Al Fresco Dining in Atlanta

This looks like a fun way to dine al fresco this summer: We hear that the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta has launched a Garden Table on the hotel’s fifth floor terrace, where diners sit under tents overlooking the Atlanta skyline. 

Guests booking the Garden Table get a multi-course meal featuring ingredients from the terrace garden, courtesy of Executive Chef Robert Gerstenecker and his team, that includes a tableside cooking experience from the Big Green Egg grill and smoker.

Over the past five years, Chef Gerstenecker has transformed the Hotel’s fifth floor terrace into an urban garden. Each of the six planters includes a variety of different plants ranging from herbs to vegetables and edible flowers. Additionally, Gerstenecker brought his home-based bee garden to the terrace to increase pollination within the garden and the surrounding Midtown green spaces, and also for their honey production. The bees have produced nearly 1,000 pounds of honey since 2008.

Garden Table is available for up to 14 people with a minimum booking of eight. (Drinks are not included.) Reservations for Garden Table are available, pending weather, by calling 404-253-3840.
