Susie Rachele Recommends the BK Brunch Menu

Susie Rachele on Her Favorite Brunch Items

Buttermilk Kitchen is not solely a breakfast and lunch concept restaurant; they serve brunch on the weekends as well. These brunch specials are only served on Saturdays and Sundays, so make sure you find time on the weekends to drop by to try these new treats. Buttermilk Kitchen is almost always packed on weekends and these insanely delicious brunch specials are partly to blame. Brunch is served from 8AM-3PM so be sure to get there early!

Chef Suzanne rightfully maintains her place as one of the best chefs in Atlanta with her scrumptious brunch creations. A Muffuletta, an olive salad with provolone, prosciutto, farm greens, and house rosemary-focaccia, served with mixed greens or house-cut fries can be your appetizer.

Next, follow it up with Cornbread Bacon Pancakes served with pecan-rosemary brittle, bourbon barrel-aged syrup, and sea salt butter. For your entrée, you must try their Barbacoa Short Rib Hash served with guacamole, purple sweet potato, cilantro, and two farm eggs served your way.

If you’re looking for something sweet, BK’s Grapefruit Honey Scone served with vanilla honey and thyme-citrus butter can be the perfect way to end your meal. In the end, regardless of which brunch item you choose, you’ll find that the time you spend at Buttermilk Kitchen with loved ones will always be worth it.

To get your table for brunch, you must be present to put your name on the waitlist. Buttermilk Kitchen does not take any kind of reservations for the brunch special. Your cell phone number is required so that you can have the opportunity to wait nearby. The restaurant will text you when your table is ready. You get five minutes to come back and claim your table. Sounds easy enough, right? Head on early to Buttermilk Kitchen this weekend to treat yourself to your awesome brunch selection!

Susie Rachele on Buttermilk Kitchen’s Vendors

Susie Rachele Discusses the Trusted Vendors of Buttermilk Kitchen

Susie Rachel always promotes Buttermilk’s mission: to nurture people through food by use of sustainable, local ingredients. All dishes are made in-house from scratch with sustainable grown ingredients from nearby farms. We are proudly supported by these vendors:

White Oak Pastures.All Buttermilk Kitchen’s eggs are hand-selected and come from this farm. All of their chickens have free range to roam on the pasture. This developed from over five generations of an amazing family committed to sustainable land stewardship and humane animal treatment. We also utilize their 100% grass fed beef!

Holeman & Finch.If we do not make the bread ourselves, we use Atlanta based artisan bakery, H&F Bread Co. They bake the bread fresh every day! H&F cares about the bread they bake as much as the people who make and buy it. A company dedicated to its community, customers and family. They are committed to providing quality food to all, and we are proud to serve their handcrafted bread.

Rev Coffee Roasters.We took the time to bring in a variety of locally roasted coffee and did a blind taste test. Rev Coffee won as the best tasting coffee, hands down! Rev constantly strives to source the best beans and roast coffee to an exceptional quality and taste. Next time you are here at BK, try their cold press coffee. It’s simply the best!

Southern Swiss Dairy.BK was so impressed with the distinct taste of the fresh milk, chocolate milk, cream and ice cream created by SSD, that we had to start using it every day. The folks at SSD take great pride on ethical treatment of the cows, and put a bottling plant on their farm. This allows the milk to be processed the same day the cows are milked! All of this ensuring the freshest, best tasting milk possible.

Susie Rachele On Buttermilk Kitchen’s Breakfast Special: Smoked Salmon Benedict


Susie Rachele On Buttermilk Kitchen’s Breakfast Special: Smoked Salmon Benedict

Buttermilk Kitchen General Manager Susie Rachele is delighted to share another breakfast special from Chef Suzanne Vizethann—smoked salmon Benedict. No doubt Eggs Benedict are a favorite of many breakfast lovers, comprising classic morning staples like English muffins and bacon in one heavenly plate. But getting that tricky hollandaise sauce right requires superior culinary technique, which is why cooking this traditional American dish is best left in the hands of the skilled and experienced. Chef Suzanne however goes above and beyond with her rendition of Eggs Benedict, recreating it with the very best ingredients that can be sourced in Atlanta.

Starting with one of the main ingredients, the eggs, Buttermilk Kitchen is proud to feature White Oak Pastures’ free-range chicken eggs in their smoked salmon Benedict. All of the chickens at White Oak Pastures are free to roam on pastures so the eggs they produce noticeably taste different and better. According to White Oak Pastures, each egg from their farm is hand selected. This commitment to sustainable land stewardship and humane animal treatment has also been ongoing for more than 150 years or 5 generations, producing some of the finest eggs in Atlanta.

Apart from delicious pasture raised eggs, Buttermilk Kitchen’s smoked salmon Benedict also uses house focaccia instead of the usual English muffins, and smoked salmon to replace the bacon. To top it off is a hollandaise sauce made with Sriracha, a type of hot sauce or chili paste—who would have thought that Sriracha could add a delicious kick to this American breakfast dish? The ending result of these seemingly incompatible ingredients is something that can only be tasted to be truly understood.

To learn more about Buttermilk Kitchen’s breakfast specials or the local ingredients used, please feel free to approach Buttermilk Kitchen’s General Manager Susie Rachele the next time you drop by at Buttermilk Kitchen for breakfast.

