Downtown Hotel Indigo Delayed, Cafe Intermezzo Opening Soon?

InterContinental Hotel Group's newest Hotel Indigo seems to be moving about as fast as Ben Carter's The Streets of Buckhead, on their new downtown hotel. Once said to be opening in May 1, then July, then August 15, and most recently, October, is now "accepting reservations for arrivals after February 1, 2011." When the hotel finally opens, it will be the third Indigo in the state, joining the midtown property near the FOX Theater and the new property in Athens near UGA. Taking advantage of an existing structure, the Carnegie Building, the Indigo downtown will feature Cafe Intermezzo as its on-site restaurant. I was told in late July that the restaurant would be open inside of "40 days," hopefully late August or early September. Given the current state of the lobby area, I find this hard to believe. I'd hope they would open before the oft delayed hotel, so perhaps by the first of the year? A restaurant representative informed me that the location at the Indigo will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and will handle banquet and in-room dining for the hotel. The downtown location will be Cafe Intermezzo's fourth, joining sister locations on Peachtree in South Buckhead, at Park Place in Dunwoody and the new location at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. With Rising Roll now open not far away and Jack's Sandwich open again in Peachtree Center, I think Cafe Intermezzo will be a nice addition to the dining options downtown, especially for breakfast!
