HOBNOB Distills Its Focus And Brings Bourbon to the Forefront
Midtown Restaurant Rolls Out New Bourbon Menu, Signature Cocktails
and Tavern Specialties
ATLANTA (March 9, 2016) - Entering its sixth year of business in Midtown, HOBNOB has recently become a much more "spirited" place. That's because co-owner Sean Yeremyan and his team have assembled one of the most comprehensive bourbon lists in the city, featuring 35 brands of bourbon and over 60 bourbon drinks, with a plan to continually offer off-list surprises. Fine Southern additions to the menu of refined tavern fare and several decor upgrades round out the reasons to pay a visit to HOBNOB today.
“We want our guests to experience some of the best bourbon and beer that the South has to offer," says Yeremyan. "With our new drink menu, we're keeping our focus on local craft beers and putting a new emphasis on the distinguished bourbons of our region and elsewhere. Whiskey lovers are going to find a lot to love as we span the map from Kentucky’s Jesse James Outlaw and California’s Tatoosh to South Carolina’s Virgil Kaine brands and Georgia’s own The 13 Colony Southern bourbon."
HOBNOB revelers can celebrate by ordering the tavern’s new signature cocktail, the 1551 HOBNOB Old Fashioned featuring Woodford Reserve bourbon, a lemon peel muddled with orange bitters and Luxardo liqueur. It's garnished with cinnamon and hickory root that are torched in the glass, holding the smoke inside and giving the drink a unique, smoky flavor profile.
Also new to the drink menu is the Southern inspired Charleston Brown Water Society Punch made with Buffalo Trace bourbon, dark rum, orange juice, honey and Demerara. It's a cocktail perfect for sipping on a front porch or perhaps a Midtown patio.
HOBNOB's focus on high-quality food served in a casual, friendly atmosphere continues. Recent creative additions to the menu include the following:
- Dixie Dip - collard greens with beer cheese dip
- Duo of Spreads - hummus and goat cheese served with carrots, celery and fresh baked pizza crust points
- Sampler Platter - chicken tenders, fish and chips, warm pretzels with beer cheese dip, fried green tomatoes, Southern spring rolls and a sampler of homemade sauces
- Super Food Plate - Mother Nature salad, fried green tomatoes and sautéed seasonal vegetables
- Flat Iron Steak - 8 oz. choice 100% Angus steak served with Cabernet gravy, onion ring, buttermilk mashed potatoes and collard greens
For weekend warriors in search of a delicious hangover remedy, Yeremyan has added tiramisu French toast and loaded breakfast sliders to the brunch menu. Bourbon pecan pie, tiramisu and a Kahlua chocolate tufty crunch now offer a sweet finish to any meal.
HOBNOB regulars will note the restaurant's exterior has been enhanced with a border of tin roofing on the patio. Framed beer and bourbon patent documents and tabletop candles at dinner add to HOBNOB’s new bourbon-soaked farmhouse atmosphere.
Located at 1551 Piedmont Ave. NE in Midtown, HOBNOB serves lunch weekdays, dinner nightly and brunch on the weekends. For more information, call 404-968-2288 or visit hobnobatlanta.com.
