Einstein's is a full-service restaurant popular for brunch in the Midtown area of Atlanta, GA. Keith and I stopped here to fill up before spending the day at Music Midtown, a music festival taking place a couple blocks away in Piedmont Park. We sat outside on the patio to enjoy our brunch, along with a crowd of other festival goers and locals looking to enjoy a mimosa.

Gunshow in Atlanta, GA is chef Kevin Gillespie’s restaurant (of Top Chef fame) that offers a bold, new take on the traditional dining experience. Inspired by Brazilian churrascaria-style dining and Chinese dim sum, Gillespie combined the two for a decidedly fun and delicious result. Dishes are presented on rolling carts and trays to diners at their tables where they can then choose what to order. Pricing is a la carte and the menu options change weekly, if not daily.
