Since when did Inman Park become some Buckhead – esque, unrecognizable, delicious place to eat food? It dawned on me and a friend, as we drove .31 miles from his condo and paid for parking, that Inman park is crazy. The deeper issue really here is that I am having to face the fact I am getting old and now I talk about the times when neighborhoods were different like some dried up fruit.
That big, new development there houses Bread and Butterfly a very small and delicious french restaurant. They someone managed to hire only people that speak in a French accent and very dapper men and women. The restaurant was packed, and there’s not much space so be prepared to get intimate or wait outside. The bar was completely under water and it took us about 15 minutes to get a drink while we waited for the table.
The servers were all very friendly and knowledgable, and the food was outstanding. We started out with the Fromage, which turned out to be too stinky for my friend, but my motto when it comes to cheese is the stinkier the better
Then we had the Tomato Soup with Puff Pastry, which turned out completely amazing. The Puff pastry is baked on top of the cup of soup, and it’s like dipping the most delicious croissant you’ve ever had into the most delicious tomato soup you’ve ever had. I am not even a Tomato soup fan, and I highly enjoyed it.
To finish off the appetizer selection we had the Potato and Raclette Gratin. My friend was somewhat suspect of the gratin, but once we tried it we were very pleased.
The main course was the Roasted 1/2 Chicken, which was some of the most delicious tender chicken I’ve had in a while. It doesn’t come with any sides so you have to make sure you get something with it. I would recommend the gratin as that kind of makes it taste like chicken and mashed potatoes which I love.
Have you dined at Bread and Butterfly? I would love hear about your experience in the comments.
