Golden Eagle, the second restaurant that will take up residence in the former H. Harper Station building, will open to the public on Monday October 30. It joins the recently opened Muchacho at the address. Both ventures come from Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall owner Michael Lennox.
Like Muchacho, which takes inspiration from 1970s Southern California, Golden Eagle will be a bit of a period piece. Lennox says it pays homage to the era of his grandparents in a place such as Pittsburgh, channeling neighborhood corner taverns and hotel lobby bars. He describes the food as “no-nonsense, throwback continental classics of yesteryear.” The menu hasn’t been finalized, but diners can expect dishes such as garlic knots, crab Rangoon, charbroiled oysters, and a tavern steak. Local industry veterans Taria Camerino and Jason Simpson will serve as culinary director and chef de cuisine, respectively.
A large, U-shaped bar will anchor the space, and design elements include red plaid carpet, dim lighting, and crushed velvet seating. The building that houses Golden Eagle and Muchacho is located at 904 Memorial Drive SE, right on a future extension of the Atlanta BeltLine’s Eastside Trail.
