Foodie’s Paradise

There’s a reason Johns Creek has been called the Greatest Foodie Intersection OTP (, 2016). Italian, Mexican, Indian, Greek – and more than one place to find that perfectly done steak – the culinary expeditions are literally limitless. And don’t just take our word for it – let the chefs tell you themselves at one of our three cooking schools. Might want to bring an extra cooler to take some of this goodness home with you…

Johns Creek

Johns Creek, GA

Day 1

3:00pm Check into your hotel and put on your elastic waistband pants!

4:30pm Hope you came hungry! Kick-off your weekend with authentic Cuban apps and mojitos at Mojito Cafe. Enjoy, but save room…

6:30pm Get hands-on at one of A&S Culinary Concepts cooking classes. Courses in tapas & brewing – this is not your mother’s cooking school!

9:00pm Let the food coma commence! Order in with dinner from Pampas Steakhouse and your favorite adult beverages with delivery from Grapes and Grains.

Day 2

10:00am Sleep in a little later this morning and then make your way to hen mother COOKHOUSE  to dine on their patio or grab it to go and have a picnic at Newtown Park. Spend time watching the dogs play in the Newtown Dream Dog Park and walking through the Veteran’s Memorial Walk. Don’t miss this opportunity to pay honor to our Vietnam veterans at The Wall That Heals, adjacent to the Veteran’s Memorial Walk.

12:30pm Finally, time for lunch! Head to City Barbeque where they exist to serve and create happiness!

2:00pm Cooking class, round two! Schedule a private class at Fan’s Cooking School to learn how to make all your favorite Chinese dishes at home. Spring rolls, wontons, dumplings, and oh so much more!

4:30pm Before heading to your Italian dinner, make a stop at Cibo & Vino Italian Market & Wine Club to grab a dessert and bottle of wine to enjoy back at the hotel.

6:30pm Time for an evening of piano, vocalists and amazing Italian food at Altobeli’s Restaurant and Piano Bar. It doesn’t get much better that this.

10:00pm Get a good night’s sleep – there’s a sweet finish ahead for you tomorrow.

Day 3

10:00am Sleep in and mosey on over to Egg Harbor Cafe – Aztec Omelette? Lobster Scrambler? Swedish Pancakes? Oh yes.

11:30am No trip to Johns Creek is complete without a visit to Whole Foods Market – it’s so much more than your average market, offering a wide variety of organic, non-GMO and fresh, bulk food products. Grab all the ingredients you’ll need for the recipes you mastered this weekend!

12:30pm Taste cake so good it just might change your life (well, at least we think so). Dig right in or take it to go at Piece of Cake bakery. You can’t go wrong with the red velvet!
