Open Hand Atlanta honored Buckhead chef Gerry Klaskala with its first-ever Kevin Rathbun award during its annual fundraiser party on Sept. 18. Rathbun presented the honors to his friend, who also is owner of Buckhead restaurant Aria, for his years of support to Open Hand Atlanta, the nation’s largest provider of home-delivered, medically appropriate meals and nutrition education.
LDV Hospitality is on a roll in Buckhead. Since December 2014, the restaurant group has opened two spots in Buckhead: Corso Coffee and in September, Dolce Italian, located in Buckhead Atlanta and featuring a 50-seat wrap-around outdoor terrace perfect for outdoor dining. The seasonal menu, developed by Italian chef Paolo Dorigato, includes everything from homemade pastas and meatballs to indulgent seafood risotto and Neapolitan-style pizzas.
Who doesn’t love chocolate during the holidays? Now you can pick up the sweet treat from two spots in Buckhead Atlanta. Find an array of holiday chocolates, such as chocolate-covered candied orange slices, seasonally inspired truffles and handmade caramels, at Cacao Buckhead. And save room after your next burger at Shake Shack because they just introduced their latest collaboration with a Brooklyn based artisanal chocolate maker: Mast Brothers Shake Shack Buttermilk Chocolate Bar (and it’s good, y’all).
