Two ATL restaurant power couples ponder new ventures

ATL Food Chatter June 26, 2009In the year that foodinistas chirped about Atlanta’s “pizza wars” (spurred by the opening of Varasano’s and a new Italian pizzaiolo at Fritti), here’s an intriguing possible addition to the mix: Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison are considering the possibility of a pizza spot in the White Provisions building, where their latest restaurant, Abattoir, resides. After a cooking demonstration at Morningside Farmers Market last weekend, Quatrano mentioned that there is a space in White Provisions that is “calling our name.” And though no lease is signed yet, they’ve also been pricing Italian pizza ovens.

Anne Quatrano dishes about Abattoir and the future

Anne Quatrano is the talented chef behind Bacchanalia, widely considered Atlanta’s best restaurant. In late May, she and her husband, fellow toque Clifford Harrison, added Abattoir to their small local empire (they also own Quinones at Bacchanalia, an intimate restaurant-within-a-restaurant; the adjoining gourmet market Star Provisions; and Floataway Cafe in Virginia-Highland). Instead of $75 prix-fixe menus a la Bacchanalia, the new spot features rustic dishes meant for sharing, and many cost less than $10.

Abattoir meats its public

ATL Food Chatter: May 22, 2009Abattoir, the highly anticipated opening of Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison’s homage to “locally-raised proteins” opened last night, Thursday, May 21. Thanks to Quatrano and PR maven Mary Reynolds, I got a sneak peek on Wednesday night and I was blown away! From the china to the lettering on the back of the bar stools, there is clear attention to whimsical details in this intimate space.
