You’ve been primed in the art of living well. But a refresher course never hurt anyone. Get schooled at Livingston, open today across from The Fox Theatre marquis.
History: It’s named after early 1900s mayor Livingston Mims, who loved fine food, wine, and entertaining.
Geography: A two-story dining room with five distinct eating environments, including both a bar and outdoor terrace overlooking Peachtree. Metallic accents, white columns, and an irridescent screened chandelier contrast with dark mahogany tables and charcoal gray seating.
Art: In the theater kitchen, executive chef Gary Mennie (Canoe, Taurus) creates New American masterpieces like White Oak Pastures flat-iron steak, Georgia mountain trout with braised artichokes, and Riverview Farms Berkshire pork with Vidalia onion tart.
Math: If dinner begins at 5 p.m., and is served until 11 p.m. on weekends, then theater-goers have the option to dine pre- or postshow.
It passes the test with flying colors.
