Your Progressive Dinner Guide to Alpharetta’s Avalon

In Food + Drink

Wine Flight at Cru Wine Bar

With a selection of more than 350 wines, Cru Wine Bar is the perfect place to start your progressive culinary tour at Alpharetta’s Avalon. Choose a glass or red or white – and if you can’t decide, opt for a flight curated with tastes from similar grape varieties, regions or styles. And, a flight goes well with imported and domestic cheeses to get your palate ready for an evening of foodie exploration.

Small Bites at Rumi’s Kitchen

While Rumi’s Kitchen is a Persian restaurant at its core, the menu is constantly supplemented by dishes pulling influences from other countries, keeping the cuisine at the forefront of the Atlanta dining scene. Rumi’s extensive wine list and unique cocktails certainly add to the one-of-a-kind dining experience. We suggest trying a variety of starters here for a taste of Persia. Start with the Hummus Tahini G, the Yogurt Duo and Mirza Ghasemi with smoked eggplant, tomato and garlic. You can taste Chef Ali Mesghali’s cooking perfection with each bite. These small plates will have you ready to book your next big dinner here.

Dinner at Oak Steakhouse

Voted by Travel + Leisure as the best steakhouse in the United States, Oak Steakhouse is a sophisticated option for your palate on your night of indulgence. The seasonally-inspired menu is the perfect spot to enjoy a craft cocktail with an entree you will not soon forget. During nice weather seasons, you have the opportunity to enjoy the fresh air on the patio and take in the hustle and bustle of the mini city in a city that is Avalon.

Dessert at Cafe Intermezzo

Next, it is time for a taste of Europe without ever having to leave Alpharetta. Cafe Intermezzo is a Metro Atlanta favorite serving lunch, dinner, dessert, and coffee, which is your next stop on this foodie tour. Try the Heavenly Lemon Torte, Cookies & Cream Cheesecake or Frutti di Bosco. You can’t go wrong with their menu – and additional pastries are available by visiting the pastry display! Tip: Be prepared to possibly have a short wait as they do not take reservations.

Post Dinner Coffee at Caffe Antico

A progressive dinner night at Alpharetta’s Avalon wouldn’t be complete without browsing the variety of shops. Grab a specialty latte from Caffe Antico and continue your night with a walk taking in Avalon’s nightlife.
