Long before I moved out of my parents house, Sunday dinners were a staple in our family tradition and they still are.
Although they no longer occur as frequently as I'd like, Sunday dinners are still essential to our core. It's a time of fellowship, catching up, and love. We share good news, bad news, shocking news - basically all the tea we can spill in a public setting.
This particular Sunday, I received an e-mail from my mother with an OpenTable invite to BRIO Tuscan Grille with a reservation time of 5:00PM. I know what you're thinking, "how impersonal for her to send an OpenTable invite", or "how fancy..." well, you would have to know my mother for that explanation. But just between us, it has a lot to do with her being frugal, and earning OpenTable points towards a free meal for every reservation that's followed through.
Anyway, the food was AMAZING! I typically can never find an authentically Italian menu that fuses with the American palette but this was perfect. I enjoyed the Lobster Bisque, which was packed full of fresh lobster chunks, and a smooth and creamy soup blend. I also indulged in a New York strip steak, with seasoned potatoes to compliment. I completed my meal with a fulfilling portion of Creme Brûlée, which may have been more creme than brulee - which was still palatable.
Check out my photos from Sunday's dinner, and be sure to stop by BRIO on Peachtree, if you're ever in Atlanta and in the mood for a Tuscan getaway.
