"When you come to the edge of all the light you know, and the darkness sets in. Faith is knowing one of two things will happen. There will be something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly." Paul Overton
Inman Park, Atlanta’s first planned community has since evolved from the1880’s into a bustling manicured green space with a casual, yet trendy brunch scene. Bordered by beautiful Victorian style homes, this historic neighborhood is a fabulous destination for the flip flop faithful to congregate; and the pews at Inman restaurants are filled every Sunday.
Secluded on Bernina Avenue where restaurant row meets the park, Parks Edge is Inman’s best kept secret worth sharing. As you enter through the hallway, the restaurant resembles a cozy home, where you are greeted by the sounds of smooth jazz and often by owner Richard Wadlington. Servers dressed in black garb carry plates of comfort and bottomless brunchtails overflow like water. Filling both the intimate dining areas and adjoining patio, as the surround sound of harmonious chatter drifts throughout the room.
Warm buttermilk biscuits with strawberry preserves served with a Pineapple Bellini was the perfect start to brunch. The menu reads like an eclectic fusion of Southern and Mexican inspired creations by Chef Jorge Pacheco, offering dishes like Steak and Eggs with a Chimmi Churri sauce to Chilaquiles and Fried Egg served with Queso Fresco. After much deliberation, I settled on the Peaches and Cream French Toast drizzled with a Brown Sugar Lavender glaze, the Crab Benedict with Smoked Salmon under a blanket of Hollandaise sauce, and a side of Stone Ground Monterey Jack Grits. The combination of sweet and savory married my dishes beautifully and the result was simply delicious. Parks Edge, is no longer Inman’s secret but definitely sits on the edge of Park and fabulous!
