Celebrity chef Hugh Acheson is set to open his third dining concept at The Battery.
The restaurant — Acheson’s eighth — will be called Achie’s and located in the Omni Hotel at The Battery Atlanta, set to open in early 2018.
Achie’s “will provide world-class, Southern-inspired fare featuring breakfast, lunch and dinner menus that offer a variety of dishes that emphasize quality-sourced ingredients,” according to a press release.
“Chef Acheson is one of the best in the business and we know his storied career, inventive mix of culinary style and fresh approach to Southern food will produce an unforgettable dining experience at Achie’s,” said Ramon Reyes, general manager of the Omni Hotel at The Battery Atlanta in a prepared statement.”

The breakfast menu will feature items such as the Perfect French Omelet made with Boursin, chives, and leeks and buttermilk biscuits made with Benton’s Country Ham, poached eggs and béarnaise sauce. Lunch will offer small plates including Pate de Campagne made with grilled bread, mustard and pickles and larger dishes including a superfood plate made with hanger steak, edamame salsa verde, charred green onions, pickled collard greens, lentils, shaved radish, sauerkraut and quinoa fritter. Dinner dishes will include flounder crudo with peanuts, cucumber, pickled chiles, and watercress; Georgia shrimp & grits; and poached salmon with Brussels sprouts and whipped celery root. In addition, the menu will offer “plates for two” such as spatch-cocked local chicken with pickled raisins and lemon herb gravy and a double bone-in pork chop with thyme and apple butter.
“Achie’s will offer two things very dear to my heart – delicious coffee and spectacular views of some fine baseball, so fans will feel like they are right in the action,” said Acheson in a prepared statement.
Achie’s will be Acheson’s third concept at The Battery Atlanta, joining First & Third Hot Dog and Sausage Shack, as well as his consultation on the opening of Punch Bowl Social, which will open late 2017. Acheson also owns Empire State South and Spiller Park Coffee in Atlanta and 5&10 and The National in Athens.
Additional culinary offerings at the Omni, which is set to open in early 2018, will include a lobby wine bar and café, along with the hotel’s rooftop pool bar and grill.
