Fall for these autumnal dishes in Alpharetta

September 14, 2017

With fall also comes the chance to have some of our favorite fall foods. Here are some of the specials that Alpahretta restaurants are highlighting for fall.


Butcher and Brew

Jambalaya Fritters with Mango Chutney
The Jambalaya Fritter is a great snack or starter to your meal at Butcher and Brew. Cheesy, spicy jambalaya rice is rolled up in a ball and flash fried. The fritters are served with a tangy mango chutney. Butcher and Brew has plenty of tables outside for enjoying the lovely weather, or sit at the bar, watch some football and wash down those fritters with one of our tasty draft beers.



I don’t know about you, but I crave pasta come fall. Colletta makes theirs in house adding incredible flavor and texture. Two fall favorites are the pappardelle, featuring duck ragu, toasted pistachio and black truffle, as well as the black pepper tagliatelle with carbonara, pork, egg yolk, chives and pecorino cheese.



Madras Chettinaad

Looking to spice up your fall? Look no further than the fragrant flavors you’ll find at Madras Chettinaad Indian restaurant. During lunch, the all you can eat buffet has an array of specialties with both meat and vegetarian options. At dinner order everything a la carte, choosing from Chicken Chettinaad to Dosais (large crepes stuffed with vegetables) or seafood specialties.


Salt Factory

Shepherd’s Pie
Did you know that Salt Factory was featured on the Food Network for their Shepherd’s Pie? This hearty dish is perfect for fall and is served in a cast iron skillet. Contrary to traditional Shepherd’s Pie, Salt Factory makes theirs with Braised Leg of Lamb, instead of beef for a unique appeal. Also in the mix are pearl onions and a rosemary demi. But the crust is amazingly good too, made from a mix of cheddar and potato puree. Wash it all down with one of the many craft beers you’ll find at Salt Factory.


Secreto Kitchen

Apple Brined Pork Chop
Apples are pretty synonymous with fall, right? Many of us venture to North Georgia to go apple picking come fall, don’t we? So, you’ll love this pork chop from Secreto Kitchen. Adding to the chop are the sides. Pimiento mac and cheese as well as bacon braised greens are the perfect comfort side dishes for fall. The cocktails at Secreto are terrific too. Order a classic like a Manhattan or the Negroni. If you are feeling adventurous, get the Repossessed (my personal favorite), made with whiskey, Biscotti Liqueur, Ginger Beer and bitters.


South Main Kitchen

Country Captain Hand Pie with Mint-Tahini Yogurt & Red Cabbage Chow Chow
Country Captain, originating in Savannah, Georgia, is a smothered chicken dish with curry, tomato, peanut and coconut. Those flavors are then mixed with braised pork shoulder and stuffed into a hand pie. And who doesn’t love a super delicious meat pie? Located in the heart of Alpharetta, it is fun to walk around the various shops before settling in to dinner at South Main Kitchen. Tip: South Main also has a lovely patio to enjoy the crisp fall air.
