2020’s Most Anticipated New Restaurants

Amber Randhawa What's Happening Around Atlanta

Atlanta magazine has compiled a list of the most highly anticipated restaurants that will be opening across the city this year, and we can’t wait to try every one of them! The BeltLine will be home to many of these new establishments, several of which will be brought to you by familiar names in the Atlanta restaurant scene.

The full list of 20 restaurants can be found on at Atlanta Magazine here, but we’ve also compiled a short list of some of the ones we are most excited about!


Chattahoochee Food Works

Famed Travel Channel host and chef Andrew Zimmern is one of the driving forces behind this 16,000-square-foot market and 30-vendor food hall set to open on the edge of Underwood Hills. According to Zimmern, the complex will include international fare, a test kitchen, chef events, and more. Look for it in the first half of the year. 1295 Chattahoochee Avenue Northwest

Eugene and Elizabeth’s

If you have been missing Restaurant Eugene, which closed last August after 15 years in Buckhead, you’ll be happy to know that Linton Hopkins’s fine dining establishment will reopen soon, in a more casual, a la carte version called Eugene and Elizabeth’s. A specific location is still unknown, but look for more information to be released soon!

Rodney Scott’s Whole Hog BBQ

You won’t have to drive all the way to the coast for award-winning South Carolina-style barbecue anymore! Rodney Scott, the James Beard Award-winning Charleston pitmaster is opening an Atlanta outpost in Adair Park. Look for whole hog barbecue cooked over live wood coals, along with chicken, ribs, and more. 680 Murphy Avenue Southwest
