Atlas, the acclaimed restaurant located at the St. Regis Atlanta celebrating both art and seasonal American cuisine combined with European influences, has introduced The Tavern at Atlas. The newly designed library and lounge opens at 4 p.m. daily and offers guests fresh menu of locally-sourced small plates and hand-shaken cocktails served in a comfortable and lively atmosphere.
“We want to create an experience that’s left up to the guest. We hope The Tavern at Atlas will become a go-to destination for creating social connections fueled by a spirited bar and live music,” says Atlas General Manager Geno Dew.
Created by Executive Chef Chris Grossman, The Tavern at Atlas menu boasts perfectly portioned small plates crafted to be shared at by guests at their leisure. New favorites include petit lobster pot pie; citrus-cured salmon flatbread; Atlas sliders; Island Creek roasted oysters on the half shell; rosemary roasted ruby beet tartare; 24-hour cast iron seared steak and more.
Complimenting Chef Grossman’s menu is an impressive beverage program comprised of creative, signature cocktails, wines, bubbly, craft beers and more. With something for all tastes, a sampling of expertly crafted cocktails include the Zac 23 Old Fashioned – Ron Zacapa 23 Rum, Aztec Chocolate and Angostura Bitters, Grapefruit Peel, Ice Ball; Southern Buck American Spirits White Whiskey, Ginger Beer, Lime Juice, Shaved Ice; and The Titaness – Raventos Sparkling Wine, Cocchi Rosa, Creme de Cassis, Lime Juice.
With a goal to convert the lounge and library spaces into a lively environment positioned for a more casual experience within Atlas, The Tavern at Atlas features over-scaled tables and chairs ideal for lingering and catching up with friends over shared plates and cocktails. Introducing gold tones, velvets and faux ostrich upholstery paired with walnut burl wood tables, the new design contrasts the rich colors and patterns of the restaurant’s architecture and fine art collection by using subtle complimentary colors that let the richness of the existing space take center stage. With more seating available, guests can feel comfortable stopping in for a quick bite to lingering long into the night.
Now featuring two unique environments, Atlas will continue to provide a fine dining experience in the dining room in addition to the new menu at The Tavern Atlas. Regardless of which dining options guests choose, both experiences will maintain the Atlas standards for quality, locally-sourced ingredients, artful presentation and unparalleled service.
