Let’s face it, Atlanta has a TON of amazing restaurants and venues for Private Events!  While having options is a great thing – it can also be confusing – so this blog post will focus on a few of my favorite restaurants that would be PERFECT for Rehearsal Dinners, Bridal Luncheons/Showers, Guy’s Night Out, Birthday or Anniversary Party’s as well as any other special occasions!!

My recommendations are based on factors such as quality of food and service, atmosphere, ability to accommodate various sized groups, ease of access and flexibility of the venue on menu as well as other details.

Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse at Phipps Plaza

Davio’s Atlanta is located in the heart of Buckhead, Atlanta’s hot spot for the best shopping and the finest dining.

As a Northern Italian Steakhouse their menu includes – Aged New York Strip Sirloin, Filet Mignon, Porterhouse and Veal Chop. The menu also includes well known classic Davio’s recipes such as Tagliatelle Bolognese, Crispy Chicken Livers, Homemade Sausages, Veal Scaloppini and an amazing assortment of Davio’s Spring Rolls that are some of the most delicious tasty morsels around.

To satisfy your sweet tooth, you will find a large variety of desserts, each made in-house daily to even  include house-made gourmet ice cream.

Gordon Biersch

Inspired by the Reinheitsgebot of 1516, the Gordon Biersch experience rests upon the foundations of purity, simplicity and precision. This philosophy is most recognizable in their selection of authentic German lagers, each crafted on-site using only malted barley, hops, yeast and pure, filtered water. This same dedication extends to their kitchen, where the chefs create fresh dishes that perfectly balance comfort and excitement.

With two locations in the Atlanta area {Midtown and Buckhead} Gordon Biersch is an excellent option for any Private Event.   They will customize a menu and package to suit your tastes and budget.  They will be happy to accommodate special vegetarian or dietary needs.
