Rags To Riches In Buckhead of Atlanta; At Brio Tuscan Grille
Written by: Je’ Wesley
The Brio Tuscan Grille that sits in the heart of Buckhead, within Atlanta, Georgia on Peachtree Road is a great place to experience craft cocktails regardless of your economical status. Here you can literally get two cocktails and an appetizer under $20; taking you from rags to riches in this diverse setting of an Italian restaurant within the upscale area of Atlanta. Buckhead in Atlanta ranks among the top ten riches cities in America, according to a recent report by the Atlantic Cities magazine. The report listed the top 30 riches areas in America and placed Buckhead at No. 10. The skyscrapers are beautiful in Buckhead to compare with a downtown of any other major city, but the drinks are usually over priced, with the exception of the Brio Tuscan Grille. This place is a hidden gem as the restaurant sits quiet on Wednesday, April 27, 2016 with $5 drink specials and $3.95 burgers.
There are several drink options to choose from to satisfy any palate of any class level regardless of your income. My favorite was the basil martini. It was a great balance of vodka with the right touch of basil to provide such a unique flavor to long for. Just because the drink is at a reasonable rate doesn’t mean they cheat you on the alcohol; these pours were nice!!! It’s a place you must try and would be perfect for a first date when you don’t want to spend much on a date. It’s also ideal for a small group of friends or co-workers hanging out after work.
