Chef Justin Dixon landed a long-term residency for his Atlanta-centric sandwich pop-up Humble Mumble at Tech Square food hall the Collective at Coda in Midtown. Named for Dixon’s favorite Outkast song, and serving sack lunch sandwiches by day and what he refers to as “Atlanta cuisine” by night (think lamb meatball Spaghetti-Os and wings glazed with chili flakes, lemongrass, and lime), the stall should open Friday, November 12, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., for dine-in, takeout, and delivery. No word on how long Humble Mumble sticks around at the Collective or the menu, but regulars to Dixon’s pop-up can count on sandwiches like the Italian Job stuffed with salami, prosciutto, and soppressata on ciabatta bread and the Senator From Vermont with maple glazed ham, Vermont cheddar, apples, and pickled red onions.
Earlier this summer, Dixon departed his position as the opening chef of Wonderkid in Reynoldtown to focus on growing Humble Mumble, which pops up at restaurants and bars like Dead End Drinks and Parlor. His previous kitchen stints include the Shed at Glenwood, Local Three, and Bully Boy. Follow Humble Mumble on Instagram for new pop-up dates and menus.
Humble Mumble joins permanent food stalls Aviva by Kameel, Poke Burri, and El Burro Pollo now open at the Collective. SmoQue Burger and By Weights and Measures, a cocktail bar from the owners of Georgia Beer Garden and Joystick, open next year. [IG]
Yes, that was Mick Jagger dining at Miller Union last night
After going unrecognized at a dive bar in Charlotte earlier this fall, legendary Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger was spotted dining at Miller Union in Atlanta on Tuesday night. Chef Steven Satterfield, who is preparing to celebrate the restaurant’s 12th anniversary, even posed for a quick photo op with a smiling Jagger. The Stones are in town for a concert at the Benz on November 11. The rock-and-roller also made stops at Fat Matt’s Rib Shack and the Clermont Lounge during his tour de Atlanna. No word as to whether he took part in Tuesday night karaoke at the Clermont or met Atlanta’s own legend, Blondie. [IG]
