Social distancing signage and enforcement measures have been installed throughout the now cashless corner food stall, including Plexiglass dividers at the register and bar. Director of operations Morella Mora tells Eater Atlanta all but four bar stools were removed to allow for six feet distance between people seated at the counter. Hand sanitizer is also available to the public.
“We want to encourage all our diners and market guests to wear masks for their safety and the safety of others,” Mora says.
People now enter Ponce City Market next to West Elm on the southeast side of the building. Stairs and elevators inside the central food hall and market are currently one way, and security is posted throughout the market to keep foot traffic flowing and large crowds from gathering.
As for Santiago’s new burrito stand and ceviche bar, El Burro Pollo, at the Collective food hall at Coda in Midtown, that stall is popping up at El Super Pan at Ponce City Market. The Collective is currently closed until area office buildings and Georgia Tech reopen.
Santiago’s popular “Juarez-style” burrito and “West Coast-style” ceviche pop-up became permanent at the Collective in March, right as the COVID-19 dining room shut downs began. El Burro Pollo’s pop-up menu at El Super Pan includes shrimp ceviche, pozole, and the stall’s namesake burrito made with chile-marinated chicken, as well as a vegetarian burrito made with smoked tofu.
“Our team is taking aggressive steps to ensure the safety of our staff and guests,” Mora says. “We are feeling very grateful to be back after such difficult months of uncertainty.”
While the food stall and central food hall are reopen for dine-in service, Mora and Santiago encourage people to order takeout from El Super Pan and the El Burro Pollo popup for now. People can order online or for delivery via UberEats. Curbside pickup is also available in the 30-minute parking area near the North Avenue entrance to Ponce City Market.
