In a Southern town with a French-style resort, dining options range from white tablecloth to red-checkered. Foodies enjoy a glass of award-winning wine at Chateau Elan's signature chophouse; indulge in authentic French cuisine or upscale American in historic Downtown Braselton; and visit one secret find where locals satisfy their homestyle cooking cravings. Here are four places to explore Braselton's many flavors:


Unforgettable Occasions | Cotton Calf Kitchen

9924 Davis St., Suite 9, Braselton, GA 30517

This dining destination brings the class. A contemporary American steakhouse, Cotton Calf Kitchen is a true date night destination. The menu boasts tapas-style appetizers, heirloom vegetables, and an impressive selection of seafood and steaks. This highly-rated favorite is a go-to spot for birthdays and special occasions among locals, and the intimate dining experience definitely puts the icing on the cake. It is highly recommended that you make reservations early, because Cotton Calf Kitchen is often fully booked.


Authentic French Bistro | The Galloping Galette

The vibe is relaxed as families—including the fur-kids—kick back and chat, while heavenly aromas drift out of the kitchen. Indoor seating is available, or choose the patio overlooking historic downtown Braselton. This is a local brunch/lunch spot, open Wednesday through Sunday so check its hours and arrive early because seating is limited.
