review: southern art, buckhead

Continuing in my tradition of mastering the art of blog food, I recently had brunch at Southern Art, located in the Intercontinental Hotel in Buckhead. Technically, I ate breakfast, but I'm beginning to see the merits of enjoying a hotel breakfast when you're not staying in a hotel. There are a few guarantees: the service, decor, and the lack of an atmosphere where you wonder if you're eating breakfast or trying to have a conversation at a baseball game.


Run by Art Smith of Oprah fame, one of the restaurant's greatest features is the Bourbon Bar. I normally have no problems with morning libations, but hard liquor felt a bit excessive before noon. Another night, perhaps?


All in all, a solid brunch choice and a great place to dress up for a gab session with your girlfriends. It's also probably the only place in Atlanta where you could delude yourself into playing out a scene from "Sex and the City." (I call Carrie.)
