Ria's Bluebird and Thumbs Up get props from Esquire

Posted By on Mon, Mar 16, 2009 at 6:48 PM

Esquire magazine has put Ria's Bluebird and Thumbs Up Diner on its list of the 59 best breakfast places in America.

It said this about a popular Thumbs Up dish:

The Heap comes in its own skillet. Spuds. Onions. Cheddar jack. Green peppers. Two eggs. Two slices of bacon. The Heap warms the soul. Especially when you add a quarter bottle of Tabasco.

And Ria Pell's restaurant and neck got this description:

Across from Oakland Cemetery, where Margaret Mitchell is buried, tatted-up chef Ria Pell (the one on her neck says HATE) plays around with Southern classics while respecting the basics. Worth the small-parking-lot hassles and long wait.

Ria's has also been lauded recently by GQ and the New York Times. I've received no reports on opening of her new restaurant, Sauces, on Edgewood.

(Edit: Name of Sauces corrected; see comments)
