Bistro Niko, one of two new concepts scheduled to open this fall from Buckhead Life Restaurants, is scheduled to open to the public on November 5.

Originally to be called Balon Rouge, the restaurant is named after Buckhead Life founder Pano Karatassos’ son, Niko, and will have Gary Donlick at the kitchen’s helm as chef. Donlick was the chef at Pano’s & Paul’s before it closed after 30 years of business earlier this year.

No word yet on if the concept, which was to be a stylish brasserie in the Sovereign Building at 3344 Peachtree Road, has changed as well.  And no opening date yet for  Pano’s, part of the St. Regis Atlanta at 88 W. Paces Ferry Road, and touting a menu and ambiance that is “a little more high-end,” according to Karatassaos,  Sr.

The ambiance of Bistro Niko is fantastic, very conducive for conversation and most relaxing. The service and the food was absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion. Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy this Buckhead Life
Restaurant as it truly is something special.
