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.
