Two Special Dinners Coming Up at Burger Up


1 comment

As if Burger Up in 12South wasn't already popular enough, they are opening their doors for two special dinners on upcoming Sundays. I attended their first Farm Dinner last month featuring Triple L ranch, and I can attest that not only was it a wonderful meal, but it was a helluva deal with many full-size courses and a very generous pour on the wines and cocktails.

Burger Up is following up with a less meaty dinner for this month, featuring their partners at Delvin Farms. Long known for one of the most popular CSAs in town, Delvin's 96-acre certified organic farm located in College Grove is also an important purveyor for many area restaurants. The dinner will be held this Sunday, Aug. 26 at 6:30 p.m., with Amy Delvin kicking off the proceedings by giving a short talk about her family farm’s history and their commitment to organic farming. Chefs Nick Melvin and Shane Devereux of Atlanta will create a five-course meal using Delvin produce. For just $50 per person, diners will enjoy a delicious dinner and dessert accompanied by wine and cocktail pairings. Get tickets here.

The following Sunday, Burger Up welcomes the third edition of Lisa Donovan's Buttermilk Road Sunday Supper. Formerly the pastry chef at Margot's and City House, Donovan has sold out two previous suppers to great acclaim. Combining forces with Robin Riddell to pick out some interesting wines, Donovan has been experimenting with many aspects of Southern cuisine for an exclusive group of diners that she caps at 30 participants. A "suggested donation" of $65 for the meal and an additional $15 for cocktail and wine pairings earns you an invitation to what should promise to be a fantastic meal. If this menu doesn't scream Southern, I don't know what would:
