Mission + Market is certified open at Three Alliance Center in Buckhead. The restaurant, from former Murphy’s chef Ian Winslade and local restaurateur Jonathan Akly, is serving lunch and dinner only at the moment. Saturday brunch is planned for later in April. Chef Ricky Navas (Storico Fresco) has been tapped as Winslade’s chef de cuisine.
The design of the 5000-square-foot restaurant by Akly’s father, Tony, of Restaurant Consulting Groups, Inc., is befitting of Buckhead’s financial district and the daily business of wining and dining big money clients. A 140-seat dining room is bathed in natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows which surround it and features plenty of clean lines, varying shades of blue and dark wood, black leather, and velvet banquettes.
Take a look inside Mission + Market.
A living moss wall separates the main dining room from the lounge and 16-seat bar with an 8-seat chef’s counter near the kitchen. Expect serious city views from Mission + Market’s wrap-around patio which plans to open soon with its fire pits, ceiling fans, and loungers.
The food at Mission + Market is a mix of fresh, classic, and familiar with shared plates like hummus, grilled Spanish octopus, and thin crust pizzas along with larger entrees such as seared steelhead trout.
At the bar, cocktails also skew classic with a selection of local beers on tap, while the dining room focuses on making an impression with its high-end and reserve wine lists.
Complimentary valet is available as is self-parking. Open Monday - Friday for lunch and dinner and Saturday for dinner only.
