Night owls rejoice. Bon Ton Boil House in Midtown is keeping the party going late night.
The Cajun meets Vietnamese seafood restaurant owned by Darren Carr and Eric Simpkins alongside Crawfish Shack’s chef Hieu Pham has heard the pleas of neighbors and loyal regulars and is extending their bar and kitchen hours to 2 a.m. In a city where few bars and restaurants stay open past 11 p.m., this is pretty exciting news; especially for members of the service industry who get off work after most establishments have closed for the day.
Co-owner Eric Simpkins said of the decision via press release, “We wanted this space to serve as a break and an escape for Atlantans and in particular, like-minded food and beverage industry folks. We made the call to stay open so that they can come by after their shifts are over and grab a delicious bite, sip on a well-made cocktail, and unwind at the end of the night among other Bon Ton guests.”
The kitchen which fuses “Big Easy-style cooking with Vietnamese flavors” from Hieu Pham and executive chef Matt Floyd will stay open for business until 2 a.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and until midnight on Sundays. Late night bites such as smoked shrimp jambalaya, roast beef po’boys, and loaded charbroiled red potatoes will be on the menu.
Bar manager Tyler Blackgrave and his team will continue slinging the popular Bon Ton Hurricane late into the night along with beer, wine, boilermaker specials, and the frozen Pimm’s Cup and Vietnamese Irish Coffee.
Bon Ton is open Tuesday - Saturday, 11 a.m. - 2 a.m. and Sunday, 11 a.m.- 12 a.m. at the corner of Myrtle Street and Ponce de Leon Avenue. 674 Myrtle St. NE, Atlanta. bontonatl.com.
