There's dining. There's fine dining. AND then there's this! The fabulous Four Seasons Atlanta put the WOW factor in fine dining with a Garden Table rooftop dining experience for the senses. Spectacular!
Let's start with the exquisite setting. The fragrance of the peonies, the lush greenery and the glistening flatware was inviting, sophisticated and yet casual. We were mesmerized.
Presentation is EVERYTHING. The attention to detail was superb. Each course was presented with an arrangement of signage.
When Marsha Middleton of M-Squared PR invited me to the Garden Table Dining Experience, I knew it would be fabulous just because I know that's Marsha's modus operandi and by the fact that dinner was at the Four Seasons Atlanta. I didn't know, however, just how beyond fabulous it was going to be. My date for the occasion, Gray Miller West Gallery owner, Nic Miller.
The first course, the "Fresh Market Crudo" set the tone and flavor palate for the deliciousness that awaited.
This was no ordinary mint julep. It was extraordinary! Rather (and better than) sugar, the beverage was sweetened with fresh honey from the bees kept by the Four Seasons Atlanta. Same held true for all the herbs that came from their garden.
The freshest, most delicious snapper ever! This was the third course. Amazing! In the photo above, Chef Robert Gerstenecker shows us how the salt baked snapper was prepared and cooked.
Porterhouse and Tomahawk steaks for the main course with a the largest prawn of ever seen. Grilled to perfection and served over an artichoke with a dollop of blue cheese.
The perfect balance of friends, new and old, contributed to a seamless and flawless evening. You too can enjoy a dining experience like this. Garden Table can accommodate parties of eight - eighteen. I promise you, there is nothing this heavenly or divine or delicious in Atlanta. Bravo Marsha Middleton. Bravo Four Seasons Atlanta!
