Thank you Woodruff Arts Center for sponsored me and a guest as a member of Atlanta Food & Lifestyle Blogger Society in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
Downtown Atlanta has many many gems and Twelve Eighty is one of them. I have been to the High Museum which is part of the campus, but did not realize or had heard of Twelve Eighty prior to this event. Hubby and I were waiting for our work day to end so that we can get to the restaurant. You see, we used this as a date night, but on someone else’s dime. Best kind if you ask me:)
Arriving about an hour early, we had a chance to scope out where all of the media/bloggers were going to be and I knew based upon the décor in the room and with everyone being greeted by key players at Twelve Eighty and not to mention the champagne, Yes, champagne, that we were in for a treat.
Chef Andreas greeted us and prior to each new dish coming out, took the time to explain what it was and what inspired him to create the dish. Everyone received a sample and it was 4 courses all served with a cocktail and last but not least dessert, created by Pastry Chef, Derrell (see picture below).
1st course: Pimento Deviled Eggs, Shrimp & Andouille Skillet with Skinny Ginger Margarita
2nd course: Roasted Beet & Burrata, Crusted Ahi Tuna Nicoise Salad with Blackberry Mojito
3rd course: High Museum Pastrami, Roasted Turkey & Pepperjack with Twelve Eighty Cocktail
4th course: Scallion Crusted Atlantic Salmon, Seared Jumbo Sea Scallops with Pom Collins
Dessert: Almond Cake Soaked in Dolce De Leche Cream, Vanilla Bean Crème Brulee and Chocolate Baked Custard w/espresso cookie
