I love this time of year. We are about to kick off the festival and restaurant week season. Next week, March 8-14, is Inman Park Restaurant Week and Buckhead Restaurant Week. Great places like Sotto Sotto and Shaun's are offering $25 pp tasting menus. This is a great chance to experience some of Atlanta's top restaurants without totally breaking the bank.
Also this weekend, if you are interested in wine take time to check out the Midtown International Wine Crawl. Five Midtown restaurants are offering discounted wine and food pairings. You simply register at Livingston Restaurant in the Georgian Terrace Hotel, then make your way between the locations. The registration fee benefits Haitian relief funds. I did this last year on a perfect March Saturday with friends. It was a great way to kick off the spring and sample some some great wine.
