Chef Micah Willix Opens Latitude

Chef Micah Willix announced a November open date for his new restaurant concept, Latitude, to be located in Phipps Plaza in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood.  Willix was most recently the executive chef at Ecco, a Fifth Group restaurant.

Latitude will offer a flavor-driven menu with a wine selection of over 60 bottles selected to pair with Willix’s offerings. Anticipated menu items include dishes such as spot prawn ceviche, toasted coriander, lime and Spanish chorizo; spicy pork sausage, roasted cherries and chicory; braised squid, ink, lemon, ginger and Thai basil grilled bitter greens, soft-poached egg, roasted green garlic and tarragon; and pan-roasted blade steak with smoked potato and horseradish.

“This will definitely be a change from what I’ve been cooking for the past five years,” said Willix of the new concept. “Latitude will be an opportunity for me to explore more options of different cuisines and cultures, but I still want to cook and create dishes that are simple and close to the source – grassroots.”

Willix is working with industry veterans and partners Kenny Perlman, formerly of Seasons 52 and Houston’s, and Emily Streib Marcil, formerly of Capital Grille and currently of Second Growth LLC.

The restaurant was designed by Brian Watford and includes a large 30-seat patio with a large water feature and urban garden design.
