New French-American restaurant Tiny Lou’s officially opens today at the renovated Hotel Clermont at 789 Ponce de Leon Ave. Owner Indigo Road Hospitality Group shared the news with What Now Atlanta in a press release.
Leading Tiny Lou’s is executive Chef Jeb Aldrich and director of restaurants Nick Hassiotis, who will also oversee food and beverage at the hotel’s other culinary operations. That includes the property’s lobby bar, cafe and a rooftop terrace.
“This concept has been six years in the making, and we’ve found the perfect home within Hotel Clermont,” said Indigo Road Managing Partner Steve Palmer. “This property has a bold personality and past, and we have a great team on board embracing that character within Tiny Lou’s. As soon as you walk through our doors, there’s a little something for everyone.”
Tiny Lou’s will include quite a few references to the hotel’s checkered history, as well as the notorious Clermont Lounge in the basement. The name itself refers to a dancer who at one time performed at the Clermont Lounge and gained fame as “the girl who refused to dance with Hitler.” Other references abound on dinner and dessert menus, which includes items like chocolate stilettos and lip-shaped bonbons.
Tiny Lou’s joins Indigo Road’s lineup of other Atlanta-area restaurants, which includes Colletta and Oak Steakhouse in Alpharetta, and O-Ku and Donetto in West Midtown.
According to the restaurant’s press release, it will be open for dinner Sunday through Thursday from 5 to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 5 to 11 p.m.
