Reps for the family-owned-and-operated Nashville-based eatery this week filed a permit application with the City of Atlanta to build out its new 4,860-square-foot Hattie B’s, at 1000 Howell Mill Road.

The new location was first announced in August 2019 nearly at the one-year anniversary of Hattie B’s entry into the Atlanta market with an outpost at 299 Moreland Ave. (opened July, 2018.)

“It’s a good spot in a bustling part of town,” Nick Bishop Jr., co-founder of Hattie B’s alongside his father Nick Bishop Sr., said in a press release at the time of the announcement last year.

“When we were looking for our first Atlanta location, we were looking in this area back then. It’s a part of town we’ve always had our eye on.”

The permit filing is the first major step toward Hattie B’s West Midtown becoming a physical reality since the announcement six months ago.

Construction is expected to ring in at $900,000, according to the official plans.
