SCORE TICKETS TO MEET AND EAT WITH BUCKHEAD’S FINEST CHEFS.
On Sept. 24, the Buckhead restaurant scene will come together for a not-to-be-missed evening of the neighborhood’s best bites and booze. The Buckhead Theatre will once again play host to Taste of Buckhead. In its 11th year, the culinary event allows fans of Buckhead restaurants, such as Restaurant Eugene and Bhojanic, and local foodies to sip, taste and meet the chefs. Keep an eye out for Rock’s Chicken, a new chicken concept by Johnny Rockets. Chef Brian Lee from the JW Marriott Buckhead is a featured chef at the event, and he’ll host cooking demonstrations in the VIP section.
Plus, the Buckhead Business Association, which puts on the event, has doubled the size of the “wine wall,” which was a popular feature at last year’s event. It’s similar to a raffle, where guests buy a $20 ticket to choose a number off the wall and receive a bottle of wine with a minimum value of $20. The bar program will include liquors and more than 50 beers and wines, such as Bombay Sapphire gin and a selection of beers from Sweetwater Brewing. While sipping and strolling around the food tables, guests will also enjoy live jazz music.
The event runs from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. General admission is $50, and 100 VIP tickets are available for $75. VIP tickets come with free parking, a gift bag and entrance to an exclusive reception from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. that will include chef demonstrations, nibbles and specialty cocktails.
