Sage Woodfire Tavern, one of Atlanta’s most popular restaurant groups, has opened its flagship $3 million restaurant in the heart of Buckhead and will be hosting a “Welcome Buckhead” grand opening celebration May 3, providing a complimentary lunch buffet for up to 1,000 of his new neighbors.

Sage Woodfire Tavern Buckhead owner James Liakakos has totally transformed the former Morton’s The Steakhouse space at 3379 Peachtree Road NE., directly in front of Lenox Mall.

Liakakos personally designed every aspect of the 300-seat restaurant with tufted beige leather booths, an expansive 28-seat bar that opens up to a large outdoor patio, new lighting and wood and stone work as accents to the decor.

Liakakos also expanded the restaurant to include a second floor that will be used for private events; business meetings/presentations, as well as rehearsal dinners and other private parties. A sophisticated sound system has been installed to carry the sounds of the live entertainment throughout the 11,500 square feet.

Sage Woodfire Tavern Buckhead will provide area businesses and residents with the same level of food and service that patrons have come to love at the family -owned company’s three other locations in Alpharetta and Dunwoody and the newly opened restaurant on Windy Hill, just blocks from Suntrust Park, according to a press release.
