New Year, New Menus

We are starting 2014 with a BANG and couldn't be more excited to debut our new menu tonight! We've added some truly delectable dishes to our already killer menu, and we think our neighborhood noshers are going to love these new additions! From fresh salads, like The Lucy, with kale + red apples + sliced Spanish onions + avocado + toasted pumpkin seeds served with a lemon vinaigrette, to new sandwiches and sides, our lunch menu makeover will make your midday meal unforgettable. If the dish descriptions don't do it for you, Buffy Dekmar's beautiful photos sure will make your mouth water.
If you already love our out-of-this-world bacon, take a look at The Wedge salad, crunchy romaine with grape tomatoes + crumbled bleu cheese + SIMB's honey bacon + roasted walnuts + green goddess dressing. Or check out the steamy soba noodle bowl with tender pulled chicken + carrots + cucumber + sprouts + cilantro in a coconut + lemongrass broth... YUM! 
If dinner is what you've got in mind, and you're thinking that burger looks mighty good, you are in luck!! SIMB is proud to debut The Zia, a half pound of Niman Ranch all natural beef, with Hatch green chile + sharp cheddar + roasted garlic aioli and The Fez, an all natural lamb burger with feta + olive tapenade + black pepper with mint aioli. Wash either one down with a brew from our craft beer list, and you've got the ultimate casual meal! Or sample our new scallop dish: tri-zested scallops with ginger gastrique + warm lentil + cranberry salad + fresh dill + beet vinaigrette, perfect with the Bliss Family Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc. 

Check out our website, or come in this weekend to see the full menu, and stay tuned for a brand new Scoutmob collaboration! 


A Taste of Foxhall

We were ecstatic when Foxhall asked us to join their preferred vendor list last year.  Located in Chattahoochee Hills, this amazing sporting lodge has so many beautiful wedding sites, and when Foxhall announced their newest venue, Lakeside Terrace, we knew exactly how to show it off to potential brides and grooms. Collaborating with some of the best in the biz, many vendors from Studio1658, we created "A Taste of Foxhall," a styled tasting and photo shoot.
Inspired by Martha Stewart and Ralph Lauren's style,  creative director Ginny Branch blended elegant, natural, and clean elements to create this stunning showcase, which was coordinated beautifully by Simply Charming Socials. The oatmeal and cream tones with pops of greens kept the palette fresh, and perfect for any season. Danny Wilson at The Savage Garden incorporated succulents, apples, and figs into lush greenery in each of the spectacular arrangements. Check out the stunning drift wood alter piece and chandelier!
Slate and wooden slabs were the perfect serving pieces for our light bite menu. Mango + scallop ceviche, mini BLT sandwiches, and green gazpacho with almond brittle were some of the tasty treats, along with a gorgeous charcuterie display. One of our new favorite menu items, beet chips with smoked trout and caper berry remoulade were gobbled up too. Erica Loesing, of the brand new Yes Ma'am, created wonderful handwritten tags for each dish, a classic chalk board menu, and that unbelievable invitation suite- such a talented lady! 
Of course, there to document every delightful detail were the wonderful Buffy and Chris Dekmar, who shot film and video throughout the day. Even our sweet little Henry made it into a few shots! Buffy's photos are just perfection, and take us right back to this wonderful afternoon at Foxhall with these incredible vendors.

We are so humbled to work with such creative and talented people- thank you, thank you, thank you!
