The burgeoning dining destination on Georgia Avenue in Summerhill is getting a new restaurant. It will be helmed by Chef Duane Nutter, a 2020 James Beard finalist for Best Chef in the South, and partner Reginald Washington.
The two are the much-lauded partners behind the Mobile, Alabama-based Southern National, which was recently named to The New York Times‘ “Restaurant List,” as one of the 50 most exciting restaurants in America. A name has yet to be announced for the duo’s forthcoming restaurant, but it is set to open in summer 2022 at 70 Georgia Avenue.
The announcement comes from Carter, a leading national real estate investment and development firm headquartered in Atlanta.
“We’re honored that world-class operators like Chef Duane and Reggie have chosen to open in Summerhill,” Scott Taylor, president and CEO of Carter, said in a press release statement. “We’ve tried to make Summerhill Atlanta’s next great destination and having talent on this…level is indicative of the caliber of restaurants we’ve been able to attract. We believe Chef Duane and Reggie are more than partners in the project, they’re really partners in a vision; one that honors the past while building [the] future.”
The forthcoming restaurant will feature cuisine developed by Nutter, served in a friendly and approachable neighborhood gathering place that offers the highest-quality food and an elevated level of service.
