Insider advice from the W’s concierge.
Q: Brunch is a Southern staple on the weekends; what are the best in Midtown?
A: If it’s a Southern influence then I tell them South City Kitchen. If they are seafood lovers then I recommend Lure. If they are looking for healthier options I send them to Highland Bakery. If they are looking for something off the beaten path then
Babs off of Sixth and Juniper. However, I'm most excited about the addition of Joy
Cafe to the Midtown scene.
Q: Some guests are looking for mature theatrical entertainment, where do you send them? A: The best thing about being in Midtown is that we are surrounded by the arts. If guests are looking for something a bit more mainstream then I send them to the
Alliance Theatre at Woodruff Arts Center or the Fox Theatre. If they are more interested in the local or up-and-coming shows, I recommend the SCADshow or the Actor’s
Express at the King Plow Arts Center. Q: If guests are looking for great cocktails where might you send them?
A: I have created a Cinco de Mayo themed Midtown bar crawl. It’s something you could easily start during the day and have it go into the evening. Zocalo, Tin Lizzy’s Cantina, Escorpión, Senor Patron, Takorea, Prickly Pear Taqueria, Taco Mac, Rreal
Tacos are all on the list. Buy a pitcher of margaritas and some tacos at each and see how far you can make it.
