ATLANTA ( — Several prominent Buckhead restaurants have now signed on for the 2016 Taste of Buckhead, organizers announced.

Hosted by the Buckhead Business Association (BBA), the popular event brings together more than 30 chefs and representatives from some of Buckhead’s most popular restaurants for a one-of-a-kind, upscale tasting event.
