The Real Milk and Honey has soft-opened in College Park, at 3719 Main Street.
The all-day brunch joint is from Chopped Redemption winner Chef Sammy Davis and partner Monique Rose Simms.
An “official” opening is set for Monday, July 15, a company spokesperson told What Now Atlanta in a telephone interview Wednesday.
Davis is in the College Park kitchen overseeing the restaurant’s “simple,” 10-item menu referred to as “The Top Ten,” which includes an award-winning Shrimp and Grits dish.
The Real Milk and Honey shares the same “blueprint” as sister concept Milk and Honey, which has several Washington, D.C. locations, but is designed with a focus on “music and musicians.”
The owners added “The Real” to this location’s name as a differentiator from Milk and Honey on Cascade road which opened as a franchise of the D.C. brand.
That agreement has since ended, the spokesperson said, and no longer shares any affiliation.
“After the tremendous success we have had in the DMV, Chef Sammy and I wanted to return to Atlanta where we know Milk and Honey already has a strong following, and again offer Georgia diners the authentic taste, the distinct ambiance, and soulful style of the Milk and Honey brand,” Simms said in a prepared statement Wednesday.
It was designed to feature all of the “Milk and Honey brand characteristics” and an environment “inspired by legendary musicians across all genres.”
The Real Milk and Honey has seating for approximately 75 and an outdoor patio.
Starting Monday the restaurant will be open Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
