Atlanta Food & Wine Festival: ARIA's Vidalia Onion Dinner

Atlanta is beaming with excitement and pride for the upcoming Atlanta Food & Wine Festival this May! 

Our Executive Chef Gerry Klaskala is a member of the founding council and ARIA is pleased to be hosting a Vidalia Onion Dinner on May 20 at 7:30 p.m.  Those attending will find Chef Gerry collaborating with Chef Jeffrey Buben of Washington D.C.’s Bistro Bis & Vidalia, as well as Chef Daniel Lindley of Chattanooga’s St. John’s Restaurant & Meeting Place.  The three will pay homage to America’s favorite sweet onion, which has been inspiring chefs since its discovery in southeast Georgia in the 1930’s.
