murphy’s has a very casual laid back atmosphere that transports you to a Cali winery. Food/Beverages: We ordered the mimosas which were good because how can you really butcher a mimosa (juice & champagne)? I ordered the quinoa squash with the artichokes as an appetizer and a side of their mac and cheese. My lovely friend ordered their special, which was grilled scallops over angel hair pasta and tossed in a pesto sauce. The artichokes were very good because they were grilled and served with a delicious lemon aioli of some sort. I LOVE artichokes and boy, they did this artichoke justice. The quinoa squash was also delicious and perfectly seasoned. Many places usually offer bland vegetable entrees, but Murphy’s seasoned this entree to perfection. It was surprisingly good. The thing that stole my heart was actually the mac and cheese. I love mac and cheese and this was some good ole mac and cheese. I think they used some sort of white cheddar and truffle oil, which complemented the cheese very nicely. I also loved the fact that they used a thicker type of pasta in order to catch every drop of their delicious cheese sauce. If you do not thick that the shape of the pasta affects how a dish tastes, then you my friend need to try their mac and cheese. It was goooooood. My friend’s scallop pesto pasta was also very flavorful, light and filling. The pesto sauce was divine and she raved about the perfection that the scallops were cooked to.Service: Our server was very attentive to us and made sure that we had everything we needed. Overall: Murphy’s is a great place for a unique spin on traditional american food. Everything was seasoned to my liking and I will definitely be back to try some of their other offerings. Parking is a bit of a pain, but a bit of walking is not all that bad. I am surprised that I haven’t heard about this gem in Virginia Highland’s until now.
MidCity Cafe is an extraordinary spot amid the day to do work (free WiFi), observe a few games, or meet with a companion/customer. They have different TVs more often than not playing some sort of games and the staff is cordial and open to changing the channels when inquired. The sustenance is not regular bar nourishment, MidCity offers an assortment of soups, servings of mixed greens, and sandwiches and the quality is the thing that you would expect of some other kind of bar, reasonable. They have an extremely decent open air yard with outside warmers for those crisp evenings. It is likewise puppy benevolent and they have open air outlets so you could work outside and charge your gadgets. Around evening time the bar has an incredible domain. Continually playing awesome music running from a wide range of classifications and for the electronic music fan they get numerous DJs amid the weekends so watch out for their occasions. The group here is dependably exceptionally social, benevolent, and entirely fun! You'll frequently discover individuals moving inside, chuckling at the bar, or having a smoke and associating outside. The staff here are well disposed, snappy, and aware. They've generally treated me well and I've generally seen them be extremely quiet. General I would very prescribe this spot!
This is a quaint family owned cafe in the bottom floor of my office building. If you turn onto Glenridge Point Pkwy, there are two office buildings, this place is around the back of the building on the left side of the road. In this area, there are few lunch options despite a lot of office buildings around. Bon Appetit has two home cooked lunch entree options each day, and about 6-8 different sides. Some of my favorites are their Sesame Chicken, Meatloaf, and Salsbury Steak. The pricing is very affordable. They also have a varied selection of items you can order off the menu anytime. My favorites include Philly Cheesesteak(or chicken philly), Chicken Quesadilla, and their burgers. They also serve breakfast every morning, my with a variety of breakfast options available. The ownership is very friendly, and remembers the way I like my food prepared(bacon crispy, what veggies on top, etc.) I just noticed there had not been any reviews, and for anyone else in the area that struggles to find places to grab a quick bite for lunch that offers variety and affordable pricing I would definitely recommend giving Bon Appetit a try!
The design and location are more interesting than the menu. Frankly, the brunch menu is too snooty for me, and it includes minor Southern delicacies. I started with the pimento cheese; it's savory, and the topped bacon is well incorporated, but it's slightly too smokey. My meal was the griddled biscuit in which was disappointing. The sausage in the biscuit was very spam-like. It had the same look and consistency as cooked spam. The bacon was a hard, thick slice of what tasted like cooking oil. The biscuit was somewhat dry but had a good texture. The good in this conjunction was the fig and cheese had a lot of flavors! The potatoes were well done as well which I prefer. I did not enjoy my cocktail; there was too much grapefruit in my Venetian Spritzer, so it was very sour and unpleasant. The silver lining is the staff is helpful, and the outdoor patio is beautiful! I'd return if a regular menu item is added. I hope waffles is in the near future.
This place was pretty good. Where they seated us, however, was not what we were expecting. Although they had at least 6 other empty two person tables that did not say reserved, they sat us at the back or the restaurant where all the servers had to squeeze by our feet to take the food back to the bus station. We were by a tarp that covered their firewood. Our backs were almost touching the window display of another shop behind us. Their cocktails were delicious and the complimentary picked and Creme fraise was a nice touch. The charcuterie was adequate, although not the best I've ever had. The portion was large, however. The dessert was awful. As in, we each took a bite and put our forks down. The waitress didn't seem to notice... the apple tarts was burnt to a crisp on the bottom and the ice cream flavor was olive oil... what? They didn't mention that on the menu. I'd go back, but I'd ask to sit somewhere else and not order the dessert again.
I went with a friend to eat here after hearing about it. The inside of the restaurant is cozy with long communal tables that offer casual family style seating. Their outside seating looked lovely as well and when you're in Buckhead, it is a nice retreat from all of the hectic cars and people. The menu is seasonal and features many unique ingredients. I opted for the watermelon salad, gazpacho, house cut fries, and agnolotti. My friend decided on the heirloom tomato and peaches salad, and gnocchi. The food came out quickly and before we knew it, it was a beautiful array of plates and artworks. Each plate was carefully and beautifully made into edible artworks that were almost too pretty to eat. We ended up sharing everything and my top favorites were the agnolotti pasta, gazpacho, and watermelon salad. The food here is definitely different than many other restaurants and you should definitely give it a try!
