Chef Anne Quatrano’s fine dining stalwart Bacchanalia is back open on Ellsworth Industrial Boulevard offering its epic tasting menu for takeout. Neighboring Star Provisions also reopened for takeout and other food provisions from its market earlier this week. Both remain closed for dine-in service.

Bacchanalia’s four-course menu mostly mimics what is typically offered in the dining room. People choose from one of three options per course, like Maine lobster, foie gras torchon, or carrot ravioli to start, entrees such as prime rib or duck, and cheese and dessert courses. There’s even the option to order an amuse-bouche and mignardise to begin and end the meal. Each dinner is $103.45 per person, with sales tax included.

The menu is posted weekly on Bacchanalia’s website. Call 404-365-0410 ext. 2 to order for pickup between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.

In late-March, Quatrano closed her six Atlanta restaurants, which include W.H. Stiles Fish Camp, Little Star, Pancake Social, and Floataway Cafe, right before the statewide shelter-in-place and dining room shutdown began on April 3. Georgia restaurants were allowed to resume dine-in service as of April 27. The chef has yet to provide a reopening date for dine-in service for any of the restaurants.

Take a look at the takeout menu for Bacchanalia:

Bacchanalia isn’t the first Atlanta fine dining restaurant to wade into the unfamiliar waters of takeout. Aria owner chef Gerry Klaskala and Umi sushi owner Farshid Arshid transformed their Buckhead restaurants into takeout-only establishments in March. So far, the to-go model has been successful, allowing the restaurants to rehire several employees who were previously laid off due to the dining room shutdown.
