last weekend tori was in town for some baby andrich festivities, and if anyone knows our family, they love going out to their favorite atlanta restaurants when in town. don’t get me wrong: birmingham has a buzzing food scene that is making waves these days, but we all have those must-have or must-try spots when we go to a new city or visit a familiar one.
well, last sunday we decided to take her to flower child, a new restaurant around lenox. i’d noticed it when we were eating at another restaurant near there last month, and after taking a look at the menu online, i knew it would be the perfect spot for a delicious lunch on a hot summer afternoon.
we arrived right at noon on a sunday, hoping to beat the out-pouring of church crowds. however, it seems that everyone else in buckhead had the same idea. our wait wasn’t too long, thank goodness, but the restaurant was already full of folks and looked like it had been busy since open. flower child is a “fast-casual” restaurant, where you order at the register and they bring your food to you. don’t worry, though, with a long line you’ll have plenty of time to decide on what to eat. plus, they had infused water available to help keep you hydrated in that lovely august heat.
to no one’s surprise, we all had trouble deciding what to have, as nearly everything on the menu made our mouths water! we eventually made our selections, paid, and found a table right next to their charming and colorful “choose happy” wall. if that doesn’t make you smile, i don’t know what will!
already excited about this new restaurant experience, our minds were blown when the bowls and plates started to arrive. i’m not going to go through each dish one-by-one (mainly because all you need to know is that everyone loved what they ordered), so what i will say is that everyone was in the clean plate club that afternoon. i kid you not when i say not a single morsel remained!
can you find me back at flower child again? most certainly! and most likely after a sweaty soulcycle class. further, do i recommend you yourself try flower child? absolutely! i already mentioned it to my friend marty and insisted he invite us when he wants to go. 🙂 if you are looking for fresh, fun fare that gets you excited to put aside your typical greasy meal out, please do yourself a favor and try flower child. and tell me when you go. cause imma wanna be there.
