Menu for the Week of September 10, 2012 — The Calm Before The Storm!

Menu for the Week of September 10, 2012 — The Calm Before The Storm!

We sat down this weekend and updated our calendars through the end of the year to see just what we’ve gotten ourselves into, and it turns out the answer is — A Lot! 

  • Field of Greens is September 30th.  If you’ve never been before, it’s an amazing afternoon, and this will be our first year participating!
  • CIVIC III is September 28th.  Details coming soon!
  • The Southern Artisan Cheese Festival in Nashville is October 6th.
  • CIVIC IV is October 26th.  Note — this will likely be our last CIVIC Event in 2012!

And then, it’s basically the holidays, and sleep will be a distant memory until January 2013! 

In anticipation of this, you may have noticed we’ve been a little quiet lately, but don’t worry, we’ve been working:  Silently stock-piling the curing room, sweet-talking our prosciuttos to get them ready by Christmas, testing new recipes for the holidays, canning, training staff, developing new restaurant relationships, breathing, sleeping, planning the upcoming CIVIC nights, finalizing drawings for the Suite C buildout we still hope is right around the corner, and dove hunting, just to name a few.

Thanks to all of the familiar faces we keep seeing every week.  We can hardly believe this time last year we were in the final stages of building out this little dream of ours.  We are so happy to be a part of this community and are really looking forward to being able to attack the holiday season with a year under our belts!  On this note, we know it seems crazy, but if you will be looking to us to create charcuterie platters or other items for your holiday parties — and we hope you will — it is never too late to start emailing us about details to get on our calendar.  The more time we have, the better we can prepare for your special event!

Stay Hungry Atlanta!
