I think I was about 8 years old when I attended my first progressive dinner. My Girl Scout troop arranged a progressive dinner at three different homes so we could all earn our nutrition badge…or something like that! In my Southern girl mind, these dinners involved crock pots with packaged or pre-made concoctions. The recent progressive dinner I attended with the Atlanta Food Blogger Society was nothing of the sort!
We started our meal with appetizers at Publik Draft House, followed by dinner and dessert at Baraonda. These sister restaurants are two of my favorite places to eat before taking in a show at The Fabulous Fox Theatre, and my-oh-my was this meal a showstopper. About halfway through dinner, I told Erica Smith from A Taste of Our City that there was no way I could eat anymore…but we kept going!
Here’s a menu rundown from our Progressive Dinner in Atlanta
First course – platters of appetizers at Publik Draft House.
Second course – pizza, salad, and foccacia at Baraonda
Third course – Mama mia, y’all! Pastas, fresh veggies, and even veal swimming in marinara sauce.
I’ve had a blast getting to dine at so many amazing A-town restaurants with the Atlanta Food Blogger Society. Thanks so much to my dining companions that evening including:
- A Taste of Our City
- Eating With Erica
- Pigskin Peaches
- We Like to Cook
- Happily Eating
- Sprinkles & Tiaras
- Red Velvet Confections
