Located in the heart of Midtown Atlanta, The Lawrence offers guests highly crafted cocktails, and delicious brunch, lunch, and dinner options. Our beverage and food menus change seasonally to offer fresh perspectives and the opportunity to partner with local produce & protein vendors here in the South. Our point of view is rooted in a true understanding of American fare that starts with our Southern foundation and pulls from the local & international influences provided by all of our city’s diverse cultures.
Named after the patron saint of chefs, The Lawrence was born out of Dinner Party Atlanta, an underground supper club pioneered by Darren Carr. After several years of successful, guerilla-style dinner events sprinkled throughout the city, a location was secured in the Midtown niche for a thoughtful reinterpretation of the American bistro/brasserie that reflected the people it aimed to serve. With partner Eric Simpkins on deck as our original General Manager and Beverage Director, an entity was born with a stimulating beverage program that challenges all of us to think outside the box, while still delivering on classic pours and provisions.
Since the beginning, The Lawrence aimed to create a dynamic and distinguished dining space for the people of Atlanta. Our strategies tap into the rhythm of Atlanta’s beating heart: its people. We design and develop a thriving social space for dining, celebrating, or any occasion, working towards a consistent role in our Midtown community, and beyond. We are the go-to spot for the everyday, and the exceptional.
