Cape Dutch Wants to Dull the Pain From Atlanta Traffic With Wine Specials

Atlantans can drown their commuting sorrows at the Piedmont Heights restaurant

Taking inspiration from Chick-fil-A and Nakato Japanese Restaurant, Cape Dutch has come up with a new special to ease the pain of Atlanta’s current traffic disaster. Each night of service, Tuesday through Saturday, the Piedmont Heights restaurant is pouring its entire by-the-glass wine list for half-price from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

A representative tells Eater Atlanta restaurateur Justin Anthony hopes to bring in “area locals who can swing by once they’ve made it home, folks on their way home that need a pit stop, and those who want to wait out rush hour with their vast, global wine selection (and of course, dinner).” Cape Dutch is also working with Lyft on a possible promo code, because it’s a bad idea to overindulge and get behind the wheel, and the collapse of I-85 and subsequent commuting nightmare no doubt will inspire some overindulgence. However, the promo has not yet been finalized.

In addition to Cape Dutch, Buckhead’s Divan Restaurant & Hookah Lounge and Saltyard are now offering traffic-related specials. Divan is serving a $25 three-course dinner, Sunday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saltyard is serving $1.50 oysters, $6 glasses of wine, and $4 local draft beers, Monday through Friday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
