Upper Westside food hall Chattahoochee Food Works announced in a press release four new stalls joining its growing list of tenants. Flower market Summer Breeze Flowers, comfort food joint Grub Truck Stop, soul food spot Delilah’s Everyday Soul, and smoothie shop Selvasana will be the next stalls to open at the mixed-use development project.
Johns Creek-based flower shop Summer Breeze Flowers specializes in European-style flowers and arrangements, and will be the second non-culinary stall at the food hall, after Japanese gift shop Sakura Gift. Summer Breeze will sell paper wrapped flower bouquets, indoor plants, and preserved flowers, and is expected to open at Chattahoochee Food Works by the end of the summer.
Selvasana, a new concept from Juan Felipe Segura, who owns Bak Mexican Taqueria in Colombia, will do Brazilian açaí bowls, salads, juices, and smoothies, and is expected to open in a few weeks. “The idea is to bring the fruits of the jungle to the city,” says Segura of Selvasana, which translates to “healthy jungle” in English. Segura will serve açaí cups, rather than bowls, so they’re easier for customers to take on the go. But don’t let the size and shape of his cups fool you — Selvasana will offer unlimited toppings (including superfood toppings), so you can feel free to go crazy customizing your meal.
Atlanta-based food truck Grub Truck Stop will also soon be serving their famous Crabby Fries at Chattahoochee Food Works. The comfort food joint’s full menu will vary by day, but you can expect crab and lobster grilled cheese, funnel cake fries, and shrimp baskets, to start. No word yet on when Grub Truck Stop will open its stall, but one thing’s for sure: if and when you hit up the Grub Truck stall for some freshly-cooked comfort food, you’re going to have to head home for a nap.
Philadelphia-based Delilah’s Everyday Soul, whose mac and cheese was voted “Best in the Nation” by Oprah, is expected to open a stall on September 1st. Mother-daughter duo Delilah Winder and Delana Reeves have relocated the business to Atlanta and will be running the place. “I felt Chattahoochee Food Works was reminiscent of my mother’s first food stall in Philadelphia’s Reading Terminal Market,” says Reeves, who lives on the Westside. “We feel a special connection to this neighborhood, and we’re really excited to be a part of the growth that’s happening here.” As for the food, expect nothing but the best southern favorites. Fried chicken, mac and cheese, fried green tomatoes, homemade chips, and strawberry lemonade will feature heavy on the menu.
The bottom line is, from potted plants and fresh-pressed juices to fried foods and gooey mac and cheese, Chattahoochee Food Works is truly about have it all. Whether you’re craving an Amazon Jungle-inspired smoothie after a long run, or a plate of fried chicken or funnel cake fries after a long night out, the food hall will have you covered.
