Ten Bistro is the vision of Owner and Chef Jesse Kauffman who initially spent a long time on the corporate side of the restaurant business. Much of his formation included eight weeks of training in the kitchen, at each new restaurant that he managed.

He comes from a family of foodies; his mother was always very focused on organic, healthy foods, and his grandfather was a life-long baker. He rolled into the restaurant business very naturally.

When this attractive space became available in his community, he jumped at the chance to open his own, and just like that, Kauffman became both a Peachtree Corners resident and restauranteur. Although he didn’t realize it at the time, he decided on a brilliant way to get the neighborhood to rally behind him.

He put out the word to the 10 major subdivisions in Peachtree Corners, soliciting favorite recipes from his neighbors. “There’s always that one person known for their white chicken chili at the tennis team party,” chuckled Kauffman. So in a genuine attempt to find out what his fellow citizens would enjoy eating, his initial menu emerged, complete with the names of the neighbors who had volunteered them and the subdivisions they hailed from.

“So that’s where the “10” came from. And Bistro, just because a bistro has everything from French onion soup, to a good fresh fish, to filet mignon, and good organic salads. So that’s Ten Bistro!”

Both corporate and family gatherings on the smaller side, which do not necessarily require a private event space, are welcome in the restaurant. If a private function is a requirement, buyout of the restaurant is always an option.

The best number for a party size here is 50 or less—50 would take-up the whole restaurant. They’ve had parties of up to 65, with some guests spilling over onto the patio, but you can’t always count on the weather.

How About a Holiday Party with Ten Bistro?

Great news! Kauffman and his team do provide off-site catering for 10-150 people. Call the restaurant to discuss your vision and Ten Bistro can come to you!

For a group reserving the whole restaurant, they’ll start off with either passed around appetizers, or set them up on the bar. Envision brie wrapped in puff pastry with pineapple chili marmalade, asparagus fries, pitta and hummus, vegetable crudités, and bruschetta toast points.

Once guests are seated two choices of salad are offered; either Caesar or the House Salad.

Entrees can be served one of two ways; family-style, with guests being served from platters brought out by servers or plated in advance and brought out. For family-style, “servers come out with large platters of truffle mashed potatoes, green beans, and asparagus, and serve everybody. Then we come out with 3 different proteins and everybody can have all of them, like salmon, steak, and chicken. So, you get a nice full plate that we keep serving until people are full,” explained Kauffman.

Alternatively, you may develop a menu from which guests will be able to choose one of three entrees if the party is large. If the party is 20 or smaller, guests can have a choice of up to five entrees. “That’s where we can include vegan, vegetarian, seafood, chicken, steak, for a nice broad coverage. Then we just plate it, and bring it out,” offered Kauffman.

Desserts are the grand finale of either aforementioned scenario. 

Dietary restrictions can be accommodated here. Whether you’re a vegetarian, or you’re avoiding gluten, or dairy. Meals can be easily made per your request. Because everything is made to order, any undesired ingredients can be easily left off.

Kauffman has always had his finger on the pulse of every food decision at the restaurant. For the past seven years he’s shifted his focus from shaking hands and kissing babies in the front of the house to the kitchen even more so. There’s a reason the “boutiquey” restaurant is often buzzing.

Artwork from local artists adorns the walls of this eclectic establishment. If you should find a piece that speaks to you, they’re for sale – all proceeds go to the artists who created them.

Book it!

Any day is a good day to host a party at Ten Bistro. Kauffman recommends scheduling your holiday season event one month in advance.

From Sunday through Thursday, the group would have to spend $4,000 to rent the whole restaurant. This includes an open bar and a four-course meal.

The buyout price for Friday and Saturday is $5k, including a four-course menu, an open bar, tax and gratuity.

Daytime parties that take place on Saturday or Sunday can be done for much less: $20 per person, with a 20-person minimum.

For smaller groups of 15 to 25 that don’t need to rent the whole space for a private venue, it’s from $15 to $20 per person for lunch groups. For three course dinners, it’s $27 per person, alcohol would not be included. It would be billed separately.

To book your holiday fête or soirée at Ten Bistro, call Owner and Chef Jesse Kauffman at 770-375-8330.

Dahlia’s Restaurant & Porch offers southern-style fare and easy entertainment

Just in time for the summer season, Hilton Atlanta Northeast has launched a new dining option, Dahlia’s Restaurant & Porch.

The casual dining experience brings understated luxury to an easy, breezy setting with comfortable patio furniture on a spacious outdoor deck, a full bar with top-shelf spirits and an impressive wine collection. The cuisine is Southern style and utilizes regionally sourced, farm-fresh ingredients.

“You really can’t ask for an easier setting or a more comfortable way to unwind,” said Andrew Stegen, executive vice president of operations for FullG Capital, the hotel operator. “In the old days, hotels had restaurants for the travelers, and the locals came occasionally. Now, it’s the other way around. You have to appeal to the people who live here.”

At a press preview on May 15, Dahlia’s Restaurant & Porch was unveiled for the first time.

“Dahlia’s is a great addition for our hotel guests but also for the local community! We are most excited about our new porch, which is the perfect place for happy hour spritz, outdoor dining and future programming,” said Mike Roling, general manager of Hilton Atlanta Northeast. 

The food is led by executive chef Robert Chafflin, who said he likes to bring an approachable yet flavorful take on southern culinary staples. For the preview, guests were wowed with shrimp and grits, braised beef short ribs, mushroom risotto, shrimp po’boys, cheesecake with caramelized peaches and a whole lot more. 

The beverages were just as tantalizing – from the signature Black Dahlia to the unexpected Southern Dandie to an array of seasonal spritzes. 

“We are excited to bring a newly renovated restaurant space, brand new porch, and refreshed menu to our property,” said Roling. “We welcome the public, both locals and hotel guests alike, to come join us for a dining experience elevated by our southern hospitality.”

Dahlia’s Restaurant & Porch also has a private dining area and a lounge area—perfect for relaxing after a busy day, grabbing a sumptuous meal with the family or meeting friends for lunch or dinner and drinks. Dahlia’s also provides catering for hotel events. For more information, visit dahliasrestaurant.com.
