JP Atlanta Resurrects Fine Dining Experience in Downtown Atlanta Landmark

The name John C. Portman, Jr. has been synonymous with Atlanta’s cosmopolitan flair since the visionary first put his stamp on the cityscape in the 1960s. This December, Portman continues his legacy of transforming downtown with the opening of JP Atlanta, a luxury dining experience in central city landmark 230 Peachtree. Almost 50 years ago, the celebrated Midnight Sun opened in Peachtree Center under Portman’s watch. The sophisticated restaurant elevated the mid-century standard for Atlanta fine dining with its haute Danish cuisine and dramatic design. JP Atlanta brings a modern interpretation of the Midnight Sun experience to another Atlanta icon undergoing a resurgence. 230 Peachtree, the building Portman designed and developed as part of the Peachtree Center complex in 1965, is being reborn under the direction of John Portman & Associates as an adaptive reuse development that will house JP Atlanta, Hotel Indigo and office space. Anticipate attentive service and tremendous execution of new American cuisine, be it for business breakfasts, quick lunches, world-class dinners or late night cocktails and nibbles. Remember we’re talking Portman. Exquisite design is a given. Photo credit: (c) HBA
