Sandy Springs: The Brickery

Grant and Marie, the Nick and Nora Charles of food blogging, invited me to join them on a farewell visit to The Brickery in Sandy Springs. We are losing this restaurant to progress---their shopping center will soon be demolished and replaced by some new, random building. It's too bad that I didn't discover them earlier because their food is great.

We started with homemade potato chips topped with bleu cheese. The potato chips were wonderfully crisp. They were covered in just enough tangy bleu cheese to provide a good contrast. Too much cheese would simply hide the chips.

I ordered the brisket. It was wonderfully tender and came with a great homemade tomato-based sauce. The menu suggests "order it with the kugel!" and they were right. The kugel is nicely spiced and is much more interesting than plain old potatoes. The cabbage was very good, too.

I also got a chance to try their fried chicken. It was coated with a crackly-crisp coating. The meat was very tender. This is excellent fried chicken in a town known for its fried chicken. The onion rings were outstanding.
