COBB COUNTY — Yard House, the California-based sports bar chain that has an outpost in Atlantic Station, just opened the doors at its second Atlanta location. The restaurant began service Monday at the Battery development that lies adjacent to SunTrust Park, new home of the Atlanta Braves.
Regular hours at 825 Battery Avenue are Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. More than 130 beers are available on tap, including 37 brews from the state of Georgia. Yard House’s food menu includes dishes such as poke nachos, Nashville hot chicken, and fried gnocchi, and there are a number of vegan and vegetarian options. While the chain already operates an Atlanta location, the team hopes to offer a unique experience at its new address.
“We take great pride in putting together the best craft beer offerings possible,” director of beverage strategy Gregory Howard said in a prepared statement. “It’s a process, and no two locations are alike; each has its own distinct beer list driven by what guests are enjoying locally.”
GLENWOOD PARK — Tampa-based beer bar The Brass Tap has a new Atlanta location in business. Following an opening in Dunwoody last year, the chain has set up shop in Glenwood Park at 790 Glenwood Avenue SE. The location opened to the public on Monday.
The Brass Tap pours more than 200 varieties of beer, with 60 of those available on draft. Dining options are centered around a selection of customizable burgers, and there are shared plates, sandwiches, tacos, and flatbreads as well.
DECATUR — First Watch, the Bradenton, Florida-based breakfast chain, opened its seventh Atlanta-area restaurant at 2571 Blackmon Drive, Suite 100, on Monday. The restaurant serves modern morning standards like avocado toast, smoked salmon eggs Benedict, breakfast tacos, and lemon-ricotta pancakes. Coffee beverages and house-pressed juices are available to wash it all down. Hours are 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., seven days a week.
