Black Sheep Tavern & Oyster Room opens Tuesday, March 12 inside the former Eagle’s Nest Ministry church on Edgewood Avenue in the Sweet Auburn District, according to the AJC. Owner Andy Kober describes Black Sheep as a “timeless, classic tavern with bomb-a** sandwiches and approachable oysters.”
The tavern plans to offer all-day (and night) oysters and centers its menu around food like a classic pub burger, nachos topped with pizza fixings, and lemon pepper wings. There’s also a fried bologna sandwich, falafel tacos, “squid fries” — aka fried calamari — and a nightly sandwich special only available after midnight for the late night crowds bar-hopping along Edgewood.
As for drinks, Black Sheep is pouring 12 beers on tap, alongside bottles and cans, as well as wine and cocktails. For now, the tavern plans to only open for lunch, dinner, and late night. Weekend brunch begins in a few weeks.
Black Sheep seats 100 people inside and an additional 80 on the patio, which also includes fire pits and a bocce ball court.
