Cheesecake Factory-acquired Fox Restaurant Concepts, which owns and operates True Food Kitchen and Flower Child locally, is expanding its Atlanta repertoire with the addition of its Culinary Dropout restaurant, the Atlanta Business Chronicle is reporting.
Anita Walker, vice president of marketing for the Phoenix-based hospitality company, on Tuesday told What Now Atlanta that Fox had “not announced a new restaurant in Atlanta,” and would not comment further.
According to the ABC, Culinary Dropout is looking to enroll in the Brickworks mixed-use development, joining the recently-announced Postino from Upward Projects, another Phoenix-based company.
Brickworks is a 194,000 square-foot development owned and operated by Asana Partners, the Charlotte-based developer that is buying up Atlanta real estate left and right with the plan of redeveloping and remerchandising the properties with many first-to-market tenants. Take for instance the “Krog District,” a three-project development that will house a flagship Patagonia and will see the state’s first BrewDog.
Culinary Dropout’s website boasts it offers “damn good food for damn good people.” Atlanta’s Culinary Dropout will be the first for the brand East of Texas, as the ABC points out, with locations mostly in Arizona, and lone restaurants in Denver and Austin.
“At Culinary Dropout, raise your glass to friends coming together. A place where food and music are life. Join us at happy hour for ice-cold beer and our famous soft pretzels with provolone fondue,” according to the restaurant’s website. “At dinner, a signature cocktail and slow-braised 36-hour pork ribs are a perfect pair. While you and your crew enjoy damn good food & drinks, a local band plays live for great vibes. Come hang out and stay a while.”
It’s a great concept.
