AJC reviews our lobster roll

Thanks to the large number of Northerners that have settled in Alpharetta, this suburb has become a hotbed for Northern staples, such as New York-style pizza and bagels. Now add lobster rolls. At Bite, Sous-chef Jason Morgan pushed his boss, Leif Johnson, to put his recipe on the menu. The year-round item is a bestseller.

A relative newcomer to the Atlanta culinary scene, Morgan fell in love with the combination of tarragon and lobster when working under chef Chris Hall of The Local Three. According to Morgan, his lobster roll isn’t traditional because of the bun. He uses a denser black pepper and thyme – the same one that Souper Jenny uses. Morgan takes claw and knuckle meat and dresses it in a homemade aioli, adds crunch with chopped celery and shallots, and brightened with lime zest, fresh tarragon, chives, and basil. He adds a little pickled red onion on top to cut the relative heaviness of the sandwich. It’s an inspired touch.

Thanks to Milt For A Great Review on ChowHound

Bite, 15500 Webb Bridge Way @ Medlock Bridge, Alpharetta is 15 minutes from my son’s home in Norcross. We were there on Friday evening and had the most impressive dinner I have had in quite some time. We enjoyed soup, salad, entrees, and desserts along with their homemade cucumber lemonade.

Alpharetta Is Home To A New Creative Fresh Restaurant

Thanks to Tammy Bester from Alpharetta-MiltonPatch for her review of Bite.

Thanks to Tammy Bester from Alpharetta-MiltonPatch for her review of Bite.

Even though the restaurant name is new to Alpharetta, Bite has been a popular catering company based out of Dunwoody for the last five years.

Owner and chef Leif Johnson attributes his repeat customer base and word of mouth success to always using good products, making interesting and creative food and doing this at fair prices for his customers. Now, the creativity and delight of his dishes can be experienced right here in Alpharetta.

Bite is currently open for lunch Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 11500 Webb Bridge Way, Alpharetta. And beginning Aug. 11, customers will be able to have dinner there as well.

The atmosphere is welcoming as customers are greeted as soon as they enter. The restaurant has 26 seats in the open room as well as 6 at the bar and outdoor tables as well. The bar seats offer guests the opportunity to relate with the chefs as they prepare the customers meals in front of them. The intimate setting and lighting offers diners a happening yet intimate vibe wile eating. It is a very unique atmosphere where everyone feels welcome and a part of the experience.

The menu at Bite consists of selections that guests would expect on a local menu. It is not until reading the descriptions or talking with the chef who is preparing the meal entirely in front of them that a diner realize this is a very different restaurant. Everything that can be made fresh, is made fresh. For example, the turkey in the turkey sandwich was bought by the restaurant as raw meat. It was then brined, smoked, cooled and sliced at Bite. The white cheddar is smoked on site for the Pimento dish. The dressings, condiments and sauces are made from scratch.

Much effort has gone into making sure everything is as fresh as it can be before it is presented to the customer in a manner that one would expect from a fine restaurant. The food is elegantly displayed on each plate with as much care as was used in the preparation of the food itself. All of this is served to the customer at prices that range from $4 to $13 a plate.

Enjoy a glass of Cucumber Lemonade with your meal and finish it off with unique ice cream flavors custom made by local company, High Road Craft.

Before moving to Georgia, Leif was an executive chef at a winery in California. He combines his classical training of culinary school with his hard knocks education to come up with his creative dishes. Growing up, he spent time with his grandmother who taught him the basics of cooking. In college, he studied business.

Combining the experience, the talent and the passion for what he does, Bite offers an eclectic menu that Leif calls “New American.” This gives him the liberty to pull flavors from different profiles including Asian. Latin and East coast dishes that he is able to weave together to come up with unique yet familiar cuisine.

Guests who dine at Bite are sure to get to know Leif as well as his chef, Jason Morgan, as they prepare the meals at the bar.

The most popular sandwich ordered is the Lobster Roll. This is because of its authentic New England taste and the fact that it has no fillers. It is simply lobster lightly dressed and placed on a lobster roll. The Street Corn is also a popular choice. The sweet, salty and smoky combination of ingredients makes an awesome combination of tastes.

When dinner becomes available, guests will be invited to bring their own bottles of wine to perfectly complement their meal and their personal budgets.
