Debut at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta Sept. 30
Modern American Steak Restaurant and Classic Cocktail Bar & Lounge
Grow ‘La Dolce Vita’ in Buckhead

ATLANTA (Sept. 21, 2016) – American Cut, a modern American steak restaurant and its rooftop terrace bar The Regent Cocktail Club open Friday, Sept. 30, at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta. American Cut features signature interpretations on fine dining classics helmed by local Atlanta chef John Adamson. The Regent Cocktail Club pairs craft cocktails with striking views of the Atlanta skyline. Both concepts are owned by LDV Hospitality, with American Cut created in partnership with Marc Forgione.

"Our restaurants are known for their authenticity, quality and social buzz and are designed to be the epicenter of our communities. Buckhead friends and neighbors welcomed LDV Hospitality to Atlanta in 2014 and have grown to be our family. We are excited to continue to cultivate our presence in Atlanta with American Cut and The Regent Cocktail Club," said John Meadow, Founder and President of LDV Hospitality.

American Cut Buckhead offers a unique multi-level dining experience including a first level lounge and bar with a special bar menu and daily drink specials. The second level of the restaurant features a 102-seat main dining room alongside two private dining rooms where guests can enjoy an Atlanta-inspired signature menu for a more upscale and decadent dining experience. The menu combines bold flavors with unique style to create the restaurant’s take on American classics such as the house favorite chili lobster and the 40-oz. Tomahawk chop. A mix of tableside preparations, ranging from the plank-smoked old fashioned to the OG 1924 Caesar salad, create a theatrical and colorful interactive dining experience.

The Regent Cocktail Club redefines cocktail culture with an exceptionally talented group of passionate bartenders and mixologists and an exquisite approach to craft cocktails. The Regent Cocktail Club will offer a rotating specialty cocktail menu and an eclectic mix of live musical programming that caters to the true connoisseurs of cocktail culture. Inspired by the simplicity and elegance of the original Regent Cocktail Club in 1941, LDV Hospitality goes back to basics with the opening of The Regent Cocktail Club on the third level of American Cut Buckhead. The industrial 5,000 square foot, 75-seat space will be an indoor/outdoor rooftop terrace and bar featuring striking views of the Atlanta skyline.

American Cut Buckhead and The Regent Cocktail Club are located at 3035 Peachtree Road at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta. American Cut Buckhead serves dinner Sunday through Thursday from 5:30 to 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 12 a.m. The Regent Cocktail Club is open Sunday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m.

American Cut pays homage to the original and aspirational American dining experience- the steakhouse. In 2015, American Cut Tribeca was ranked #1 in the Fox News round-up of “Top 5 Steakhouses in America.” In 2013, Travel & Leisure awarded American Cut Tribeca as one of the “Best Steakhouses in the U.S.” The restaurant was also a finalist in the ‘International Best Designed Fine Dining Restaurant’ by Hospitality Design. American Cut Buckhead joins sister restaurants Dolce Italian and Corso Coffee, also located at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta.

At The Regent Cocktail Club, every classic cocktail tells a story. The Regent truly illustrates the art of the craft cocktail with a team of passionate bartenders who are empowered to showcase their talents through a rotating cocktail menu. In 2012, LDV launched the first The Regent Cocktail Club with great buzz in Miami Beach at the boutique Gale Hotel. In 2013, The Regent was recognized as one of the Top Ten Hotel Bars in the World at the ‘Tales of the Cocktail’ Awards in New Orleans. In the summer of 2015, LDV opened its second outpost in the Hamptons at the historic Gurney’s Resort and Spa in Montauk. Returning to the simplicity and elegance that surrounded the original Regent that opened in 1941, The Regent Cocktail Club joins Atlanta’s cocktail scene on the third level of American Cut Buckhead. The finishes to the space are industrial and raw yet come together in a refined fashion.  A mix of polished concrete floor and bar with Brazilian ipe wood walls, juxtaposed with an eclectic mix of mid-century modern living room style lounge groupings, and fully operable French doors with a stunning view of the Atlanta skyline, makes for an inviting ambiance ideal for groups to mingle and indulge in signature cocktails.
