One way we’ve found to entertain ourselves on painfully long conference calls is to plan out the combination of sides we’re going to get with our fried chicken dinner at The Colonnade. With more than 30 options ranging from fried okra to black-eyed peas, you’ll have a lot of possibilities to keep you occupied. This family-style dining hall has been around since 1927, so it’s fortunately not going anywhere. Unfortunately, neither are those endless conference calls.

JCT Kitchen & Bar
Go to this Westside staple for the fried chicken, but stay for the cocktails, patio, and burger.
Go to Beetlecat in Inman Park to sit on a patio and eat great seafood, or to drink in a basement bar that looks straight out of That ’70s Show.
Einstein’s in Midtown has a large, wide-ranging menu and an even larger patio, so it should be your next big group brunch spot.
