Thank you to Establishment for hosting us and sharing complimentary dishes. As always all thoughts and opinions shared are 100% my own.
If you love the feel of a rustic restaurant with a buzzing evening bar then you must check out Establishment. When having a girls weekend with some other mommy bloggers we felt this place was a must see. The decor is rustic, patriotic and cozy.
The night we went Establishment had a bunch of bartenders behind the bar and everyone was able to vote on their favorite drink. The bartender with the most votes got money towards their charity. (They didn’t tell you which charity each bartender had. Too keep the voting fair.)
Manager and Co Owner David, from Boston (a fellow northerner) has a background in cocktailing and advertising. Have you ever seen booze travelers? Yes, think of that, fun Boston guy who knows a good drink.
David told us they originally started out with a speakeasy in buckhead in 2014. Since Buckhead was established in 1857 the name followed from that.
Jansen Robinson a local artist did many of the paintings including this gorgeous 3D flag art.
All of the food was insanely good! I don’t think all people can nail brussels sprout, but this restaurant sure did! The fries were hard to pump the breaks on… we devoured them. If you like wings the way I do, then you’ll love them at Establishment. I love my wings crispy and let me tell you, these were cooked to perfection!
Dietary issues? There are many gluten free options here!
Some of the food we tried:
Grilled buffalo shrimp
Roasted root vegetables
Mac n Cheese
General “Sous” Chicken Wings
NY Strip Steak
When you go, if Natalie is working, ask for her! She’s the most bubbly & fun waitress I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. All the waitstaff was amazing, but she really stands out from the rest!
