Sunday Brunch

Hominy Grill has grilled banana-bread french toast, need I say more (there is always a wait)

HUSK‘s menu changes every week and is fantastic if you can get in

High Cotton is right next door to the gallery (if there’s a wait there head to Blossoms, they are very similar and both great)

Butcher & Bee is a very hipster avocado toast kind of place

Rutladge Cab Company is a normal spot and one step up from a greasy spoon

Millers All Day on King Street is a great diner

Bars We Love

Gin Joint for a really great cocktail They wear suspenders and bowties and can make a killer gin fizz. 

HUSK‘s bar is in an old carriage house

Edmunds Oast is the best brew pub ever. A few minutes from downtown but well worth it for the food and 50 beers on tap

Bin 152 for a cheese plate and glass of wine. Let them pick it for you, you won’t be disappointed 

Tradd’s is right next door and very classy.

The Rooftop across the street has the best view in the City but we like The Dewberry the best but you need to make a reservation.
