The world's busiest airport just got a whole lot more delicious in time for the hectic holiday travel season.
Jackmont Hospitality, Inc announced the grand opening of Chicken+Beer at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport Friday. The brainchild of well-known entertainer and restaurateur Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, the restaurant is named after the successful rapper and Atlanta native's third album, which was released in 2003.
The restaurant, which will serve up Southern-style comfort food and local beers, opened in Concourse D and marks Jackmont Hospitality's second independently developed restaurant concept at the airport, joining One Flew South at Concourse E.
"For over 20 years, the Jackmont Hospitality name has been synonymous with delicious food, warm hospitality and a steadfast commitment to excellence," said Jackmont Hospitality co-founder and CEO Daniel Halpern in a statement. "Chris is the quintessential advocate for Atlanta's rich culture and together we aim to introduce Chicken+Beer as a reflection of the city's character."
