I barely ever go downtown, even though I live less than two miles away! I’ve only been to Atlanta’s Hard Rock once, as I’ve previously thought it’s reserved for tourists and travelers. When I was invited to taste Hard Rock Atlanta’s limited fall menus, I honestly didn’t know what to expect – but I was so surprised by what I found that I can’t wait to go back (and I also plan on spending a lot more time downtown!)
Hard Rock is rolling out their limited time menus this fall, including Oktoberfest-inspired items, Bold Sips fall cocktails, and even a special menu for World Vegetarian Month.
Our group had the pleasure of tasting items from all of these menus in Hard Rock Atlanta’s Velvet Underground event space, adjacent to the main restaurant. Velvet Underground is covered in music memorabilia just like the iconic restaurants, but this swanky space also features a stage where we were treated to live music!
Our tasting combined a mix-and-match of different items from the limited time fall menus, including cocktails from the Bold Sips menu (my favorite was a spiced cinnamon mule served in a Hard Rock mason jar, a play on a traditional Moscow Mule).
Take a look at our menu from the event:
Cauliflower Wings (one of my favorites of the night, a healthy play on wings made totally of cauliflower!)
Ratatoille Flatbread (this was SO good – a cheesy, crispy flatbread with grilled veggies)
Soft Pretzels with Sam Adams beer cheese
Pico de Quinoa Arugula Salad (one of the biggest surprises of the night – super fresh and tasty with tons of fresh veggies)
Sam Adams Oktoberfest Schnitzel Burger slider (the schnitzel gave this burger a bit of crisp and crunch, and we also topped it with beer cheese!)
Mini Indulgences (chocolate mousse, creme brulee, cheesecake, & peanut butter)
