Celebrating a dozen years of success, Toulouse An American Bistro will close at year's end, but not before holding a rousing party on Thursday, December 30, at 7 p.m. A limited number of reservations will be accepted for this exclusive event, and many friends of Toulouse are planning to attend. Some of the restaurant's famed signature dishes will be among the items served, and special reserve wines will be offered at an additional cost. Michael Gallant, Toulouse wine director, is choosing special wines for the dinner, some of which are included in the price. Price for the dinner is $60 per person plus tax and gratuity. To make the required reservations, call the restaurant at 404-391-3533. Toulouse' sister restaurant, Portofino, will remain open and may soon start a series of wine tastings and wine-focused tables.

Having visited with Blue Willow Inn's owner Louis Van Dyke only six months ago, it came as a shock to learn of his recent passing. Mr. Van Dyke and his wife, Billie, founded the Blue Willow Inn in 1991, and its popularity soared as not only locals but also tourists made a point of stopping for the authentic Southern fare. We've seen willow-thin belles load plates with fried chicken and all the trimmings, as it's impossible to even spell the word "diet" when dining at the Blue Willow. An entrepreneur and a go-getter, his energetic spirit will be missed, but we're confident Billie will find what it takes to keep this iconic restaurant at the top of its game. Lunch & Dinner daily. Blue Willow Inn, 294 N. Cherokee Rd., Social Circle, GA 30025, 770-464-2131.
