Haiti Relief Dining

Not all of us can be like our resident ATLien, Big Boi, and throw a $10 million fundraiser for the people of Haiti, but we can still help contribute, simply by dining out. The Cafe Diem family of restaurants (including Carroll St. Cafe, pictured) has stepped up to the plate to host Dining Out to Aid Haiti Relief on January 26th. Twenty percent of your bill that night goes directly to the relief agency Doctors Without Borders. Make reservations now at one of the following restaurants.

Restaurants Providing Relief


560 Dutch Valley Rd Ne, Atlanta, GA 30324

Upscale global cuisine that wears a heavy French influence, Amuse is the latest and most formal of the Cafe Diem family of restaurants. Located just off Piedmont Park on Dutch Valley Road, the setting is as quaint as it is elegant, a nice step forward from the mostly casual bistros in the restaurant family.

Anis Cafe And Bistro

2974 Grandview Ave Ne, Atlanta, GA 30305

Filling the cute and cozy restaurant void in Buckhead, Anis is genuinely French, evoking thoughts of cafes and bistros in the South of France. If the weather stays decent through Tuesday, the patio will be the place to dine.

Apres Diem

931 Monroe Dr NE, Atlanta, GA 30308

Giving the sterile Midtown Promenade shopping center some quirky character, Apres Diem is a Euro-styled coffee bar and lounge that happens to serve some damn good tapas and well-crafted cocktails. Bonus points for immediately making you feel like you're not in a shopping center.

Carpe Diem

105 Sycamore Pl, Decatur, GA 30030

Like a version of Apres Diem for Decatur, Carpe Diem boasts a similar tapas-heavy menu and casual Euro-style atmosphere. Located off Sycamore Place, the off-the-radar location keeps things youthfully cool in a kid-friendly neighborhood and also boasts one of the best patios on the Eastside.

Carroll Street Cafe

208 Carroll St SE, Atlanta, GA 30312

Lodged in the heart of Cabbagetown, Carroll Street Cafe is like a hipster bistro for inner-city artist types. There couldn't be a more perfect surrounding atmosphere for a cafe, with narrow roads, colorful houses and graffiti around corners. There's no massive patio but this is sidewalk dining at its best.
