Taste of Buckhead, Sept. 15, has early list of top food, beverage vendors
“This is just the beginning,” said Smita Solanki, executive director of the BBA. “Taste of Buckhead provides attendees with a great opportunity to sample the best that Buckhead has to offer, while restaurants have the chance to showcase their flavors for the community. It’s no surprise, this event has grown into one of the premier food events in the city of Atlanta.”
Restaurants that have already officially signed on include: 1Kept, 521 Kitchen & Que, A Piece of Cake, Bhojanic, Davio’s, Del Frisco’s, Doraku Sushi, Eclipse di Luna, Georgia Grille, JW’s Nox Creek, Maggiano’s Little Italy, Meehan’s Public House Buckhead, Smokebelly BBQ, St Cecilia and The Big Ketch. And for sweets, it’s Georgetown Cupcake.
Participating beverage vendors are Anheuser-Busch, Bombay Sapphire, J.R. Revelry Bourbon Whiskey, Stoli Vodka, Urban Tree Hard Cider and Virgil Kaine Whiskey.
Additional participants will be announced as they are confirmed.
This year’s Taste of Buckhead will be held in a new Buckhead event space, The Stave Room at American Spirit Works, located in a space previously occupied by Mason Murer Art Gallery in the trendy Sweetwater Design District on Armour Circle in South Buckhead.
Traditionally, this popular event brings together more than 30 chefs and representatives from some of Buckhead’s most popular restaurants for a one-of-a-kind, upscale tasting event. This year’s Taste of Buckhead will also see the return of a silent auction—following a one-year hiatus—and a VIP experience.
General admission tickets for the event are $50. VIP tickets, which include an exclusive tour of the distillery, specialty cocktails and exclusive food samples, are available for $75.
Instead of a Wine Wall that has featured in previous years, the event this year will feature a Spirits Wall, which will include wine. Attendees can purchase a ticket for $20 and take home a bottle of spirit that has been donated. Proceeds will benefit the Buckhead Business Foundation, the charitable arm of BBA, which in turn will donate the funds to The Giving Kitchen.
Gas South is returning as a presenting sponsor this year. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit the newly re-launched online website tasteofbuckhead.org.
