Get the 911 leather jacket out of the closet and grab the red Porsche hat from the rack, because there is a dining destination perfect for your specific automotive tastes.
Luxury Daily’s Kay Sorin reports Atlanta’s Porsche Experience Center unveiled its Restaurant 356, which is a dining experience engineered for car lovers. We just hope the steak doesn’t taste like horsepower.
The Atlanta location is hoping to attract Porsche enthusiasts who are hungry for more than just driving ridiculously awesome cars around a track.
While you can most certainly do that to the tune of $300 for an hour and a half in a Panamera GTS all the way up to $750 for the same amount of time in a 911 Turbo or 911 GT3, via the company’s booking page, there is an added treat at the Atlanta center.
It’s a dining experience suited for the kind of person who wears sunglasses indoors and wears gloves to go driving.
Sorin spoke with manager Michelle Juzeszyn-Rainey who offered thoughts on what an extravagant meal might mean to patrons: “But the venue also allows us the opportunity to share our brand heritage with our guests and enables them to learn a little about our brand. At 356, we can engage with customers in a more personal and relaxed manner.”
More information can be had at the Atlanta Experience Center website, which offers the following: “Our classically trained chef and staff maintains a regularly updated menu to offer the best in both traditional and fusion style cuisine, which is available for lunch and dinner. The menu provides healthy, wholesome, and modern dishes that can be accommodated to meet any guests’ special requests.”
Here are some images of the scintillating spot thanks to Twitter:

As you can see, Restaurant 356 is indeed posh, but the focus remains on driving and the Porsche experience.
The location even offers an amazing vantage of the track below.
Speaking of which, the following video offers insight into what you might expect with a visit to one of Porsche’s Experience Centers:
Now there is no word on specific items making it on the menu, but Sorin writes, “The restaurant will feature a fusion cuisine that combines elements of Polish, French and Southern fare made with locally grown produce.”
In the end, you will feel like you are eating in your car—one very large and very expensive one.
Juzeszyn-Rainey relays to Sorin: “The decor and furnishing selections were carefully designed to reflect the interiors of the 356 model, with rich brown leathers, detailed stitching, the tufting on the seats and the materials used for the tables.”
Those who grew up with Porsche posters on their wall (Please refrain from telling anyone.) now have their very own Disneyland of sorts.
Instead of inexpensive churros around Main Street, they get to enjoy fancy meals befitting the roar they might hear from the track below.
