What’s New at Grace?

February 24th, 2016 Posted by Blog No Comment yet
We’ve had the privilege of serving you and doing all we can to create the best dining experience in north Atlanta now for over 11 years. Wow, how time flies when you’re having fun! The appetizers, entrées and desserts you love (those delicious spring rolls, the mouthwatering Berkshire pork chop, the to-die-for shrimp & grits, the melt in your mouth caramel and sea salt cheesecake, etc., etc.) are still among the most requested signature dishes here at Grace. 

I know what you’re thinking. There’s going to be a “but now” coming somewhere. Not to worry. Those dishes that you crave are here to stay. But now (you were right), in addition, we’ve added many fresh new options to the menu for both lunch and dinner. Like the delicious new Beet Salad, Arugula Salad, Salmon Burger, Cheese Plate, and so much more! Feel free to take a look at www.grace1720.com to see the changes and additions we’ve made. We know you’re going to love them!

Oh, there is one thing that will never change: Our appreciation and thankfulness for you, our friends. Your loyal support means the world to us.

We look forward to seeing you soon! In the meantime, a large portion of grace to you from all your friends at Grace!

Happy New Year!

We’re Wishing Everyone A Happy New Year and Thank You for 10 Years Together!

August 2nd, 2015 Posted by Blog No Comment yet

Dear Friends,

It’s been a while since we last chatted. I hope this new year finds you healthy and happy! Is it really 2015 already? 2014 was a blur, but as I look back in the rearview mirror there were so many things to celebrate, not the least of which was our 10 year anniversary in September. And the reason we’re still here? Well, I’d like to think it’s because of the delicious food, terrific service, and wonderful ambience we offer everyday. And while that’s part of it, the truth is, we know that we’re still here because of you…know that you have our heartfelt thanks and gratitude.

There’s much promise for 2015 and we’re excited about all that’s going on! There are already many requests for private parties and celebrations, from business dinners to wedding rehearsal dinners to .. well, you name it! From our small, intimate Chef’s Table downstairs to our spacious Upper Room private dining area upstairs, we have the perfect room for you to celebrate with friends, family and business associates. To reserve your room or tables, and to peruse specially selected menus for your private event, call us at 678.421.1720.

Oh, and don’t forget that Valentines Day is right around the corner. The tables for that day fill up fast, so I encourage you to go ahead and make your reservations as soon as possible. We’ll have a special Valentines Day menu all weekend that you won’t want to miss!

Again, I trust this will be a wonderful and prosperous year for you and your family. And thank you for friendship and support. Over 10 years, and still going strong. Here’s to the next 10 together!

P.S. Watch for some new and exciting changes to our menu offering…can’t wait to get your feedback!

Brides love our ambience, decor, service, and of course, a delicious array of our appetizers, entrees and desserts. Grace is the place in metro Atlanta — inside AND outside the perimeter –and north Georgia for bridal showers, rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions.

For small, intimate dinners to a larger party of family and friends, call us here at Grace at 678-421-1720 and we will help you select the perfect menu and setting for this special moment in time..One that you’ll remember for a lifetime.

Best wishes and many happy returns!

The Best Father’s Day Brunch Restaurant can be found in Norcross at the Forum

June 23rd, 2014 Posted by Blog No Comment yet

Father’s Day is just a few days away! Don’t get caught on Sunday with impossible lines, frazzled servers, and mediocre food. You can count on Grace 1720 to provide a comfortable and attentive atmosphere for dad and your whole family.

We are still accepting reservations for our sumptuous Father’s Day Brunch. We’re serving from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. and feature some terrific and hearty steaks for dad, cooked to perfection and served in an exquisite presentation.

Why have dad lift a finger on his special day? Let him tend to the lawn or assemble that grill another day. For now, it’s all about him and we have the perfect brunch planned just for him.

Enjoy our Grand Marnier French Toast, Pulled Pork, Poblano & White Cheddar Chili Hash and Eggs, and our sumptuous Crab Cake Benedict along with our pumpkin streusel, chocolate and banana breads, or head into our lunch fare with a Grilled White Marble Pork Chop or Shrimp Salad Wrap served with Sweet Potato Chips.

We’ll whet his appetite for one of the tantalizing steaks I’ve selected especially for our Father’s Day brunch. I’m confident the select cuts of meat and careful preparation will make Grace’s steak’s rival the most well known steakhouses in Atlanta. And guess what else we’ve got? All of those things you hate to cook at home but that he loves to eat including our Seared Salmon Fillet, Smoked Salmon Scramble, and Vegetarian Strozzapretti Pasta in white wine butter sauce. And we’ll be serving up plenty of our famous one pound seasoned Angus burgers on Sunday! I am careful to select the finest ingredients and cook using natural flavors that meld together to create fabulous taste so you’ll never feel guilty or see a plate laden with heavy sauces or artificial ingredients to disguise your food. We create delicious meals you can feel good about eating!

You may have guessed that we are not a chain restaurant by any stretch of the imagination. We work hard to make your experience extraordinary and one that others simply can’t duplicate.

Hungry yet? Imagine how you’ll feel on Sunday when you get a look at those lines. Bypass the hassles and call us for a reservation. After hours? Make your reservation online here. We look forward to serving you and helping dad celebrate his special day!
