Date Night introduces our new “Small Plates” feature where we write short reviews of restaurants visited when we are not on our usual hot Friday date.
Welcome to the East Cobb neighborhood, J. Christopher’s! The transformation from a hardware store to the restaurant took so long that we doubted it would ever happen.
Atlanta likes its Sunday Brunch, and JC’s knows how to do Sunday Brunch. We don’t usually do chains, but since it’s only 2 miles from our house, we get in a walk and a good meal. The establishment is bright and cheery and filled with lots of energetic employees. There is a Halloween costume contest going on and almost all of the workers join in on the fun. Our waitress did not get the memo–she was dressed as (wait for it) a J. Christopher’s server.
We order two of the J. Christopher’s “standards”. First up, the Blueberry Crunch Cakes, with blueberries and granola inside.
You can’t visit JC’s without having a skillet meal. We get the Spinach and Bacon Skillet.
There’s spinach, bacon, sun-dried tomato and jack cheese under the egg and fluffy biscuit. Hungry now?
The food is plentiful, perfectly prepared, and tastes great. The manager visits our table and works the room well. It’s busy, and we wish them many, many Saturdays and Sundays with “a ten minute wait” for tables.
