8 Arm Restaurant Review

: With his late business partner, Angus Brown, Nhan Le gave Grant Park Octopus Bar and brought 8 Arm to Virginia Highland. The atmosphere is totally casual, with a large dining room offering communal tables, banquette seating and some two- and four-top tables. There's also a large patio. Keith Remes takes his executive chef duties to the mound with beautiful scrambled egg dishes for breakfast and healthy grain bowls. Vegetarian needs are well met. He's ably aided by pastry chef Sarah Dodge, whose baking skills even turn out the hamburger buns. For breakfast and brunch, share one of Dodge's huge cinnamon buns, which you may order frosted, but we think that's gilding the lily. Her biscuits are tall, crisp on top and crumbly. Stuff it with some of the chef's house-made pimiento cheese. The burger is a double stack of two thin patties, and what sets this one apart is a swath of what the restaurant says is the "original" Russian dressing, made from roasted beets --- a very tasty addition. Cakes are the desserts to target, and you won't believe the size of the cut. Beer, wine and a full bar are available, so no more BYO.
