We have our answer as to the name of the restaurant going in at Georgia Tech’s Technology Square. WaterHaven, with a “chef driven menu of contemporary American fare,” is scheduled to open in mid-May. According to the information out there, the restaurant is set to be a farm to table concept in a casual atmosphere.
Joe McCarthy, WaterHaven’s owner, previously served as a general manager at Houston’s, a regional manager at Longhorn, and the Southeast director of operations at The Capital Grille. To run the kitchen, McCarthy hired Chris Lee to serve as executive chef. Lee has been in Atlanta since 1999. His past works include South City Kitchen, La Tavola in Virginia Highlands, Sampan, and The Real Chow Baby.
I’ll let you know when a hard date is set. In the meantime, I’ve made this the first addition to the May Dirty List (a google map of upcoming Atlanta restaurants).
