Chef Linton Hopkins and culinary director Damon Wise prepare for the opening of steakhouse C. Ellet’s at the Atlanta Braves’ new Cobb County ballpark with preview service. On Sunday, June 18, Hopkins and Wise will bring a “steak takeover” to Buckhead Restaurant Eugene to work with chef Chris Edwards on a sneak peek of the menu.
In an interview with Eater Atlanta, Hopkins describes the C. Ellet’s concept as, “... a true a la carte steakhouse experience. It’s the steak on a plate, order a bunch of sides [format]. Even the salmon, or the piece of grouper would just come on the plate, butter-basted with herbs and garlic. The bar, though, has more plates. At lunchtime, that’s where you’re going to have sandwiches. I love the half-and-half po’ boy — half shrimp, half oyster, I just love that.”
The takeover will focus on the beefy portion of the menu with prime cut steaks, like a 24-ounce cowboy ribeye which can be topped with bone marrow butter. The C. Ellet’s menu takeover at Restaurant Eugene will be available on June 18 from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
