Located in the recently reimagined InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta and helmed by Chef Scott Conant, The Americano is an Italian steakhouse that is modern in approach and Italian in spirit. The luxurious restaurant offers a sophisticated, moody atmosphere that complements the elevated ambience of Buckhead. Guests will be greeted by custom sculptural artwork by Peter Deise, an island bar area and lounge, a large outdoor dining patio and two private dining rooms. Unique wire light fixtures add a warm glow, while pops of green add a cool touch to the interior design. The café also features al fresco seating on an intimate patio.

“The Americano bridges the gap between the deliberate touch of alta cucina and the soul of cucina rustica,” said Conant. “In other words, guests will experience the top quality, distinctive flavor profiles, stunning presentation and superior level of service of a high-end restaurant, but with more approachability.”

The Americano features elevated-yet-approachable offerings that serve every taste, blending a European style of highly personalized service with contemporary, Italian-inspired dining to create an exceptional and convivial experience. Hip and humble, The Americano offers a sophisticated, warm atmosphere adorned with modern art and show stopping lighting. 

Similar to its Scottsdale counterpart, The Americano’s menu will feature a range of dishes, from fine steaks, including prime and American Wagyu beef, to house-made pasta, organic salads, Italian antipasti and Mediterranean seafood. Diners can expect some of Chef Conant’s signature dishes as well, including pasta al pomodoro, polenta “cremosa,” caviar fries, Hamachi crudo, and braised wagyu beef cheeks. Conant’s culinary vision shares the spotlight with an inventive cocktail program that is playful and intricately devised. The wine list is thoughtfully curated with selections from iconic, established and emerging Italian and American producers.
