Here's what you do SundayFirst: Atlanta is brunch country, and Sunday is prime time. Here's what you do. Head to Atmosphere for a truly French brunch experience. We went recently and had the chevre croton - Melted aged goat cheese with arugula, marinated tomato, balsamic, thyme and pine nuts. So good. Then, we had the croque madame - ham and melted Swiss cheese sandwich served with mixed greens and French fries. This was just amazing. The perfect meal to start Sunday. We started with mimosas, and finished with a glass of bordeaux. Excellent. About $35 per person.

Third: Take a post-festival siesta. You'll be tired after all that great entertainment. Get some rest. Follow the perfect bed rules.
Finally: Chef Ford puts on a regular Sunday Supper at JCT Kitchen, and it's totally worth it. A $24 prix fixe menu will bring you a table amuse bouche, a starter, choose a meat & three sides for your entree - choose a meat and three sides, and a dessert. The choices are outstanding. JCT's famous fried chicken. Pork chops with bacon jam and pork jus. Gumbo with smoked sausage and seafood. Mac & Cheese, locally raised vegetables like brussel sprouts or roasted root veg. Divine. Go sit back in the JCT ambiance, and dine. ($40 per person).
