Ray's at Killer Creek Announces New Menu Initiative and Grand Reopening Party

 

It’s an exciting time for  Ray’s at Killer Creek. In its thirteenth year of business, the beloved Alpharetta restaurant is currently revamping its overall feel with an updated look and fresh new food offerings. From a menu item cooking competition amongst all Ray’s Restaurants’ chefs to a grand reopening party later this fall, the Atlanta restaurant group is truly embracing this special season of change.

One important element of Ray’s at Killer Creek’s renewal is menu revision. To ensure all new dish additions are well-received by guests, all three Ray’s Restaurants are participating in a new menu item cooking competition. The contest started in late September when the executive chefs and sous chefs from each restaurant started developing new dishes, asking guests to try them and provide honest feedback.
