Elevation Chophouse is aptly named. With its glass wall of windows that stretches up two stories and cuts clear views of the runways at Cobb County's McCollum Field to its liquid-nitrogen martinis and margaritas, Elevation takes fine dining to new heights. The restaurant is located next to the Atlanta Executive Jet Center and only several feet from the runway, allowing diners to devour classic chophouse creations while watching jets, helicopters, and small planes gracefully taking off, landing, and flapping their wings.
The chophouse prides itself on its steaks, which chefs hand cut, season with salt and pepper, and sear on an open pit of oak and hickory. Pacific rim and gulf shrimp swim onto plates beside classic sides such as loaded baked potatoes and steamed broccoli. Smoking, slushy-esque cocktails infused with liquid nitrogen line up beside spicy red wines and fragrant white wines at one of two bars, which host some of the restaurant’s myriad high-definition TVs.
