"This summer, Atlantans can explore a new Midtown spot with the August opening of Crave, a progressive restaurant and lounge serving small bites that pack a punch. Owned by partners Peter Anand, Richard Brett and executive chef Chad Guay, Crave blends international ingredients with Southern roots in an edgy space on Ponce de Leon Avenue."

Crave is going to be a low-key, neighborhood spot with a global feel. Chef Guay is a graduate of Art Institute of Atlanta and a Concentrics Restaurants alum. Sample menu items a include pork belly sandwich topped with cucumber, cilantro, pickled radish and harissa mayonnaise and small plates like ricotta gnudi with brodo, heirloom tomatoes and mint.

The restaurant opens in August, but you can preview their dishes at tonight's Cocktails in the Garden event at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.
