Chef’s Table Dinner at Local Three with Chef Chris Hall and Asparagus and Prosciutto Salad
Earlier this year, our On The Road culinary adventures launched a series of local dinners called The Chef’s Table Dinner Series. We have had two dinners so far and both have been a great success.
While we enjoy traveling to special destinations with our culinary tours (and we will be doing that again this fall – details are coming soon), we have also decided to create very special evenings for our guests in the Atlanta area and some nearby cities.
Whether they are in restaurants or hosted in homes, these dinners give the participants access to a culinary experience that few have the opportunity to enjoy. It is a celebration of the chef and people who really enjoy and appreciate exceptional food and wine.
Our first Chef’s Table Dinner was held in April at Local Three Kitchen and Bar in Atlanta, Georgia. Chef and Managing Partner, Chris Hall, whose resume includes Le Bec Fin (Philadelphia) and Fourth & Swift and Canoe (both in Atlanta), was excited to partner with us on this inaugural event.
Local Three was named Best New Restaurant 2011 by MetroMix Atlanta. It lives up to its accolades by preparing their dishes with the highest quality of seasonal and local ingredients to create a fresh and delightful meal incorporating innovative southern elements.
Chef Hall created an extraordinary menu for our dinner and paired each of the six courses with a wine appropriately suited to the dish. One of our guests opted for a beer pairing, which he thoroughly enjoyed as they paired the dishes with craft beers.
Each course throughout the evening was better than the one prior to it. Just when you thought a dish would not outshine another, the Lamb Sausage followed the Pan Roasted Alaskan Black Cod and we were all captivated by the wonderful flavors of the house-made sausage.
Wonderful menu and looks like a great time was had by all! Looking forward to trying all of the superb ATL restaurants now that I will be spending more time there come Fall!
I also like Local Three. It’s just across the street from where we live. We go there about once or twice a month. Glad to see your post on them. They are really popular and doing well. Your salad look yummy!
Simple can be the very best part of a grand meal. Sounds like a delicious salad, and what a neat opportunity for you!
Love the charcuterie at local three… Love the idea of going on culinary tours in one’s own city. Instead of relying on word of mouth to try new places, you can check several out, makes for great fun!
That kitchen sounds incredible! I have a friend who makes it out to Atlanta often so I’ll share this post with her. In the meantime, I’m looking forward to trying the dressing for this salad.
