A beloved fine dining seafood favorite has made its way to Brookhaven! C&S Seafood & Oyster Bar flies in the freshest seafood possible, then uses Southern and Cajun/Creole influences to make one of the best menus in ATL, period. Start with fresh oysters or anything from their cold bar. Dig in to grilled, broiled or blackened market fish, steak and chops or crab and lobster. Then finish with their cheesecake du jour, white chocolate bread pudding, or creme brûlée – the perfect end to a perfect night out.

If you’re got picky eaters in the group, they’re sure to find something here to love. Kaleidoscope also offers a weekend brunch menu and when it’s nice out, sitting on the patio is the perfect way to spend a Sunday funday. When you just want to go out for a few drinks, this spot will deliver for that vibe too. Makes sense where the name comes from, huh!

Seek haven at this fun Brookhaven spot! We love Haven’s vibey neighborhood feel and the ever-changing seasonal menu they offer featuring delicious small plates, entrees, cocktails and more. Sit at the bar and enjoy your meal or make a reservation to sit in the dining room or on the patio when the weather is just right.

Petite Violette

“The finest French restaurant in Atlanta,” and “I really feel like I’m in France!” are just some of the rave reviews diners are saying about Petite Violette (formerly known as Petite Auberge). Enjoy the live French music that plays most nights, the lovely ambiance, and outstanding dishes such as the French Onion Soup, Beef Wellington filet, and Sea Bass Florentine. You can also order them for catering, or rent out their private dining rooms and facilities to host your special event! They also host a dinner theater which is a super fun and different dining experience you should check out on the weekends!

Red Pepper Taqueria - Grilled Oysters

Red Pepper Taqueria

705 Town Blvd Q310 | Brookhaven, GA 30319
Red Pepper Taqueria is always amazing whether you want to grab a scrumptious bite to eat or booze it up with your friends. Despite their name, they’re doing way more than cooking up tacos. They’ve got fresh seafood offerings, tasty salads to fit any diet you’re on, and terrific buffalo wings served with a chipotle ranch that really hits the spot. The best part is that they always have  tons of weekly specials: $15 bottomless mimosas on the weekends, $2 taco Tuesdays, and ½ off wine bottles on Wednesdays just to start! Located in the Town Brookhaven shopping center.

Secreto is the place for reimagined favorites, taking your Southern comforts and modernizing them in a fantastic farm-to-table way. It’s impossible the narrow down the best items on the menu when you’re working with such a star-studded roster. But if we had to pick…the Southern Fried Chicken is a dish that will warm your heart with its impeccable flavor, not to mention the accompanying components of mashed potatoes, garlic green beans, and smoked bacon jalapeño gravy. Plus, the best burger you may ever eat is the Secreto Wagyu Burger, topped with housemade ketchup, mustard, caramelized onions, pickles, and American cheese. Oh yeah, and their bar program is top-notch, so whether you’re coming hungry or thirsty, or both, you’re going to leave happy.

Every once in a while, and for some of us once a week, you get a craving for Mexican food and when in Brookhaven, Verde is the place to go to cure that craving. With a good vibe, great food and drinks, and a patio, it doesn’t get much better than this. Start off with some Loaded Queso for the table with ground beef, sour cream, pico de gallo and some guacamole to top it off. But don’t fill up on that because they have all your favorite entrees from tacos and quesadillas to bowls. Try one of their infused margaritas and you’re in for a great night.

Everyday of the week you can find the classic chocolate and vanilla, but be sure to check their online calendar for their special flavor of the day.
