“Atlanta is a market I’ve always wanted to enter. There are plenty of opportunities to focus and come to your restaurant,” he says.
Americano Atlanta resembles the original in both menu and design.
“I care, If it’s not broken, don’t fix it.. It’s a great Italian restaurant with great steak elements on the menu, “he says. “I didn’t want to limit myself to steak or Italian. It’s a mashup of both.”
Popular dishes include pasta alpomodoro, truffle porenta cremosa, hamachi crude, steamed wagyu beef and, of course, steak. “These are not classic Italian dishes, they are interpreted from the principles of Italian cuisine,” explains Conant. “The spirit of Italian cuisine has some soulfulness in cooking and some unique graceful hospitality.”
The restaurant will eventually offer a shortened version of the menu focused on lunch salads and a “traditional hotel breakfast” menu in an area of space known as the Morning Cafe.
In the evening, a condensed version of Scottsdale’s cocktail menu created by Chris Cuesta is available with 120 Italian and American wines, including at least 12 glass wines. We also offer carefully selected local beers and imported beers.
Modern sculptural art by Peter Deise and unique wire luminaires create a scene where you can relax in the crescent-shaped booth or interact at the butcher’s block table in the main room. On the patio, cushioned rattan chairs and stone-covered tables provide a comfortable place to enjoy the fresh air.
“I like to understand what makes customers happy,” says Conant.
He goes to restaurants this week and will move back and forth between other businesses in the future.
