There has been a debate centered around Sundays. Is it the beginning of the week or the end of the weekend? No matter which side of the table you are on, Sunday Suppers are a gentle nod toward the gathering of family, whether blood-related or not. We picked out a few spots with family-style feastings for the table to enjoy.
Cakes & Ale
155 Sycamore Road, Decatur
Chef Billy Allin tries to utilize ingredients from the Cakes & Ale garden to inspire the menu each week. This time of year, expect to find mushrooms and sunchokes on the plate. Allin always does a good job of serving seafood that you wouldn’t normally find at the fish counter, such as tilefish or triggerfish.
1198 Howell Mill Road, Atlanta
Pass around a basket of steaming biscuits and slop on that apple butter because this is the South. Chef Ford Fry’s meat and three dinner draws on comfort foods, like crispy Louisiana catfish and creamy mashed potatoes with Georgia’s own Vidalia onions. Priced at $24 per person, diners choose from five meats and nine home-style vegetables.
The Shed at Glenwood
475 Bill Kennedy Way, Atlanta
Fried or smoked, mixed greens or meaty sausage? For $25 per person, diners choose their favorite of two options out of a three-course meal. Chef Richards selects his ingredients from the farmer’s markets, so each week is a surprise, but you can always guarantee it packs local flavor.
659 Auburn Avenue, Atlanta
Come here for the ambience, whether inside under the high ceilinged- warehouse or on the patio under the stars, its better than the dinner table at home. True to Chef Scott Serpas’ Louisiana roots, helpings of seafood gumbo and pork belly are served communal style for $24 per person.
