Summerhill’s Georgia Avenue is now home to Maepole after months of delay. Now open, the first Atlanta outpost of chef Peter Dale’s Athens, Georgia-based restaurant serves “real, seasonal food fast, at reasonable prices,” according to an announcement this week.
“Flavors of the South accent the menu with mostly plant-based ingredients, perfect for those looking for a healthy, tasty alternative to fast food,” a spokesperson said in an email to What Now Atlanta Wednesday.
Maepole is open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., at 72 Georgia Ave. Suite 500.
“This is an exciting time in Summerhill as we welcome Maepole and begin to open more and more new businesses,” Jack Murphy, senior director at Carter, the Atlanta-based real estate firm that is redeveloping Summerhill, said in the announcement. “Maepole is the first of many highly anticipated openings for 2021, and with its menu of flavorful, healthy options, I am sure it will add to the draw of this truly special neighborhood.”
At Maepole, guests can mix and match locally sourced vegetables and responsibly raised proteins.
Bases such as super greens, brown rice, sweet potato, or quinoa anchor the plate, and sides like broccoli salad, shaved Brussels sprouts, mac and cheese, and braised kale can be added.
Proteins include chicken, shredded pork, fritters (black-eyed peas, quinoa, and mushroom), and seared tempeh.
Also on the menu are seasonal chef plates, extras like chow chow and kimchi, homemade sauces, and signature Maepole drinks such as Greaterade (watermelon juice with a pinch of salt) and Figment kombucha.
