Depends where in Alpharetta. Basic answer is no.
Closest shul and kosher restaurant is about 20-30 min drive.

Has anyone used Kosher Gourmet for plated "executive" meals? Looking to order from them for an upcoming business dinner in Buckhead.

Hi,

I'm planning a trip to Atlanta for Pesach chol hamoed.
Landing Monday morning and leaving Wednesday night.

What is my best option for a Marriott/SPG hotel on points that is not too far from a shul that has minyan then and not too far from all the attractions (if possible)?
Which shul has regular minyanim on chol hamoed?
Is there any supermarket or restaurant that will have kosher for Pesach food?
Is it worth renting a car in the airport or using Uber?

TIA!

I'll be in Atlanta for a conference next week, staying at the JW Marriott Buckhead. What are the closest kosher food options? Preferably with delivery (or available with Grubhub or ubereats) as I won't have a car.

Fuego Mundo is a nice kosher restaurant that is appropriate for business meetings.  The other kosher places aren't really business-friendly.

Thanks! I don't want a restaurant, just a nice large Starbucks or something similar. Want it to be close to kosher food so I can go eat afterwards
