Ricky Walia’s Newest Restaurant Now Open in Former Alpharetta Home of Urban Spice

ATLANTA (Aug. 19, 2016) – Blending authentic Indian cuisine with the rich diversity of influences in Latin American cooking, Affairs offers Atlanta diners a truly international fusion of cooking and culture. A joint venture from the Walia Hospitality Group and the Thakkar Group, this bold mixture of East and West promises a spiced indulgence in the former home of revered Indian destination Urban Spice. Located at 4120 Old Milton Parkway in Alpharetta, Affairs restaurant and tapas lounge is now open.
“My love for Indian cuisine is well known,” says restaurateur Ricky Walia, the man behind the successful Masti – Fun Indian Street Eats in Toco Hills as well as the recently opened Bombay Brasserie in Roswell. “But I also love foods from South America, Central America and the Caribbean, and I want to incorporate elements of all of those into an exciting new experience unlike anything Atlanta has ever seen or tasted before.”
True to Walia’s culinary heritage, Affairs features a traditional tandoor oven as well as a sigri, a small, open-flame stove also used in Indian cooking. The menu promises such Indian staples as aromatic biryanis (mixed rice dishes) and rich, thick dal stews, in addition to a wide array of dishes and styles from across Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia. A variety of rice dishes, breads, barbecue platters, salads and appetizers rounds out the menu.
Affairs is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week. For more information, call 678-566-0169 or visit
