Southern Grace, which has been operating as a food truck based out of Suwannee, GA, has signed a lease to open its first brick-and-mortar location at Terminal South in Atlanta.
Owner Delorean Ostrom told What Now Atlanta that the eatery, known for serving southern dishes, is expected to open early next year. The restaurant will be located in Atlanta’s Peoplestown neighborhood at the upcoming commercial project Terminal South, which will include a food hall called the Switchman Hall that will feature 18 food stalls, ranging in sizes from 350 to 730 square feet.
Southern Grace will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner along with all-day biscuits. The menu will also include Fried Green BLT, spicy tomato relish, fried green tomatoes, arugula, and fried chicken breasts topped with local honey butter.
Ostrom, who has been in the restaurant industry for 23 years, worked as a chef at multiple restaurants in Atlanta before deciding to work independently and open his food truck.
“I decided to go out on my own with the food truck everything and so this is just the next logical step for me,” he said.
Southern Grace will not be taking its full food truck menu to Terminal South, but it will continue serving biscuits and a variety of fried foods, according to Ostrom. The restaurant might also offer a grab-and-go of healthy prepared meals at its new location.
Southern Grace was one of three tenants announced this week for the development including Perfect Seasoning and The Original Hotdog Factory.
