Omnivore - Rosebud opens on North Highland

Executive Chef Ron Eyester buys out Food 101 and changes the name

Monday night was the official opening of Rosebud (1397 N. Highland Ave., 404-347-9747). The restaurant was formerly Food 101 but Executive Chef Ron Eyester bought the owners out and changed the name.

The restaurant retains most of the former menu with ingredients changed here and there. Some appetizers have been added, including my favorite taste last night — this "chicken liver  toast," topped with a relish of chopped bread-and-butter pickles and crunchy bits of smoked bacon.

The restaurant is also retaining its novel "Monday Night Brunch" — a menu of dishes like fried chicken and waffles, country ham and French toast and sausage and egg sliders. We ordered from the brunch menu and had a fun meal.

The dining room has been spruced up and is cozier than ever. More in "Grazing" later this week.
