The Buckhead popular spot for Americanized tapas has entered into the Brunch game. Since I’ve really enjoyed dining at Saltyard since it’s opening last year, I was interested to see what their take on Brunch would be.
At 12:30 on a Sunday, there was no wait for table, though the restaurant did start to get more busy during the course of meal. If you are eating healthy, choose from the “will power” section of the menu with items like oatmeal made from steel cut oats, granola or Atlanta Fresh Yogurt.
I say brunch is the time to indulge, starting out with not only the Burrata salad with peaches and prosciutto as well as the Mascarpone French Toast. The Burrata salad which was plenty to share between two or three people was wonderful. Not only did it have peach slices, but there was a peach puree as well which complimented the crispy prosciutto.
I’m glad I’d ordered an entree in addition to the French Toast. It wasn’t the robust dish I was expecting based on the description and lacking in the Mascarpone department. The house made blueberry pecan syrup was nice but the consistency was much thinner an liquidy than I would have expected.
My entree, the Frittata with mushrooms and squash was a pretty presentation – topped with grape tomatoes and arugula. As far as satisfaction, it was hearty and filling, if not a bit bland. I think it could have benefitted from the addition of sausage, but that isn’t an option as they like to keep this as a vegetarian entree and it is pre-assembled.
The highlight of brunch was the corned beef hash topped with fried egg and chive hollandaise. The presentation is rather nice, with the hash being served in as a fried croquette-like dish rather than loose. And they don’t skimp on corned beef, with a generous portion of tasty, juice cb in every bite.
While brunch isn’t meant to be tapas style like dinner, everything is a la carte. So, while entrees are only around $10, they don’t come with sides. Our entrees of corned beef hash and frittata were plenty filling on their own but the addition of grilled tomatoes and garlic fries were a nice addition.
