The owners behind indoor-outdoor bar and restaurant Barn Booze and Bites in Dunwoody Village plan to open a second restaurant later this fall called Morty’s Meat and Supply, which is currently operating there as a food truck.
Part of a restaurant revitalization currently underway in Dunwoody Village, owner David Abes and Dash Hospitality Concepts culinary director chef Nick Leahy (Nick’s Westside, the Usual) hope to offer a spin on the Southern meat-and-three at Morty’s Meat and Supply. For those unfamiliar with meat-and-three restaurants, the menu lists a choice of meats, like fried chicken, country fried steak, or meatloaf, paired with a choice of three starchy vegetable sides, such as collards, lima beans, or mac and cheese.
Leahy’s menu will lean into smoked meats and seafood, rather than just fried fare, along with options for both classic and less traditional Southern sides with a DIY “sauce station” for dressing up the plate. Look for specials, too, including pastrami, smoked salmon, and bologna made at the restaurant.
Design plans for the 60-seat restaurant call for an indoor-outdoor vibe, with garage doors opening to the outside and two patios out front. The bar will feature 24 taps offering beer, wine, and cocktails on draft. A “grab and go” section is also in the works, where people can purchase prepared sides and other dishes.
