Atlanta Hotspot: Rosebud – Local Folks / Kind Flavors
Rosebud Atlanta: Located in Morningside, just outside of Virginia Highlands, this popular eatery is a favorite among locals who are looking for fresh, local fare at a really great price with impeccable service. Named after Jerry Garcia’s famed guitar, Rosebud serves a creative fare of American cuisine with a definite touch of Southern inspiration and offers guests a wide selection of reinvented classics. Chef/Owner Ron Eyester picks all fruit and vegetables by hand from local farmers at the Morningside Farmers Market. Meats and fish are never frozen and delivered by boutique vendors (like the esteemed Fresh Fish Distributer Foley Fish) from all across the country. You can really taste the difference in each of his marvelous creations!
journeyPod was lucky enough to sample both the Monday Brunch Menu as well as the regular menu (which changes seasonally). We highly recommend the “Egg-roll”, Warm Mushroom & Country Ham Bruschetta and the (very large portion) of Wild Georgia Shrimp & Grits (served with andouille sausage, sweet onion, san marzano tomatoes & local grits). For dessert we suggest the Brown Butter & Sea Salt Cookies accompanied by their ‘house-special’ Lakehouse Mountain Blend Coffee.
Rosebud’s venue is in itself quite a famous establishment. For over 30 years, Atlantans have been dining within these brick walls – Chef Eyester will share some very interesting stories with you! Book your next party or anniversary in the private wine room which accommodates 12 people. The semi-private dining room seats 36 people comfortably and is furnished with pull across curtains that will certainly enhance the intimacy of your event. Rosebud allows you the opportunity to personally tailor a menu to suit your taste and truly delivers a unique and very memorable experience to all your guests.
Chef Ron Eyester readily embraces the creative aspects of cooking and takes pride in being labeled the “Innovator of the Year” by the Georgia Restaurant Association as well as serving as an ambassador for local growers and products. Ron Eyester shares his ideas, menus and thoughts on his weekly blog and has a very active following on Twitter, where he is known as the “Angry Chef”. We look forward to his latest venture The Family Dog (named after one of the first venues the Grateful Dead performed at) set to open in March/April 2011 which will serve as everyone’s ” local watering hole”.
To quote Jerry Garcia “You do not merely want to be considered just the best of the best. You want to be considered the only ones who do what you do.” Make the time to visit Rosebud SOON and find out for yourself.
