Olmsted & Article 14 : Two New Atlanta Restaurants, One Midtown Location [Openings] 5

Posted by Foodie Buddha on August 06, 2012

So what we have here is more “coming soon” news in the form of Olmsted and Article 14 (two separate Atlanta restaurants).  To be honest, I can’t stand writing this stuff as it makes me sound like a stodgy journalist … something I’m most definitely not (on either front). Be that as it may, the situation is that these two compadres are getting inserted into Symphony Tower (aka – 1180 Peachtree) in the not too distant future.

A few months back, the biz chronicle broke word that Legacy Restaurant Partners (STATS, Max’s, Glenn’s Kitchen, etc.) planed to open a restaurant in the former Trois space in Midtown.  Seeing as it’s a cavernous “room”(something like 14,000 square feet), it’s not a total surprise to hear that there are two restaurants going in.  There’s a little bit more to be said … so click that little linky thing that says “continue reading” if you fancy yourself curious.

There’s no doubt that traffic for this cougar-iffic hotspot has dwindled significantly in the last few months.  Time will tell if the redeux will fare any better.

Another week comes, another “restaurant week” hits.  Atlanta’s Midtown Restaurant Week, which drops for the 4th time, starts tonight (August 29) and runs through Sunday, September 6th.  This one features a whopping 43 restaurants (if my math is correct).  In what has become formulaic normalcy, you show up at one of the participating restaurants, ask for and order off a special prix-fixe menu, and get three courses for $25.  Don’t forget: alcohol isn’t included, and neither is tax and gratuity.  If you want the full on onslaught of information, check out the Midtown Restaurant Week official website.  Otherwise, just keep reading for the list of menus and restaurants!
