Inman Park Restaurant WeekBy Collin Kelley, Editor

Inman Park Restaurant Week is back for its Spring incarnation March 8-14, after packing in diners during last Fall’s inaugural event. Atlanta’s first suburb (1889 for all you history buffs) has become a dining destination with more than a dozen restaurants in just a few blocks.

“Last year’s event just packed them in,” said Wisteria chef/owner Jason Hill. “We’re expecting another huge success.”

During Restuarnt Week, diners can sample 13 of the neighborhood’s eateries, which will have special prix fixe menus ranging in prices from $15 to $35.
The event will benefit the Believe In Me Foundation, which supports the education and welfare of children with autism and is led by Chef Shaun Doty, who owns Shaun’s on Edgewood Avenue. The participating restaurants will donate $3,000 to the charity.

Additionally, each restaurant will be offering raffle tickets for $1 that will go towards the charity, and the winner will win a hosted hors douerves, beer and wine party for 30 people at Chef Kevin Rathbun’s (Rathbun’s, Kevin Rathbun Steak) new home in Lenox Park. Inman Park restaurant chefs will be on hand at the event creating a unique appetizer to pair with a wine.
