Host Buckhead Business Association (BBA) today revealed a preliminary list of participating restaurants and exciting details surrounding the must-attend event.

“Taste of Buckhead has experienced tremendous success since inception in 2003 and surpasses our expectations each year,” said Smita Solanki, executive director of the BBA. “With a growing list of Atlanta hot spots and beverage distributors participating, we have no doubt that this will be our biggest and best event yet.”

Taste of Buckhead 2017 will bring together more than 20 chefs and representatives from the city’s most popular and trendsetting restaurants for a one-of-a-kind, upscale experience.  Participating restaurants this year include American Cut, Bold American, The Capital Grille, Eclipse Di Luna, Gusto!, Meehan’s Buckhead, Rock’s Chicken and Fries, Seasons 52, Smokebelly, Southern Art, Southern Bistro, Southern Gentleman and The Big Ketch.

Back by popular demand, attendees will also have the opportunity to purchase a ‘Spirit Wall’ raffle ticket for just $20 to take home a bottle of spirit or wine. The proceeds generated from this fundraiser (spirits and wines have been donated) will benefit the Buckhead Business Foundation, the charitable arm of BBA. The Foundation will in turn donate the funds to Second Helpings, a worthy cause intended to fight food waste and food insecurity in metro Atlanta.
