A new restaurant with a rooftop bar promising a tasting menu, tapas-style dining experience opens at the Works complex next summer, an 80-acre mixed-use development bordering the Underwood Hills and Blandtown neighborhoods.
Backed by the Select and Paces and Vine owner Dave Green, the yet-named restaurant will be located in the Makers building and feature both indoor and outdoor seating with a large patio opening onto the property’s quarter-mile linear park, a walk-up bar serving to-go beverages, and a covered rooftop bar. The restaurant will seat 200 people inside, with additional seating for 100 people outside.
Green says in a press release he’s bringing an “entirely new dining experience” to northwest Atlanta, combining “artfully composed dishes of a tasting menu with the constant energy of an extraordinarily social, tapas style dining experience.” While the restaurant name and menu details should be released later this fall, the press release hints at dishes and cocktails leaning toward flavors and ingredients from Latin America, Spain, and Italy.
A second location of Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, owned by brothers Jonathan and Justin Fox, recently opened at the Works near its other one-acre park. The barbecue restaurant’s northwest Atlanta location is double the size of the original Dekalb Avenue restaurant in Candler Park, seating 258 people between the dining room and a private dining room, two covered patios, and a large indoor/outdoor bar.
Green’s restaurant will eventually join Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q and Dr. Scofflaw’s Laboratory and Beer Garden at the Works, along with nearly a dozen restaurant stalls now open inside Chattahoochee Food Works, a sprawling 31-stall food hall backed by celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern and Robert Montwaid (Gansevoort Market New York City).
Upon its completion, the Works will feature 500 residences, a boutique hotel, and full-service outposts of Fetch dog park and bar and California-based brunch restaurant the Waffle Experience.
Public Transit: The Works is accessible via MARTA bus route #14, with stops at Southland Circle and Van Heusen Boulevard.
