Celebrity chef Todd English opening restaurant at the Battery Atlanta
Atlanta Journal Constitution | February 21, 2017

The Battery entertainment complex adjacent to the Atlanta Braves new stadium SunTrust Park will offer plenty of options for dining and drinking. Now, there is one more reason to hit up The Battery before, during and after the game: Celebrity chef Todd English has signed on to open a restaurant.

The Atlanta-raised English is coming back to his roots and opening Todd English Tavern. It is one of three concepts within a larger venue called Live! at the Battery. The other two concepts include PBR Atlanta (which will be similar to its sister site in St. Louis' Ballpark Village adjacent to Busch Stadium) as well as an entertainment-plex called Sports & Social. Live! at the Battery will be owned by the Cordish Companies and operated by ECI, its subsidiary that manages restaurants, bars and clubs.

At Todd English Tavern, dishes will have a Southern heritage with an international influence. The menu will include a number of shareable offerings as well as items like an upscale riff on an oyster po' boy of corn pone with truffles and oysters. The signature burger will be a pork and truffle version with pork shoulder confit served with fennel-apple salad. English also stated that some pub grub would be tweaked as vegetable-based offerings, such as cauliflower tater tots.
