Brunch: The General Muir

DSC01858Hey everyone! Last weekend I met up with some friends to have brunch at The General Muir! It is located in Emory Point and is quite the popular spot! I asked my friends to help me write this review so here are our thoughts on what we tried!

DSC01860Smoked Hash– $11- crisped pastrami, potatoes, cabbage, peppers, caramelized onions, and sunny eggs- I got this dish and it was great and filling! I broke the egg onto the dish and loved the mix of different textures on this plate! The pastrami was definitely my favorite!

DSC01861Pecan Crusted French Toast– $10- Housebaked challah, vermont maple syrup, spiced butter, and roasted bananas- “The pecan crust was definitely really good, it created this crisp crust with a really nice and fluffy interior and the banana on top [basically] completed it. [The dish] was pretty full of flavor and [had] excellent texture. It wasn’t like any french toast id ever had because the combination of banana and the pecan crust made it pretty unique.”- Saeed

DSC01862Poached Eggs and Grits with a side of Crispy Pastrami (2 pieces)- $12 + $4- Made with gruyere, roast mushrooms, madeira sauce, and toast sticks- “I mainly enjoyed eating the grits and the pastrami (pastrami being my number 1 like). The pastrami was really flavorful and succulent. The grits were creamy and were packed with a lot of flavor. My umami sense was definitely catered to. I would definitely get the pastrami again. On the poached eggs and grits – I would probably try something else but not due to this dish being bad.”- David

DSC01863Avenue A– $11-an everything bagel with nova, schmear, avocado, grapefruit, cucumber, onion, and dill. “I think it was ok, given the fact that I am not a huge fan of sea food but the salmon was really fresh. I will try other dishes next time at General Muir, but I will recommend this to my friends who like salmon.” – Fiona
Caramel Macchiato– “I liked the caramel macchiato a lot, because it is a perfect combination of espresso flavor and sweet taste.”- Fiona
