WELCOME (on the cover)
The study of this award-winning home in Buckhead was a collaboration between designer Betty Burgess and architect D. Stanley Dixon. Photographed by Erica George Dines on March 25, 2010.
nytime I go to the Florida Panhandle, I can’t help but smile when I see a large number of Georgia license plates in local parking lots. With so many cars from Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Cobb, Douglas and surrounding metro counties, I feel like I could be at the Buckhead Home Depot instead of somewhere along 30-A. In many ways, the Panhandle is—for Atlantans—what the Hamptons are to New Yorkers, what Lake Tahoe is to San Franciscans. From Pensacola to Apalachicola, the Panhandle is Atlanta’s home away from home. Because of the extended lead time required in publishing our magazine, I was hesitant to address the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in last month’s issue; I was certain it would be capped by now. But yet another production cycle has come and gone, and the problem persists. Let’s hope by the time you are reading this, the gusher has been plugged and clean-up eΩorts have intensiﬁed. In the meantime, there are miles of unspoiled beaches in Florida and they need tourists now more than ever. One website, healthybeaches.org, provides real-time information on the status of beaches across the state. Please go, visit and spend money. At some point, well-trained volunteers will be needed to help with clean-up eΩorts. When that time comes, I’m certain a number of Atlantans who vacation there and have second homes in the area will chip in to assist. After all, that’s what neighbors are for.

STYLE DESIGN DOSSIER
HUGH ACHESON With Empire State South, this laid-back Southern chef aims to create one of Atlanta’s most iconic restaurants, appealing to destination diners and neighborhood regulars alike
KATE ABNEY Ç
RACHEL CARDINA LASSERRE
HUGH ACHESON’S LATEST RESTAURANT, LOCATED AT 999 PEACHTREE IN MIDTOWN, IS A COLLABORATION BETWEEN THE SOUTHERN CHEF AND JAMESTOWN PROPERTIES CREATIVE DIRECTOR MICHAEL PHILLIPS—ONE OF THE BRIGHT MINDS BEHIND PROJECTS SUCH AS MANHATTAN’S CHELSEA MARKET AND ATLANTA’S OWN WESTSIDE PROVISIONS DISTRICT— THAT’S RESULTED IN THE ULTIMATE ATLANTA RESTAURANT ENDEAVOR. THE NAME, EMPIRE STATE SOUTH, WAS ADAPTED FROM A TERM COINED A CENTURY AGO TO PROMOTE GEORGIA AS A CENTER OF COMMERCE FOR THE SOUTHEAST. A GRILLED PIMENTO CHEESE SANDWICH WITH PICKLED OKRA, AT RIGHT, IS JUST ONE OF THE MANY DELECTABLE SOUTHERN DISHES ON THE MENU.
ATLANTAHOM ES MAG.COM
For Hugh Acheson’s induction to the local pantheon of cuisiniers, Atlantans have been waiting with bated breath. After all, countless among them regularly make the 70-mile trek to dine at his signature Athens Five & Ten, the eatery that put a remote college town on the culinary map. Since its debut in 2000, Acheson has risen to national acclaim, having racked up four James Beard Award nominations, a Food & Wine Best New Chef designation and opened two additional Athens establishments—Gosfard Wine in 2004 and The National in 2007. Later this month, he’ll open Empire State South, arguably the most anticipated Atlanta restaurant of the year. A loose translation of the meat-and-three, Empire State South will serve simple, straightforward Southern cuisine with a dash of European elán (a credit to Acheson’s formal training with French-centric chefs across the continent). Ingeniously, Acheson cuts through the heaviness of traditionally rich Southern dishes with bright acids, piquant chilis and the “bouncy,” fresh ﬂavors he’s made all his own. “We want to show people what great Southern food is. Atlanta has great old meat-and-threes like Busy Bee [Café] and Carver’s [Country Kitchen]...we wanted something with that same sensibility, but a little more gilded,” he notes. “Just great, simple, local food that’s done in a really healthy and modern way.” Acheson’s interpretation is outlined on a stylized menu that includes local Nature’s Harmony Farm pork chops smothered in chanterelle
gravy, zipper cream pea succotash and roasted half-chicken with boiled peanuts and salsa verde. Meanwhile, at the granite-topped board-and-batten bar, patrons can choose from a beguiling selection of small-batch bourbons, seasonally changing cocktails and the most comprehensive selection of Burgundies in the city. Acheson is maintaining his home base in Athens but keeping an apartment in Atlanta for now, appointing Chef de Cuisine Nick Melvin—recently plucked from Inman Park’s Parish Foods & Goods—to the helm in his absence. He’s also planning to host wine dinners, sponsor community events and support the pro-bono eΩorts of fellow 999 Peachtree tenants. But that’s not all that’s up this chef’s sleeve. In the fall of 2011, he’ll release a new cookbook, A New Turn in the South, featuring recipes from the Empire State South menu as well as his personal sentiments on new Southern cuisine. In the meantime, he’s just hoping to make really good Southern food— with minimal attitude. MY HOME REFLECTS… My commu-
nity in Athens and my family life with my wife, Mary, and our two daughters—Beatrice, who is 8, and Clementine, who is 6. I also have a nice Viking kitchen. MY SIGNATURE COLORS ARE… Pale blue and green; I’m not sure why. THE ONE THING I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT IS… A cast-iron frying pan.
Cast-iron pans age so well if you take care of them. MY FAVORITE MUSEUM IS… The Museum of Modern Art.

