A new dining concept coming soon to the Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead


The Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead plans to debut a new dining concept this summer.

Trade Root, a Mediterranean inspired restaurant and bar, will replace the current restaurant, The Café, and adjacent Lobby Lounge. Its  menu will feature dishes with a Mediterranean heritage "plated with a distinctly Southern flavor."

The new dining destination has been designed by Wimberley Interiors.

“We are excited to bring a new dining experience to Buckhead,” General Manager Erwin Schinnerl said in a statement. “We know that Trade Root will be a place for our guests to enjoy gathering and creating new memories, and we look forward to this new chapter for our hotel and community.”

The Café will be open through this Sunday and  The Lobby Lounge will be open through Feb. 19. During the renovation process, the hotel's Gallery, a private events space near the main ballroom, will be temporarily reconfigured to serve dining guests, as well as afternoon tea and Sunday brunch. Additionally, seating will be added to the lobby area to accommodate guests in the interim.

As part of the renovation, the hotel's wine bar area, located near The Café and Lobby Lounge, will become a new events space branded as The Legacy Ballroom.

Finally, the elegant jewel one floor up once known as the storied Dining Room will be rechristened The Founders Room.
