Kevin Rathbun is rolling out a new restaurant. The acclaimed chef plans to open KR SteakBar in the ADAC West building in Peachtree Hills. Not just for shoppers at the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center showrooms, this restaurant will feature a menu of “small plate steaks meets Italian fare” according to the website (linked above).
I’m not sure what a “small plates steak” is, but I’m intrigued. I love the thought of ordering a few bites of beautiful beef without committing to a monster porterhouse.
Rathbun’s partners in the new space will be the same folks who team with him at his flagship restaurant and Kevin Rathbun Steak — manager Cliff Bramble, pastry chef Kirk Parks and Rathbun’s wife, Melissa Rathbun.
Johnson Studio will design the restaurant, which is slated for a late summer 2012 opening.
