Market fresh meals, sustainable food, farm to table…if these sound good to you, you’ll want to visit the Terrace Bistro, a standout choice in the downtown Atlanta dining scene. You’ll find this innovative eatery within the Ellis Hotel, a historic landmark on Peachtree Street. Hit the Terrace Bistro when you want something a little bit different — something that’s locally sourced, fresh and out of the ordinary.
First-Class Dining for Ellis Hotel Guests
Offering up American Southern fare with fresh, bold flavors, the Bistro Terrace uses ingredients from local and regional origins: fishermen, farms, and producers who are part of the local flavor of Atlanta. Sit and catch up with friends at the Lobby Bar & Lounge, where you can order a light dish and a refreshing cocktail or two. Blending casual dining and an farm-fresh focus, the Terrace Bistro offers delicious meals all day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Happy Hour is from 5 pm. to 6:30 p.m. each evening, where you can choose from small plates and specialty cocktails costing only $5. Don’t feel like getting dressed for a night out? You can still enjoy the farm fresh dishes in the privacy of your guest room. In-room dining is available from 6:30 am. to 11 p.m. each day.
From breakfast buffets to sit-down dinners, the Terrace Bistro has a menu to please all palettes. Select the breakfast buffet package and you get your choice of special-order omelets, along with fruit, yogurt, granola, bacon, sausage, biscuits and more to start your day off right. For lunch, try the soup of the day along with one of their delicious gourmet salads or sandwiches.
The menu changes seasonally, but to get an idea of what you’re in store for, you might see choices like the Herb Chicken Salad, Farm Egg Sandwich with local Gouda, Turkey Brie Melt, Shrimp and Grits, or the Terrace Burger with grass fed local beef. For dinner, sample the Artisanal Cheese Plate featuring local farmstead and artisan cheeses, Shaved Kale Caesar Salad with julienne carrots and heirloom tomatoes, Eden Farms Pork Chop with spice rubbed sweet potato, and Jumbo Lump Crab Cake with roasted seasonal vegetables. Wine lovers will not be disappointed in the wine menu, either, or the signature Ellis Hotel cocktail, the Red Kiss Martini.
Nearby Atlanta Attractions
After your meal, venture into the downtown area where you’re just a quick walk from attractions like the Georgia World Congress Center, the Georgia Aquarium, and the Coca-Cola Museum. From the Atlanta Ballet and Fox Theatre to the Georgia Dome and the Collegiate Football Hall of Fame, you’re never too far from all the action. In addition to MARTA, the new Atlanta Streetcar stops right in front of the Ellis’ front door, connecting it conveniently with all of downtown Atlanta.
