Sandwiched between an industrial park and newly-constructed luxury condominiums, One Midtown Kitchen is a former warehouse, identified by a wall of mystically glowing purple.
Within the 6,000-square-foot space, icicle-like fixtures hang from the 22-foot ceiling, illuminating the chocolate concrete floors and exposed brick.
Floor to ceiling warehouse windows create the backdrop for this hip yet understated environment. Outdoor dining offers a grassy view of the Piedmont Park conservatory and downtown skyline.
Executive chef Kevin Reilly, late of Zoë in New York’s SoHo district offers a menu that relies heavily on the restaurant’s wood-fired oven. Small plates ($5-$11) include wood-roasted mussels, blue crab fritters and barbequed lamb ribs.
Entrees ($14-$18) include chargrilled rare yellowtail served with a roasted grapefruit, asian pear and fennel salad,grilled lemon and herb marinated chicken, and chargrilled skirt steak served with parmesan-herb fries. One Midtown Kitchen, 559 Dutch Valley Road, (404)-892-4111 or onemidtownkitchen.com.

I’m proud of the line because it’s an accurate representation of me rather than me putting on someone else’s clothes,” says @atlantabean of her swimwear collaboration with @piaarrobio, LPA X ATL. The two decided on a swimwear collab and increased the industry standard size for the pieces. Read more about the line — and our interview with de Cadenet Taylor and Arrobio — on WWD.com #wwdfashion
