ATLANTA - The Atlanta Braves Wednesday announced The Battery Atlanta will be the name of their mixed-use development adjacent to SunTrust Park, the new home of the Braves.
In addition to revealing the development’s moniker, the Braves announced the first wave of restaurants that will be featured: Antico Pizza, Cru Food and Wine Bar, Tomahawk Taproom featuring Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, Superica and a steak house concept with Chef Linton Hopkins.
"We believe that The Battery Atlanta will be the preeminent sports, lifestyle and entertainment destination in America," said Terry McGuirk, chairman and CEO of the Braves. "This development will bring an energy to the area that will provide our guests with top-notch shopping, dining and living options.”
“The Battery Atlanta will become one of those places in Atlanta that has its own heartbeat and vibe,” said Derek Schiller, Braves executive vice president of sales and marketing. “Adding the talent of people like Ford Fry, Linton Hopkins and Giovanni DiPalma as well as Fox Bros. and Cru Food and Wine Bar to the list of partners we’ve already brought to this project will help us create a place that is distinct to this market.”
The Battery Atlanta will be home to a host of unique dining options that will satisfy any palate. Two of those establishments will be helmed by a couple of award-winning Atlanta food icons: Ford Fry and Linton Hopkins.
