1920s-inspired restaurant The Select coming to Sandy Springs next month

A new restaurant from the team behind Paces & Vine in Vinings is set to open next month in the City Springs development in Sandy Springs.

The Select, a 1920s-inspired restaurant and bar, will feature “a range of eclectic entrees and small plates inspired by American and European cuisine,” according to a press release.

The Select pays homage to Paris’ Le Select brasserie—a gathering spot for artists and authors including Picasso, Hemingway and Fitzgerald.

Executive chef Matt Rainey’s menu will include daily dinner and late-night small plates “that blur the lines of culinary traditions across Continental Europe and America.” Weekend brunch and lunch hours will be added after the restaurant opens. The restaurant will also host live music nights beginning at the end of dinner hour into the late evening. 

A Georgia native, Rainey has overseen kitchens at several Florida restaurants and also worked in Washington, D.C.

The restaurant’s beverage program will offer 60 bottles and more than 30 options of wine by the glass, with selections from France, Italy, Australia and America. Also expect to see rotating seasonal cocktails and local beer on draft.

Designed by Smith Hanes Studio, The Select’s space will feature an “inviting and warm interior mixing intimate seating with classic design elements.” Look for an indoor/outdoor patio enclosed by glass with a terrace. The dining room will seat 75 guests and will be available for private and semi-private events.

The Select will be open for dinner 5-10 p.m. Monday-Sunday; late night hours from 10 p.m.-2 p.m. Friday-Saturday; and for weekend brunch from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday-Sunday. 

The Select will join several other restaurants in the City Springs development including Flower Child, Nam Kitchen and Cafe Vendome.
