The Buckhead gastropub is once again hosting brunch on a weekday holiday

If you missed out on the weekday Christmas Eve brunch at The Southern Gentleman, the Atlanta eatery is offering it again.

The menu will include TSG’s usual breakfast and lunch fusion fare. Bartenders will serve mimosas and bloody Mary's and guests can choose from dishes including a sweet potato cheddar biscuit, a brulee'd grapefruit and a skillet cinnamon roll.

Once the clock strikes 4 p.m., dinner will be served until 11 p.m. So if you’d rather eat a supper including rainbow trout and the oxtail marmalade-covered TSG Burger, rest up until later in the day.
