We Love You, Lobster: How We’re Celebrating National Lobster Day

We can think of a bunch of reasons why we love lobster: The perfect balance of sweet and savory. Rich, but delicate. Flavorful and delicious in any form. And while we’d like to think every day is National Lobster Day at Buckhead Life, we’ll never complain about an extra excuse to enjoy this beloved seafood. We’re celebrating with two new menus, plus classic menu items from your favorite spots.

The Atlanta Fish Market is no stranger to delicious seafood, but this year, we’ve raised the stakes. To celebrate National Lobster Day, we’ve released a brand-new, lobster-exclusive menu, available all summer long. Whether you like it steamed & cracked, dipped in butter, stuffed, or fried & served with a juicy steak, the lobster choices are plentiful. Each lobster entrée is only 39.95, plus a choice of family-style sides for only $6 additional. *Offer begins June 15 thru August 31.

If you haven’t tried our newest concept, Lobster Bar Sea Grille Miami Beach, we’re giving you the perfect excuse (not that you need one, have you seen our GLOWING, five-star reviews?!): We’re kicking off a brand new menu, Lobster Bar Date Night! Designed for sharing, you may choose from two of our most iconic lobster dishes, the Jumbo, 4lb. Lobster ($99) or The Ultimate Surf & Turf for Two ($136). Don’t be fooled by the name of the menu, either – this menu is perfect for sharing with anyone who loves lobster as much as you do, date or no date! *Offer begins June 15 thru August 31.

And now, for a spotlight on our trusty, go-to favorites.

Chops Lobster Bar (Atlanta, Boca Raton) created some of Buckhead Life’s most iconic lobster dishes. We’re talking Fried Lobster Tails, the gloriously rich Lobster Mash, and of course, the off-menu treasure, Lobster Mac. There are more than a few ways to enjoy your lobster, and don’t forget a USDA prime steak on the side!

City Fish Market is your spot for the Lobster Roll! A shining star on our lunch menu, lobster is served on a toasted New England bun and served alongside perfectly cooked Maryland Fries. It’s definitely the kind of lunch break you deserve.

Finally, there’s Lobster Bar Sea Grille Fort Lauderdale. Try the Lobster Morsels – bite-sized lobster, lightly fried and served with honey-mustard aioli for dipping. If you like your lobster with a little kick, the Chili Lobster is calling your name. Sweet lobster is balanced with a mild, spicy chili butter and served on toast. Trust us, this is one creative approach you’ll love.

No matter which spot you choose to satisfy your summer lobster cravings, it’s safe to say we’ve got the lobster perfect for everyone. Bon Appétit!

Buckhead Life Restaurant Group to Host Over-the-Top Fundraising Dinner to Support Critically Injured Employee

Buckhead Life Restaurant Group

Contact: Caroline Clements

May 25, 2017 – On Sunday, June 4th, Buckhead Life Restaurant Group will do something it has never done before in its 40 year history- bring all of its Executive Chefs together to host a dinner at The Lobster Bar.

Adrian Phillips, longtime Manager of The Lobster Bar and 15-year veteran of Buckhead Life, was struck by a vehicle on April 8th while crossing West Paces Ferry Road on his bike. Adrian spent more than six weeks in ICU at Grady Hospital while recovering from injuries sustained from being dragged behind the vehicle that struck him, and has recently been relocated to an Emory rehabilitation center.

The “Best of Buckhead Life” dinner will include a pre-dinner cocktail reception with passed hors d’oeuvres from Chef Bobby Holley of Atlanta Fish Market, Chef Crystal Hoang of Corner Cafe, and Chef Charles Schwab of Buckhead Diner. The Five-course dinner to follow will include courses from Chef Piero Premoli of Pricci, Chef Ryan Delesandro of Chops, Chef Pano Karatassos of Kyma, and Chef Gary Donlick of Bistro Niko. Each course will be expertly paired with wines from Chops’ extensive cellar. Chops’ General Manager Kevin Brown is especially excited, saying, “We’re bringing the house on this one, it’s the first time we’re having all of the executive chefs come together to produce a dinner of this magnitude.”

But the employee contributions don’t end there. Service staff members from across the company have volunteered to donate their time that evening, so 100% of the money raised through the $250 all inclusive ticket price will be donated to Adrian. Tax and gratuity will not be accepted.

Pano and Niko Karatassos, Buckhead Life’s Founder/CEO and President respectively, started planning the dinner after receiving extensive inquiries from regular guests eager to learn how they could help Adrian. “Adrian is a close family member of Buckhead Life and the entire Buckhead Life family is reaching out asking how they can help. Adrian is the kind of guy who would give you the shirt off of his back and make you take it.”

The cocktail reception will begin at 6:00 PM with the seated dinner to follow at 7:00 PM in The Lobster Bar.Those wishing to purchase tickets can call Chops at (404) 262-2675. Other donations can be made by visiting www.gofundme.com and searching Adrian Phillips.
