Hush Dinner Club Founder Bea Lewis has plans to open an “American, diner-inspired restaurant” called “Concept,” according to a press release Monday.
Concept will open in the Summerhill neighborhood of Atlanta, at 59 Georgia Ave SE, directly across the street from the recently-debuted Halfway Crooks.
Lewis is targeting an early 2020 opening for Concept.
Devon Banks—Bacchanalia, The Spence, 1Kept—will serve as head chef, with Secondary Chef Richard Fletcher (currently serves as the sous chef at South City Kitchen at Avalon).
“Superior food and exceptional service are the two key ingredients for an extraordinary dining experience,” Lewis in a press release.
“Devon and Richard are deeply passionate about food and flavor, and I’m confident their knowledge of cooking and commitment to creating thoughtful dining experiences for guests will create an atmosphere everyone will enjoy.”
Atlanta-based NO Architecture, whose portfolio includes the likes of King + Duke, Pancake Social, and Superica, is designing the space which will “look and feel” like a “traditional 1950s diner.”
A representative with NO in an email Monday told What Now Atlanta renderings for the restaurant are still being finalized and could be available in the next few weeks.
There will be a 1,200 square-foot dining room, an open, industrial 1,300 square-foot kitchen, and a 2,000 square-foot patio (which can be reserved for private events).
Concept’s menu will include entrees like the Steelhead trout with pineapple and corn salsa and pasture-raised chicken with honey truffle glaze.
A limited wine list and seasonal cocktails curated by Holy Sip round out the beverage program.
