Food that's seasonally rooted, locally focused, and unlimited in its stylistic boundaries—you're in for a dining experience like no other in Atlanta.
Chef Kevin Gillespie and Red Beard Restaurants opened Gunshow in 2013 in the Glenwood Park area of Atlanta. Gillespie and Executive Chef Joey Ward create a home-like atmosphere where guests can eat what they wish as he prepares dishes from refined to rustic and sends them out to the small dining room. Medium-sized plates are delivered as they are ready and offered to the guests who may choose what they’d like. This unique-to-Atlanta service approach emphasizes the fun, casual and personal atmosphere Gillespie wants to create. The design by the acclaimed team at ai3 has stretched the boundaries of traditional restaurant design and focused on creating a space that has tremendous functionality and openness. The menu will be ever-evolving with wonderfully delicious food that is seasonally rooted, locally focused, and unlimited in its stylistic boundaries. Gunshow is open for dinner Tuesday - Saturday.

“When I came to work at Gunshow, because we don’t have a physical bar, I found myself in the kitchen with the chefs. I see all the ingredients they work with daily. We are very innovative and seasonal, so our gin and tonic might be an artichoke gin with grapefruit and peppercorn tonic. It sounds strange, but it works beautifully.” -Mercedes O'Brian via Tales of the Cocktail
