Chef Jean-George’s Vongerichten’s exotic Spice Market restaurant at the W Atlanta Midtown got a spicy new Pond Room lounge, which was inaugurated with a cool cocktail party.
More than 75 VIPs enjoyed signature cocktails such as ginger margaritas, wine and munched on passed hors d’oeuvres from the new Spice Market Lounge men such as charred chili rubbed beef skewers and salmon sashimi. Guests entered through the secret stairwell entrance and grooved to music by DJ Mike Zarin, whose floating DJ booth hovered over the pond feature in the center of the room. Other cocktails on the new menu include the Cherry Blossom with Tanqueray gin, cherry yusu and Thai Basil and a Passion Fruit Whiskey Fizz composed of Maker’s Mark bourbon, passion fruit, and ginger ale. Spice Market is the brainchild of acclaimed international chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The sophisticated cuisine is inspired by the vibrant street life of Southeast Asia.
