Notable dining options further complement Phipps Plaza’s multi-phase transformation

Foodies can anticipate more flavor this fall at Phipps Plaza, the Southeast’s top luxury shopping destination located in the heart of Atlanta’s fashionable Buckhead district. Management announced today the addition of two first-to-market dining options, Daniel Reed’s Public Kitchen & Bar and Earl of Sandwich, as well as the third location of an Atlanta culinary favorite, Ecco.

As a major component of Phipps Plaza’s renovation project, Daniel Reed’s Public Kitchen & Bar will join the center’s new Peachtree Road entrance in fall 2017. Recently unveiled in March of this year, the entrance has been transformed to be an elegant façade of storefronts representing some of the coveted brands that call Phipps Plaza home, including Jeffrey, Versace, Tiffany & Co., Giorgio Armani, BOSS Hugo Boss and Bottega Veneta.

Derived from its wildly popular flagship in Savannah, Daniel Reed’s Public Kitchen & Bar will serve fresh American cuisine in an approachable, relaxed atmosphere while providing true Southern hospitality to Atlanta patrons. A concept by Daniel Reed Hospitality, the restaurant is a mid-century-inspired, upscale casual eatery with quality, farm-to-table offerings. The menu will evolve with the trends of the season, creating a unique experience for Phipps Plaza and its guests.

Earl of Sandwich, a globally-recognized, fast casual sandwich establishment that boasts the freshest upscale ingredients, is set to introduce the ‘World’s Greatest Hot Sandwich®’ to Atlanta at Phipps Plaza in October. Located on the second level near Belk, the new location will feature an energetic and modern design, and a menu offering sandwiches, hand-crafted wraps, fresh salads, artisan soups and freshly baked dessert treats made in-house daily.

Scheduled to open in 2017, Ecco’s Buckhead location will occupy a new free-standing building outside Phipps Plaza at the corner of Peachtree and Wieuca Roads. The new location will continue the concept’s tradition of seasonal European cuisine with cosmopolitan flair. Similar to the Midtown location, the Buckhead outpost will boast inspired and locally sourced European small plates and entrees, a stylish atmosphere and an award-winning wine list.

“Phipps Plaza has always been a dynamic gathering spot for the Atlanta community,” said Eric Howard, general manager of Phipps Plaza. “Now with these highly anticipated restaurants, we’re enhancing the overall dining scene, and Atlantans will continue to discover something new each time they visit Phipps Plaza.”

Arbiter of style and acclaimed retailer Jeffrey Kalinsky kicked off Atlanta’s fall social season on a stylish note at the 24th Annual Jeffrey Fashion Cares on Monday, August 29, 2016. One of the largest combined AIDS and breast cancer benefits in the country; the philanthropic affair featured a pre-show cocktail reception, silent and live auction, and a dazzling runway show – giving fashion lovers an intimate look at Fall’s hottest runway trends.  For the second year in a row, Jeffrey Fashion Cares returned to the recently renovated Phipps Plaza in the heart of Buckhead where attendees slipped into a completely transformed and private environment in the Monarch Court as Kalinsky and his team once again embarked on their mission to raise as much awareness and funds as possible for the event’s beneficiaries, Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta and the Atlanta AIDS Fund (AAF).


For 2016, Kalinsky once again joined Event Chairs Lila Hertz, Jeffrey McQuithy and Louise Sams in producing an unforgettable evening for Atlanta’s most stylish.  Attendees mixed and mingled at pre-show cocktail reception while they bid on an array of luxury items including timeless jewelry, watches, and must-have handbags. After guests took their seats, a high-energy live auction featuring once in a lifetime experiences led up to a stunning runway show featuring Kalinsky’s style selections from high-end designers such as Lanvin, Celine, Christian Dior, Givenchy, Gucci, Valentino, Dries van Noten, Saint Laurent Paris, Balenciaga, Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik.   Last year’s sold-out event raised $700,000 for Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta and the Atlanta AIDS Fund (AAF).

Fall 2016 will be an over the top season, literally. From New York, London, Paris and Milan, we are bringing you an oversized, puffed up, perfect selection to lift your look for autumn. We have the biggest trends of the season, suitable for every occasion.

We’re showcasing cashmere, leather, glossy brocades, and liquid silks–producing silhouettes that reflect a powerful, yet refined attitude. Fall will be portrayed through a monochromatic palette with color blocks to set the mood; including lemon yellow, royal blue, and shades of red.

Elegance is an attitude as well as an appearance. This year, however, the theme mirrors more casual lifestyles, relevant for today’s busy women. The selection has been carefully chosen from our favorite designers of the coming season.

The basic look will be an oversized street style. It will be highlighted by designers Vetements and Marques Almeida. We continue to see the exaggeration in fit and tailoring to complement the puffiness of this comfortable trend.

Along with this new image, we have a found a velvet goldmine, showcased by designers using this rich fabric as a revival of a revered fabric chosen by royalty.

Celine impresses us with wearable garments, conceptual shapes, tunics worn over flared pants, with variations of outerwear as well. Brandon Maxwell empowers women with striking sexy, sculpted silhouettes that accent today’s evening wear.

Our key elements of oversizing are seen in parkas, capes, bomber jackets, furs and shearlings for a splendid season this fall.
