Big Table Restaurants, the company behind HOBNOB Neighborhood Tavern and Lazy Llama Cantina, will open Cattle Shed Wine & Steak Bar on Thursday, May 27 in the Halcyon mixed-use development, according to an announcement his week.
Cattle Shed is the Atlanta hospitality group’s first farm-to-table concept and offers a seasonal menu of steaks, small plates, and charcuterie centered around wine. The restaurant will initially serve dinner only followed by weekday lunch and weekend brunch in a few weeks.
“We are excited to bring back the celebratory nature of dining out combined with a more approachable service experience at a time when more and more restaurants and businesses are fully reopening and people are eager to return to normal,” Big Table Restaurants Co-Owner Sean Yeremyan said in the announcement. “We received a warm reception from the Halcyon community after opening HOBNOB last year and look forward to welcoming guests to Cattle Shed.”
Executive chef Colin McGowan, formerly of 14 Seats Supper Club, Kimball House, Bacchanalia, and State Farm Arena, is helming the kitchen at Cattle Shed. The dinner menu features a la carte charcuterie, small plates, several cuts of steaks with sauce options and entrees while lunch offerings include a combination of items from the dinner menu plus a selection of sandwiches and salads. For brunch, think crab Benedict, classic French omelet and oysters, and grits as well as a selection of sandwiches and charcuterie.
Cattle Shed boasts a strong emphasis on wine and enlisted Michael McNeil, Georgia’s “one and only” master sommelier, to create the wine list offering 150 Old World and New World selections that rotate seasonally 30 wines by the glass, and wine on tap. The beverage selection also features craft cocktails, sangria, frosé, and rotating seasonal beers. Guests at Cattle Shed can look forward to happy hour specials, wine tasting events, and an incentivized wine club.
The 2,500 square-foot restaurant space features a purple and brass color scheme, several banquettes, large windows that look out onto the wraparound patio, and an indoor-outdoor bar. The dining room seats 70, while the large patio seats an additional 50.
Cattle Shed Wine & Steak Bar will be open for dinner Monday through Sunday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. In a few weeks, the restaurant will open for lunch Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The restaurant also will offer a charcuterie menu between lunch/brunch and dinner service from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
