Le Bon Nosh

July 2022

As the front doors open, take a second to bring it all in. It’s as though you’ve just stepped inside Forough’s opulent French home

Life is better when it's interesting.

One of four distinct dining areas at Le Bon Nosh in Buckhead | Atlanta

The Brief.

Le Bon Nosh, an upscale all-day cafe and market from chef-owner Forough Vakili, opened in 2021 in The Irby district of Buckhead.

The Elevation.

On approach, a French influence is hinted with sidewalk lined bistro tables. As the front doors open, take a second to bring it all in. It’s as though you’ve just stepped inside Forough’s opulent French home. Met with soaring two-story ceilings and marble galore, a divine Espresso Bar greets in the “foyer.” 


To the right, gorgeous long-running silk curtains, plush seating, colors that speak luxury invite into a casual meets elegance dining area. Straight ahead is an open concept kitchen fronted by enticingly-filled food cases. Off to the left, the more casual dining area—think French farmhouse-eat-in. Long wood tables and shelves of curated books and cooking accoutrement invite a lingering, more casual stay. Just off this space, doors open to a welcoming, covered patio area for dining.
