Nestled in the heart of Midtown is the Atlanta icon of Einstein’s. Part of the Metrotainment Group of restaurants, Einstein’s does NOT disappoint.
From our arrival at the valet parking, Einstein’s was a smooth an easy time for our afternoon Sunday brunch. If the weather had been better we may have enjoyed our meal on the large patio, but as it was we settled into a cozy booth.
We always try to do call ahead or make reservations if the restaurant will accept them. I urge diners to try this consistently as it can save you lots of time and certainly add enjoyment to the meal. By doing so, our hostess was able to seat us right away while other diners who arrived about the same time waited for 20-30 minutes.
Something simple at the beginning of our meal was a true delight and a great start to our brunch! The bread, more accurately, the bakery items were very delicious and nutty with a sweetness that did not make one feel over indulgent.
Melanie ordered a made-to-0rder omelet with breakfast potatoes and grits for her sides. I chose the Crab Meat omelet with Hollandaise sauce (oh so delisch! ) with a side of chicken sausage.
The grits STOLE the show! OMG, that stuff is SO good! Not to be outdone, the chicken sausage was not far behind. A little spicy (which I really dig) but far too spicy for Miss Melanie.
The Crab Meat Omelet was so, so good I’m not sure whether I can even speak of it without melting. And the Hollandaise, my pairing not theirs, was awesome. I chose to bypass the jalapenos which normally comes with this dish since I was still nursing a cold and not quite feeling up to it.
The only thing that can make a great meal like this better is live music. The Sadler Jazz Duo was playing jazz in the bar and they were quite wonderful. I really liked the iPad being used for his music! And yes, they play there every Sunday for your entertainment.
I should also mention that we have not made postings for almost nine months. Yes, we’ve still been eating, but I just had a lot of stuff on my plate (pun intended). Hopefully, with my new years resolution of continuing to provide fine reviews for Atlanta diners, our readers will continue to enjoy our blog for many years to come.
