French restaurant Aix and its neighboring wine bar, Tin Tin, owned by former Saltyard executive chef Nick Leahy, just released sneak peeks of their menus. Both plan to open sometime in November at the Stockyards on Brady Avenue in Westside.
The menu at Aix will focus on dishes from southern France such as shrimp Provencal, grilled lamb loin with chestnut dumplings and cabbage puree, and a pork belly cassoulet. Aix will be open seven days a week for dinner only.
Leahy calls Aix a “dream come true” and his way of sharing the food he recalls from his childhood in Aix-en-Provence, France, with Atlanta.
The 93-seat dining room also features a bar and nook with banquette seating as well as a private wine room, which accommodates up to 10 people.
The menu for Tin Tin comprises mainly small plates and includes a L’Apero (a sort of French happy hour) between lunch and dinner with cheeses, crudo, and olives. The bar will offer mainly French wines. Tin Tin will be open daily for lunch and dinner, and features tables along with a wraparound bar for up to 30 people. The patio contains additional seating for 64.
“I hope to share the lighthearted spirit of Provence while providing a space for Atlantans to slow down, experience joy, and create memories, just as Provencal cuisine has allowed me to do from a very young age,” Leahy says in the press release.
Aix and Tin Tin will join Donetto and the Painted Duck, which are already open at the Brady Avenue complex across from chef Steven Satterfield’s Miller Union, not far from Westside Provisions District.
