Located in the middle of all the hustle and bustle that is 14th and Peachtree, TAP is one of my many faves in the Midtown area. I hadn't visited in a while and was pleased as peach when I heard Chef David Connolly was introducing a new Fall menu. Among many highlights I can recall after that culinary extravaganza - if you an find a nook along the staircase, go for it!, make room for some of their special beverages, and do not overlook the chicken wings with street corn or the roasted mushrooms as too simple - they will rock your taste buds!
If you decide to visit, be sure to check on these absolutely yummy Fall additions to the menu. They have a beer brunch with Terrapin at noon on Sep26th featuring 4 courses and 4 pairings for just $40. Get your tickets here! Menu includes:
Every year that Diner en Blanc has been hosted in Atlanta, I have wanted to participate and missed it for one reason or the other. I learned of the event as it was hosted across the world and couldn't wait for it to make an appearance in my city. Somehow, the dates never aligned. Bt this year, my last year here, looks like the Universe heard me out! I was invited to be a media member and enjoyed front row seats to all the organization and participation of an event of this magnitude. Diner en Blanc Atlanta 2015 was a blast! Firstly, the amount of secrecy involved is amazing, and sure enough nobody blabbed. Secondly, the fact that they shut down Peachtree Street by the Fox Theater was unbelievable. Lucky for me, my vantage position at Cafe Mims in the Georgian Terrace Hotel was perfect as I watched the event unfold. I arrived early as sound checks were completed so I got a glimpse of the live entertainment in store. Then the white waves started rolling in. It was beautiful to see groups of people walk in and set up their tables - each one more beautiful than the other. And just the sheer level of creativity. Nobody was winning any prices for best dressed but folks were so into it - kudos for going all in! The entire block was filled with participants setting up as the evening's entertainment began with a French band. The lead singer was female and boy did she set the tone for a Parisian evening! She was followed by a violinist that killed it! I have no other words to describe his talent. Consider yourself lucky if you catch his performance. And then of course, the DJ took the night away. The official event start was announced by everyone twirling their white dinner napkins in the air. Then white balloons were handed out and eventually even sparklers for everyone to hold high at the same time. We sipped on Apothic wines as we watched the evening fade into night. Peachtree street looked beautiful amidst all the revelry and I was glad I was able to participate this year. Photos do not do justice to actually being present at the event but hope you can get an idea form the few shots I was able to take before the night lights made images blurry. I highly recommend participating in the event and am certainly going to try to do so in the next city I move to!
10 year home!
Atlanta GA was my home for my first ten years in the United States - the city has so much to offer :)
