American Cut

It seems we hardly scratched the surface of the new restaurants opening around Intown in our October feature story. So, we’ve gathered up a second big list of just opened – or soon to open – eateries that you should add to your “must-try” list for the winter.

American Cut and The Regent Cocktail Club
The LDV Hospitality concepts are now open The Shops Buckhead Atlanta. The modern American steak restaurant offers menu items like the 40-ounce Tomahawk chop steak and chili lobster, with a mix of tableside salad preparations. The rooftop terrace Regent Cocktail Club offers a rotating specialty cocktail menu and an eclectic mix of live music. Information:

This Indian fusion restaurant from Sandeep Kothary and Chef Bhavesh Patel is opening soon just steps from the BeltLine’s Eastside Trail in Inman Park, 870 Inman Park Village Parkway. Follow the progress on their Facebook page.

Monday Night Brewing

Monday Night Brewing
With the Westside trail of the Atlanta BeltLine taking shape, Monday Night Brewing has announced it will open a new brewery next summer at the corner of Lee and White Streets in West End. The brewery will have 22,000 square feet, including tasting rooms and a dog-friendly patio along the BeltLine.

City Winery Speakeasy
The Ponce City Market winery, restaurant and music venue has unveiled a new speakeasy-style, cocktail bar. Every week on City Winery’s social media, a name will be released. Come to the unmarked door located directly to the left of Binders and give the door person the name to gain entry. The menu includes cocktails, small batch spirits and lively tunes from a record player. Walls are adorned with vintage, used electrical switches and boards from the old Sears & Roebuck that preceded Ponce City Market. Those who buy a bottle of wine can pick out a record to play a curated selection of vinyl. Information:

The Federal
Chef Shaun Doty shuttered his Bantam + Biddy concept at 1050 Crescent Ave. in Midtown to make was for something new – The Federal. The bistro will feature traditional cuisine inspired by Doty’s stints abroad and in different parts of America, including steak frites and chopped liver. The restaurant’s name is inspired by the nearby Federal Reserve Bank building. An opening date hasn’t been set, but follow their Facebook page for updates.

Java Cats Café
If you’re a cat lover, this new café in Grant Park will be right up your alley. Set to open before year’s end, the café at 415 Memorial Drive has partnered with PAWS Atlanta to foster up to 20 kitties at a time in the “cat room.” All the cats will be available for adoption. You can also enjoy a cup of coffee from Ebrik and prepared food items. Information:

Jinya Ramen Bar
Already a hit in Sandy Springs, the ramen joint will open a second location in Buckhead early next year at Powers Ferry Square on Roswell Road. Information:
