Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) September 11, 2012
Atlanta’s most established culinary teams and anticipated newcomers are turning to ai3, Inc. to design the region’s next wave of dining hotspots. ai3, Inc., an award-winning multi-disciplinary design studio, has been chosen as the design partner for new projects from the owners of Muss & Turner’s and Chef Mel Toledo as well as a highly-anticipated tavern and lounge in Druid Hills. La Tagliatella, a global Italian restaurant concept popular in Europe, which has selected Atlanta for its first two U.S. locations, is also partnering with ai3 for design.
“The density and range of culinary talent in Atlanta is astounding, and is only getting more creative and diverse. Each one of our clients has a distinct vision, but there is one common thread. The lines between food, service and design are becoming more and more blurred. I think that’s played a big role in putting Atlanta at the epicenter of dining in the U.S.,” said Lucy Aiken Johnson, ASID and partner at ai3.
More than ever before, ai3 is seeing a strong interest from chefs and restaurant owners in new interpretations of southern fare and hospitality.
Dan Maas, AIA – also a partner at ai3 – comments: “The farmhouse-inspired aesthetic – the one so many people associate with the New South – has been done well here. What we’re seeing now is that chefs want to explore new interpretations of Southern perspective. What other inspirations can we draw from? Or, how can we take a global brand and make it feel at home here in Atlanta? The designs that accompany these visions and challenges are becoming more personal and more ambitious.”
ai3’s current restaurant projects include:
