The team behind Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall, the forthcoming BeltLine-adjacent eatery that will dish out "modern campfire cuisine," is going through final inspections and hopes to open in the first two weeks of August, according to owner Michael Lennox. But for anyone looking to get a sneak peek before official launch, there are upcoming opportunities at the restaurant.
On Monday, July 28, Gastro Gnome Grub Club is hosting a dinner at Ladybird from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. The first hour will feature cocktails and seasonal fruit on the patio, followed by supper at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available for $48.37.
A second showcase, the final leg of Square Feet Studio's Dining + Design, is scheduled for Thursday, July 31, from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The event will involve bicycling on the BeltLine, stops at Rathbun Steak and Ladybird, and words from Ryan Gravel, the brains behind Atlanta's urban trail. Tickets are $42.39.
In addition to the official events, Lennox and chef Robert Lupo will host multiple friends-and-family nights before opening.
