Eleanor’s Secret/#Thursday Doors

Did you say, “Speakeasy”?

That’s what I said when hubby recently suggested we try a local food venue for the first time. We are slowly branching out and trying new restaurants in and around our city. Atlanta in general is a food and shopping mecca, and our little section of it has plenty to offer. So, when our son said he was coming up from the city for a visit we suggested brunch at Muss and Turner’s for our meal, a funky little casual place with some intriguing menu choices. While the seating and ordering process are not ideal to our liking, following more of a NY deli style arrangement (images of Seinfeld’s ‘Soup Nazi’ fill my head), the one thing that was a selling point for me was the description of the little bar that is tucked away, Speakeasy style, behind this unassuming, seemingly utilitarian door.

I mean, it is exciting enough to think that delicious future dinner items might be behind there; but to find the magic of being transported to a cool little bar with knowledgable, friendly bartenders was almost thrilling. Sadly, our brunch plans were cancelled but we still had to pop into that bar…

This is the lovely lady for whom the bar is named, Eleanor Seale.

It was kind of scary creeping around dark corners

And down this hall

 

And I must apologize here for not having a photo of the actaul bar. I have a phobia about taking photos in bars where there are other people present. I don’t know them ,or their circumstances, nor do I want to irritate anyone. But you can look it up online and see for yourself and perhaps our next visit I will be able to snap a quick photo.

I did get a photo of the absolutley delish and unique wings we had as well as the perfect Old Fashion the bartender made for me. There was also a lovely little drink made with Breckinridge whiskey called Beauty and the Beast. Yep, I tamed the beast. 😉 He made a couple of great tequila drinks for hubby that he enjoyed as well, stepping away from his usual beer choices. We will definitely be back to visit Eleanor’s again very soon.

Moroccan style wings…so good!

There are two locations in our area and we hope to try them both at some point. So, welcome to Muss and Turner’s!
