Buttermilk Kitchen, a new restaurant by Suzanne Vizethann, will offer Atlantans another Southern-with-a-twist breakfast and lunch option in the Chastain Park area. Vizethann, of The Hungry Peach and pop-up BYOBakeshop, plans to open Buttermilk later this month.
According to a press release, “The restaurant is distinguished by its kitchen, where most everything is made in-house from scratch, paying tribute to its name, ‘Buttermilk,’ which refers to the liquid utilized after butter is churned; carrying out the philosophy of letting nothing go to waste.”
Vizethann, winner on the Food Network competitive cooking show “Chopped,” will serve breakfast and lunch seven days a week and fried chicken on Tuesday evenings beginning Oct. 22.
The restaurant will use local and sustainable ingredients, educating customers about sourcing and preparation methods along the way. Apparently Vizethann will “be running an open kitchen, where guests are encouraged to walk through and see what the chefs are up to.”
Southern fare will get the Vizethann treatment, with both new and popular dishes from The Hungry Peach appearing on the menu. Your meal might include a pork belly BLT, blueberry cobbler stuffed pancakes, eggs benedict with country ham and red-eye hollandaise, and sous vide flank steak and eggs.
Buttermilk Kitchen will occupy the former Cafe at Pharr space, remade into a rustic Southern haunt with original white brick walls, beams and hardwood floors.
7 a.m. – 4 p.m. Mondays-Fridays, and 6-9 p.m. Tuesdays. 4225 Roswell Road, Atlanta
