ATLANTA -- Visitors to Hartsfield Jackson International Airport can now celebrate the Atlanta Braves and get a bite to eat between flights.
The Braves have partnered with longtime Atlanta restaurant giant Goldberg's Deli to open the Atlanta Braves All-Star Grill on concourse D at the airport. The restaurant, near gate D8, opened April 18 and had its official ribbon cutting on Thursday.
"We were in the unique position to partner with one of Atlanta's most popular restaurants," said Braves Executive Vice President of Business Operations, Mike Plant. "This is a fantastic way to extend our brand to Braves fans coming and going through Hartsfield Jackson International Airport, the busiest airport in the world."
The 1,500 square foot restaurant features a replica Turner Field look, complete with a brick facade bar, leather glove booths, dugout bench seating and a full menu. Braves memorabilia and graphics are featured throughout the restaurant and Braves merchandise is available to purchase.
"We are honored to be part of the best airport concessions program in the country, at the busiest airport in the world," said Wayne Saxe, Chairman and CEO of Goldbergs Concessions Corporation. "It is exciting to partner with the most beloved sports team in Atlanta and bring a signature local flavor that will add to the experience of travelers passing through Atlanta."
The space seats 50 people and feature menu items like the Bases Loaded Foot Long Hot Dog -- with chili, coleslaw, relish, onions, cheese and jalapenos.
