The first bite into a flawlessly cooked burger… when the spice level is just right on your wings… mac and cheese that has the perfect amount of melty, cheesy goodness… We LOVE a great bite of food. There is truly nothing as satisfying as a well-made meal, and Alpharetta is here to deliver, inviting you to dive in to 45 exceptional dining experiences during Alpharetta Restaurant Week! Taking place February 26 through March 4, 45 restaurants are participating citywide, promising a next-level lineup of classic local cuisine you’ve always adored and new favorites waiting to be explored! Throughout the week, featured Alpharetta Restaurant Week eateries boast special multi-course menus with prix fixe prices ranging from $20 to $35+ for lunch and $25 to $50+ for dinner (with many participating restaurants offering both lunch and dinner options!).
To help guide your epicurean experience, here are just a few of the highlights you can expect on these exclusive menus.
1) Cabernet Steakhouse (Lunch & Dinner)
Cabernet Steakhouse is a dining experience you won’t want to miss. Offering unique menus for lunch and dinner, you could go twice during ARW and still find new flavors to discover! Lunch menu offerings for a three-course meal include a divine Lobster Bisque, the Frutti Di Mare combining mussels, scallops, shrimp, linguine and a mouthwatering marinara sauce, and a New York Style Cheesecake. On the menu for dinner, you can enjoy the Appetizer Sampler for your first course, offering an array of Mini Crab Cakes, Lamb Lollipops (they are TRULY amazing), and their Beer Satay. For the second course, select the 10 OZ Bone In Filet served with Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes and Sweet Chile and Bacon Brussel Sprouts or indulge in the Herb Crusted Yellowfin Tuna served with Shiitake Mushroom Risotto, Asparagus, Green Beans, Carrots and a heavenly Port Wine Glaze. Round out your dining experience with the third course, choosing between the Crème Brulee or the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake. If you attend with your partner or a friend, maybe even order one of each to share… if you can bring yourself to spare a bite…!
2) 19 North (Dinner)
Located in the beautiful Atlanta Marriott Alpharetta, 19 North offers upscale dining with an approachable ambiance. During Alpharetta Restaurant Week, you’ll have the chance to savor Goat Cheese Beignets for the first course, with a dash of cracked black pepper, honey and lemon. The second course is sure to delight with their Line Caught Salmon, featuring oyster mushroom risotto and a yummy orange thyme glaze. Be sure to save room for the third course—the Southern Pecan Chocolate Cannoli served with a Chantilly berries sauce is a must!
3) Colletta (Lunch & Dinner)
It’s no surprise that Colletta is a beloved restaurant for Alpharetta locals and visitors alike. Offering a scrumptious menu that never misses the mark, any meal at Colletta leaves guests satisfied and looking forward to the next visit. This year, their ARW menu for lunch and dinner offers new selections and we can’t wait to try them! For the first course, guests can choose the Mussels, cooked in white wine with spicy tomato, saffron, lemon and herbs, or opt for the Burrata served with pickled strawberry, white balsamic, basil and focaccia. Offering 4 selections for the second course, you’ll have plenty of flavors to choose from, but we think the Chicken Milanese sounds like a must-try. Combining parmesan polenta, brown butter, caper berries and charred lemon, this dish will make your tastebuds tingle! Don’t forget dessert, with Colletta’s third course including their Ricotta Zeppole and a Strawberry “Shortcake”!
4) City Eats Kitchen (Lunch & Dinner)
Newer to Alpharetta’s dining scene, we can guarantee you’ve never experienced anything like City Eats Kitchen during ARW! Explore bold new flavors when you enjoy 3 delightful courses from their lunch and dinner menus. For lunch, start with the Chick N’ Pickles, dive into the Indiana-Style Breaded Pork Tenderloin Sandwich, and finish strong with the Krispy Kreme® Bread Pudding. Heading over for dinner? Don’t miss the Bacon-Wrapped Cherry Peppers or the Fried Green Tomatoes to start, the World-Famous Hot Brown for a take on a classic Louisville dish as your main, and the decadent Double Chocolate Layer Cake for dessert.
5) Foundation Social Eatery (Dinner)
Another recent addition to Alpharetta, Foundation Social Eatery delivers with their ARW dinner menu. With 2 choices per course and 3 courses total, there’s plenty of flavors to savor. Kick-start your meal with the Confit Pork Ribs for 2 ribs garnished with pickled red onion, scallion, and roasted pork jus. For your main, choose the Chicken Bolognese for a fabulous fettuccini tossed with herbed ricotta, arugula, parmesan, and oreganata. Give your tastebuds a grand finale with the final course, trying either the Canelé, a house-made canelé pastry with caramel and vanilla ice cream, or the Vanilla Pot De Crème, with strawberry soup and shortbread crumbs.
The food scene in Alpharetta is worth celebrating every week, but especially during Alpharetta Restaurant Week, where talented chefs across the city show off their creative culinary flair! Turn your visit into a foodie getaway when you book a stay at any of Alpharetta’s 30 modern hotels, some even featuring their own ARW participating restaurants!
