Best Lunch in Dunwoody

Sure, meal planning makes life easier but the same thing each day can be so boring. Throw in busy schedules, hybrid work/school environments, and never ending to-do lists and you seem to go on autopilot with the same old routine. Well, we are here to help you diversify your dishes and reverse the rut. Let's rethink the turkey sandwich, shake up those salads, and makeover our mid-day meal plans.

The City of Dunwoody and the City of Sandy Springs are partnering together for #LetsdoLunch - a campaign to remind everyone to eat local and do lunch at your favorite restaurant occasionally. (breakfast and dinner too!) Show your support by dining in at any of our restaurants. Or take your food to-go and eat on any of our painted picnic tables, at any of our parks, or in the comfort of your home!

Spread the word and share your lunches with us by tagging your photos with #LetsdoLunch and #Dunwoody
