Satisfy your appetite no matter what you’re craving at SMASH Kitchen & Bar, now open in Town Brookhaven. The modern casual American restaurant is the newest concept from the Here to Serve Restaurants group, and features smash hits from owner Tom Catherall’s other Atlanta eateries.
Flatbreads, steaks and burgers are the main attractions on SMASH’s menu. The flatbreads are cooked in a wood burning oven, and range from the Classic Margherita to the Diablo, a spicy mix of chorizo, coppa salume and hot chili peppers.
It may be hard to decide between the Steak Burger and the SKB Burger. Your decision will be even tougher when you scroll down the menu and see the “Smash it Down,” shaved prime rib served with BBQ sauce and horseradish slaw. For non meat eaters there’s the Veggie Burger, made in house with brown rice, black beans, beets and quinoa.
In addition to a selection of steaks there are baby back ribs and pork chops. There’s also skillet fried chicken, jumbo lump crab cake, grilled salmon and a variety of salads and sides (we told you there was something to match any craving).
Brunch offers a menu that’s as fun to order as it is tasty. Try the Baked Frenchman (bread pudding french toast), the Mad Italian Skillet Scramble (coppa, mozzarella and chili flakes topped with basil, baby arugula and tomato), or the Gravedigger (chicken fried pork chop with fried egg, mushroom, sausage, gravy and a cheddar cheese biscuit). Of course you can’t go wrong with the SKB Chicken & Waffles, which comes with a decadent pecan bacon syrup.
The décor for the bar and restaurant is a mix of cozy and eclectic. Brick walls, red booths and a window into the kitchen give Smash a casual feel, while a unique mix of art, chandeliers and a larger than life ‘eat’ sign make it feel like an escape from the shopping center outside.
The Here to Serve Restaurants group includes Prime, Noche, Goldfish, Twist, Shout, Strip, Aja, Coast Seafood and Raw Bar and Cantina. Later this fall H2SR will open Shucks, an upscale oyster and wine bar, also in Town Brookhaven.
