Oak Steakhouse in Alpharetta’s Avalon doesn’t mess around when it comes to brunch. A giant burger containing three cuts of beef, a frittata with duck eggs, short rib and goat cheese, morning cocktails aplenty and, for those seeking to replenish lost vitamins, fresh-ingredient mocktails.
We’re fans of the Shine On, featuring the vegetal sweetness of beet juice and spicy bite of ginger beer. Add the zest from lime juice to brighten with muddled basil and you have a soothing alternative to boring OJ.
Oak Steakhouse, Avalon, 950 3rd St., Alpharetta. 678-722-8333, oaksteakhouseatlanta.com. 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Sundays.
With three locations around Atlanta, BarTaco offers sun-worshipping brunchers shareable plates of tiny tacos plus freshly made agua frescas to refuel body, mind and soul.
