Hobnob Neighborhood Tavern is opening its doors in Atlantic Station on Monday, March 1, according to an announcement this week from the growing chain. Situated at 245 18th Street in the live-work-play development, the new Hobnob is the fourth location for the restaurant and was built from the ground up.
“We’re delighted to welcome our neighbors in Atlantic Station and Midtown Atlanta to enjoy the Hobnob experience,” Sean Yeremyan, co-owner of parent company Big Table Restaurants, said. “When they see our spacious, two-story layout, our rooftop patio, and most of all our fantastic menu of southern favorites and handcrafted cocktails, I know they’ll have found their new favorite hangout.”
Hobnob Atlantic Station boasts the eatery’s menu of favorites including soft pretzels with warm cheese and beer dip, 12-hour porter-braised short ribs, low country shrimp and grits, Tavern salmon, Mother Nature bowls, fried chicken sandwich, and the pork belly double-decker BLT.
The new location also offers two steak entrées not found at other Hobnob locations, including a chimichurri skirt steak accompanied by roasted poblano grits and crispy onion rings and an herb-crusted rib-eye steak served with garlic Parmesan smashed potatoes and napa cabbage. Frozen drinks include the Frozé Fishbowl, a 54-ounce frozen rosé cocktail, and Frozen Peach-lana Fishbowl, a frozen peach cocktail.
Overseen by General Manager Shannon Adams, with Chef Catherine Dill running the kitchen, Hobnob Atlantic Station serves lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, along with an array of weekly events including Tuesday Trivia and Hobnob’s Sunday fried chicken special.
The new location features a lounge area, private dining rooms, and “Hobnob High Up,” the rooftop patio available for guests 21 and older on a first-come, first-served basis. The patio, which overlooks Atlantic Station’s park and will play host to a live DJ on Friday and Saturday nights.
“Atlantic Station is a true-to-Atlanta development with a great representation of local dining and retail options,” Kristie Ray, director of marketing at Hines, Atlantic Station’s owner, said. “We strive to provide our community with a neighborhood environment with the best our city has to offer and Hobnob is a seamless fit. The new restaurant’s expansive balcony, delicious Southern fare, and position at the center of our property will make it a safe and popular dining option in the heart of Atlanta this spring!”
