More than 90 of Atlanta’s most notable and on-the-rise restaurants have signed on to participate in this year’s Taste of Atlanta, which will take place October 24-26 in Midtown at Tech Square. With eateries featured from both inside and outside the perimeter, festival-goers will be able to savor truly authentic flavors that represent every corner of the city.
New this year, to help attendees pinpoint their local favorites or discover new dining treasures during Taste of Atlanta, the festival will take food lovers on a culinary tour through the city’s many diverse neighborhoods. Whether it’s Buckhead’s St. Cecilia, Virginia-Highland’s The Original El Taco, Roswell’s Little Alley Steakhouse, Decatur’s No. 246, Brookhaven’s THERE, Alpharetta’s Milton’s or Midtown’s Table at Ten, festival-goers will experience a variety of signature sensations from each community. With such a smorgasbord of cuisine available – from classic Southern specialties, South of the border-inspired fare, Japanese fusions and coastal European delicacies – there’s sure to be a dish to satisfy every craving.
Keeping with tradition, Taste of Atlanta will kick off the festival’s 13th year of fantastic fare with an exclusive block party on Friday, October 24 to prep and pump up taste buds for the food-filled weekend! The event, themed Culinary Matrimony, will feature local celebrity chefs, including Patric Bell, Ron Eyester, Jay Swift and Tyler Williams, for an evening of both famed and more obscure flavor pairings. Guests can also look forward to live music from Electric Avenue, a PleaseRock tribute band, and bountiful booze. Select restaurants, including Seven Lamps, Fox Bros. BBQ, The Optimist and Buttermilk Kitchen, will also be onsite to serve up delicious bites.
521 Kitchen and Que = Our Pick for Holiday Meat!
521 Kitchen and Que is located in Atlanta off Roswell Road and is our pick for ordering your Holiday Meal this year, and dinner tonight!
Owned by local Atlanta couple, Drew and Roma Kirkland, this is by far one of the best BBQ’s we have been to. One thing that strikes us in particular about this restaurant is their commitment to locally sourced and fresh food. Also, they are vegetarian and gluten free friendly. Vegetarian? A BBQ restaurant is vegetarian friendly? Yes, believe it or not, as Roma told us, there are quite a lot of vegetarians that love to grab a bite at 521 Kitchen and Que.
As someone that works with my significant other, I loved the fact that the “521” in 521 Kitchen and Que is their anniversary date. Awe… Heart melts.
So, long story short; We sampled all the yummy goodies they have and for your holiday meals, do yourself a favor and let them cook it.
Must have picks:
Turkey – Moist and Delicious. All your guests will be impressed.
Kale Slaw – So delightful! It doesn’t have the bitterness you might expect from Kale. It is definitely worth getting
Baked Sweet Potato – Cooked perfectly, season with salt and pepper
Brisket – Melt in your mouth delicious!
Let’s just say that we loved everything we tried and we are certain you will too.
Go ahead and try them for lunch or dinner! While you are there, place your holiday order! Do it quickly!
Murphy’s Farmer’s Table Dinner Series Continues
ATLANTA – Any frequenter of Murphy’s knows that each plate is made up of delicious ingredients, locally grown and thoughtfully prepared. To honor the sources of these ingredients, Murphy’s is excited to continue their Farmer’s Table Dinner Series. Already proven to be a fan favorite after a sold out dinner in June, the series will take place the last Wednesday of each month. Guests are invited to enjoy a multi-course meal highlighting local farmers and their contributions to Murphy’s menu.
The first dinner of the series, a successful “trial run”, took place Wednesday, June 24, 2015 and featured farmer Richard Kessler (“RJ”) from Planted Rock Farms. The 4-course dinner included wine pairings and a variety of summer-inspired dishes, thoughtfully prepared by Chef de Cuisine Ricky Navas. Guests also had the opportunity to meet and mingle with RJ and Chef Ricky.
The next dinner will take place Wednesday, July 29 and will be hosted by Geezer’s Farm out of Gurley, Alabama, where Farmer David Sisk will travel to Atlanta to join the feast.
Melting Pot 1/4 Off the 4th!
Midtown-Atlanta’s scrumptious Melting Pot will have a delicious 4th of July menu available–and it’s 1/4 off! Skip the grill on your holiday, because there will be a meal for everyone to enjoy aside from burgers and hot dogs. Personally, I’d get all over that watermelon and feta salad. And the Buffalo chicken.
