BUCKHEAD, GA —is a New American neighborhood restaurant opening next month in Buckhead.
Located at 4320 Powers Ferry Road Northwest in Atlanta, the restaurant will open in the location that formerly housed Horseradish Grill, and Christopher Grossman, formerly of Atlas at The St. Regis, will serve as Executive Chef and Operating Partner. The Chastain will offer a menu of refined comfort food in a warm and welcoming space for everyday dining.
Set inside a former roadside country store, The Chastain will honor and maintain the soul of the historic building while opening up the 2500-square-foot main floor space for a lighter and brighter atmosphere that brings the outdoors in. Local firm Siegel Construction & Design is leading the project, which will keep the timeless feel of the restaurant and feature large iron-rimmed windows and doors that connect the inside with multiple patios and spotlight the restaurant’s lush garden.
Grossman will draw inspiration from the best local ingredients and seasonal harvest to create dishes ranging from classic favorites to inventive new takes. Prior to his most recent chef position at Atlas, Grossman worked under Thomas Keller at world-renowned Napa Valley restaurant The French Laundry and served as Chef de Cuisine under Gerry Klaskala at Aria in Atlanta.
The Chastain will welcome General Manager Justin Craft to the team. Craft brings decades of operational experience to The Chastain, including roles with Fifth Group Restaurants, Isakson Living and Bones. A native Atlantan and a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America, Justin was a Research and Development Chef in Southern Living’s test kitchen before making the move into hospitality and operations.
