A hotel coming to Buckhead later this year will bring with it a new restaurant and bar.

The Burgess Hotel, from longtime hotel owners Burges and Freny Jokhi, is slated to open at 3600 Piedmont Road NE this fall.

The hotel’s food and beverage concepts, which will be curated by Apicii Hospitality Group, will include FIA, Woodfire Grill and Mr. B. Bar. Apicii has developed culinary concepts in New York City and Los Angeles.

Both the restaurant and bar “will evoke a neighborhood-gathering place,” according to a press release, with FIA offering a Mediterranean-inspired menu with a focus on wood-fired dishes. The concept will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, with seats for 68 guests.

Adjacent to the restaurant will be Mr. B., named in honor of Freny’s father Keki Bunshah, who organized the first Indian expedition to Mount Everest. Photographs from his climbing expeditions will adorn the lounge. Mr. B. will specialize in cocktails and spirits anchored by a 60-seat bar and lounge area, including a library and fireplace. FIA’s full menu will also be served at Mr. B.

Designed by Duncan Miller Ullman , a global hospitality interior firm, the $15 million renovation will feature 102 rooms, including a themed penthouse. The hotel also features a meeting space, fitness center and outdoor pool with food and beverage options.

The design will incorporate elements of the Jokhi family’s travels, as well as artwork from their daughter, Chicago-based Jessica.

Hospitality Ventures Management Group will operate the hotel.
