French American Brasserie

Dessert at French American Brasserie

Another year older, another year wiser…

This year I celebrated by birthday in style, at the French American Brasserie in downtown Atlanta.

Such decadence!

We started with a champagne toast, before moving onto a spicy red, selected for us by our host, owner Cindy Brown.

From there, I did my best to answer the question: “Is it possible to have too much of a good thing?”

First, I ordered foie gras — not once but twice.


I started with an order as an appetizer, and then opted to have a second helping top my filet.


From there you’d think I know when to say when.

But no.

Cindy strikes again — sending over surf-board sized platter, covered with every dessert you could imagine.

Mais oui!

I focused my attention on the crème brulee, but just in case the tarte and cream puff felt left out, I gave them a little attention, too.

I’d say it’s safe to say I ate enough to feed a small village.

Mmm, come to think of it, that sounds good — maybe somewhere in the South of France?

For the next best thing, check out the French American Brasserie yourself.

You can dress up for their dining room, or wear jeans to belly up to their traditional zinc bar.

Tell them Corinna sent you!
