Restaurant/lounge slated to open Downtown September 19.
Suite Food Lounge is coming soon to Downtown.
The restaurant and lounge announced in a press release Monday it is set to open on Thursday, September 19.
“With all of the changes coming to Downtown, we saw a need for a different kind of establishment here,” Terry Clark, co-owner of Suite Food Lounge said in the release.
“What we offer is a place where families can come and enjoy a great, affordable meal for lunch or dinner, which transforms at night into a sophisticated bar and lounge hosting some of the best local musical talent...”
Suite Food Lounge will replace Luckie Food Lounge, at 375 Luckie Street NW (at the corner of Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard).
The full service restaurant and lounge will serve "contemporary American cuisine with traditional Southern influences," according to the release.
The menu, created by chef Michael Stevenson, features small sharable plates, wood-fired pizzas, and signature entrees.
There will be gourmet coffee drinks, fresh juices and homemade pastries from pastry chef Tonisha Jackson, and a limited lounge menu for late night dining.
Suite Food Lounge is divided into three levels: the ground floor features the main dining room, a VIP lounge and dance floor, and two full bars; downstairs there is a private dining space called The Royal Suite; upstairs is The Penthouse, a larger private and VIP area with a separate bar and a sky deck with views of Downtown.
