First "Hotel Restaurant Week" Kicks Off
Restaurant weeks are ubiquitous across the country, each one giving diners access to affordable, gourmet meals at the nation’s top eateries. This year, for the first time anywhere, Atlanta is home to a new event to highlight hotel restaurants. From April 2 through April 9, you can enjoy a $25 (not including tax and tip) three-course dinner at a multitude of the ATL’s hotspots.
Chef Robert Gerstenecker of Park 75 at the Four Seasons, Atlanta created the promotion to change the perception of hotel restaurants. “I hope Hotel Restaurant Week will remind locals that we are open every night of the week and it doesn’t require a birthday cake to enjoy a meal here,” he says. “I want this to be better than other restaurant weeks,” Gerstenecker adds. “I want to bring people into my kitchen and give them tours of the terrace garden and bee apiary so they’re really exposed to what we do here.”
Participating restaurants include: Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Spice Market outpost at the W Midtown; the Livingston Restaurant at Georgian Terrace; French brasserie Au Pied de Cochon at the InterContinental Buckhead; and The Café at The Mansion on Peachtree, among others.
