UPDATE (October 24, 2018): Aix, Tin Tin Target November Opening on Atlanta’s Westside
Chef Nick Leahy of Saltyard Monday in a press release announced plans to open two adjoining concepts in West Midtown’s Stockyards development.
Aix, a provençal restaurant, and Tin Tin, a wine bar, will offer lunch and dinner and neighbor each other in the adaptive reuse property on Brady Avenue.
Aix (pronounced “ex”) is named for Aix-en-Provence, the city in the South of France where Nick’s family originates and where he has spent substantial time throughout his life.
Serving mostly French wines, Tin Tin is named for the matriarch of Nick’s French family and will showcase stencils of her handwritten recipe book on the walls.
The two restaurants will share a kitchen but operate independently with their own menus.
The menus will be an extension of Nick’s personal story and inspired by the food that first sparked his love for cooking—”classic, bright, fresh flavors” from Southern France.
Aix will serve dishes like bouillabaisse with local seafood; crudo of skuna bay salmon with preserved lemon, dill, crispy capers and crème fraîche; roasted tomato gazpacho with lump crab and English pea salad; and tarte tropézienne.
Highlights from Tin Tin’s lunch menu will include Provençal dishes like pissaladière, vegetable tarts, stuffed baguettes and rotisserie chicken.
At night, Tin Tin will serve cheeses, crudo, and olives.
Both concepts will join the recently-opened The Painted Duck in Stockyards.
