Hip Hop Hooray, 5Church ATLiens Brunch Returns April 15
Taxing week? Sign off. Bottom line, it’s ATLiens brunch time. 5Church Atlanta hosts its second ATLiens brunch this Saturday from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Cecili & Mr. E. Worldwide return, performing their “soul-ectronic/multi-crunk/flyy-ness” spin on an Outkast “ATLiens” playlist. Power up with craft cocktails, mimosas and sangria by the glass or carafe or build-your-own bloody marys and navigate the well-curated brunch menu. Partial to morning fare? Steer toward Belgian waffles with sautéed apples, bourbon caramel sauce and whipped cream ($8); tender crabcakes and poached eggs with toasted bread, spinach and jalapeño beurre blanc ($14); or “Preacher’s Breakfast” of three eggs, stone-ground grits, bacon and braised greens ($12). Those fancying traditionally “p.m.” dishes will go for the oyster po’boy with smoked bacon aioli, pickled Fresno pepper, arugula and hand-cut fries ($14); the signature 5Church lamb burger ($14); and bistro steak “a la brasa” with two eggs any style, chimichurri and french fries ($23). Several omelets and sandwiches round out the menu. 5Church Atlanta’s interstellar ATLiens brunch is “chill-axing,” not taxing.
