BY GEORGE RESTAURANT AND BAR
A SNIPPET FROM THE BY GEORGE WEBSITE
In 1905, Asa Candler—the founder of Coca-Cola—hired two architects to design and construct a landmark building on Peachtree Street in downtown Atlanta. The work of those architects, George Stewart and George E. Murphy, will reopen in summer of 2019 as The Candler Hotel, and its restoration represents a homecoming to Beaux Arts refinement in the very heart of the city. An outward-facing restaurant—named By George in honor of the duo that crafted its space—will be the hotel’s destination dining room.
By George will be open throughout the day, and it will offer a pure, classic cuisine—largely influenced by Contemporary American cooking. To match Acheson’s food will be an extensive wine program helmed by accomplished sommelier Steven Grubbs and keen cocktails from the talented hands of Kellie Thorn.
