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.
My girlfriend and I came here for lunch. We started off with the layered fried green tomtoes was accompanied by soft goat cheese, minced tomatoes, and topped with a sticky balsalmic glaze. I ordered the sweet potatoe tots and the burger of the month, breaded bison buffalo burger with buffalo sauce and blue cheese crumbles. Unaware that it was breaded, and not really thrilled with the breaded burger, I asked to send it back. Our server pleasantly had it replaced with the same dressed burger (w/o breading), which had the perfect amount of sauce and cheese. My girlfriend ordered the the turkey burger and crisp fries. The restaurant was fairly busy, but our food took a very long time to get to our tables (almost an hour). My sweet potatoe tots also seemed like they had been sitting out of the heat for a while, which made them somewhat soggy. Our server was extremely nice and the assisted general manager visited our table and later took my burger off my check, which I was not expecting. The restaurant is kid friendly, has a well stocked bar, can sit a large a small group and does offer WiFi. They offer gluten free, vegetarian, entrees, sandwiches, starters, salads, soups, and specially crafted milkshakes. menu items. Their burgers consist of bison, angus beef, ground chuck, chicken, fish, turkey, and vegetables.
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.
