The restaurant will be located within the 11,000-square-foot second phase of developer Carter’s Georgia Avenue redevelopment project, set to break ground this month.

Chef Peter Dale (The National, Condor Chocolates, and Seabear Oyster Bar) and partners Michael Clancy and Nathan Goodman are behind Maeople.

It will be open for lunch and dinner, serving Southern staples while drawing global flavor inspiration.

“Since opening Maepole in Athens a few years ago, it has always been our vision to grow this concept beyond our hometown and we knew opening a location in Atlanta was a natural next step,” Dale said in a press release Monday.

“We were immediately drawn to Summerhill because of the character of the community and its connection to so many surrounding neighborhoods, and we’re eager to reach a much broader audience with our tasty and exciting approach to healthy eating.”

Maepole’s 2,500-square-foot Summerhill location will feature a menu and minimalist look similar to its Athens flagship, featuring items such as whole wheat mac-and-cheese, sweet potatoes, green beans with Vidalias, and shaved brussels sprouts.

All meat is hormone- and antibiotic-free, the beef is grass-fed, and all items are free of high-fructose corn syrup.

The menu will also be allergy-friendly, with gluten and soy only used in marked items.

Phase two of the Georgia Avenue redevelopment will take the place of the existing gravel lot across from Wood’s Chapel BBQ and adjacent to Little Tart Bakeshop.

In addition to Maepole, other restaurants set to open along Georgia Avenue in 2020 include Press Start, Little Bear, Concept, Redacted, Hot Dog Pete’s, Hero Doughnuts and D Boca N Boca.
