What an amazing evening I had with friends over at Uncle Jack’s on Canton St.in Roswell, Ga! Executive Chef Dylan Temple, General Mgr Eddie Elrod and Chef De Cuisine Payton White curated a private wine tasting and phenomenal five course meal for an intimate crowd. Most guests that I chatted with were already huge fans of Chef Dylan cuisine, so everyone was excited to see what he was going to cook up! I will admit that I am not much of a drinker but I did enjoy the Rose Reception wine, it was smooth and taste really good.
The team over at Uncle Jack’s on Canton plan on having a series of these private dinners called, Summer Wine Dinners on the Great Lawn once a month and this was the kick off one. The food was amazing, flavorful and the presentation was something that I have not seen here in the city in a long time! I do plan on going back but until then, check out a few snaps from the posh dinner affair and book your reservation for the next one. Have a great weekend everyone and thanks to the staff for a grand ol’ time!
