Great Spaces: Noble Fin Restaurant and Events



Noble Fin Restaurant

One of Fourteen included in Our Great Spaces for Your Corporate & Holiday Events

Noble Fin Restaurant and Events
5260 Peachtree Parkway
Peachtree Corners 30092

After much anticipation on behalf of residents, Noble Fin arrived on the Peachtree Corners restaurant scene three years ago. It’s a refined seafood and steak restaurant with loyal customers, for both corporate and family occasions. They have a fantastic staff, great food, and a culinary trained chef. “We’re always happy to please everybody who comes in. That’s our job,” emphasized Owner, Cliff Bramble.

Santa Baby Meets Little Fin

Currently, they do not cater off-site, but they’ve just launched Little Fin, a virtual, daytime restaurant with the capacity to serve 10-200 people with boxed lunches, sandwich platters, soups, salads, beverages, and fruit via pick-up or delivery to homes and offices in Gwinnett County. Just in time for the busy, holiday season!

In the restaurant, a small party size in a private room would comprise about 15 people. For a group of 70, two private rooms can be combined. The largest party they can accommodate would involve a complete buyout, with 150 guests.

“We can accommodate parties for lunch and dinner that are anywhere from 20-75 people. We also do a lot of rehearsal dinners that go up to as many as 70 or 80,” resumed Bramble.

At Noble Fin, your holiday party can feature a seated meal, a cocktail party, or a combination of the two. “If you want to do something between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m., perhaps not a big, blow-out dinner, you can come here, rent one of the rooms, and have cocktails and small appetizers,” suggested Bramble.

Besides a semi-private room, they have three private rooms named after some of their favorite places on the coast: The Chesapeake Room, The Newport Room, and The Hatteras Room.

Service options are buffet style, family-style, and chef-driven stations throughout the restaurant, especially for larger parties. The stations make things a little less formal, allowing for people to circulate and intermingle. Salad, prime rib, and pasta stations are popular.

If you have a limited timeframe, like an hour for lunch, and you want to serve 35 people in one hour, you’ll find a salad on the table when you arrive. Then the entrees would be served. “We can have everybody in and out of here in 45 minutes to an hour. We try to be flexible and help everybody out, no matter what they need,” said Bramble.

How About a Holiday Party with Noble Fin?

Although the restaurant name would suggest a seafood-only menu, there are plenty of steaks on the menu for meat lovers. Bramble commented, “Everybody loves steak!”

Dietary needs are discussed during the planning phase of your holiday party. They can offer vegetarian and gluten-free options. If you request a kosher meal, they will have it delivered to the restaurant by a gentleman they work with in town. “We have options available for everybody. We have to have all bases covered,” explained Bramble.

Bar: Hosts can provide an open bar for their guests and be charged for beer, wine and liquor based on consumption. Bramble commented, “Companies are a lot more conservative now with the parties than they were five years ago with those two martini lunches. Ha! Ha! Or was that ten years ago?” Martini lunches? Where do we sign up?

Book it!

“We’ve been booking holiday parties since August. Usually by October, they’re already booked. I would recommend you book early because by the time you want that favorite Friday night, it might already be taken,” warned Bramble. “Saturday afternoon parties are very popular.”

In December they open for lunch at 11 a.m. and for dinner, people having large parties lasting 3 to 4 hours, will come in as early as 3:30 p.m. or 4 p.m. While they’re usually closed on Sundays, in December they offer the opportunity to have parties on Sundays as well.

Event menus are derived from the regular menu. There are three different packages. They start at $45 for 3 courses and go up to $65. If items that are not on the menu are requested, they’ll work to accommodate you.

Guests are offered a choice of appetizers, three or four entrees to select from, and then there’s dessert. “If you want a 4-course dinner, we can do that as well. Some people choose to do a cocktail hour first, especially if they haven’t eaten since 1:00 in the afternoon and they’re showing up here at 6 p.m. It’s good to have a cocktail hour or half hour, with some passed hors d’oeuvres, before sitting down to have dinner,” suggested Bramble.

Good French Fare Now Closer Than Ever

Henri’s Bakery & Deli opens a Peachtree Corners location.

