Atlanta Grill Reveals Plans for a Redefined Menu and Design
ATLANTA, GA – July 7, 2016 – The iconic downtown steakhouse Atlanta Grill has announced plans for updates including a new concept featuring a fresh menu and cocktail program and redesigned interiors. AG will offer a modern steakhouse experience inspired by Southern hospitality when it reopens in September.
“As the culinary landscape continues to evolve, we wanted to do the same with AG by creating a new space and concept that fuses modern, multidimensional elements with our beloved traditional steakhouse,” said general manager Manuel Deisen. “After a successful 17 years downtown, our culinary team looks forward to unveiling the new AG in September and seeing the concept come to life.”
A day in AG will begin with breakfast with dishes like Pig and Grits and Banana Pudding French Toast and a fresh juice station with homemade juices. Sip on the flavors of Georgia with the iced tea experience at lunch with highlights including Smoked Brisket Sandwich and Enchanted Springs Trout with local vegetables. The restaurant closes for a break before dinner as the ambiance changes to evening. The menu of grilled steaks and seafood features food sourcing that is sustainable and responsible with vendors such as Niman Ranch, Sustainable Seafood and Southeast Family Farms with dishes like Bone Marrow and Tomahawk Ribeye. The meal concludes with desserts like a Flaming Baked Alaskan.
AG will offer a compelling wine program showcasing sommelier Brian White’s unique talent and a cocktail program led by Diego Gentili, assistant food and beverage director. AG’s new cocktail program will emphasize classic libations, elevated with seasonal and house-made ingredients and a cutting-edge ice program.
The concept will also feature remodeled interiors to create a modern feel through plush saddle-colored leather booths, a combination of black and white floor tiles and hardwood floors, elegant lighting fixtures and sleek marble table tops.
The restaurant will also update its two private dining rooms – the “Kitchen” and the “Distillery” – which will be available for events and private dinners. The Kitchen will offer a rustic, communal chef’s table, while the Distillery room will feature a mixology experience, displaying bitters, herbs, whiskeys and branded garnishes throughout the room.
The restaurant will close for renovations on July 18 and reopen to the public on September 3.
