Is It a Lobby or a Bar or a Restaurant??

I was all set to check out Bob Amick's new venture at Twelve at Atlantic Station this past Tuesday, and then venture over to the Fox Sports Grille to catch the Duke/Carolina game. That is until about 2:00 that afternoon, when I found out I was needed in a meeting in DC the next morning. But with the reservations made, and the rest of the group still going, my friend Bob agreed to be a ghost writer for me, and has offered the following assessment.

"Lobby at Twelve Atlantic Station in a new hotel/condo tower tries to capture the feel of a W Hotel without being too hip and trendy. Think modern designs, flat screen monitors, servers dressed in all black, etc. but with the casual touches you come to expect from a Bob Amick restaurant (PieBar, One Midtown Kitchen, Two Urban Licks). The space is small with an open layout that has a lot of energy. However it is difficult to get drinks at the small bar and the restaurant gets very loud. Lobby keeps it basic with 10-12 red and white wines by the glass organized by price $6-12 and a one page menu of contemporary American items. We tried a variety of things -- sea bass, roast chicken, wood-fired sausage/goat cheese/basil, panini. Overall we give it a good rating. Sea bass was excellent while the pizza was average. Service was friendly but not what you expect from a place like this. Cost averaged around $30 per person including drinks and tip. I might wait for it to be open a little longer before making a return trip."
