Modern Buckhead ~ what now atlanta

Connecticut-based restaurant group to open tasting room, market and restaurant on Piedmont Road.

UPDATE (Oct. 15, 2012):Modern Bar + Restaurant opening in Buckhead Oct. 20

Buckhead is getting Atlanta's newest "new American cuisine" restaurant.

It's called Modern Buckhead, has three concepts built in one and is opening at 3356 Piedmont Road.

It will offer a restaurant, tasting room and market, according to Modern's website and will replace the now shuttered Copeland's of Buckhead. Copeland's closed mid-August.

The space is being redesigned by architect Jay George of Evolution Design. Kane Xu, a restauranteur from Connecticut and owner of the Eastwood Restaurant Group, will open Modern in Buckhead.

The restaurant portion of the concept, as defined by its website:

The MODERN main dining room features cuisine described as "casual elegant dining" for lunch and dinner. The same menu will be available in the newly renovated bar that opens onto Piedmont Road with outdoor seating. The MODERN bar and main dining room promises to feature the most exciting New American cuisine in Atlanta with a focus on seafood along with prime meats. Offerings will range from butter poached Maine lobster with asparagus & mushroom risotto to a lamb shank slow roasted with fall glazed root vegetables served with stone ground grits and lamb jus, as well as a Wagyu burger.

The tasting room portion of the concept, as defined by its website:

The MODERN Tasting Room will be open nightly featuring five to seven courses from the Chef's tasting menu. The Tasting Room will seat around 45 guests in addition to a chef's table that seats 12 to 16 and is separated from the kitchen by a glass wall. MODERN Tasting Room is available by reservation, but every attempt will be made to accommodate those who walk in seeking a unique and more specialized dining experience.

The market portion of the concept, as defined by its website:

MODERN Market will be a reinvention of a "coffee shop" offering homemade bread, ice cream, a variety of desserts, coffee, tea, cappuccino and other beverages. In addition, the MODERN Market will feature signature sauces, dressings and prepared food for MODERN enthusiasts who want to enjoy the flavors in the comfort of their home. The MODERN Market will be open from early morning until midnight.

Modern is scheduled to open in the Atlanta Marketplace in early fall, 2011.

  1. Menu looks decent. I don't know what to expect out of "casual elegant" though, when it comes to Atlanta, and Buckhead in particular. "Casual" usually means chicken wings, and "Elegant" usually means pretentious, and not very good, food served on white linens to a bunch of Buckhead Betty's and their previously roided, quickly dilapidating husbands, intertwined with a considerably older, stuffier crowd. Here's to hoping this place is a bit different...

  2. "quickly dilapidating husbands"
    It is as if the lack of UGA fraternity events cause them to become overweight and completely bald by age thirty. Oh for the glory days. So sad.

  3. Construction fencing has been put up around the exterior of this site and it looks like the patio has been torn up

  4. New banners were put up advertising an August opening.

    That said, I think the place will be open 6 months tops. Modern is such a terrible name for a restaurant and they will probably be too gimmicky to get the food/drinks to match the name and will fall short on execution.

  5. Still not open........obviously not ready for prime time and Atlanta with the management in place.......Helter Skelter Grouping of ex Buckhead Life desirables

  6. Now I get it, the G.M. Has been replaced.( According to the website ).......duh no wonder.....good luck with the new regime........
