Johnny’s Chicken & Waffles – an original concept introduced to metro Atlanta by notable partners Crystal Smith and Ne-Yo – is set to open soon at 1080 Peachtree Street NE in Midtown. The 85-seat indoor dining space will provide full-menu service and will feature booths, tables, high tops, and bar seating. A take-out counter will serve pies baked fresh daily and a selection of café goods.
As the name suggests, the restaurant’s signature menu item is the most popular brunch food in Georgia – chicken & waffles. The hybrid dish that combines breakfast and lunch is made with crispy and juicy Southern fried chicken paired with fluffy and golden waffles.
Johnny’s Chicken & Waffles guests will have the option to customize the famed Southern staple with mix-and-match proteins, sauces, and add-on sides. Other sweet, savory, and satisfyingly good grub include their award-winning Mac and Cheese and signature recipes created by Chef Crystal Smith. Guests can also sip on signature drinks designed to share and served in carafes. Individual beverages are served in mason jars.
Fourteen platinum albums from famous Atlanta-bred musicians will grace the walls of the restaurant. Ranging from R&B, Rap, and Hip Hop, the collection will highlight names like OutKast, Ne-Yo, Ludacris, Usher, and more. Impressive original pieces of artwork, a mural of Harlem-based Apollo Theater, and Insta-worthy neon signage that reads “Everyday I’m Wafflin’” contribute to the music scene-influenced atmosphere of Johnny’s Chicken & Waffles.
Johnny’s Chicken and Waffles will be open seven days a week, serving brunch and dinner every day. Seating is first-come, first-served; no reservations required.
