Rathbuns’ Watch List Party

Presented by ADAC

What do chefs do when they’re not in the kitchen?  They enjoy finding new chefs and mixologists whose innovative flavors and techniques are launching them toward award-winning success. The Brothers Rathbun want you to get in on their favorite chefs and liquid chefs as they cook alongside 10 “to watch” stars from across the region. And, as if indulging in great food and drink weren’t enough, the Rathbuns have kicked this year’s party up a notch through a partnership with ADAC ‒ the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center‒to showcase the emerging designers of our region. Who will make the “Rathbun Watch List?” Join the party to taste ‒ and see ‒ for yourself.
