Following its patio opening last week, Staplehouse is ready to let guests inside. The restaurant's main dining room opens this Friday, offering tasting menu experiences that can be booked through Tock. Staplehouse's liquor license hasn't come through yet, so all alcohol is BYOB.
The patio and inside bar offer dishes a la carte and are first-come, first-served. Dining room bookings are available for parties of two to four, and the five-course meals (with additional snacks) are $85 per person. With Tock, the new ticketing system from Chicago restaurateur Nick Kokonas, diners pay in advance for their meals, which cuts down on no-shows and allows the restaurant to get a better idea of what it's working with on a nightly basis. Staplehouse is the first Atlanta restaurant on Tock.
Staplehouse, located at 541 Edgewood Avenue, is the evolution of Jen Hidinger's pop-up with her late husband and chef Ryan. Former Empire State South chef Ryan Smith helms the kitchen, and proceeds from the restaurant benefit The Giving Kitchen. Hours are Sunday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.
