Newk’s Eatery is coming to Midtown as the Jackson, Miss.-based casual eatery plans to open in the shuttered Yes Home space at the Shops at Metropolis (SAM). A late spring opening date is targeted at 921 Peachtree Street.
Real estate firm Jamestown made the announcement Monday via a press release. A neighbor to the recently opened La Tagliatella at Peachtree and 8th streets, Newk’s Eatery is a fast casual concept pioneered by the founders of McAlister’s Deli, a quick service restaurant specializing in hand-crafted sandwiches, spuds and other made-to-order menu items. Newk’s franchises are in 11 other states, and this will reportedly be the company’s fifth location in Georgia.
According to the release, the restaurant offers a variety of tasty choices with menu items that include crisp tossed salads, personal pizzas and toasted specialty sandwiches, along with a classic selection of homemade desserts and coffee for a sweet ending. Newk’s serves customers through in-café dining and to-go options. And, for those hungry and in a hurry, Newk’s also offers a grab-n-go option, where ready-to-go sandwiches and salads are available for immediate pick-up, as early as 9 a.m.
From office lunches to family get-togethers, Newk’s Catering menu can supply parties with deli-style sandwich platters, signature boxed salads and lunches as well as a number of specialty trays.
“We have been anxiously waiting to open Newk’s Eatery in Midtown,” Keith Estapa and Missy Moon, co-owners of Georgia’s newest location, said in a release. “SAM is an ideal environment for Newk’s, where we can provide professionals and residents of Midtown a fresh, made-from-scratch option that is only steps away from their home or office.”
