Avondale Estates Dining Guide
The “luxury” of luxury homes calls for more than what’s inside. A lot of what people enjoy, when they choose the life that comes with fine single-family homes, is what’s within easy reach. Great dining choices, then, become very much a part of the equation. Named for the river that runs through Shakespeare’s birthplace, Avondale Estates is no exception, and the selection of restaurants here does justice to that inspiration.
To Begin at the Beginning
Let’s start with breakfast. Rising Son, on Avondale Road, tops a lot of lists for Southern breakfast classics. The biscuits alone, some say, are worth the visit, and the service is widely agreed to match those high marks. It’s a good place for lunch, too, and the menu changes with local availability of the fresh ingredients they use there.
Just up the road, Good Karma Coffee House offers vegan alternatives at breakfast time. Good Karma is known for its delicious, gluten-free baked goods. Waffles, pancakes, omelets, and scrambles await and, at lunchtime, the sandwiches come on their own homemade bread.
The Mid-Day Mark
Stop by Arepa Mía for some delicious Venezuelan cuisine. This 100% gluten free restaurant specializes in freshly made arepas, empanadas, cachapas, and other Venezuelan comfort chow. Their meats are locally sourced from White Oak Pasture Beef, Riverview Farms, and Springer Mountain.
Closer to home, The Stratford, on Avondale Road, goes beyond the pub lunch. Just a couple of years old, The Stratford celebrates the Shakespeare reference of Avondale with fish and chips, shepherd’s pie, and a Guinness-braised pulled pork plate. Salads, sandwiches, and wraps are here, too, for days when you’ve got little time to spare.
What Makes Dining Fine
The company and the conversations have a lot to do with making a dinner memorable. Still, the backdrop of a restaurant that takes extra care, that prepares the unusual and outpaces the norm, is a major part of that memory, too. For the luxury homes of Avondale Estates these opportunities are abundant, and some immerse us in the cuisine and atmosphere of other lands.
Kimball House, in nearby Decatur, offers a French view of the seasons and the farms nearby with selections that change every day, ranging from farfalle and caviar to hoppin’ John and Carolina Gold rice. Named to Southern Living Best New Restaurants in 2014, Kimball House prides itself on passion and personal hospitality. The restaurant known as No. 246 is the choice for refined Italian dinners with a straightforward menu of favorites prepared exceedingly well.
