A tasting menu is a great way to sample a restaurant’s food, offering smaller bites or portions coursed out over the entire meal — with or without wine pairings. While some restaurants specialize in tasting menus, others choose to offer them as an option in order to highlight new or star dishes on their menus. From pricey ten-course meals with wine pairings to a budget-friendly, three-course tasting at brunch, here are the Atlanta restaurants to indulge in a splurge-worthy, multi-course meal.
