KEVIN GILLESPIE’S REVIVAL KICKS OFF 2017 WITH BRUNCH DEBUT
Based on tasty feedback from Decatur diners, downhome Sunday menu features favorites
from executive chef Andreas Müller
ATLANTA (Dec. 28, 2016) – Revival chef/owner Kevin Gillespie and executive chef Andreas Müller have a delicious new beginning in store for diners in 2017. Starting Jan. 8, Sunday brunch will be added to the popular Decatur dining destination’s menu.
“As a kid, I always looked forward to family breakfasts on the weekend,” says Gillespie. “It was a chance to slow down, make family favorites that we were too busy to cook on weekdays and enjoy each other’s company. We want to replicate that experience for our Sunday guests.”
Revival’s brunch menu is still in the testing phase but cherished Gillespie family recipes and favorites from Müller like the Closed-on-Sunday chicken sandwich and griddled meatloaf sandwich with aged cheddar on a caramelized onion roll have landed a spot the menu. Other Southern classics you might find include scrambled egg and crêpe casserole with truffle mornay; smoked ham and onion breakfast strata; breakfast plate with two eggs, grits, sausage, bacon and biscuits; and catfish bites over grits with gravy.
Over the past year, Müller has been “road-testing” recipes with brunch guests up the street at Eddie’s Attic. “As we’re developing our menu, Eddie’s Attic essentially served as a test kitchen for us where we were able to enjoy a dialogue with diners and roll out various dishes,” says Müller. “The feedback allows us to hit the ground with an entire brunch menu of home runs.”
Starting Jan. 8, Revival brunch is available on Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The restaurant also serves dinner Wednesday through Sunday beginning at 5 p.m. Revival is located at 129 Church Street in Decatur. Reservations are accepted but not required and can be made online or by calling 470-225-6770. Additional information can be found at revivaldecatur.com.
