Lazy Betty, the Candler Park restaurant from Executive Chef and Partner Ron Hsu, and Chef de Cuisine and Partner Aaron Phillips, is set to open Tuesday, February 26.
Lazy Betty will offer a la carte dining for walk-in guests and two tasting menu options, available for reservations only.
It replaces Radial Cafe, at 1530 DeKalb Avenue NE.
Originally, Lazy Betty was going to open in space adjacent Sweet Auburn BBQ in Poncey-Highland.
“After hosting preview supper club dinners last year and working to conceptualize our space, we are excited to open our doors and get cooking,” Hsu said in a press release Thursday.
“Lazy Betty has a great team, and we are proud to offer something new and special in Atlanta.”
Two distinct tasting menus will be served in the dining room––a seven-course Lazy Betty Tasting Menu and a ten-course Chef’s Tasting Menu, available at the restaurant’s chef counter that seats eight.
The menus will change regularly with the seasons.
Courses featured on the opening tasting menus include Charred Spanish Octopus with fermented black bean and Pearson peaches; “Steak and Eggs” with wasabi and ponzu-scented jus; Cauliflower “Bone Marrow” with onion marmalade; and Foie Gras with “preserved” gooseberries and petite salad.
A la carte dining will be available in the restaurant’s lounge area.
Walk-in guests can enjoy a selection of starters including Salmon Tartare with burnt citrus and herbed nage as well as entrees such as LB “Fried Rice,” made with crispy rice cake, five-spiced duck, and Chinese sausage.
Dessert options include Ginger Spiced Donuts, assortments of ice cream and sorbet, and more.
On the beverage side will be a wine list of offerings sourced from boutique wineries with a focus on biodynamic wines and organically-grown grapes.
Guests will also be able to sip on sake, craft cocktails, and beer, brewed locally and internationally.
Local architecture firm Praxis3 designed Lazy Betty with an “industrial chic aesthetic” of soft, muted colors, exposed brick, and concrete flooring.
Artwork from Jenifer Thoem and Christina Kwan is featured in the 28-seat dining room, and a lounge area and chef counter add another 18 seats.
An outdoor patio seating 25 will open soon.
