A soul food stall, a superfood and smoothie bar, and a stall serving comfort food are opening later this fall at Chattahoochee Food Works, the northwest Atlanta food hall located on the edge of the Underwood Hills neighborhood.
The first 13 restaurant stalls and a central bar are now open at the sprawling 31-stall market and test kitchen, backed by celebrity chef and Bizarre Foods host Andrew Zimmern and Robert Montwaid — the man behind Gansevoort Market in New York City.
The new stalls
Owned by Juan Felipe Segura, Selvasana will serve acai bowls, smoothies, juices and sparkling fruit-blended drinks, and a variety of salads on the menu.
Grub Truck Stop
The food truck, owned by Jashaun and Lauren Lowery, will open a permanent location at Chattahoochee Food Works, serving its lobster and crab grilled cheese sandwiches, shrimp baskets, and crabby and funnel cake fries.
Delilah’s Everyday Soul
Voted best mac and cheese by Oprah Winfrey, Philadelphia chef and cookbook author Delilah Winder is opening a soul food stall at Chattahoochee Food Works this fall. In addition to the Oprah-approved mac and cheese, Delilah’s Everyday Soul will also serve fried chicken, Southern food staples, like fried green tomatoes, and strawberry lemonade.
Additionally, food stalls Belen de la Cruz – Empanadas and Pastries, Hippie Hibachi, Philly G Steaks, Cubanos ATL, It’s Baked Baby, and Dash and Chutney should open later this summer. LoRusso’s Italian Market, serving Italian-style sandwiches and New York deli-style food and selling Italian and European food items, and raw bar Smoked Pearl opened earlier in June. Both are owned by Montwaid.
Chattahoochee Food Works is part of the the Works complex, an overhaul of several warehouses set along an industrial strip off of Chattahoochee Avenue bordering the Underwood Hills and Blandtown neighborhoods. The 80-acre development will eventually feature 500 residences, a boutique hotel, retail shops and the completed food hall, a 13-acre green space, and full-service outposts of Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q and California-based breakfast and brunch restaurant the Waffle Experience. Scofflaw Brewing opened Dr. Scofflaw’s Laboratory and Beer Garden at the Works last fall.
Atlanta-based coffee company Brash recently set up a mobile coffee bar at the Works inside a retrofitted 1968 Citroen parked outside the food hall. Brash owner Chris McLeod and Stop Think Chew chef Julia Kesler Imerman are teaming up to open Brash Kitchen at the development early next year. Once open in the Maker’s building at the complex, the all-day cafe will serve dishes influenced by Kesler Imerman’s Jewish and South African background and McLeod’s Australian roots.
A third Atlanta-area location of dog park and bar Fetch Park opens this year at the Works within green space adjacent to the parking deck near the entrance from Ellsworth Industrial Boulevard.
Chattahoochee Food Works and the central bar are open daily, starting at 11 a.m. Food stall Graffiti Breakfast opens daily at 9 a.m.
