The first Atlanta location of the New York-based 5 Napkin Burger opens for dinner tonight in Midtown Atlanta - they open for lunch starting next Monday. Atlanta joins the other five locations in New York, Boston, and South Beach. While the name of the concept might conjure up images of copious paper napkins and fast-food, 5 Napkin is more of an upscale sit-down burger spot with a butcher shop chic feel. The price point is higher - $14.95 for the "Original 5 Napkin Burger"(with your choice of side), a substantial ten-ounce burger topped with gruyere cheese, caramelized onions, and rosemary aioli. Everything is a little more souped up here versus your casual burger joint. Case and point: The tater tots are more fancy potato croquettes than cafeteria staple. The menu also holds some oddities like a selection of sushi rolls. The restaurant has a full-bar, which serves an extensive selection of beers and bourbons.
