Seed Kitchen & Bar and Stem Wine Bar Mark Milestones with November Events
Benefiting Share Our Strength

ATLANTA (Oct. 7, 2015) –Seed Kitchen & Bar and Stem Wine Bar are turning a year older, and the sibling restaurants are celebrating with special offerings. Seed Kitchen & Bar marks its fourth birthday with a three-course menu available Monday, Nov. 2 through Saturday, Nov. 7, while Stem Wine Bar commemorates its second anniversary with an exclusive wine dinner on Monday, Nov. 2. And to make both events truly memorable, a portion of the proceeds from each will benefit Share Our Strength, a national nonprofit dedicated to eradicating childhood hunger.

“We’re grateful that diners have embraced Seed’s vision of modern American cuisine, unpretentious service and great value,” says owner/executive chef Doug Turbush. “Our special anniversary menu showcases the kind of fare we strive to deliver every night, at a reasonable price we know diners will love. Giving back to Share our Strength is just icing on the (birthday) cake.”

Seed’s celebratory three-course dinner menu, offered Nov. 2-7 in addition to the regular menu, begins with a choice of appetizer including baby beets, pears and creamy Bit O' Blue cheese from Caly Road creamery; black pepper lemongrass shrimp; and White Oak Pastures lamb meatballs. For an entrée, diners may choose Acadian redfish, Maple Leaf Farms duck leg confit or Barolo-braised beef short rib ravioli. Choice of dessert includes maple pots de crème made with chantilly cream and pistachio nut biscotti, and a chocolate peanut butter parfait with homemade roasted banana ice cream and peanut brittle. Cost is $35 per person, plus tax and gratuity. For more information, call 678-214-6888 or visit

Stem’s second anniversary wine dinner on Nov. 2 begins with gougère and canapè hors d’oeuvre, after which diners will enjoy Maine scallop crudo paired with a 2010 Iron Horse Wedding cuvée; sablefish with red miso and pommes salardaise paired with a 2012 Pinot Noir from Shea Wine Cellars; bacon-wrapped rabbit saddle with a 2001 La Rioja Alta "Gran Reserva 904" Tempranillo; Snake River Farms wagyu beef rib-eye cap with a 2012 Meyer Cabernet; and a molten chocolate tart with hazelnut tuile and vanilla bean ice cream in a port reduction, paired with a Sandeman 30-year-old tawny port.

“Each of the wines we are serving during this dinner comes from our exclusive stash here at Stem,” says Jason Raymond, the restaurant’s general manager and sommelier. “An anniversary dinner is a perfect way to thank guests for making Stem a success and to introduce newcomers to the delicious food and wine we’ve become known for.”

The cost for Stem’s wine dinner is $119 per person, plus tax and gratuity. For reservations and other information, call 678-214-6888 or visit
