Tate is the songwriter and hip-hop artist behind Passhon, and as such, is incorporating music into Loaded Potato Bar. The menu offers several references to famous hip-hop artists, such as Biggie Smalls with the Biggie Potato and Tupac Shakur, with The Pac Potato which features a roasted potato stuffed with lobster and a lemon-butter sauce as well as asparagus. There is also a vegan option, called the Nipsey Potato, with a sweet potato stuffed with portobello mushrooms, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, pico de gallo, and guacamole, named in tribute to Nipsey Hussle.

This will be Tate’s first brick-and-mortar, but she has her sights set on expanding through franchising, though no specific neighborhoods are yet on the table. Loaded Potato Bar’s first outpost in the heart of Vinings replaces a CamiCakes.
