Pano Karatassos, president of Buckhead Life Restaurant Group, is teaming with Philips Arena and Levy Restaurants to open RED, reports The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and What Now, Atlanta. The new $2 million restaurant will be open before, during, and after Hawks games and other ticketed events beginning February 2012, replacing Headlines Bar and Grill. The contemporary American menu (crab cake BLT, chicken wings, steak, burgers) aims to please the arena's "entire fan base" and the space will be designed by The Johnson Studio (Ecco, The Glenn Hotel, Bistro Niko). The dining room will feature views of the action inside the arena as well as a show kitchen for guests more interested in the food.
