"Steak 101" Coming to Vinings

Established team opening steakhouse in Vinings. 

101 Concepts, the Atlanta-based group behind Food 101, Cibo E Beve, Smoke Ring and the assorted Meehan's Public House locations, plans to open a new restaurant later this year in Vinings Main shopping center on Paces Ferry Road. 

"Steak 101," as I'm told the restaurant will be called, will open in place of Social Vinings, which closed at the end of last year, reportedly unable to find a buyer.  Plans call for some renovations to the 6,800 square foot space, but not too much, as ownership plans a spring opening.  

Sources tell me the restaurant will be steak-centric but will offer other local and regionally sourced fare as well.   

The Vinings location of Meehan's is located in nearby The Station at Vinings shopping center.  

Are you excited to have a steakhouse coming to Vinings?  Do you miss Social Vinings?  What is your favorite 101 Concepts restaurant?

Please share your thoughts below.

They will not last long in that spot if service is as bad there as it is at their other restaurants. It's a shame because the food tends to be fairly decent. There are already several established "nicer" restaurants within a few hundred yards--Paces & Vine, Sotto Sotto, etc. It will be interesting to see if they can compete.

Will be interesting to see how the new "meat " place will do vs the legendary "meet " market that social was.

They will have a hard time competing against The Public House in the Hotel across the street. Excellent service and food fare. May the best win out.

I think it will do great. Better than Social Vinings because I never really enjoyed the food there. I don't believe that the other restaurants will have an affect on it.

I happy someone is moving in. Vinings Main is such a great area!

I hope the "renovations" include NOT having the dinning in the dungeon. Dark and you miss seeing all the energy of the upper level.

Very excited to have another 101 Concepts restaurant. They are the guys who started SOHO, Meehans and many more. They know their stuff. It is going to be a hard floorplan to work with but looking forward to see what they have done. Great to have another restaurant/bar with quality food and service in Vinings.
