“Buttermilk Kitchen is a breakfast and lunch concept created by chef Suzanne Vizethann. Buttermilk’s mission is to nurture people through food by use of sustainable, local ingredients. A kitchen where most everything is made in-house from scratch, paying tribute to its name, “Buttermilk,” which refers to the liquid utilized after butter was churned; carrying out the philosophy of letting nothing go to waste.”
Buttermilk Kitchen is located at 4225 Roswell Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30342. This was my first time having breakfast at Buttermilk Kitchen and the food definitely lived up to its reputation. We showed up on Saturday morning at 9:30 and lucked out by getting in pretty quickly. I think we arrived in between the early breakfast eaters and those folks showing up a little bit later for brunch. I mention this because when I went back on another Saturday at 9:30, there was already a line of folks waiting to get in the door. Even with the long line, I think we waited for about 20-minutes and once again the food was worth it! Parking is a bit of a challenge. On the restaurant property space is limited. You can park at locations around the restaurant but do so at your own risk. If you park in a spot other than what’s been approved, you’ll likely find your dining experience capped off with a visit to the tow yard to pick up your car.
I had the bacon, egg and cheese muffin with arugula and hash browns, while my friend Ruth opted for the popular chicken biscuit.
The fried chicken breast on a homemade biscuit is topped with red pepper jelly and accompanied by pimento cheese grits and house pickles. But make sure you get there early because when the chicken biscuit is gone for the day, it’s gone and you’ve missed out.
