About us

Sandy Springs Best "Date Night" Restaurant

The goal of The Select Restaurant + bar is not only to become the best new restaurant in Sandy Springs, but also one of the best restaurants in Atlanta's metro area. A week after opening in May 2019, the restaurant already had 34 Google Reviews with a perfect 5-star rating, so The Select is on the way to reaching its goal. The Select concept is the brainchild of Dave Green and David Lester, the team who founded Vining's most popular restaurant, Paces & Vine, located in the Vining's Jubilee center. They chose the name The Select to honor a Le Select brasserie in Paris, France, where artists and literary giants, including Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Picasso, gathered. Right now, The Select is the most popular restaurant in Atlanta.

The Select is famous mainly for Chef Jason Hall's Contemporary Continental Cuisine featuring a French influence and Mediterranean dishes popular in Spain, the French Riviera, and Italy. The dinner-menu features popular favorites like Miso Sea Bass, Steak Frites, Faroe Island Salmon, Kurobuta Pork Chop, and Pan Roasted Select Chicken. Appetizers include fresh Oysters, Alaskan king crab, Steak Tartare, Grilled Spanish Octopus, Crispy Oyster, Duck Meatballs, Ahi Tuna, and Crab Cake, and that is not all. The Select also offers the best breakfast in Atlanta.


The Story of Our Name

The Select pays homage to Paris' famed Le Select brasserie — the notable all-day gathering spot for artists and literary giants, including Picasso, Hemingway, and Fitzgerald. Drawing inspiration from the Parisian restaurant, The Select will serve as a definitive neighborhood destination while being a fine romantic restaurant in Atlanta that invites guests to share honest food, standout spirits, and friendly conversation in a welcoming and relaxed setting.

Ernest Hemingway wrote extensively about Le Select in his novels "The Sun Also Rises" and "A Moveable Feast" where all are welcome to enjoy good food, outstanding wine, and spirits, and engage in friendly conversation. Le Select is still open in Paris today!

Park & Free Parking?


Our guests enjoy strolling in the City Green Park with a cocktail or glass of wine before or after enjoying our chefs' Seasonal Cuisine as The Select restaurant is adjacent to the only open container park in the Atlanta area, serving the best breakfast in the vicinity.

In warm months, our outdoor patio lets you enjoy the city scene, and in winter, transforms into a glass-enclosed romantic atrium.

We want your parking to be free, so if you park yourself in the over 1000 spaces in the underground deck, 2 hours are always open, but our host can validate your ticket for up to 4 hours free. Drive to the center of the deck and park in the Green area near Elevator Door 1. If you use the City Springs Valet near our front door, have us we validate your ticket, and you will pay $5 instead of the usual $15. Above ground, parking is always free but only for 2 hours and enforced.

The Select is located where Johnson Ferry, Mount Vernon, and Roswell roads meet.
