10 metro Atlanta restaurants we can’t wait to see open in 2022

Summerhill: Unnamed Duane Nutter restaurant.

Duane Nutter has done big things since leaving Atlanta — and acclaimed Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport restaurant One Flew South — several years ago to open Southern National in Mobile, Alabama. The restaurant was recently recognized by The New York Times, and Nutter was named a James Beard Award semifinalist for best regional chef. Now, Nutter is returning to Atlanta, along with restaurateur Reggie Washington, to open an as-yet-unnamed restaurant in the booming Summerhill neighborhood (other concepts set to open in the area by the end of the year include How Crispy Express, Redacted, D Boca N Boca and Press Start). Details are scarce for now, but expect to find a restaurant that’s “upscale but a place where everybody’s welcome,” according to Washington. The restaurant will be located at 72 Georgia Avenue in Summerhill.
