Chicken + Beer (ATL)
Located in the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Chicken + Beer — the partnership of Jackmont Hospitality and Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges — offers a menu that would exemplify the cultural and social landscape of Atlanta's cuisine. From the IPA Double Cheeseburger and the Battered Catfish with Edamame Succotash to Luda's Chicken and Waffles with a Bourbon Maple Syrup, Chicken + Beer, this is not your average airport food. Take the Beer Battered Catfish; It's lightly crusted with hints of Sweetwater Brewery’s Hop Hash double IPA, served atop a parsnip puree and tomato corn relish spiked with house-made ale mustard. "I live in Atlanta as an entertainer and entrepreneur so being able to give back and support the city that has supported me means a lot," says 'Ludacris'. "We opened in November and now we have people going out of their way to get to Chicken + Beer at Concourse D no matter where they're traveling."
