Local children will have a holly, jolly Christmas again this year at the 22nd annual Breakfast with Santa. The weekend event will offer sessions for families on Saturday and Sunday, December 13 and 14, 2014, beginning at 8:30 a.m.
As in years past, Santa will arrive at 9 a.m. on his second sleigh (a fire truck) along with firefighters from Atlanta Fire Department’s Station 21. Children are encouraged to tour the fire truck and play in the man-made “snow flurries” while waiting for a chance to sit on Santa’s lap. Other festivities include face-painting from Magic Man Entertainment and table-side visits from Santa’s elves, Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer and ballerinas from the Atlanta Ballet Company’s production of The Nutcracker.
For breakfast, children are served crispy chocolate chip waffles and bacon. The adult menu includes grilled ham, steak egg Benedict, asparagus and parmesan grits. Hot chocolate with marshmallows, fresh-squeezed orange juice and coffee will also be available. Reservations are required and are $39 per person (children under two are free).

We are celebrating five amazing years in elegant Parisian style from now until Sunday, Nov. 30. The classic French restaurant, which opened in November 2009, is Buckhead Life’s nod to Paris on Peachtree Road. Month-long celebratory activities include live jazz with local artist Sal Gentile during Sunday brunch, a special anniversary dinner menu, and for the snap-happy selfie seeker, a 14-foot twinkling Eiffel Tower on the corner of Peachtree Road and Tower Place. Guests are invited to take photos in front of the tower using the hashtag #BistroNikoCinq.
Get hooked on seafood in October during National Seafood Month at the Atlanta Fish Market. Throughout October, Buckhead Life and the Atlanta Fish Market will celebrate National Seafood Month by highlighting sustainable fishing, the health benefits of a diet rich in seafood and seasonal seafood choices including the return of the highly sought after stone crabs.
Buckhead Life Restaurant Group owns its own boutique seafood company that sources all of the seafood directly, eliminating the need for a middle-man. That means all seafood used in the company is flown or trucked in fresh daily ensuring an 18 to 48 hours out of water guarantee. Buckhead Life works directly with the fishermen and boats to source the most viable fish species available. Because of Buckhead Life’s commitment to sustainability, guests are often introduced to new species that they may have not seen before like monkfish and walleye pike, instead of overfished species like Chilean sea bass.
Leave the cooking and cleaning to us and enjoy time with your family this Thanksgiving. 103 West will pamper you with a feast for all your senses, including your family’s very own perfectly roasted whole turkey and endless platters of fabulous trimmings and pastries.
