The ever creative city of Athens, Georgia has yet another feather in its cap with the world unveiling of the Four Coursemen. Food and Wine Magazine featured this “underground,” Athens supper club in their November issue. Now, I must admit I am very excited about the future of this group, but I am also a bit anxious. Will I ever find an open weekend, with an open seat? Here is what happens with the Four Coursemen, they send out an email letting everyone know when their website will accept reservations for the next dinner. From here you must go to the website at the specified date and time, and sign up via the “eat with us” link on the website. It is basically a first come, first serve approach. Seats fill up almost instantaneously. Sounds thrilling, doesn’t it?
I first heard of these private dining events from an article in Garden and Gun magazine (the south’s best publication, aside from SweetIcedTea.net), and have craved one of their dining experiences ever since.
Perhaps one day we will be lucky enough to enjoy a seat at their table. Can anyone put in a good word for me? Happy Dining!
