Atlanta Orders In: The Chastain a dynamic addition to Buckhead area
New American bistro offers baked goods by day, fine dining by night
“Everything is interconnected,” said Christopher Grossman, executive chef and operating partner at the Chastain, a new daytime cafe and evening bistro that overlooks its namesake Chastain Park in Buckhead.
Grossman was referring to the spaces that seamlessly make up the renovated property (former home to Horseradish Grill), lending it what Grossman called a “park-like, community feel.” There’s the main building, with both bar and dining room surrounded by woods and streaming with natural light. An expansive patio features a tented, heated dining section, plus a fire pit and a cluster of socially distanced tables and chairs opposite a long wooden bench. And, there’s the vegetable garden, tops on Grossman’s list for what he called his “dream restaurant.”
