Opening of 30 Tables on May 1

Concentrics Restaurants, in partnership with the Glenn Hotel and Legacy Property Group, is proud to announce the opening of its newest restaurant, 30 Tables, on Friday, May 1, in the heart of downtown Atlanta. The restaurant launch coincides with the introduction of the Glenn's signature rooftop space 11 Stories, which was re-designed under the direction of Concentrics Restaurants. For their second restaurant located in the burgeoning Luckie Marietta District, Atlanta's acclaimed restaurateurs Bob Amick and Todd Rushing welcome the partnership with the Glenn to forge an inspired destination perfect for business travelers, vacationers and locals alike. 30 Tables features American contemporary cuisine infused with sustainable and seasonal ingredients for breakfast, lunch and dinner and manages room services for hotel guests from a kitchen of Southern-influenced sophistication. Located on the roof of the Glenn Hotel, 11 Stories provides breathtaking panoramic views of the Atlanta skyline, masterfully handcrafted signature libations and flavorful small bites.

Chef Daniel Chance couples more than 15 years experience in the city's restaurant industry with innovative and youthful ideas that will infuse the food and atmosphere of the latest Concentrics Restaurants venture with energy. Chance began working at Concentrics Restaurants in 2003, and has contributed to the kitchens midtown kitchen, urban licks and TROIS. Prior to joining the Concentrics team, Chance worked with the Buckhead Life Group from 1996 to 2002. Wasting no time launching an impressive career, Chance rose to the position of sous chef with the Buckhead Life Group by age 20. Chance also spent time working on a commercial fishing boat in Kodiak, Alaska, during which time he learned much about seafood, helping guide him in purchasing top quality products. Referred to by mentor chefs as "The Sponge" because of how much information he absorbs about the food industry, Chance has established a career defined by relentless education and self improvement.

Chef Chance creates a menu of modern American fare highlighted by sustainable and seasonal ingredients that reflects the restaurant's Southeast influences and refined candor. For breakfast, lunch and dinner, the menu highlights the season's best ingredients simply prepared with vibrant flavors and textures. Fresh herbs are snipped daily from the 11 Stories rooftop garden, contributing an essence of freshness to each dish and greening the urban landscape.

Acclaimed design and architecture firm ASD adorns the 30 Tables space with deep wood, rich leather and earth tones that lend classic stylishness. The center of attention is the Glenn's lobby, where the lively bar welcomes neighbors and travelers with chocolate leather bar stools and a petrified wood backdrop to relax and savor seasonal hand-crafted cocktails and a variety of wines while enjoying 30 Tables menu offerings. In the front of the lobby along Marietta Street, tables constructed of cherry wood and surrounded by plush leather chairs seat guests in a comfortable and causal environment ideal for enjoying breakfast or light bites. Then in the dining room, shades of terra cotta lined with black Bettina wood mirrors and natural light from the many windows facing Downtown's Spring Street all illuminate the paramount communal space ­ a 17-foot gathering table. Brown leather-wrapped banquette seating winds along the dining room walls, where artwork sketched by young Swedish children in the 1940s is on display for all to see. Meanwhile, at 11 Stories, whether you are lounging at the outdoor bar, relaxing in comfortable soft seating or taking in the downtown Atlanta view amid swaying olive trees, visitors and locals alike can agree this is Atlanta's top rooftop gem.
