ATLANTA - Alpharetta Restaurant Week showcases city’s culinary scene:
There are several reasons they call it "Awesome Alpharetta" — but the city’s diverse lineup of top-notch restaurants is definitely at the top of the list. And this week, Alpharetta is shining a spotlight on its culinary scene with an event designed to showcase the very best it has to offer.
Alpharetta Restaurant Week officially kicked off Sunday and continues through Saturday, Feb. 27, with more than two dozen restaurants participating this year.
The concept is simple: those restaurants will offer a specially priced three-course dinner menu (and some lunches, too), giving visitors an easy way to try their signature dishes and get a tasty overview of the restaurant’s culinary concept.
Organizers of this year’s event say supporting local restaurants is more important than ever, given the major hit they’ve taken due to the pandemic. Many of the featured restaurants have outdoor spaces for diners more comfortable with open-air seating, and many are also making their special three-course dinner menus available for both dine-in and takeout.
