Now in Georgia, serving Southern brunch, lunch and dinner.
Asheville, N.C.-based Tupelo Honey Café brings its scratch-made, imaginative Southern food, craft beer list and cocktail program to Atlanta with its first Georgia location in Sandy Springs.
The menu offers a selection of innovative, sharable Southern small plates such as Appalachian shrimp with sorghum chili-glazed, wild-caught American shrimp served with garlic kale and corn soufflé, seasonal summer salt roasted beets tossed with orange wedges, spiced pecan encrusted goat cheese and a basil vinaigrette over micro-greens, and fried avocado topped with fresh tomato salsa, cilantro and whipped sour cream.
Entrée options include Tupelo Honey Café’s signature, slow-roasted “Wampus Cat” ribs smothered in a maple pepper bourbon glaze; “Shoo Mercy” pancake, the restaurant’s famous sweet potato pancake topped with whipped peach butter, spiced pecans, buttermilk fried chicken, apple cider bacon and maple syrup; and pan-seared sea scallops served over ancient grains and wilted kale and arugula, and drizzled with an apple cider reduction. The menu also boasts a variety of farm fresh sides, soups, salads and sandwiches like the signature “Southern Belle” grilled cheese, an oozing blend of brie, gorgonzola and house-made pear and onion marmalade, perfectly paired with a honeysuckle lavender flip cocktail featuring Cathead honeysuckle vodka, house-made lavender sweet and sour mix, soda water and fresh lemon.
“Our team looks forward to bringing Tupelo Honey Café’s acclaimed Southern Appalachian cuisine to Atlanta’s vibrant dining scene,” said founder and CEO, Steve Frabitore. “In addition to delivering top-level service and delicious food to the city, we’re thrilled to bring competitive job opportunities to Atlanta’s restaurant community.”
In addition to serving treasured menu favorites, Tupelo Honey Café will introduce Atlanta-only drinks and food specials, such as the “Jazzy Belle #5,” a peach sweet tea frozen daiquiri featuring a blend of Doc Collier’s peach and sweet tea moonshines, peach liqueur, white peach puree, coconut milk, fresh lemon and lime juices, raspberry puree and whipped cream with basil sugar. Other specials include bottomless “mac-smack-n-cheese” on Thursday nights and Tupelo Honey Café’s Fried Chicken Tower, served family-style and available while supplies last on Sunday and Wednesday evenings. Every Sunday through Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m., Tupelo Honey Café will also offer a happy hour menu featuring reduced price small plates, in addition to draft beer, wine and cocktail specials.
