1. Continent Restaurant and Cigar Lounge
Buford Highway is Atlanta’s avenue of dreams when it comes to international cuisine, and Continent fits right in with its Caribbean and African flavor fusions. Chef Scotley Innis (formerly of 5Church, Hell’s Kitchen Season 18) made a calculated bet that his jerk lobster over grits would make residents of Chamblee do a dutty wine (dance, not a drink) late into the evening, as Sunday brunch runs from 3 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. He was right, as the restaurant has become quite a crowd favorite. If that weren’t enough, Continent’s ginger whisky smash or house punch will surely help you feel the post-brunch riddims.
