Chef Matthew Lightner and the Atera team are taking their sweet-tart time to unveil the bar beneath their seventeen-seat chef's counter, but we hear it's a pretty sure thing for fall, most likely debuting in October or November. There's no name yet*, and word is drinks — like the inventive fare — will have a modernist, locavore slant. It's up in the air whether this one will be open to the general public or just to Atera patrons for pre- or post-dinner drinks, but we're hoping to be able to pop in for cocktails and some of those killer snacks.
