Last Sunday I celebrated my birthday with my friend Alexandria by having brunch at Livingston Restaurant in Atlanta. Alexandria suggested this restaurant and we were both excited to try a new restaurant (for us) in the city. I actually pass by Livingston all the time and it's near the Fox Theatre, a major landmark in Atlanta. They offer brunch, lunch, and dinner and all of the menus look so delicious!
I love a restaurant with some history, and this place is full of history. It's named for Livingston Mims, a former Atlanta mayor who used to live where the restaurant exists today. This restaurant and another restaurant, Mims, are both part of the famous Georgian Terrace Hotel. The interior decorating of this restaurant is phenomenal and truly a blend of classic and modern southern pieces. Alexandria and I both agreed that it would be the perfect place to host a "Gatsby Style" party in Atlanta.
We started our meal with these sweet potato donuts. I mean, after reading that item it was hard not to order them! And they normally come with bacon on top, but we opted out of that. They were still so delicious and stayed true to the classic sweet potato flavor.
I ordered the French toast with a side of grits, both very tasty! I'm super picky about my French toast and I don't like when it tastes too eggy or soggy, and this toast was cooked to perfection! The grits also had a great seasoning and were thick, yet creamy.
And Alexandria ordered the lobster crepe. She said it tasted great and was very filling!
The staff was super sweet and brought out this dessert for my birthday!
See, it's literally across the street from the Fox Theatre - perfect place to go before or after a show. I'm sure the outdoor seating with the view of Peachtree Street is amazing during warm months!
I'm so grateful that my sweet friend treated me to this delicious and classy birthday brunch! Thanks, Dria! :)
