Set to open the first week in December, 10th & Piedmont replaces Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse next to Gilbert's Café & Bar. The new restaurant will be owned and managed by Sean Yeremyan and Gilbert Yeremyan, the guys behind Gilbert's, but it will offer a different look, feel, and flavor, despite having a door connecting the two spaces. 10th & Piedmont will focus on "seasonally inspired" small plates, instilling a Southern influence on global cuisine.
Prior to creating the 10th & Piedmont concept, the Yeremyan brothers held a focus group with prominent neighborhood residents across the street above Jason's Deli. The group discussed what the neighborhood lacked in terms of restaurants, and the Yeremyans worked to fill that void.
The result is a restaurant with a more modern feel than Gilbert's that still serves as a comfortable, neighborhood respite of sorts. There will be dark tables with white chairs and yellow accents. Iron and metal globe lights from Brooklyn will hang from the ceilings, and green, gold, silver, and brown banquettes add interest to the space. Bookshelves will separate the bar from the dining room and from the lounge.
The bar will focus on vodkas from around the world, while the menu features 10 to 14 four-to-six-piece "shareable bites." The idea is that Atlantans can come and have a drink and an appetizer and not feel pressured to order a whole meal when they really just want to socialize. Guests will be able to feel involved in their meals by making "instant infusions" at the table. House-infused vodkas and flights will be offered as well.
