Hugh Acheson, a former contestant on Bravo’s “Top Chef Master,” is slated to open a new restaurant this summer.

By George will be located in the old Central bank space on the Peachtree Street side of the historic Candler Building, which Hilton will open as its newest Curio Collection hotel, AJC writer Leon Stafford reported earlier this month.

“It will have classic cuisine with a French influence,” hotel general manager Martin Wormull said of By George, which will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that the restaurant will be housed in a 3,000-square-foot space on the hotel’s ground floor.

The restaurant, named for the architects who designed the building, will feature a menu of French classics including roasted Cornish game hens with leek bread pudding, chanterelles and soybeans.
