Farm to Burger
Atlanta-based chain Farm Burger brings its grass-fed concept to Grant Park
If you’re a burger connoisseur, chances are you’ve devoured a grass-fed beef or vegetarian quinoa burger with a side of pimento cheese fries at Farm Burger.
The Atlanta-based chain opened its first outpost in Decatur in 2010 and has since expanded across the country, opening storefronts throughout Atlanta, as well as in California, North Carolina, Alabama and Tennessee.
A regular vendor at the Grant Park Farmers Market, the popular spot is finally making a permanent home in the neighborhood. Its latest location is in the residential development The George slated to open early this year at 275 Memorial Drive. (Named after Georgia Tech Basketball Hall of Famer Nicholas George Azar, the multi-purpose building houses more than 100 apartment units and offers views of both Midtown and Downtown.)
“We have been looking for a spot in Grant Park for some time,” says Farm Burger Co-Founder George Frangos. “The George offers us a great location, a perfect intimate-sized space and parking.”
The new Farm Burger spans 1,800 square feet on the ground floor, where it will serve its signature grass fed burgers, as well as market salads, Morelli’s ice cream milkshakes and local craft beer. A rotating roster of specials will be unique to the location.
“With all our Farm Burgers, we enjoy becoming part of our communities,” says Frangos. “Over the years of participating at the Grant Park Farmers Market, we’ve gotten to know so many people and families, and we’re excited to be part of their community every day.”
