Easter Sunday at Twelve Hotels Lobby Bar & Bistro


"It was pure happiness on Easter morning at Lobby. 
Lots of happy kids and lots of smiling parents."
Liza Cardona

I have to admit that after living for more than 5 years in Atlanta I never heard of Twelve Hotels or it's restaurant, Lobby Bar and Bistro. I am pulling my hairs for not discovering this place until now. The location couldn't be more perfect (or accessible). 

Lobby Bar & Bistro is located on the ground floor of TWELVE Hotel & Residences in the heart of Atlantic Station. I think the biggest misconception about this restaurant is it's name. "Bar & Bistro. It doesn't sound too family friendly right? You are wrong. 

This place has a very elegant, yet relax atmosphere, and is ideal for families.

On Easter Sunday I took the family for their Easter brunch, and I was pleasantly surprised with all the details the restaurant had towards it's diners. 

 

A pet station with bunnies, face painting, pictures with the Easter bunny and Alice in Wonderland, and 2 Easter Egg hunts. Seriously, these are details you rarely see in a restaurant. Well, maybe some restaurants had the Easter bunny too but only one offered a full Easter experience to it's diners, Lobby at Twelve!!

 


Service was excellent. Our waitress was friendly and extremely attentive towards my children needs. She even made then laugh and got us sold on coming back.

 
While we were waiting for our food, Alice came to our table and talk to the kids. 

The Easter bunny also came and although my 11 year old was a little freaked out by it my 10 year old son was all smiles.


The brunch was really, really good.  I loved their sweet scones. In fact I like it so much that I am trying a new gluten free version at home.




For brunch, I ordered Salmon Eggs Benedict. A classic dish that I just can't get enough. Eggs were poached perfectly and that sauce was dynamite!!


After our brunch, I had the pleasure to meet the Chef. He told me to come back and try his new menu items. The new menu entrees are full of flavor and creative twists. I don't know about you but I love when chef's are able to get out of their kitchens to interact with their diners. As a food lover, I geek out when I see a chef. You know how some people idolize athletes, or celebrities? Not me. I idolize chefs. I have a deep respect towards them. I love how they bring joy and happiness to people with food. I believe there's nothing more powerful in this world than good food made with love. This Easter Sunday I felt loved at Lobby and I am eternally grateful to add these memories to our life. Thank you so much Twelve Hotels, and Lobby Bar & Bistro for making us feel so welcome. We are definitely coming back for more!
