Aria has ditched its stark white-on-white color scheme. Chef Gerry Klaskala is also testing out a new menu format, eschewing appetizer, entree, and dessert sections for vegetables, meat, and seafood.
This month marks 20 years of riverfront dining at Canoe, the beloved Vinings restaurant that opened in 1995 under the direction of chef Gerry Klaskala and business partners Ron San Martin and George McKerrow (who is also the founder of LongHorn Steakhouse and Ted’s Montana Grill).
Gerry Klaskala discusses art, how Atlanta has changed, and the worst culinary trend he's seen in his 45-year career.

In addition to a $5 million design overhaul of the dining room—courtesy of the ubiquitous Johnson Studio—and an open kitchen whose consulting chef is Atlanta culinary icon Gerry Klaskala, Atlas boasts 23 museum-worthy paintings and drawings from one of the world’s foremost private art collections.
Under the keen eye of veteran restaurateur Gerry Klaskala (of Aria), who served as consulting chef to this modern beauty inside the St. Regis Atlanta Hotel, Atlas is off to an impressive start.

Atlas—the highly anticipated restaurant backed by consulting chef Gerry Klaskala and investor the Tavistock Group—will open January 26 in the St. Regis Hotel. Replacing Paces 88, Atlas will offer a classic American menu with European influences and a seasonal focus. Christopher Grossman, previously of the French Laundry, is the chef de cuisine.
