At my sister's suggestion, a group of eight family members met at Parish for brunch on a July Sunday. My husband and I arrived early and went around back to get a peek at the Atlanta Beltline we had heard so much about. It probably helped that it was a very cool morning, because everyone walking dogs, riding bikes, walking, running, and moving along on every conceivable type of conveyance actually looked like they were having fun. Although this has nothing to do with the food at Parish, the fact that the restaurant backs up to the Beltline added to the overall enjoyment of our experience there. There is a patio on the back and also picnic tables right on the Beltline so you have a great people-watching spot. Once inside this former depot, we were impressed with the charming space. Our server was great and even with the large party, the food was delivered efficiently (we were there at 10:00 a.m. before the crowds, but a reservation would be suggested for large parties). We first ordered pastry baskets for the table which were filled with a variety of mini blueberry, carrot, and other types of muffins and scones, with jam and whipped butter, all delicious. We ordered coffees and latte as well. These kept us busy while we waited for our brunch orders which included mushroom/asparagus omelets with sides of cheesy grits, shrimp and grits, mushroom tostada and croque monsieur with crispy roasted potatoes. We had several vegetarians in our party and everyone was very happy with their selections. We had a leisurely meal and enjoyed all of it. The surrounding neighborhood is very walkable and adds to the high marks for this restaurant.
