Braves New World

The Braves have moved. No, not that move. This move is closer in town—Peachtree Street to be exact. Here, you’ll find the Downtown home of the Atlanta Braves All Star Grill, a massive iteration of the brand’s airport resto made for baseball revelery at its finest. The sports bar celebrating America’s Team comes from a partnership between Goldbergs Group (Goldbergs Bagels) and the Braves, blending their all-star heritage with delicious ballpark favorites prepared with gourmet flair.

Not just a casual sports bar, it’s as if the space was designed by Bobby Cox himself. Screaming hometown pride, the 8,000-square-foot space in the historic 200 Peachtree building will have you chopping from the moment you walk in. From the 25 high-def televisions, numbered stadium bar chairs and catcher’s mitt-shaped booths to the on-site apparel shop and pitching cage in which to practice your fastball between courses, it’s like Turner Field and your favorite sports bar had a baby. Custom artwork and a baseball equipment-filled Braves “A” logo class up the space with a curated collection of authentic memorabilia that turns the eatery into a living museum—where you watch sports, drink beer and feast.

Speaking of eats, chef Marshall Rogers has brought together a generous collection of stadium fare with fine-dining refinement. A starting lineup of appetizers like sliders, nachos and chicken wings that come crispy, baked and smoked from the in-house Southern Pride smoker are expected intros. The collection of certified Angus beef two-handed ball park burgers—like the Ultimate Cheese Burger (blue cheese, aged cheddar, crispy onions, candied bacon, Hotlanta sauce) and the Breakfast Burger (cheddar, hash browns, fried egg, sausage gravy, biscuit bun)—are home run hitters. The gourmet aspect to All Star Grill is also seen in thoughtful offerings like the Georgia Peach Salad (caramelized peaches, field greens, spiced pecans, goat cheese, red onions, Champagne vanilla vinaigrette); cedar plank salmon with vegetable succotash and sweet corn cream; and slow smoked beef brisket with sweet potato and Brussels sprout hash. Batting cleanup is a selection of sandwiches, hot dogs, flatbreads and even a weekend brunch. From there, things get frothy with a selection of wines and local and domestic brews with sizes ranging from 16 ounces to a whopping 96-ounce beer tower for serving yourself tableside. Behind the bar, signature baseball and locally themed cocktails like the Tomahawk Chop (frozen strawberry, lime, rum, Blue Curacao), The Georgia Peach (vodka, peach schnapps, Grand Marnier, OJ, Sprite) and The Peachtree (bourbon, soda, bitters) get the crowd out of their seats.

So whether you want to avoid the bustle on gameday and enjoy a chef-driven menu of your favorite stadium eats or just catch your favorite games for after-work happy hour, the Atlanta Braves All Star Grill hits it out of the park. Chop on.
