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.
In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
