Marietta 03-22-2014

Location: 285 Grand Ave. BK
Time: 11:30am
People: MGru, ALev, RB, CK and myself

Feelings: Marietta, run by the team that brought Smoke Joint, Little Brother, and Peaches, is a nice Southern-inspired spot in Clinton Hill. With comforting and spacious dining area that is rural-chic, this is a ideal place for group brunching.

The menu has many Southern inspired dishes like "extra fancy Memphis fried chicken" and fried green tomatoes. There are several egg dishes for brunch, separated into "scramble" and "poached." My kale and caraway scramble was excellent. The eggs were cooked runny, but then I realized later that I was supposed to scoop the runny eggs with the toast. (I substituted with the bread with potatoes--big fail on my end.)

As a fan of runny eggs, RB felt his poached egg with pastrami was deliciously rich and salty although to some of us, they did seem a bit under-cooked.

MGru's granola coated french toast was on the dry side, and the accompanied syrup did not do the justice.
Overall, we enjoyed the non pretentious atmosphere of the restaurant. It was relaxing and really a lovely establishment. With several options of brunch cocktails, meats and fresh produce, Marietta is a place we can always count on.

Sad about the French Toast. So very sad!
