The Alden in Chamblee’s Parkview on Peachtree Now Open

April 10 was the first day for the 'neighborhood restaurant.'

The Alden in Chamblee’s Parkview on Peachtree mixed-use development opened its doors April 10, according to a press release Tuesday.

Chef Jared Alden Hucks is behind the new "neighborhood restaurant."

“The Alden is about nurturing our guests,” Hucks said in the release.

“While there is an emphasis on fine food, this is truly a neighborhood restaurant with a comfortable, casual ambiance where diners can feel at home.”

The Alden offers American cuisine with "a modern twist on Southern classics and other culturally influenced mainstays."

Dinner options are divided into smaller dishes ($7-$21) and larger dishes ($23-$38), and include the following:

  • The pan Asian egg – soft coddled farm egg, bok choy, ginger, rice cracker ($15)
  • Maine sea scallops – allium, chorizo picante, kale, preserved lime ($18)
  • Florida grouper – pepperoni arrosto, black olive oil, pine nuts, caper berry ($31)
  • Border Springs rack of lamb with rosemary – parsley root, glazed turnips, plum, mint jus ($38)

For brunch, the menu includes items like:

  • Turkey and sweet potato hash – red jasmine rice, peppers, crispy shallots, basted egg and prik nam pla ($14)
  • Grilled steak and eggs benedict – black onion jam, red wine jelly, béarnaise, brioche and watercress ($18)

The Alden features 11 counter seats and a tasting menu with optional pairings is available to "those who want to experience the action first-hand."

The cocktail menu focuses on botanical-driven drinks using seasonal juices, sodas, bitters, vermouth and tonics that are all in-house.

Adam Fox, vice president of sales for Domaine Select Wine and Spirits and Hucks’ partner in former pop-up supper club Dogwood Table, has curated the wine list that "highlights natural wine producers from independently owned farms practicing biodynamic winemaking."

The beer selection centers on domestic craft producers creating old-world style beers.

The restaurant’s design is centered around an open kitchen that allows Hucks and his staff to communicate openly with guests and contributes to the convivial atmosphere.

The space features tall ceilings, natural materials and a palette of earth tones, and light fixtures and art installations from glass blower Rob Stern.

The Alden, at 5070 Peachtree Boulevard, is open for dinner from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Sunday brunch is served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