clockwise from top left Empire State South’s logo is at once antique-inspired and unequivocally modern. A trio of pickled veggies offers a cool contrast to bacon simmering in a cast-iron pan. The patio and bocce court may be easy to miss from the street, but that’s much of its allure. It’s the perfect spot to sip a cup of Counter Culture coffee and nosh on a tasty Benton ham-and-local arugula biscuit for breakfast. In the afternoon, Acheson envisions a game of bocce with friends, a crisp glass of Riesling or mint julep in hand. The evenings will play host to post event-goers, who will mingle beneath gas lanterns and the shimmer of Midtown’s soaring high-rises.

SOU∏HERN COMFOR∏S The interiors are the brainchild of Athens-based designers Lisa Fiscus, of Hawthorne House Interiors & Antiques, and Susan Hable Smith, co-founder of Brooklyn-born textile company Hable Construction. Together, they’ve devised an eco-friendly scheme of pecky cypress and reclaimed heart pine awash in inky blues, grays and greens. Smith has even designed a handsome Hable Construction stripe to adorn the antiqueinspired banquettes. Four dining zones suit every taste. For the formal set, the private dining room will be softly delineated by salvaged pocket doors and russet-colored walls while the coffee bar will serve a more casual crowd, offering a cozy “kissing nook,” in-house bakery items, additional treats from H&F Bread Co. and savory selections to-go. Seating for 85 inside and more than two-dozen in the outdoor spaces will accommodate a sizable ebb and ﬂow of diners throughout the day.

Fun In THE SUN Nestled between the lush vegetation and the beautiful white sands of Dover Beach, on the southern shore of Barbados, lies the Almond Casuarina Beach Resort. Because it’s situated on 10 acres of tropical gardens, this retreat—the ﬁfth in the Almond Resorts family—captures the essence of paradise by combining the natural splendor
of the tropics with the elegant sophistication often desired in an allinclusive vacation. On the leading edge of the company’s eco program, the Green Globe-certiﬁed property operates within its own ecosystem, maintaining the tropical forest and original vegetation to decrease its environmental impact. With a balcony in every room overlooking either the spectacular gardens or the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea, guests of all ages will be swept away by the spacious accommodations and the team of people waiting to assist in the making of a dream vacation. With three fresh-water swimming pools, tennis courts, a ﬁtness center, a destination spa, three restaurants, ﬁve bars and a gorgeous stretch of beach, the resort is mere steps away from the famous St. Lawrence Gap and a short ride to the capital city of Bridgetown, leaving guests with no shortage of activities and excursions. Whether planning a family vacation or a romantic retreat, travelers can leave the crowds in their wake and escape to luxury at this cool and comforting Caribbean paradise. –Brian Desarro

ing artist Wendy Martin opens at Pryor Fine Art this month. A Colorado native, Martin examines the relationship between humans and nature through large-scale works featuring animal and plant symbolism.

by Jeannette Montgomery Barron continues this month at Jackson Fine Art. The artist’s photos document couture pieces from her mother’s wardrobe contrasted against textiles signiﬁcant to her, such as a worn Persian rug or a tablecloth from a favorite restaurant. The project began as an exercise for her mother’s memory, when she—Atlanta socialite Eleanor Morgan Montgomery Atuk—was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Each photograph is paired with Montgomery Barron’s personal recollections. Through 8/27. (404) 2333739; jacksonﬁneart.com

From embroidery-embellished plastic bags of Vautier to the rubber latex sculptures by Grant, the exhibition highlights the misuse of plastic and petroleum products in culture. 8/6-9/4.

MUSEUMS The High Museum of Art
debuts the ﬁrst major exhibit to examine the last half of Salvador Dalí’s career with “Salvador Dalí: The Late Work.” Comprising more
than 40 paintings plus a related group of drawings and prints, the collection is a survey of the artist’s fascination with science, optical eΩects and illusionism as well as his connections with other famous artists and celebrities, such as Andy Warhol and Alice Cooper. Many of his late works, following his conversion to Catholicism in the 1940s, combine religious iconography with modern science. The highlight of the exhibit—and one of Dalí’s most famous images—is “Christ of St. John of the Cross,” which portrays a cruciﬁed Christ from a high angle looking down. 8/7-1/9. (404) 733-4444; high.org Opening later this month,
the Carlos Museum at Emory will host “Islamic Calligraphy and the Qur’an,” featuring more than 150 objects celebrating the esteemed Islamic art of calligraphy. “Traces of the Calligrapher: Islamic Calligraphy in Practice, c. 1600-1900” is a comprehensive overview of the practice of calligraphy from the 17th through the 19th centuries with objects from Iran, Turkey and India that exemplify ﬁne craftsmanship and exquisite design. “Writing the Word of God: Calligraphy and the Qur’an” is a selection of folios from now-dispersed Qur’ans from distinct cultural areas, ranging from Spain and North Africa to Iran. 8/28-12/5.
