Saltwood, located inside the Loews Atlanta Hotel, is Midtown’s newest small-plate-style restaurant. Named for its emphasis on salted, cured meats and classically rustic presentation on wood blocks, this casual eatery features a charcuterie station that serves as the restaurant’s centerpiece. Diners can pull up bar stools to sample house-made and locally sourced items and sip on handcrafted cocktails and local microbrews while watching the restaurant’s charcuterie chef hand-carve meats and assemble charcuterie plates.
Executive chef Olivier Gaupin, a native of Orleans, France, borrows both from his European roots and a decade living in the American South, to bring a unique yet refined approach to local ingredients and cooking traditions.
The 190-seat Saltwood, which includes the bar, restaurant, 20-seat patio, 125-seat private dining space, and chef’s table, means diners can create their own unique experiences from intimate dinners for two to social gatherings around communal tables.
For an authentic taste and feel of the Midtown Atlanta lifestyle, Saltwood is the place to be.
