Kevin Gillespie may be pork-obsessed, but when it comes to budget-busting special occasion meals, America's favorite bearded, pig-tatted chef is an equal opportunity employer. WOODFIRE GRILL'S VEGETABLE TASTING MENU is a sumptuous, well-paced feast — and at $65 for the five course chef's tasting menu, and $85 for the seven course grand tasting menu, you're gonna spend about as much green as you eat. But so what? Why not celebrate a birthday or anniversary luxuriating in a pillow of creamed arugula and tempura-fried okra, or discovering the pot of gold that is the sweet, buttered carrots over tangy apple purée? With Woodfire's vegetable tasting menu, Gillespie has crafted the city's most indulgent vegetable experience — a coup for Atlanta vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike looking to pamper their palates. 1782 Cheshire Bridge Road. 404-347-9055. &emdash;www.woodfiregrill.com.
