For those looking to tweet and eat, the addition of social media lounges will allow attendees to sit back, relax—and post to their heart’s content! Social posts using the event’s hashtag (#BOAParty15) will be displayed on giant screens in the lounges to encourage online interaction.
Hungry attendees can also look forward to a new, special pavilion at the event called “The Coop.” This interactive area, presented by Springer Mountain Farms, a family-owned, naturally raised chicken farm located in northeast Georgia, will house notable chefs who will create tastings paired with craft beers. Attendees can lounge in the Coop’s seating area and interact with chefs Matt Basford of Canoe; Rusty Bowers of Pinestreet Market; Jeff Gardner of Common Quarter; Linda Harrell of Cibo E Beve; Savannah Haseler of Twain’s; Daniel Porubiansky of Century House Tavern; Todd Richards of The Pig and The Pearl and The Shed; and Drew Van Leuvan of Grain and Seven Lamps, as well as pick up chicken recipes, play games of cornhole and more.
“We are seeing people begin to pay more and more attention to what’s in their food and how it was raised,” noted Dale Faunce, marketing director for Springer Mountain Farms. “Since chefs are the ideal people to educate us about food, we’re proud to facilitate these experiences by making them enjoyable and entertaining. ‘The Coop’ is a perfect example of this as it gives Best of Atlanta attendees the opportunity to have one-on-one interactions with some of the city’s best chefs.”
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.
