Alpharetta’s well-established and eclectic dining scene continues to break the mold and challenge the idea that big time flavors are only found in big cities. Whether checking out one of the 200 restaurants, learning how to create mouthwatering dishes at one of the city’s cooking schools or picking up some fresh produce at the Alpharetta Farmers Market (Saturdays, Apr. 3 – Oct. 30, 2021), visitors and residents see why Alpharetta is a foodie’s paradise.

Alpharetta restaurants have gotten creative with their outside dining areas in the colder months of the calendar. Many eateries throughout the city have added fire pits, heaters and even igloos to their outdoor spaces, extending the al fresco season indefinitely.

“The vibrant city of Alpharetta is filled with an abundance of locally owned and chef-driven restaurants,” said Janet Rodgers, president and CEO of the Alpharetta Convention and Visitors Bureau. “Events like Alpharetta Restaurant Week highlight these eateries and give locals and visitors the chance to try out a new restaurant or revisit one of their favorite spots. It’s also a great opportunity for diners to support these vital businesses and their staff members who are working hard to bring us exceptional cuisine every day.”

Reservations at restaurants are recommended. Multiple Alpharetta Restaurant Week participating restaurants are extending their special pricing to take out orders as well.
