Their main restaurant is called Saltwood, located inside the Loews Atlanta Hotel, is Midtown’s newest small-plate-style restaurant. Named for its emphasis on salted, cured meats and classically rustic presentation on wood blocks, this casual eatery features a charcuterie station that serves as the restaurant’s centerpiece. Diners can pull up bar stools to sample house-made and locally sourced items and sip on handcrafted cocktails and local microbrews while watching the restaurant’s charcuterie chef hand-carve meats and assemble charcuterie plates. Some people believe that the Loews is built on the site of the Loews Grand Theater where Gone with the Wind was premiered in Atlanta. That is not the case. The Loews Theater burned in 1978 and the property is located several miles down Peachtree Street.
