Exciting changes are happening in the kitchen as Executive Chef Jason Paolini takes the lead as the culinary creative force of the Atlanta Botanical Garden’s restaurant in early 2017.

Longleaf, a two-level contemporary glass structure nestled next to Gardenhouse in the heart of the Garden, offers full-service dining, a grab-and-go cafe, and a flexible space for educational programs, private rentals and special events. Inside, guests enjoy commanding views of the Anne Cox Chambers Southern Seasons Garden and Levy Parterre, while from the rooftop terrace they drink in the beauty of Storza Woods, Alston Overlook and the Atlanta skyline beyond. Regardless of table, all will be treated to a savory menu by Paolini.

The restaurant’s new name is inspired by the longleaf pine, the resilient evergreen conifer indigenous to Georgia and the Southeast and a focus of significant conservation efforts.

Longleaf is open Tuesdays - Sundays from 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. Last reservation will be taken at 6:30 p.m. Brunch menu will be available on Saturdays and Sundays until 3 p.m. Garden admission is required for non-members of the Garden. Walk-in guests are welcome, though reservations are recommended.
