Farm Burger’s ghost kitchen Farm Birds is now open for business. Available for pickup, delivery, or in-store at the restaurant’s Buckhead location, at 3365 Piedmont Rd NE, the Farm Birds menu features pasture-raised, heirloom chicken sandwiches that are accented with Southern flavors.
Crafted from breading to bun by Farm Burger head chef Cameron Thompson, and Atlanta-based chefs Dan Latham and Nick Melvin, the menu features a lineup of three simple sandwiches: The Original Southern Style, Atlanta Lemon Pepper Wet, and Nashville Hot. Each piece of chicken is brined in sweet tea, breaded in a proprietary flour and spice mixture, then fried. The butter brioche buns are sourced locally from Masada Bakery, and each sandwich is served with sliced pickles and a side of chopped coleslaw.
“The pandemic kicked our creativity up a notch and Farm Birds is a direct result of that,” George Frangos, co-founder of Farm Burger, said in a press release Thursday. “What started as an idea about seven years ago has come to life in the form of a ghost kitchen, pop-up and delivery service all rolled into one. Nobody in Atlanta is serving a chicken sandwich on this level right now and we’re excited to fill that gap at an affordable price point.”
Those looking to sample the Farm Birds menu can do so by dining in-person at Farm Burger’s Buckhead location, or by ordering online for pickup or delivery. Daily quantities will be limited during the first month of operation.
