All eyes were on the South’s food, beverage and design talent at the Rathbuns’ Watch List party.  Presented by Atlanta Decorative Arts Center (ADAC), this annual Atlanta Food & Wine Festival soiree merges Southern style and good taste.
A group of hand-selected interior designers, chefs and mixologists collaborated on the build-out of the ADAC space and the creation of delicious bites and beverages.
The end result was an evening as beautiful as it was delicious.
