Atlas, one of the Southeast’s premier dining destinations located within the St. Regis Atlanta, has revealed initial plans for a complete renovation of its already popular terrace.  What will be an oasis in the heart of Buckhead, the terrace will provide guests with an all-season, enchanted garden experience.  Not only will the new terrace be an extension of the comfortable and lively atmosphere the Tavern at Atlas has become known for, but it will also serve as a stand-alone bar and dining destination boasting chef-driven small plates, award-winning cuisine from the dining room, cocktails and live music.  

“When Atlas took over the restaurant space at the St. Regis, a complete renovation of the interior occurred as part of a three-phase plan,” says Atlas General Manager Geno Dew. “With the Tavern at Atlas being the second phase, we’re now thrilled to give the exterior a facelift as we continue our commitment to always provide exceptional experiences as one of the Southeast’s must-go dining and cocktail destinations.  We could not be more thankful of Buckhead community and locals and visitors alike for their support to help us achieve this vision and for our ongoing success.” 

Set to be completed in early 2019 in conjunction with the four-year anniversary, the new 3,070-square foot terrace designed by The Johnson Studio at Cooper Carry will offer 100 seats in the dining area along with 24 dedicated bar seats. Playing to Atlanta’s weather and complimenting Atlas’ acclaimed interior, the new terrace will feature a vaulted glass and steel roof, sliding glass windows that open onto One Buckhead Plaza, an up lit tree sculpture featured at the bar, and focal trees throughout the dining space that will create an intimate dining setting.  More details will be released in the coming months. 

Throughout the renovation process, which will take place outside of operating hours, Atlas will continue to provide its unparalleled standards of service. Celebrating the very best in seasonal American cuisine combined with European influences created by Executive Chef Christopher Grossman, guests are invited to revel in a fine dining experience in the dining room or take advantage of The Tavern featuring a chef-driven small plates menu and hand-shaken cocktails. Atlas also boasts an acclaimed art installation that includes more than 30 pieces from esteemed artists including Foujita, Monet, Chagall, Modigliani and Soutine. The impressive gallery of 20th century artwork has been hand-selected from The Lewis Collection, one of the largest private art collections in the world.

Last night, a swanky Wednesday evening was had at Swoox, in Buckhead. I was excited to attend the private soiree hosted by Harry Norman Realtors.

Swoox partner Jennifer Balcos and Harry Norman Luxury Brand Manager Alex R. Page curated a guest list of top HN agents to introduce them (and potentially their exclusive clientele) to all the fabulous services Swoox has to offer. Guests sipped on bubbly and enjoyed lite bites from Yebo while perusing the elegant showroom filled with chic vignettes, designer jewelry and original paintings.

Jenn and Alex were the perfect hosts... one lucky guest went home with a gift basket full of Swoox!


Atlas Welcomes Geno Dew as General Manager

Atlas is pleased to welcome Geno Dew as General Manager. The acclaimed Atlanta restaurant is located in the heart of Buckhead at The St. Regis Atlanta.  Offering a wealth of experience, Dew most recently served as General Manager of STK in Atlanta and has a rich history working within the hospitality industry. During his tenure with Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants, Dew led teams for award-winning restaurants in Atlanta, Washington DC and Miami, as well as opening Enoteca Carbonari and Spice Market by Jean Georges.  

“Being able to lead the Atlas team is a dream come true, tailor-made for me with everything in life that I love and am passionate about,” says Dew. “Our guests delight in the cornerstones of what makes the Atlas experience so special - you see the work of Masters not only on the walls, but also on the plate and in the glass.”   

 Thanks to strong support from the Atlanta community, Atlas is set to celebrate its two-year anniversary in January 2017. Since opening, the restaurant has garnered both local and national attention for its signature fine dining cuisine, attentive service, and museum-worthy art collection from leading publications including bon appétit, Travel + Leisure, Forbes, Garden & Gun, and Architectural Digest. Most recently, Atlas received a Four Diamond rating from AAA.

“Chef Grossman is the most talented, passionate Chef that I have had the good fortune to collaborate with, along with Caleb Hopkins, one of the best wine directors in the region.  Working with this dream team is incredibly inspiring in itself, but to have the opportunity to serve the diners of Atlanta in the setting that is Atlas completes the circle," adds Dew.
