Today, MTV ran a bit piece on hip-hop’s ultra cool Big Boi. In the article, Georgia native Antwan André Patton (a.k.a. Big Boi) talks, albeit briefly, about where he likes to eat around ATL. He named only one spot:
“[We] do a little bit of everything," Big said. "R. Thomas is this nice little joint on Peachtree — 24-hour health-food joint, organic," he explained.
Mister Patton also mentioned how he loves to shop and visit uh… adult places… in around town.
Nice to see an Atlanta institution like R Thomas get some love. As Big Boi mentioned, this little Brookwood Hills restaurant offers up a pretty diverse sampling of health conscious cuisine. I myself have an affinity for their deluxe chips and their breakfast options. Everything on the menu is available 24-7 and is pretty solid. While they won’t win any culinary awards, R serves up a kitsch experience with consistent food. I kind of think of it as the yang to the ying of Dynamic Dish. Certainly worth a visit if you haven’t been there before.
