A New Den of Seduction in Buckhead
You’ve got your go-to spots.
Coffee at Highland Bakery. Power lunches at Bones. Power cougar hunting at Johnny’s.
But when it comes to the never-ending quest for that perfect date spot, a little experimentation can pay
Especially when it happens to involve centuries of spiritual and sexual enlightenment...
, your new ace in the hole for refined seduction by way of saffron chocolate
truffles and aphrodisiac cocktails, soft-opening Sunday night in Buckhead.
If Hugh Hefner’s smoking jacket got in touch with its spiritual side and decided to become a restaurant,
it would probably look a
lot like this place
—row after row of red suede banquettes, dramatic chandeliers presiding over beaded
curtains and ancient tantric symbols discreetly embedded around every corner.
You and your date will want to stop off at the bar first (yes, there’s a Buddha statue involved) for some
Tempura Mushroom Arancini
and one of nine champagne-based cocktails like the Gabriella
(champagne, Campari, vodka).
And when you’re finally ready to segue into the latter half of the evening, do so at a quiet table in the
back, where you’ll channel your collective... energies over Pomegranate Braised Beef Short Ribs
and Grilled Ostrich Pan Filets
We should also tell you that the liquor license may not be on the wall by Sunday, but once it is, you’ll
be able to cap things off with one of six Tantric Espressos
like the Italian Amante
shot of espresso graciously finished with another shot of sambuca and topped with alcohol-infused whipped
Somehow you knew whipped cream would be involved.
