Things 2 Do

Here’s a great reason to try new restaurant, meal

Want to try some goat cheese pimento fritters as an appetizer? How about some shrimp and Geechee boy grits or a Benihana Delight for an entree? Could you go for some peanut butter pie to wash it all down?

Alpharetta’s Restaurant Week returns Feb. 22-29. With more than 25 spots participating, diners have their choice of visiting an old favorite or taste-testing something new.

“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 to try something new on the menu.”

Participants will offer a special three-course dinner menu from $20-$45 and many also offer three-course lunches for $15-$30. Beverages, tax and gratuity are not included in the pricing.

The Alpharetta Restaurant Week participating restaurants currently include: Alpine Bakery & Trattoria, Barleygarden Kitchen & Craft Bar, Benihana, Botiwalla, Chiringa, Citizen Soul, Coalition Food and Beverage, Colletta, CRU Food & Wine Bar, Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, Flatlands Bourbon and Bayou, Hudson Grille Alpharetta, Jekyll Brewing City Center, Kona Grill, M Thai Street Food, MADE Kitchen & Cocktails, Mercantile Social, Oak Steakhouse, Pure Taqueria, Ray’s at Killer Creek, Salt Factory Pub, Secreto Kitchen & Bar, Southern Porch, True Food Kitchen, Village Tavern and Vinny’s on Windward.

Alpharetta has gained the reputation as a top foodie destination of the Southeast with its four cooking schools, the Alpharetta Farmers Market, all the restaurants, the Taste of Alpharetta, currently scheduled for May 7, and Food Truck Alley, which takes place Thursdays from May to October.
