New Restaurant Located in the Shops Around Lenox Features Craft Food and Drink

Chef Drew Van Leuvan plans to open Seven Lamps, a new restaurant with a focus on craft food and drinks, in December. Located 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.

“I’m looking forward to bringing a new establishment to Atlanta’s ever-changing restaurant and bar community,” said Van Leuvan. “I’d like to create an environment where guests can relax and share a sense of conviviality.”

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.

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.