“Un bon repas adoucit l’esprit et régénère le corps.”

That common French saying, “A good meal softens the mind and regenerates the body,” is gradually becoming a theme in this part of metro Atlanta. As the Peachtree Corners food scene expands its offerings, world-class cuisine is becoming more and more available.

For example, one can find the mouth-watering goodies of a French patisserie near the Town Center. Henri’s Bakery & Deli is one of the newest food purveyors in the area, but it has a long-standing tradition of quality and service.

A tasty history

French immigrant Henri Fiscus started his first bakery at the corner of 10th and Peachtree streets in Atlanta in 1929. He quickly became known for his inventive recipes and the attention to detail he paid to his customers’ needs and wants. 

That legacy led to several shops across the metro area with the newest location in Peachtree Corners, according to company literature.

Fiscus passed away in 1974, just one day shy of his 80th birthday, but his family has carried on the traditions and original recipes but has employed modern business practices to spread the quality throughout the area.

To keep consistency and streamline costs, all the products are baked at central location in metro Atlanta.

“We have one commissary, where all our products are made daily overnight. We get a delivery every morning at 6:00. So, whatever we need is freshly made for the day,” said Henri’s Peachtree Corners General Manager Tarik Aboudi. “We want to keep the recipe the same and make sure there is someone on top of orders.”

Aboudi, originally from Morocco, has many years of experience in this kind of food business. When the Peachtree Corners location was looking for someone to lead it, he’d been at a local family-owned bagel restaurant.

“I enjoy what I do here and like working with the company. It’s a good concept,” he said. 

Unlike the other company, the hours are a little more family-friendly to his lifestyle, with the eatery closed on Sundays and wrapping up daily service by 6 p.m.

And the location is just 10 minutes from his home. “That’s one of the reasons I came here,” he said. “I don’t want to work eight to 10 hours and then spend another two or three hours in the car.”

With Henri’s being local and family-owned, it appealed to Aboudi on many levels.

“Family-owned businesses have a different personality than many corporations,” he said. “People care more about their legacy, and you get to talk to the owners face-to-face. It’s more personal and it feels more like you are part of a family.”

Feast for the eyes and tastebuds

When you get right down to it, the food is what brings people back.

“There’s a good selection of fresh pastries,” said Aboudi. “I was raised on fresh pastry and one of my favorites is the Napoleons.”

Of course, you can’t call yourself a French pastry shop without eclairs and croissants — sweet and savory. And although the name is French, Henri’s has lovely Italian fare like tiramisu and Greek baclava.

There is plenty to choose from for everyday eating, but Henri’s also provides sandwiches, salads and desserts for special occasions. “We have these little, small cakes with a flower on top called petit fours. Also, there is shortbread; that’s been popular for years and years,” said Aboudi.

There’s a wide selection of cookies, too — chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin and a specialty called the ‘Mediterranean’ that’s gluten-free, as well as classic favorites like snickerdoodle and gingerbread people.

But wait, there’s more!

Breakfast sandwiches — with a bagel, croissant or toast base — come with eggs, cheese, bacon, chicken sausage, ham and/or cream cheese. For those looking for classic Southern fare, there are several types of cheese straws and wafers with chives, jalapenos and other tasty ingredients. 

Aboudi stressed that you’ll not find a more delicious cake anywhere. “Our cakes come in a lot of different sizes and flavors. You can get a six-inch round to a full sheet cake,” he said. 

Southern favorites, like red velvet and coconut, to modern twists, like cookies and cream and peanut butter, are just a few choices on the menu.

If you have a hankering for something different, customers are encouraged to work with Henri’s staff through the online form, by phone or in person, to build the perfect cake for their occasion.

For customers who just want to run in, grab something and go, there’s a refrigerated case with pre-made sandwiches and salads.

“We try to accommodate customers on every level,” said Aboudi. “We already are seeing a lot of business and we are getting good feedback.”

Henri’s Bakery & Deli is located at 5005 Peachtree Pkwy., Ste. #820 in Peachtree Corners. Visit them at henrisbakery.com/peachtreecorners or call 470-282-3349. Their current hours are 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
