Seizing an opportunity to make adjustments during the pandemic, MetroFresh Inc. has decided to add a full bar to its already popular beer and wine bar.
“We’re taking our BAR MetroFresh brand that we created at MetroFresh Uptown and putting it in our Midtown Promenade location,” MetroFresh Inc. Owner Mitchell Anderson said.
He said the chef-driven fast-casual dining spot is in the final weeks of getting its full liquor license and will be going back to dinner service on May 3 “with a full bar.”
The Midtown Promenade location will also be expanding its weekend hours to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and to 8 p.m. on Sundays.
“We have an unusual opportunity, that doesn’t usually happen to a 15-year-old business, coming out of COVID-19 restrictions to rebrand our nighttime at MetroFresh,” Anderson explained in an email to What Now Atlanta. “We are hoping to create a fun and casual meeting place that is more about hanging out than just grabbing a quick dinner.”
MetroFresh will be adding a small plate bar menu that will be available all week long with a daily menu of soups, salads, and dinner entrees.
MetroFresh Midtown serves breakfast until 11 a.m., lunch all day, and Sunday Brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It uses the freshest in-season ingredients to build unexpected flavor combinations that aren’t often found at a fast-casual cafe.
MetroFresh opened in a 1,250-square-foot space in the front of the Midtown Promenade in 2005.
“We’re also introducing Slider Sundays, a menu of creative sliders on Sunday afternoons and evenings,” Anderson added.
