The Select, owned by Dave Green and David Lester (Paces & Vine), opens at the City Springs development in Sandy Springs next month. It’s fashioned after Le Select brasserie in Paris — once a popular haunt for artists and writers such as Pablo Picasso, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Ernest Hemingway, who referenced the restaurant in his novels The Sun Also Rises and A Moveable Feast.
Dishes on the dinner, late night, and weekend brunch menus feature a mix of American and Southern comfort food and French-European entrees and small plates from chef Matt Rainey. Cocktails, bottle and draft beers, and 30 wines by-the-glass from France, Italy, Australia, and America are offered at the bar.
The restaurant, designed by Smith Hanes Studio, includes a 75-seat dining room and a large, glass-enclosed indoor patio opening to a terrace overlooking the park. Late night live music is also planned, starting at 10 p.m.
The Select joins second locations of Café Vendôme and Flower Child, and Vietnamese restaurant Nam Kitchen (from MF Sushi owners) at City Springs.
