Your parents are in town and you need a place that they’ll like, but where you can subtly treat a hangover too. Enter South City Kitchen in Buckhead. It’s a bit more upscale than where you’d go to recount your night with your friends, but between their menu of Southern comfort food and the covered patio, there’ll be plenty to preoccupy your folks while you nurse yourself back to health. Go for the country ham benedict or cheddar biscuits and gravy, and be glad that they didn’t want to meet before 11am.
