We wanted a place to house dishes from the world over…
under ONE roof.
We wanted a place to show off to visitors of our city…
without the stuffy attitudes.
We wanted a place that offered global wine & spirits that everyone else overlooked.
We wanted a place that paid attention to the details in food, drink and ambiance.
We wanted a place filled with amazing art and well designed iconic furniture.
We wanted a place that crafted cocktails with quality rather than speed.
We wanted a place that was hidden away, yet convenient to get to.
The Consulate is the product of a daring, adventurous chef and a detail obsessed interior designer. Both native New Yorkers, Douglas and Mei have made Atlanta their city of choice to call home. Their story is a romantic boy meets girl storyline with a twist… Instead of a grand wedding they created a hip tea shop in the Poncey-Highlands district called Honey Bubble Tea in 2012. However, providing Atlantas best Bubble Tea was not enough. They wanted to create even more. The Consulate is the first of 8 full service restaurants the couple has in store for the city! Each very distinct and different from each other, and more importantly, everyone else.
