Ron Eyester is a longtime fixture of the Atlanta restaurant scene. The one time chef of Food 101 in Morningside/Virginia Highlands now serves as the owner of the restaurant. Renamed and rebranded as Rosebud, Eyester continues to pump the city full of love from his headquarters of worldwide domination.
A huge deadhead in his own right, the musically inclined chef loves to take his polished neighborhood restaurant and open it up to fun times. Case in point, Eyester is turning Rosebud into a sea of white on March 3rd. That night, he’s hosting “The White Dinner,” a tribute the the cult classic Beatles album of a similar name (aka The White Album). Full details are are up on the Rosebud website, so go have a look-see. Meanwhile, I’ve included a copy of the menu after the jump.
So back on point, Eyester is a social dude, so you should definitely check him out on twitter via @TheAngryChef. Meanwhile, keep reading to see what he things of my take on Proust. And with that, welcome to ITCK!
