Location: Across from Alpharetta City Hall at 2 South Main Street, Alpharetta, GA 30009

OMG!!! This was one of the best tastes I have been too. Not only because a lot of local (not chain) restaurants where present, but also because the sample prices/quantities ($1-3 per sample) where reasonable and the food… ohhh myyy the food!!! Lets say most places actually cooked there.


List of participating restaurants… and my reviews. I was too busy eating so i forgot to take pics of things.

  • Andretti Grille – I had their House-Smoked Pulled Pork with Smoked Gouda Mac-N-Cheese, it was ok
  • DaVinci’s Donuts – They had a Maple Bacon donut so i had to buy it. It wasn’t bad but I thought it was ok
  • Nothing Bundt Cakes Alpharetta – I tried their really tasty red velvet cake and their chocolate cake.
  • OPULENT – I had an amazing Lump Crab Cake on top of Truffle Corn Broth and Arugula Salad
  • Fresh Lettuce -I had an arugula salad (Arugula, goat cheese, figs, walnuts with Lemon Herb Vinaigrette) it was ok
