Omnivore - Cafe 458 opens for dinner

Here's some more good news from the Old Fourth Ward. Cafe 458, whose popular Sunday brunch helps fund programs for the homeless, is opening for dinner 5:30-8:30 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, beginning Sept. 4.

A spokesperson for the Cafe, whose chef is Johnathan Metellus, said this:

The new dinner menu at Café 458 will feature an eclectic mix of traditional Southern comfort food and American cuisine influenced by tastes from around the world. Dinner patrons can choose a prix-fixe, three-course dinner ($28) or á la carte entrees including Lobster Ravioli, Seared Filet Mignon, and Sunflower- Encrusted Salmon. Diners may bring their own bottle of wine.

On Sundays, Café 458’s will continue to serve signature brunch favorites such as Southern Comfort French Toast, Costa Rican Pancakes, Thai Chicken and Waffles, and the ever-popular Carolina Pulled Pork Eggs Benedict.

During other hours, the restaurant, operated by Samaritan House of Atlanta at 458 Edgewood Ave., provides regular meals to the homeless in a restaurant setting instead of the usual soup kitchen.

I've eaten brunch at the Cafe several times. If the dinner menu is as good as brunch, this should be another great dining spot in the same area as Dynamic Dish, Noni's and Cafe Circa.
