Atlanta Chef Richard Blais Opening "Juniper & Ivy" in February

looks interesting...will be based at Juniper and Ivy in 'Northern' Little Italy (I guess somewhere in the vicinity of Ballast Point. Guy is known as the 'liquid nitrogen and molecular gastronomy chef'.

      1. Tableside nitrogen cocktails!

        Move over, Denver.

        1. Little Italy is seeing so much change lately. Will be interesting to see how Blais's new restaurant holds up.

          1. Personally, I'm excited to see this open. Blais was one of my favorites when I watched Top Chef (before it jumped the proverbial shark). While I think molecular gastronomy can be fun, I hope it's not the focus of this new restaurant.

              1. re: Dagney

                Yes, but I'd put him more in more of the Voltaggio group of Top Chefs than the Malarkey group
