What Now Atlanta in December 2016 first revealed the concept was in the works.

Festivals Jerk Chicken Grill, at 925 Garrett Street SE Suite L, specializes in jerk chicken, “festivals” (an island favorite similar to a fried dumpling), and other Caribbean cuisine “with American flair.”

“We’re excited to give Atlantans a taste of the island life,” Winston Ferguson, the restaurant’s co-owner, said in the release.

“Festivals Jerk Chicken Grill brings unique flavors and dishes to Atlanta’s diverse restaurant scene.”

On the menu at Festivals Jerk Chicken Grill, expect to find small plates such as jerk wings, cocktail patties, and “festival purses.”

For the patron interested in traditional jerk flavor, house specialities include a quarter, half and whole chicken options accompanied by choice of sides.

There’s a separate menu for kids that includes a Lollipop Chicken Drumstick, Mac ’N Cheese, Chicken Tenders and more.

Festivals Jerk Chicken Grill, which could open as many as 12 Atlanta-area locations in the next five years, is planning a grand opening event for the community in mid-June.

I hope the picture is not representative of the interior decor. I suggest a “professional” “restaurant” designer and marketing/branding consultant to install your very important branding and marketing elements.
