The Gathering Spot in a press release this week announced a partnership with Atlanta restauranteur Doug Foley to open WYE Restaurant and Bar at the forthcoming members-only city club.

The restaurant, slated to open early 2016, is a nod to the building’s past as a rail car turnaround and named after the triangular-shaped arrangement of railroad tracks.

“Whether our members are looking to hold a one-on-one business dinner or a large corporate or personal event, WYE at The Gathering Spot offers something for everyone,” Ryan Wilson, CEO of the Gathering Spot, said in the release.

“We designed WYE so that it not only serves up a quality and delicious menu, but also provides a comfortable atmosphere where our staff and members know each other, specifically menu preferences and how they prefer to dine. Based on Doug’s experience with opening and managing restaurants in the Atlanta market, we know that we have recruited the right partner to bring this type of dining experience to our members and their guests.”

Foley, the restauranteur behind Vino Venue, Winchester Woodfire Grill, Featherstone’s, Silver Spoon Cafe, Center Cut Catering and more, is handling WYE Restaurant’s development and daily operations.

WYE will offer full-service dining amenities and a menu of small plates, salads, burgers, sandwiches and large plates, and will change often based on seasonality and availability of locally-sourced vegetables and produce. In addition to a full-service menu, WYE will also have a bar that features craft beers, wine and cocktails.

The restaurant will feature a modern and industrial design, crafted by global design firm Gensler, who also designed the city club in its entirety.
