NAVA Brunch Preview

I went to a Blogger Brunch at Nava with Mom to preview their new brunch menu with other Atlanta Food Bloggers. They just recently started serving brunch, and it was an amazing experience. I had never been there before, although I had heard great things about its luxurious details and Southwestern Cuisine. Basically, many restaurants you visit serve run-of-the-mill cuisine that you could probably easily make at home. At Nava, every bite elicits an “OMG!” reaction. I am not joking.
We loved every bite of our meal, and the other bloggers seemed to as well.

Nava Restaurant is known for its bold Southwestern flavors, prime Buckhead location, and comfortable environment with excellent service. The Executive Chef is Ryan Delesandro. Ryan has a lot of experience with Southern and Southwestern Cuisine. He lives in Alpharetta, and practices mixed martial arts. The décor at Nava is a gorgeous southwestern theme, and there is also an outdoor seating area. You can order a bottle of Prickly Pear Margarita with enough for several drinks, and lounge out on the beautiful patio eating an unforgettable brunch while watching the well-heeled Buckhead atmosphere.

Below is the Brunch Preview Menu I sampled, all of which was fantastic. Click here for the full Nava Brunch Menu. Nava Brunch Menu

When you first arrive at Nava and are seated in the casual, yet opulent ambience, servers bring you a basket of warm cornbread shaped like corn sheaves, and made from blue corn, with a large square of fresh butter. You will also get a basket of corn chips, and three gourmet salsas. We had Mango Habañero, Avocado Tomatillo, and Chipotle Tomatillo. Then, you should probably try one of their margaritas like the Prickly Pear, which is made with Cuervo Gold Tequila; or the GA Peach Bellini, or the Peach Payaso Mojito. My favorite of all was the Spiced Flower, which is mixed with Hangar One Chipotle Vodka, and is surprisingly tasty and spicy.

After brunch, we were treated to some desserts, which were heavenly. Just listen to what they were – Key Lime Pie with Guava Ice Cream, Chocolate Mud Pie with Kahlua Ice Cream and Black Cherries, and Blue Agave Cheesecake with Prickly Pear Sorbet. To die for!! Everything on the menu was just perfect. Really. I was so impressed with Nava, and I can’t wait to go back.
