In addition to charming contemporary chompers with a rotating menu of seasonal sups, Le Giverny Bistro's culinary quests have earned it awards and accolades from previously pleased palates. Nestled snugly in the European-style Emory Inn, Le Giverny manifests mellifluous dinner and lunch menus, sprinkled with Mediterranean-style spices and furnished by local farmers markets. Chef and Paris-native Rémy Kerba starts lunch off small with a bevy of baby bites to exercise adult appetites. Robustly ruminate on Kerba's famous house-made pork rillettes, accompanied by dijon, cornichons, and baguette croutons ($8), or the iceberg and blue cheese salad, topped with crisp bacon and creamy homemade dressing ($6). Both dinner diners and lunch-goers can languish over Le Giverny's sautéed rainbow trout grenobloise, pan-fried and covered in toasted almonds ($14 for lunch, $19 for dinner), or the grilled fillet of salmon, splashed with a basil and olive-oil pistou ($14 for lunch, $18 for dinner). Evening eaters can feast on a bistro staple with the steak-frites specialty ($26), in which herbed butter coats a center-cut strip steak, earning it friends with steak knives, butter knives, and sophisticated babies alike.
Anis Café & Bistro takes its diners on a trip to Southern France with Provençal versions of Mediterranean-inspired cuisine and the cozy setting of a French cottage. Although Anis serves dinner and lunch, today's Groupon is for the recently added Sunday brunch. Beret-bearing specialties include the cured-salmon croque monsieur with sweet tomato, soft goat cheese, roasted Bermuda onion, and capers ($11). Eggs get their moment in the pan with the three-egg omelette, a fluffy sleeping bag of scrambled oeufs stuffed with your choice of fillings such as asparagus, broccolini, tomatoes, artichokes, portabello mushrooms, sausage, chicken, and prosciutto ($12). Shellfish open up to compassionate brunchers with the Moules Marinières, mussels in white wine, garlic, parsley, and cream ($11). Carnivorous connoisseurs can make it a meatier midmorning with the steak frites–– grilled bistro steak with sauce au poivre, french fries, and baby greens ($17). For a sweet ending or scrumptious main course, Anis also serves the Parisian favorite Nutella crêpes, filled with bananas, Nutella, and toasted almonds ($8). Anis is cocooned in a converted house that has been renovated to reflect the atmosphere of a homey restaurant in the South of France. With exposed brick, warm lighting, and an eclectic collection of art adorning the attractively hued walls, Anis is a romantic destination for couples and their oblivious third wheels. The bistro also boasts a tree-shaded outdoor patio that is open to dining and ennui relishing year-round.
Natural light streams through wide, white-draped windows, dappling the open, airy space of tables and booths at Nancy G's. While relaxing in the casual and friendly atmosphere, diners can peruse the menu for brunch, lunch, and dinner fare made with a mama's love and a culinary stranger's panache. Brunch, the Minotaur of the meal universe, is a simple affair. Try the classic eggs benedict ($9), the buttermilk pancakes ($6), or two buttermilk biscuits served with red-eye sausage gravy and two eggs any style ($8). Because breakfast has long been an excuse to eat dessert as a meal, Nancy G's crafts a delectable, homemade Swedish apple crêpe ($11), brimming over with cinnamon apples and Nancy's special cinnamon-honey granola mix.
Imagine That! and Future Tech founder Kelly Williams has always loved science and art—up until her children were toddlers, she had spent her life building a career as an environmental engineer working for the EPA. But when she began volunteering as a leader of art and science programs at her local church and school, she unexpectedly discovered that she loved teaching children even more. Since 1995, Imagine That! and Future Tech learning centers have fostered a passion for science and technology in students aged 3 through 14. Alongside hands-on, age-appropriate instruction in the basics of physics, chemistry, and simple machines, the kids learn to work futuristic wonders such as building and programming robots to navigate obstacle courses and follow instructions. Science camps and workshops at locations all over the Atlanta metropolitan area give children a firm foundation in the sciences and prepare them for tomorrow’s world of ever-more-advanced computers and automatic doors.
