Saltwood opened yesterday at the Loews Hotel in Midtown. Replacing Eleven, the Southern spot aims to be “a more casual, neighborhood option” with a focus on charcuterie, says Michael Kochie, director of sales and marketing at the Loews. It will serve three meals a day, plus weekend brunch, and feature small plates made with local ingredients.
Don’t want to cook? Here are 23 restaurants open on Christmas Eve and/or Christmas this year. From quick and casual to prix fixe and reservations-only, here’s where to eat as you celebrate the holidays.
This just in: The flagship restaurant of the new Loews Atlanta hotel, opening April 1, was previously announced as Jasmine’s, but the owners have rechristened it Eleven—an obvious nod to the hotel’s street address, 1100 Spring Street. The hotel has also hired an executive chef, Olivier Gaupin. According to a profile on Naymz.com, Gaupin was educated in Orleans, France, and has a long history of working in some of the fancier hotels and resorts around the U.S.—including a stint in the kitchen at the Dining Room at the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead from 1997 to 1999 (which put him squarely in the middle of Guenter Seeger’s exit as the restaurant’s executive chef and Joel Antunes’ entrance). His most recent job has been as director of food and beverage/executive chef at Alys Beach Resort in Florida.
