Food That Rocks showcases local flavor!
The 21st annual Taste of Atlanta is made up of four mini-festivals this year, highlighting different parts of the city and what makes them flavorful. On Aug. 19 and 20, Food That Rocks, located at City Springs in Sandy Springs, will offer ticket-holders unlimited bites from local restaurants including The Select, il Giallo, Kid Cashew/Wood Fire Grill, Chef Rob’s Caribbean Cafe and more, plus samples of libations and live musical entertainment.
Chefs, bakers, brewers, sommeliers and mixologists will be on hand for live demonstrations at this 21-and-up event. “Enjoy mouthwatering tastes from the community’s best restaurants,” says Taste of Atlanta Founder Dale DeSena. “Good food equals good mood!”
Though the setup of the festival is different this year, the goal for Taste of Atlanta is unchanged: to give back to the culinary community and support local restaurants while connecting patrons to their next unforgettable meal. Two local nonprofits designed to assist food service workers and families with food insecurity, Giving Kitchen and Second Helpings Atlanta, will benefit from the event. Tickets are $95 per person and include both days of the event. Simply Buckhead is a media sponsor.
