American Food and Beverage will open in the Buckhead Atlanta mixed-use development between November 14 and December 1, according to Atlanta Magazine. Like pizzeria Thirteen Pies, which recently opened in the same development, it's the second location for a Ft. Worth, Texas-based restaurant.
Jeremy Miller, the creator of Miller's Artisan Sodas and formerly of Bluepointe, STK, and Napa Valley's The French Laundry, is in as executive chef. While the food will be more on the casual side, Miller says the kitchen, which includes a wood-burning rotisserie, will be run as if it were fine dining. The menu is still a work in progress, but a few dishes are on the chef's radar.
It's still in the works. We'll have house-made Chorizo and Scotch Egg-a classic dish that we take to the next level with different flavors and a Mexican influence. We'll probably use Grassroots Farm eggs. We coat it in masa mixed with seltzer for tempura. Then it's dipped in panko and fried. It's topped with chilies, lime juice, and cilantro. It almost tastes like a taco. We might do a Brunswick strew, maybe a vegetable broth-based soup since we'll open in the winter. We have a turkey pastrami sandwich on Holeman & Finch bread for lunch. Everything is done in house-the chips, fries, condiments, and pickles. Dinner items will stay very seasonal.
As for the beverage program: "The majority of spirits, beer, and wines are all American." The bar will offer wines based out of Texas and a selection of local beers.
