Buckhead Barbecue Spot Serving Up Creative Takes on Traditional Favorites

ATLANTA (Feb. 27, 2017) – Smokebelly BBQ, already Atlanta’s leading destination for delicious, chef-crafted barbecue for lunch and dinner, hopes to become the city’s favorite spot for Sunday brunch, as well. The popular Buckhead restaurant is now offering a unique menu of brunch favorites, including a Bloody Mary bar and $4 mimosas and Bellinis, every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“Barbecue is a classic culinary tradition, and so is Sunday brunch,” says Smokebelly BBQ co-owner John Piemonte. “We are bringing these two institutions together and giving our customers a dining experience they haven’t had before.”

Adds executive chef Michelle Matlock, “Barbecue and brunch are both about comfort and tradition. What’s been fun for us is staying true to that, while applying the same creativity and passion that defines our approach to barbecue.”

The brunch menu is anchored by a lineup of inspired takes on timeless brunch favorites. Sweet potato pancakes are layered with sweet potato soufflé and topped with bourbon cinnamon crème ($12), while the smoked Benny, the restaurant’s twist on eggs Benedict, features poached, farm-fresh eggs over two grilled biscuit halves, served with beef brisket and chipotle hollandaise and a choice of brunch potatoes or creamy cheese grits ($13). French toast comes stuffed with bananas Foster, cream cheese and Myer’s rum, garnished with praline bacon crumbles ($11).

Other selections offer delicious versions of Southern staples and include:
·         Smokebelly traditional breakfast - two farm-fresh eggs served your way, a buttermilk biscuit, a grilled tomato wedge and brunch potatoes or creamy cheese grits with a choice of bacon, sausage, pulled pork or smoked brisket ($12)
·         Chicken and biscuits and gravy - golden fried chicken breast served over fresh-baked, grilled halves of a buttermilk biscuit and served with Smokebelly’s signature sausage gravy and two eggs made to order ($14)
·         Farmhouse biscuit sandwich - choice of sage sausage, Dijon, smoked Gouda and a fried egg; fried chicken and a fried egg; or bacon, pulled pork, pepperjack cheese and a fried egg ($11)
·         Cajun jambalaya omelet - stuffed with sautéed peppers and onions, spicy tasso ham and pepper jack cheese ($12)

Familiar favorites from Smokebelly’s regular menu of BBQ tapas starters (Brunswick stew, smoked brisket chili and smoked wings) and savory sandwiches (pulled pork, Angus beef brisket and the Smokebelly signature burger), round out the menu, along with  BBQ plates, combos, salads and sides.

It wouldn’t be Sunday brunch without an adult beverage, and Smokebelly doesn’t disappoint in this arena. The Tito’s Bloody Mary bar ($10) includes a selection of mixes and more than 20 seasonings and garnishes including pork rinds, bacon, pickles, pickled okra, jalapeños, hot sauce and more. Guests can also enjoy mimosas ($4) and Bellinis ($4), as well as signature sips like the Nice Pear (pisco, pear brandy, velvet falernum, lemon, bitters and Prosecco - $10) and the Log Cabin (apple brandy, pecan bitters, bourbon, maple syrup and Angostura bitters - $9). The beverage menu also features the Michelada (Bloody Mary mix combined with your choice of Miller Lite, Coors Lite, Bud Light or Dos Equis in a salt-rimmed glass - $6) and an assortment of coffee cocktails, wines and draft, bottled and canned beers.