Susie Rachele on First-time BK Guests: Get the Chicken Biscuit!

Susie Rachele on First-time BK Guests: Get the Chicken Biscuit!

Buttermilk Kitchen is a popular restaurant in Atlanta, GA mainly because of three key ingredients: good food, good service, and a warm, welcoming ambiance. When you present these three ingredients to your diners, you’re generally encouraging them to keep coming back! Hi, this is Susie Rachele. This post is for foodies who have yet to visit Buttermilk Kitchen.

Whenever I come across old acquaintances who know that I am a part of the BK family, I’m always asked, “what’s good to have at Buttermilk Kitchen?” To be honest, answering this question isn’t as simple as naming one or two dishes or items on the menu that are a must-try because, all biases aside, everything we serve at BK is really good!

But for all intents and purposes, I usually answer the question with, Chicken Biscuit! As a matter of fact, ask anyone who’s been to Buttermilk Kitchen and you will most likely get the same answer. So for those of you who haven’t been to BK yet, and are wondering what to get when you do visit, our signature Chicken Biscuit is a good introduction to what we are all about!

The Chicken Biscuit is made with fried chicken breast on a biscuit with homemade red pepper jelly, and served with pimiento cheese grits and pickles on the side. This is served during breakfast hours from Tuesday through Sunday, from 8:00 am to 11:00 am only so you better be at the doors by 8am because the lines get long pretty quickly.

If, by chance, you missed the weekday breakfast hours for the famous biscuit, you can still get it during our weekend brunch (Saturday and Sunday, 8:00 am to 3:00 pm), and it’s available until closing time!

Please stay tuned for more Buttermilk Kitchen updates from me, Susie Rachele. Thanks for stopping by!

Susie Rachele Talks About Buttermilk Kitchen’s Fancy Friend Chicken Dinner

Susie Rachele Talks About Buttermilk Kitchen’s Fancy Friend Chicken Dinner

Once a month, Buttermilk Kitchen closes its doors to the public only to open them to a limited number of guests who will be treated to a special locavore dining experience. This is Susie Rachele, General Manager of this locavore restaurant in Atlanta, and our Fancy Fried Chicken Dinners every month give a whole new meaning to the farm-to-table concept.

As a whole, Buttermilk Kitchen is run on a farm-to-table concept on a day to day basis, sourcing fresh local ingredients like eggs, milk, and bacon, but what makes our Fancy Fried Chicken Dinners different is the fact that we put together an entirely new menu each month for this event based on seasonality and creativity. That means each month, there is little to no chance that two meals will ever be exactly the same. As the culinary team of Buttermilk Kitchen put their heads together to come up with a menu that’s representative of what the very best of their culinary abilities can muster, and what Mother Nature has provided, it’s no wonder then that our monthly Fancy Fried Chicken Dinners sell like hotcakes (speaking of hotcakes, Buttermilk Kitchen’s fluffy buttermilk pancakes remain a popular item on the menu!).

For those who haven’t heard about our much-anticipated Fancy Fried Chicken Dinner event, it’s essentially a four-course meal with timed courses. The fun part is that the dishes aren’t revealed until the night of the event. As you may have guessed, there is limited seating and we always expect it to sell out.

At Fancy Fried Chicken Dinners, you are encouraged to bring your own beer or wine; there is no cork fee. The four-course meal is finely orchestrated so needless to say, we expect our guests to arrive on time so as not to delay everyone’s experience.

If there’s anything you want to ask about Buttermilk Kitchen’s Fancy Fried Chicken Dinners, please feel free to ask me, Susie Rachele.

Enjoy a Fancy Fried Chicken Dinner

Four Special Courses at Buttermilk Kitchen

For all culinary fans in the Atlanta, Georgia area, or visitors who enjoy restaurants that revel in the art of fine preparation and cooking, nothing can top the event that happens but once per month at Buttermilk Kitchen.

The clever title of Fancy Fried Chicken Dinner belies the planning and skills that lie behind this very special event. First off, it is a one-time seating at 7 pm, with four timed courses that are prepared by chef Suzanne Vizethann and her incredibly talented and devoted team. However, knowing what time it begins is just about the only thing that does not change.

For instance, notification announcing the date of the month that the Fancy Fried Chicken Dinner will be happening stays under wraps until the latest possible time. This keeps loyal and fanatical patrons on their toes with their phones within immediate reach at all times so when the special day is finally announced, they can get on the very popular and short list of attendees for the restaurant event of the month in Atlanta.

Next, one would think that because this is called the Fancy Fried Chicken Dinner each month that it must basically be a really good recipe that never changes. Well, the one who would think that needs to rethink that idea. For instance, their June FFCD (as the in crowd likes to call the Fancy Fried Chicken Dinner) was themed as “Fiesta Like There’s No Manana” and consisted of a first course of guacamole and salsa, which was followed by a street corn salad. The third course was fried chicken mole, and the meal finished off with tres leche cake, consisting of glazed fruit, cinnamon, and whipped cream.

As you can see, each Fancy Fried Chicken Dinner event is a, well, event! If you want to find out how to make the next FFCD, check out their website at Buttermilk Kitchen for more information. Or you can call general manager, Susie Rachele, at 678-732-3274 to ask any other questions you may have.
