James Beard Award Winner Chef Scott Conant to Open The Americano in Atlanta

Following the success of the 2020 opening of its first location in  Scottsdale, Ariz., two-time James Beard Award-winning chef and restaurateur Chef Scott Conant announces the second location of The Americano coming to Atlanta in April 2022.  Located within the luxurious InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta – which is undergoing a  complete transformation – The Americano blends a European style of highly personalized 

service with contemporary Italian-inspired dining to create an exceptional and convivial  experience. 

“Atlanta is known for its unique culture and character, vibrant energy and booming culinary  scene, so choosing it as the next home for The Americano was a no-brainer,” says Conant.  “We are lucky to have this beautiful space at The Intercontinental Hotel. Buckhead is a major  hub for both business and tourism in Atlanta, so I am thrilled to have an opportunity to provide  an unparalleled dining experience to the city’s locals and visitors alike.” 

Similar to its Scottsdale counterpart, The Americano’s menu will feature a range of dishes, from fine steaks, including prime and American Wagyu beef, to house-made pasta,  organic salads, Italian antipasti and Mediterranean seafood. The restaurant will also  feature a bespoke café for coffee, handmade pastries and other delectable morning  treats. Conant’s culinary offering shares the spotlight with an inventive cocktail program that  is playful and intricately devised. The wine list at The Americano features 200 selections from  Italy and the United States, including landmark labels and emerging producers. 

“The Americano gives me an elevated, creative outlet to really hone in on a more refined style  of cooking, one that is a culmination of my travels,” says Conant. “Guests will recognize some  dishes that have helped define my career as well as many others in that same spirit of crave ability and refinement. When you arrive at The Americano, there’s an unmistakable energy  and I look forward to bringing that same excitement, precision and sincerity to the Atlanta menu.” 

Modern in approach and Italian in spirit, The Americano Atlanta is set to have a chic, moody  atmosphere that will complement the elevated ambience of Buckhead – one of the city’s most  prominent neighborhoods known for its upscale living, high-end shopping and fine dining.  Once open to the public, guests will be greeted by custom sculptural artwork, an island bar  area and lounge, a large outdoor dining patio and show-stopping lighting. Unique wire light  fixtures add a warm glow, while pops of green add a cool touch to the interior design. The  café also features al fresco seating on the cozy patio.  

“The Americano bridges the gap between the deliberate touch of alta cucina and the soul of cucina rustica,” says Conant. “In other words, guests will experience the top quality, distinctive  flavor profiles, stunning presentation and superior level of service of a high-end restaurant,  but with more approachability.”
