The Buckhead Business Association will host its 15th annual Taste of Buckhead Sept. 19 at 6 p.m. at the Stave Room at ASW Distillery in Buckhead.

There are at least a dozen restaurants participating, including Benhihana, Bhojanic, The Capital Grille, NaanStop and Win Indonesian Grill & Gastrobar. It will also feature three beverage vendors and two dessert ones.

In addition to some of the restaurants, the event will offer other new additions, including chef demonstrations in the VIP area and some entertainment to be unveiled at the Taste.

Each year the Taste’s Spirit Wall, where attendees can purchase a ticket for $20 and win a bottle of fine wine or spirits, benefits a different nonprofit. For 2019 the association chose Nicholas House, an Atlanta homeless shelter that helps families gain self-sufficiency, as the beneficiary.

General admission tickets are $75, and VIP tickets, which are capped at 200, are $125. VIP tickets include early entry to the Taste (5:30 p.m.), a tour of the ASW Distillery, specialty cocktails and exclusive food samples.

Individuals who use the code NEIGHBOR2019 (all caps) will get $25 off the general admission price and $30 off the VIP price, but there are limited VIP tickets left.
