4 Atlanta Pop-Up Restaurants You Need Know

4 Atlanta Pop-Up Restaurants You Need Know


We're big fans of the pop-up concept here at G&G - there's something about the spontaneity of it that keeps us wanting more! We've rounded up 4 of our favorite pop-up dining experiences in Atlanta so that you can try 'em out too. (Make sure to get there early!)


1. Eat Me Speak Me at SOS Tiki Bar

Who: Chef Jarrett Stieber

What: A menu reflecting local seasonality, changing weekly

When: Wednesdays through Saturdays, 6 to 11 p.m.

Where: SOS Tiki Bar in Decatur at 340 Church St.

Why: Not only does Eat Me Speak Me happen in a bar with maybe the most fun ambiance out there (just Google photos of SOS Tiki Bar - and yes, there are drinks served lit on fire), but it's also headed by the insanely creative Chef Jarrett Stieber. You'll see some of Jarrett's fun & funky recipes on the G&G menu from time to time! 


2. Anju at Revelator

Who: Chef James Murphy

What: Korean

When: Thursdays, 6 to 10 p.m., Fridays & Saturdays, 6 to 11 p.m.

Where: Revelator Coffee (formerly Octane) in Grant Park at 437 Memorial Drive SE

Why: 'Anju' translates to 'food consumed with alcohol' in Korean, and that sure sounds like the start to a good time! Chef James's Anju launched just yesterday in the newly-transformed Revelator (previously Octane Coffee), and Chef already knows what he's doing--Murphy was formerly of Gaja in East Atlanta Village, as well as Kimball House in Decatur.


3. Terminus City BBQ at ASW Distillery

Who: Chef Kevin Gillespie

What: BBQ

When: Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. 'til the BBQ runs out

Where: ASW Distillery in Buckhead at 199 Armour Drive NE, Suite C

Why: This is BBQ is made by none other than former Top Chef contestant & master chef himself, Kevin Gillespie. You've enjoyed his 30-minute-or-less recipes on our menu before, and now you can enjoy his slow-roasted barbecue for a completely different experience. (Though your taste buds will be just as delighted!)


4. Talat Market at Gato

Who: Chef Parnass Savang

What: Thai, designed for sharing family-style

When: Fridays through Sundays, 6 to 10 p.m.

Where: Gato in Candler Park at 1660 McLendon Avenue NE

Why: Chef Parnass was noted with the Atlanta Magazine honor of Talat Market being voted as Atlanta's Best Pop-Up this past year, and this award doesn't mean nothing. His Thai dishes are lighter than what you'd find at your typical Thai restaurant, and Parnass's talent shines through in each and every one of his dishes.
