After hosting a series of dynamic culinary pop-up experiences this summer, Atlas and The Garden Room are set to officially reopen for full service, with The Garden Room returning today, Wednesday, Aug. 16, and Atlas returning on Thursday, Aug. 17. Both restaurants pushed their creativity and hosted temporary pop-ups including The Choux Box, a very successful dessert pastry boutique as well as the Atlas Underground dining experience in June, July, and early August as the kitchen underwent a refresh. Now both restaurants are returning, just in time for the city’s Michelin Guide buzz, with fully reimagined menus, offering the same elegance and impeccable quality that Atlas and The Garden Room are known for but with new inspiration after Chef Freddy Money’s extensive travels abroad, event participation around the world and lots of research and development throughout the summer.
This reopening will serve as the beginning of a new phase for both restaurants, led by Chef Freddy, Tavistock’s Atlanta Culinary Director. Born and raised in London, England, Chef Freddy began cooking at the age of 16 and went on to develop his culinary skills training in several of the world’s finest Michelin Star-awarded restaurants, including Paco Roncero, El Bulli Catering in Spain and The United Kingdom’s Alain Ducasse Group.
Joining Atlas and The Garden Room in 2019, Chef Freddy quickly took both highly revered Atlanta restaurants to new heights, offering visually stunning dishes with bold and complex flavors. Now, after extensive travels abroad this summer, gathering inspiration, and conducting research and development, Chef is relaunching both restaurants with a realized vision.
“I, and the Atlas team, spent an extensive amount of time redeveloping the cuisine for both restaurants,” said Chef Freddy. “We worked meticulously, creating, and refining several dishes before we selected the final menus. After spending several weeks working on them, we know beyond a doubt that we’ve created something that our guests, new and returning, will love.”
Atlas guests can expect a modern avant-garde approach with a tasting menu that evolves through the seasons. Dishes include Kristal Caviar, Westholme Wagyu, and the signature Chocolate Rocher. The tasting menus will also include wine pairings from Atlas’s esteemed wine cellar. The Atlas Tavern will also feature an a la carte menu, with selected items from the tasting menu.
The Garden Room will offer a 2-course and 3-course prix-fixe menu, with a la carte options also available in the bar area. The menu features incredible dishes like crispy duck salad, Chilean seabass, lobster gratin, prime rib and Yorkshire pudding.

With a Kitchen Remodel Underway, Atlas + The Garden Room Offer Unique Summer Spins for the Next Seven Weeks
Reservations Are Now Open, Don’t Miss These Limited Time Experiences

Atlas and The Garden Room are taking guests to places they haven’t been before for a limited time only. Both restaurants have created a set of unique dining experiences for guests to enjoy through July and early August. This summer, Atlas guests are invited to go underground with Atlas Underground in the Maisonette Room of the St. Regis Buckhead, enjoy exclusive libations in Atlas Tavern (the bar area of the restaurant), and delight in decadent pastries in a whole new way in the Choux Box aka Papillion Room (Private Dining Room of Atlas). The Garden Room has also introduced its Summer Staycation Pop-Up Series, a series of rotating culinary experiences featuring elevated takes on comfort food.
“What do you do when your kitchen needs a refresh, and you have two restaurants to run? You get creative, you improvise, and you find ways to innovate while you renovate,” explained Atlas + The Garden Room Culinary Director Freddy Money. “We’ve rolled out a variety of unique, one-time-only dining offerings that offer an impeccable experience while tapping into the lightness of summer and fun vacation/staycation vibes.”
Here are more details on all the ways you can dine with Tavistock Atlanta’s offerings this summer, before each experience ends:
ATLAS Underground + The Tavern at Atlas:
Located in the Maisonette Room of the St. Regis Buckhead, Atlas Underground takes the Atlas culinary experience to new heights (or, more fittingly, exciting lows). The experience takes guests on a gastronomic adventure highlighting powerful flavors, textures, and the freshest ingredients. Atlas Underground features the restaurant’s acclaimed Chef’s Tasting Menu, along with three-tiered wine pairings from its renowned cellar. Guests of Atlas Underground may enter through the Maisonette front entrance located to the right of the hotel valet as they arrive, or they may enter from the hotel lobby, by using the hallway to the right of the Salon. Reservations are limited for Atlas Underground and are available Wednesday – Saturday, 6:00 –10:00 p.m.
The Tavern at Atlas is the bar area in the front of the Atlas dining room.

Reservations for the Tavern are available Wednesday – Thursday 5:00 – 10:00 p.m. and Friday – Saturday 5:00 – 11:00 p.m.
The Garden Room:
The Garden Room is giving guests a taste of vacation with its Summer Staycation Pop-Up Series. Complimenting the relaxed vibe the summer weather brings, each exclusive experience will generate a buzz that guests won’t want to miss. The Summer Staycation Pop-Up Series will feature three distinct culinary experiences, all focused on guilty pleasures. While the dishes take inspiration from American comfort food classics, the series also emphasizes innovative cocktails and sommelier selections. The June pop-up is already underway and features the theme “Burger & Lobster,” and features an array of indulgent plates, including the Hamptons Delux, a lobster roll featuring butter-poached lobster, remoulade, celery, chives and lemon zest on a toasted Parker house roll, and the Savage Burger, featuring a Westholme beef patty topped with seared foie gras, bacon, Swiss cheese, lettuce, and truffle mayo. The July and August pop-ups will feature more fun and delicious summer menu items that leave guests wanting more. Reservations for each Summer Staycation Series pop-up are available Wednesday – Thursday 5:00 – 10:00 p.m. and Friday – Saturday 5:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Choux Box in the Papillion Room at Atlas:
The Papillion Room at Atlas has transformed into a boutique pop-up experience for the summer months called Choux Box. This unique pastry concept was created by Atlas Executive Chef Freddy Money and Pastry Chef Eric Snow, and focuses on an innovative approach to pastry, using only the finest ingredients to create unique flavor combinations that delight the senses. Each pastry is carefully crafted to taste incredible while exuding a sense of luxury and elegance, making it a delectable masterpiece.
