Staplehouse, Atlanta’s hottest new restaurant and recipient of accolades from near and far, is one year old. In honor of its first birthday, Jen and Kara Hidinger and chef Ryan Smith are bringing in some folks from Asheville to throw a smokey celebration. Pitmaster Elliott Moss and his Buxton Hall Barbecue team will take over the restaurant this Sunday.
Come party with us as our friends from Asheville take over! BBQ by @elliottmoss of @buxtonhallbbq. Entertainment by Greg Cartwright of Reigning Sound. Exciting offerings from @wickedweedbrewing including special collaboration of Juiceless, with @creaturecomfortsbeer. BBQ and sides $15. Beverage is separate. Payment taken at door. First come, first served (until the food runs out). We will be closed for normal service on 9/11 and reopen with normal business hours on Wednesday, 9/14. Valet will not be offered. Limited street parking available. Uber highly encouraged. #staplehouse #weloveatl #thegivingkitchen #birthday
From 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., Moss and co. will serve their whole-hog ‘cue and sides for $15 per person. Beers from Asheville’s Wicked Weed Brewing, including a collaboration with Athens-based Creature Comforts, will be available for purchase, and Greg Cartwright, front man for Asheville-based rockers Reigning Sound, will provide the entertainment.
For the ill-informed, Buxton Hall, like Staplehouse, opened last September, and, like Staplehouse, it’s considered to be one of the best new restaurants in America. Bon Appetit listed Staplehouse at the top of its best-new list last month, and Buxton Hall checked in at No. 9. The restaurant is co-owned by the team behind Chai Pani, which features locations in Decatur and Asheville.
