Plant to Plate in the Garden

The Atlanta Botanical Garden and celebrated chef Linton Hopkins are partnering to serve visitors a
unique plant-to-plate concept in dining while experiencing a world-class destination.
Hopkins’ Resurgens Hospitality Group, which includes Restaurant Eugene and Holeman and Finch Public House, will assume management of the Garden’s café in November. The Café at Linton’s will offer a signature menu based on natural meats and fresh, local produce, including fruits, vegetables and herbs grown at the Garden. In late 2015, the café will be replaced with a new full-service restaurant, Linton’s in the Garden, a two-story contemporary glass structure to be built at the hub of the Garden.

“We wanted to create a new model for Atlanta in which the dining experience would match the Garden’s beautiful displays and visitor experience,” Garden President & CEO Mary Pat Matheson said. “The timing could not be more right for creating a food destination that will be unparalleled at a cultural institution in Atlanta.”
