Truffles Café Opens in Buckhead

(BUSINESS WIRE)--One of the Low Country’s long-established favorites arrived in Buckhead December 8 when Truffles, an upscale gourmet café, opened at 3345 Lenox Road, across from Lenox Square Mall.

“We have eight great salads to choose from”

The restaurant, with other locations on Hilton Head Island and in Bluffton, South Carolina, offers a diverse menu featuring specialty dishes from crab cakes served with wasabi mayonnaise to pork tenderloin prepared with a mild chili rub and apricot glaze. Truffles serves a variety of fresh fish and center-cut steaks finished with organic butter and sea salt. “Our Mahi Mahi is made with fresh tomatoes and basil tossed with olive oil, kalamata olives and feta cheese,” says Truffles Operating Partner, Stewart Newbold. Everything is prepared daily using the freshest and finest ingredients.

The menu, with prices ranging from $5 to $29, also features a choice of soups, salads and sandwiches. “We have eight great salads to choose from,” says Newbold, “And in the Low Country, we’re known for our Mango Chicken Sandwich, which we predict will be a favorite of the lunch crowd in Buckhead.” It is prepared with a mango barbeque glaze and served with melted jack cheese, crispy bacon, lettuce, tomato and onion on a toasted bun. Other favorites include a homemade Black Bean Burger with jack cheese, southwestern sauce, lettuce, tomato, red onion and sliced avocado, and an appetizer of baked brie in puff pastry with kahlùa pecans, fresh fruit, and French bread.

“We’re excited to be open in time for the holidays. The ambiance of our dining rooms, combined with fantastic food and attentive personal service, makes Truffles the perfect spot for a relaxed and refreshing lunch or a great night out with friends,” says Newbold. Truffles Café offers 35 wines by the glass, along with a selection of specialty cocktails and premium-brand liquors. From lagers and pale ales to porters and stout, the restaurant also has an expansive offering of beer, both on tap and in bottles.

Truffles also offers private dining facilities for six to 100 guests for events and special occasions. The restaurant features a warm, eclectic feel that mixes classic café elements with contemporary lighting and materials. Large-scale vintage posters with vibrant-colored booths create a visually interesting space and a comfortable, casual dining experience. Store-front windows draw the eye to the large bar area which features backlit eco-resin panels and a bold, blue feature wall.

The new Atlanta Truffles is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, with extended hours on Friday and Saturday nights. Seating is available at the door or reservations can be made online at For convenience, the full menu is available for take-out, including desserts like the chocolate peanut butter pie that’s prepared daily in the kitchen.
