This year’s festival will be curated by the African Diasporic Art Museum of Atlanta (ADAMA). ADAMA will use the ELEVATE exhibitions to highlight issues of cultural capital. ADAMA executive director Fahamu Pecou notes, “The concept of Cultural Capital provokes a dynamic conversation around ideas of community, access, memory, and development. As developers make plans to reimagine Pittsburgh, we will explore the often overlooked yet deeply embedded cultural resource of one of Atlanta’s oldest neighborhoods- it’s people. Cultural Capital explores the very real, fragile, and human stories embedded in communities like Pittsburgh and its past, present, and future.”

It’s a sunny warm Sunday morning, my dining guest and I were up early to avoid the long lines at the restaurant, to be exact 8am or was it 8:30am, oh well, we were up at the crack of dawn..LOL At the restaurant, we received a warm greeting, chose our food item from the menu and paid for it and headed to our numbered table. The menu is very diverse, my dining guest had the oatmeal with pure maple syrup topped with fresh fruit and toasted pralines on the side, the pralines were so good, yes, she shared some with me. (LOL) Now, I kept it simple, I had egg whites, chicken sausage, potatoes and a refreshing glass of herbal water. The food was very delicious, well seasoned, bursting with flavor. So that was my first visit, on my 2nd visit, you KNOW me, if I like it, I’m back and spreading the news…..LOL So on my 2nd visit it was brunch time, I had a basil pesto chicken panini, scrumptious!!! My dining guest, guess what he had recommended by me, since he’s vegan, the oatmeal..(LOL) The restaurant is quaint, family owned and operated, reminds me of a café in Virginia. The restaurant do not take reservations, they offer breakfast, brunch, sandwiches(Paninis), salads, soups from scratch, and is kid friendly. So if you are an early bird, you know the early bird catches the worm, you can avoid waiting in line. I know you gonna try it, call me, we gotta be there no later than 8:30am, oh by the way, they have outdoor seating, parking…
