The Cafe at Linton's, the new Atlanta Botanical Garden eatery from local empire builder Linton Hopkins, opened for business Saturday. The menu features natural meats and local produce, including fruits, vegetables, and herbs grown at the Garden.

The offerings vary daily based on available ingredients, but right now dinner entrees include dishes like chicken pot pie, roasted mountain trout, and sweet potato tortellini. Executive sous chef Justin Van Aiken is running the kitchen.

The cafe is just an interim project for Hopkins. He's working on a new restaurant, Linton's in the Garden, which is part of the Botanical Garden's expansion that is planned through 2017. It will seat more than 200, include a patio and rooftop deck, and offer views of the woodland garden and the Midtown skyline. Once Linton's in the Garden is completed, the cafe will be converted to office space as part of the multi-million-dollar project.

The Cafe at Linton's is open Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and nightly from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Admission to the Botanical Garden is required, and reservations are recommended for weekend nights. See examples of the menu below.
