Atlanta’s coolest new dining experience—a café, wine bar and market all in one stop.
The Epicurean Atlanta is a culinary-themed hotel with an 85-seat demonstration kitchen/theatre. The main restaurant, Reverence, has a glass-walled kitchen were guests can see as Executive Chef Ewart Wardhaugh and his team prep, cook and finesse the finishing touches on dishes. The hotel’s 9th floor Sky Terrace is a great spot to enjoy a cocktail while overlooking the downtown skyline. This is truly an awesome Atlanta experience.
Ron Hsu, Aaron Phillips and Carl Van Tyle Gilbert (the team behind Lazy Betty) got together to create a modern Vietnamese cafe/bakery. They offer a full day menu that brings a fun flavor spin on a global selection of dishes. Steamed Mussels with starfruit and a lemongrass-coconut broth, a selection of banh mi’s, noodles and salads will keep you busy deciding, or stick with the Vietnamese hot fried chicken. Quench your thirst with everything from sochu and sake to hard seltzer and wine.
Castellucci Hospitality Group’s new restaurant will offer edomae style sushi (a style of sushi that involves using preservation techniques to cure the fish) led by New York transplant Chef J. Trent Harris. Expect two tasting menu options—a curated combination of modern edomae sushi and kappo style hot and cold dishes. If you’re a sushi eater, go ahead and add this to your list.
Located at the Thompson Buckhead, the main restaurant will be managed by Chef Todd Ginsberg and the Rye Restaurant’s team (of the much beloved West Egg and The General Muir) and Executive Chef Josh Hopkins. This will have an Italian-American theme. The hotel will also have a tenth floor rooftop bar with great city views, private cabanas and a pool.
