Addison Eatery’s casually elegant interior has high ceilings and big windows that let in tons of natural light during the daytime. Located in the former Atlas Global Bistro space overlooking Woodward Ave., this is going to be a prime parade-watching spot on Thanksgiving. Their scrumptious brunch options make it a wonderful destination any day of the year.
Stepping into the eatery, you’ll find lots of warm chestnut-colored wood in the bar area and a long, smooth banquette runs the length of the dining room. Two- and four-top tables are cloaked in chic black table cloths and clear plastic chairs that are more comfortable than they look. Punches of orange liven up the decor.
Addison’s menu features re-imagined breakfast and lunch classics: foods you know and love with playful twists that will make your taste buds swoon. Try a wild mushroom omelet, made with mushrooms braised with garlic, herbs and white wine folded into fluffy eggs along with Swiss cheese. Upgrade your side to the irresistible Addison potatoes, sliced thin and sauteed with onions, peppers, bacon and cheese.
If you’re more of a dessert-for-breakfast person (it’s one of our favorite indulgences), satisfy your craving with Addison’s bourbon apple French toast. It’s topped with a braised bourbon apple sauce and whipped cream. We love their sweet potato pancakes: pillowy confections served with apple cinnamon butter and warm maple syrup.
The kitchen also serves up a version of shrimp and grits that has been gaining a loyal following so quickly it deserves its own fan club. The fact that it’s not just regular ol’ shrimp and grits – it’s bacon-wrapped shrimp – might have something to do with it.
At lunchtime, Addison serves up creative, tasty dishes like Gorgonzola steak flatbread, topped with caramelized onions, wild mushrooms, bechamel (a cream sauce thickened with flour and butter), Parmesan, peppercorn crusted steak, and arugula.
Or have breakfast for lunch. There’s no food police here.
If you’re feeling naughty, go for Addison’s wickedly delicious cast iron mac & cheese. This luscious, creamy dish pairs bechamel and aged Cheddar tossed with pasta and baked with herb buttered bread crumbs. Make it even more decadent by adding lobster.
You can also build your own burger, selecting from toppings like bacon, caramelized onions, a fried egg, guacamole, or stone ground mustard. Then sit back in your sunny, window-facing seat and watch the world go by.
