Farm Burger, the 100 percent grass-fed and locally-sourced burger joint, will open at The George in Grant Park Monday, March 26, according to a press release Thursday.
The forthcoming fast-casual restaurant, at 275 Memorial Drive SE, Suite 2B, will serve lunch and dinner daily Sunday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
The opening marks Farm Burger’s fifth Atlanta location, joining outposts in Decatur (Farm Burger’s original restaurant, first opened in 2010), Buckhead, Dunwoody and at the newly-opened Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
“We couldn’t be more excited to plant roots in Grant Park,” George Frangos, co-founder at Farm Burger, said in the release.
“Farm Burger is strongly tied to the neighborhood, as we’ve built relationships with neighbors at the Grant Park Farmers Market over the last four years. Our team is honored to build a permanent home within this tight-knit community.”
At Farm Burger in Grant Park, guests will find dishes made with ingredients sourced from local farms including cheese from Decimal Place Farm, produce from Hungry Heart Farm, apples from Mercier Orchards and pork from Anderson Farms.
The restaurant’s menu features burgers made from 100 percent grass-fed beef that’s sourced from Georgia farms, dry-aged, ground fresh and cooked to order.
Dishes also include burgers made from antibiotic-free chicken, pasture-raised pork and veggies, plus seasonal salads, hand-cut french fries and daily specials.
The beverage program features hand-spun milkshakes, floats, fair trade Maine Root soda, a curated and changing list of local craft beers (including Eventide Brewing in Grant Park) and small production wines.
Design elements included handcrafted furniture and reclaimed wood and metal finishes. The Grant Park location boasts a handpainted mural from local artist Caleb Morris, a long dining counter and back patio for outdoor dining and lounging.
This will be Farm Burger’s thirteenth location nationwide, with other restaurants in North Carolina (Asheville, South Asheville), California (Berkeley, Marin), Alabama (Birmingham, Huntsville) and Tennessee (Nashville, Memphis).
