The holiday season offers more to rejoice! Chef Drew Van Leuvan plans to open Seven Lamps, a new restaurant with a focus on craft food and drinks, in December. Located at 3400 Around Lenox Road in the Shops Around Lenox, the restaurant offers lunch, dinner and a late night menu daily. Seven Lamps will also offer brunch service in the near future.
The Seven Lamps menu offers a variety of regionally influenced dishes featuring seasonal ingredients prepared with deft care. Menus change regularly depending on the availability of ingredients and season. The dinner menu has the following categories: Iced Oysters on the Half Shell; Savouries; Handmade Pastas; Artisan Cheese and Salted, Cured & Whipped. Examples of Handmade Pastas include tortellini stuffed with chestnut and mascarpone, with vanilla macaroon, apple leather and pecorino and tagliatelle with Sapelo Island clams, andouille, jalapeño, soffrito and pecorino.
The dinner menu also offers Small Plates and Plates, ranging from a baked Ellijay apple with roasted mushrooms, goat cheese soufflé and sherry caramel to a wood-grilled chicken breast with black gnocchi, black trumpet mushrooms, pancetta and pickled roots.
In addition to a selection of similar dishes from the dinner menu, the lunch menu includes a selection of Soups and Salads and Sammies (sandwiches), such as a corned beef brisket sandwich with kimchee slaw and basil on a pretzel roll and Dungeness crab salad with roasted carrots, shaved turnips, chocolate and grapefruit sorbet. The “After Hours” menu features a selection of dishes from the lunch and dinner menus.
The cocktail menu features an assortment of creative cocktails, boutique and value-driven wines and craft beers, focusing on fun, approachable drinks to perfectly complement Van Leuvan’s cuisine.
The coffee program is also diverse, offering drinks crafted using Batdorf & Bronson products and Intelligentsia teas. For guests looking to supplement their morning beverage, breakfast pastries are available Monday through Saturday beginning at 9 a.m. Breakfast pastries include sweet and savory croissants such as ham and cheese, chocolate and stone fruit.
ASD is designing the 114-seat space using a light color palette and reclaimed wood from a North Georgia mill to create a comfortable and inviting atmosphere. Plans also include an open kitchen where up to 10 diners can enjoy an intimate “Chef’s Table” experience. Another unique design element is the tranquil patio area which offers outdoor courtyard dining. Equipped with a fire pit, herb garden and Adirondack chairs for lounging, the space is an oasis in the heart of Buckhead.
