Xhibit Studio Kitchen & Bar will be the all-day, in-house restaurant for Canopy Atlanta Midtown hotel at 1414 West Peachtree St. NW. The menu, created by chef Christian Messier, will feature a rotating selection of seasonal local picks made with locally-sourced meat, bread and produce. Expect small bites, roasted vegetables, seafood, dairy and baked goods from Atlanta's H+F Bread Co.
"Our focus here at Xhibit is on the unique needs of our guests," said Messier in a press release. "We're creating a fresh and local approach with food, something you don't necessarily find often in hotels."
Messier previously worked at the Phoenician resort in Scottsdale, Ariz. and the Renaissance St. Louis Grand Hotel, as well as Atlanta's Sun Dial restaurant. He also worked for four years as the culinary director and corporate chef of Taco Mac's 29 locations.
The restaurant's decor will feature pieces from local artists including a series of stacked canvases by Atlanta-based Emily Mann. Other design elements include tiled floors, oversized domed lighting and an L-shaped bar covered in white granite.
The 3350 sq. foot restaurant space will serve to-go items such as pastries and quiches, as well as coffees from Smyrna-based Rev Coffee during the day.
The 15-story Canopy Atlanta Midtown, a Hilton property, will have 176 guest rooms and four suites when it opens.
