Atlanta native Chef Gerry “G” Garvin is planning to open LowCountry Steak on the ground floor of the Hanover West Peachtree mixed-use building, joining Nagomiya Japanese eatery, Yoga Six exercise studio, and apparel retailer Stray Glass.
What Now Atlanta (WNA) confirmed with Garvin over email that a buildout has already begun for the forthcoming restaurant.
The 4,528-square-foot space will open for lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch, and will have capacity for 135 patrons.
“We’re really excited about this new endeavor as it’s a slight departure from our Southern Cuisine model and more of an upscale Steakhouse with incredible dishes and wine selection,” Garvin told WNA.
Though the menu hasn’t been 100 percent finalized yet, Garvin said diners can expect entrees like Five Hour Slow Braised Short Rib Ragout with penne pasta or a Georgia Shrimp and Carolina Stone Ground Grits; think slow-cooked grits with mild cheddar, crispy bacon, sautéed shrimp and garlic butter.
Walter Jordan and the DWRC Group is working with Garvin in developing the concept.
Alongside his Cooking Channel series Roadtrip with G. Garvin, which ran from 2012 to 2014, and among other signature culinary pursuits under his LowCountry Restaurant LLC brand between Atlanta and Los Angeles, Garvin opened LowCountry Southern Cuisine in Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport‘s Concourse A in April 2013.
The midtown steakhouse will be ready by Summer 2020 according to Hanover West Peachtree’s leasing representative, but reps from LowCountry are crossing their fingers for a late-Spring, early-Summer 2020 finish.
Garvin has been seeking space in midtown for LowCountry for nearly three years.
The chef in late-2017 was “in negotiations” for the former Vini Vidi Vici space but the deal never came to fruition, a leasing rep at the time confirmed with WNA.
