  • This restaurant is at Boar's Head Resort
The planned updates, designed by Johnson Studio at Cooper Carry of Atlanta, include a relocation of the main entrance and porte cochère. According to Russ Cronberg, Boar’s Head general manager, the new entrance will open into a completely reimagined lobby. “Our guests will walk into a totally transformed area filled with natural elements, bookshelves adorned with historic reference materials and updated furnishings, making it a truly unique gathering place,” he explained. Along with the lobby and entrance renovations, Johnson Studio will transform the Old Mill Room restaurant. According to Shawn Jernigan, director of food and beverage, this new space will be a carefully curated mixture of old and new. “History will still run deep in this space as we’ll have increased natural lighting that will illumiate the existing 1834 wood beams that provide a focal point for the room.” The design includes seating for 200 guests and upgrades to the porch room, with a private dining area and flexible banquet space for larger gatherings. “The marquee element of this project will be a glass-backed bar that will enliven the main restaurant seating areas, giving the space an open and airy feel,” Jernigan added. Complementing the physical changes to the restaurant will be an entirely new locally-inspired menu by Executive Chef Dale Ford, featuring dishes that evoke regional history with a modern twist. While the current Old Mill Room dining space is being renovated, the resort will continue to offer dining options to guests and the general public at its brand-new Racquets Restaurant in the Sports Club and the recently renovated Birdwood Grill inside the Birdwood Golf Course clubhouse.
