Bar Review - Kevin Rathbun Steak

THE SETTING: The Johnson Studio truly outdid itself with this space: walls made of tightly stacked wood, exposed bricks, dim lighting and a chandelier that twinkles like the stars. The restaurant is invariably booked solid, but don't fret — the tables and booths in the bar are first come first serve. In fact, the spacious corner booth straddling the dining room and the bar area with a view of the open kitchen is the best seat in the house.

THE SIZZLE: USDA prime steaks sourced from the renowned Allen Brothers of Chicago are always cooked to the correct temperature. But for bar food, you can't beat the ground-to-order ribeye burger served on a soft onion bun with Tillamook cheddar and griddled onions.

THE BURN: The steakhouse takes great pride in its 200 label wine list. Bartenders make classic cocktails using high-quality small batch spirits. They're especially proud of their bourbon and single malt whisky selection, which includes finds such as an 18-year old Suntory Yamazaki Single Malt Whisky. The bar also sells cigars that you can enjoy on the covered patio overlooking the Atlanta Beltline.
