Welcome to Atlas

Inspired by Chef Elliot’s culinary journeys across six continents, Atlas incorporates striking dishes, modern techniques, and a spirit of adventure to create a restaurant that tells the story of our world through the language of food and hospitality.

Our mission at Atlas is to deliver a dining experience that takes you on a journey, involving all your senses, while setting the standard for service in Northwest Arkansas.

Our passion for discovery through travel is purposefully reflected in the thoughtfully curated interior design of the c. 1925 Ellis Building in downtown Fayetteville. The lounge and dining room showcase antiques, serving pieces, and art objects from around the world to captivating effect.
