Bold Bites Abound. Dig In.

New favorites or traditional hits? Read on to see what a few of our gems have to offer!

The next time some wannabe restaurant expert blurts out that you must journey to Buckhead for great restaurants, please tell them 1998 wants their cliché back. This once accurate rule-of-thumb is quite laughable to current-day Roswell insiders as 2024 Roswell more than competes favorably against pick-your-year Buckhead when it comes to elite dining.

Roswell's food scene is a true chameleon, with everything from swanky goldmines to covert counter service gems to take home and cook-in-your-oven shining stars. And the icing on the cake—in some cases literally? Most of them are taking part in the upcoming Roswell Restaurant Weeks 2024. It’s time to bring those outdated foodie bullet-points back to the future with the ultimate cheat sheet:

Bask Steakhouse

Bask Steakhouse: Prepare yourself to feast like royalty. Tim Stevens, the prime steakhouse master from Buckhead's golden years, is bringing his A-game to the table. Brace yourself for a mouthwatering adventure with his exclusive event menu. It's a carnivore's dream come true! The show-stopper appetizer, elk carpaccio, will make your palate dance with joy. And as for the main course, the bavette "flap steak," cooked to Pittsburgh-rare perfection, is sure to make you feel like a king. Of course, steaks are prepared to your preferred temperature, but for a cut of such magnitude, trust me on this: order it Pittsburgh rare.

Table & Main

Table & Main: Plan to have your gustatory modality do the tango as T&M is the creme de la creme of southern cuisine. The RRW menu boasts their mouthwatering fried chicken that will make you weak at the knees. It's so good, only the second coming of the legendary Deacon Burton himself could match the yardbird of chef Woody Back! And if that's not enough to get your heart racing, the starter of hogs n' quilts with succulent pit master-worthy BBQ pork in a cozy blanket will make you feel like you've hit the jackpot of southern cooking.

Wegman's Bayou Louisiana Kitchen

Wegman’s Bayou Louisiana Kitchen: Why travel all the way to Nawlins for sizzling Cajun grub? You don’t even need to make the drive to Douglasville or Acworth. Chef Marc Wegman's got you covered with his mouth-watering Ponchatoula trio of signature dishes! And don't forget to wrap things up with his famous beignets - the ultimate cherry…or at least donut, on top of a delicious meal.

A Peach of a Party

A Peach of a Party: Craving some RRW magic but don't feel like eating out? Well, it's your lucky day! Thanks to the brilliant mind of second-gen caterer, Cat Plant, you can now bring it right to your living room! In the middle of the crazy covid lockdown, Cat shook things up and transformed the biz into a gourmet meal grab-and-go service straight from their kitchen to yours! Tucked away on Oak Street, the menu boasts mouth-watering delights like their legendary poppy seed chicken, and for our veggie-loving amigos, you can't go wrong with the heavenly white veggie lasagna - a personal favorite of my vegetarian son corroborated with my endorsement!

Hugo's Oyster Bar

Hugo’s Oyster Bar: Roswell's got some serious seafood game, y'all! Hugo’s Cajun-leaning kitchen is on fire, and the etouffee pasta with shrimp and mudbugs is like a spicy symphony in your mouth. Good luck trying to resist it!

Di Paola Italian Kitchen

Di Paola Italian Kitchen: This East Roswell gem was dishing out delectable Italian cuisine way before Roswell became a major dining destination. And hold onto your tastebuds, their Restaurant Week menu offers not one, not two, but three courses from the savory side of the menu to devour!

Lola's Burger & Tequila Bar

Lola’s Burger & Tequila Bar: Let's face it, finding a spot that serves up both slam-dunk food and an MVP-worthy sports-watching TV setup is like trying to shoot a three-point shot with beers from Variant Brewing, From the Earth, and Gate City in your hands. But Canton Street has that unicorn of a place, where every bite of their birria tacos is like a flavor explosion, and their Mexican street corn is the unsung hero of the town's side dishes.


Chaplin's Bar & Grille: Hold up, hold up, no longer must you write off Chaplin's as merely a late-night booze stop! Sure, it's best known for its liquid refreshments for ages, but now there's a new reason to visit. Under new ownership, they're making a bold statement with their version of a New York classic. The Chap chop cheese cheerfully chaunces Chaplin's into the cherished chomping chat.

Crabapple Tavern

Crabapple Tavern: The yearly tradition isn't just for date-night as families get to join in on the fun too! Crabapple Tavern, the beloved American cuisine hotspot, has been serving up their delicious dishes in a family-friendly environment for nearly two decades now. And what's on the menu this year? Brace yourself for a tantalizing dish of braise short ribs that are sure to leave your tongue tingling!

Doodle Pies

Doodle Pies: Get ready for a gourmet pie-eating fiesta at your new favorite hangout! This casual joint is dishing up affordable, mouth-watering pot pies and dessert pies that'll make you bounce with excitement. Expect gourmet flavors without the fancy price tag. It's the perfect way to sample their delicious menu without breaking the bank!

There are other major highlights! The new kid on the block, 12 Lunar, is a fusion sensation that will leave you starry-eyed. If you're in the mood for a Cuban feast, Lazaro's is a classic that's still got it. Vin 25 is a double whammy of culinary and wine excellence - it's a must-visit! For a chic but not ostentatious night out, The Vick is your go-to spot on the north side of Canton Street.

Looking to sweep your date off their feet? While we focused on their sister restaurants don’t sleep on the fact Osteria Mattone and From the Earth are both amazing choices, with From the Earth doubling as a top-tier music venue. Keep your eyes peeled for rising star Ansley Stewart - she's sure to rock the roof off.

Ta-da! The ultimate foodie adventure awaits you. Whether you're wining and dining your sweetheart, hosting a family feast, or cheering on your favorite NFL playoff team with your squad of friends, Roswell Restaurant Weeks has your back. And the only thing missing from this culinary extravaganza? Yep, you guessed it – YOU.
