Saints and Council, the new restaurant from William Pitts, the former CEO of popular Atlanta restaurant Cafe Intermezzo, will debut Dec. 10 in Midtown mixed-use development Colony Square.

Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, Saints and Council will “offer a curated dining experience allowing guests to break free from the traditional restaurant visit by eliminating the concepts of single servers per table, time constraints and rigid seating assignments,” according to a press release.

Guests will be able to move between indoor and outdoor tables and seating areas, scanning digital tiles to view menus and order on their phones, with their orders served wherever they’re located in the restaurant.

Developed by executive chef Carter Vaughn, the seasonal menu will feature dishes made with locally-sourced ingredients. Breakfast dishes will include bruleed brioche French toast and Saints sweet potato and chicken sausage hash. Lunch options will include a variety of soups, salads, sandwiches, shared plates and entrees, including the Alderman Burger with mushroom, whiskey, candied garlic aioli, tobacco onions and fontina on brioche, and a dish of tahini roasted cauliflower.

During dinner, look for small plates like crispy apricot glazed pork belly and roasted winter squash toast, salads, sides and desserts, plus entrees including cast iron-seared yellowfin tuna with eggplant, harissa, labneh, mushroom, thin beans and radishes.

Each menu will also feature sweet and savory Dutch Babies, a German egg pancake that rises in the oven to form crispy edges and are Pitts’ favorite dish. A savory version will include bacon, barbecue butter, hot sauce, caramelized onion, arugula and charred lemon, while the sweet baked apple crumble dutch is made with twice baked apple, pecan streusel & vanilla ice cream.

The beverage program, led by Madison Tolman, will offer cocktails (including zero-proof versions), craft beers and a selection of wines. A coffee program will feature coffee and espresso drinks and “creative” hot chocolates.

The over 6,000-square-foot space will have a “comfortable nostalgia” aesthetic, according to Pitts, with design elements including “dark charcoal walls, modern brass fixtures and reclaimed wood beams on vaulted ceilings.”

Seating options will include a central island bar with small peninsulas in the dining room, rounded booths, tables and six living room pods (two around a stone fireplace), an outdoor pergola with a fire pit, booths with heaters and individually heated seat cushions.
