What: The South does indulgent breakfasts like nobody’s business, and biscuits with sausage gravy have cured many a hangover. But at King + Duke in Atlanta, biscuits and gravy seemed a little…light. So they top their house-made biscuits with a buttermilk-brined, deep-fried chicken thigh and smother it all in a chicken–based breakfast sausage gravy. Two over-easy eggs top this creation. Fried chicken and biscuits and gravy? Sign us up.

Wash it down with: The Bloody Buck resembles most Bloody Marys, but the ice cubes in the drink are made with venison broth—so the cocktail gets ever more meaty and savory as you sip. The garnish of house-made jerky doesn’t hurt either.
