Chef Ian Winslade Wednesday announced plans to partner with local restaurateur Jonathan Akly to open Mission + Market inside the new Three Alliance Center building.
Winslade is leaving his post at Atlanta-favorite Murphy’s to open Mission + Market.
“I had an incredible tenure at Murphy’s and enjoyed being part of an Atlanta staple these last six and half years,” Winslade said in a press release.
“My vision for Mission + Market is to bring something a little different and hopefully unexpected to the growing city of Atlanta while being able to showcase my own style.”
Mission + Market will offer contemporary American food and a cocktail program primarily focusing on cocktails rooted in the classics “but with a twist using high-end, fresh ingredients.”
A carefully curated wine selection will also be available, with plans to add higher end and reserve options following the March 2018 opening.
“I want to channel that feeling you get from dining in Northern California. I’ve had many West Coast culinary experiences that are simple, clean, bright and comforting. I am excited to use ingredients that are relevant and contemporary yet rooted in modern technique while giving guests a relatable and approachable cosmopolitan experience.”
Tony Akly and the Restaurants Consulting Group, Inc. are leading the architectural and interior design of the 5,000-square-foot space which will offer a touch of mid-century modern design elements throughout using black leather and antique brass furnishings.
An outdoor wrap-around patio is also planned for the restaurant.
