Farm Burger and Morelli’s Gourmet Ice Cream coming to Dunwoody

Exciting news for those of us living outside the Perimeter…

Yesterday, Tomorrow’s News Today announced that Farm Burger and Morelli’s Gourmet Ice Cream are teaming up to expand to Dunwoody.

George Frangos, owner of Farm Burger, confirmed the news. Farm Burger and Morelli’s will move into a spot in the Georgetown Shopping Center off of Chamblee Dunwoody Road. According to Frangos, the two eateries should open close to Labor Day.

The size of the Dunwoody space prompted the FarmBurger/Morelli’s collaboration. Frangos says, “This is a larger restaurant for us, which dictated a partnership.” Frangos connected with Donald Sargent, owner of Morelli’s, through a real estate broker, who became familiar with both parties through their (unsuccessful) airport bidding packages.

You can expect the Dunwoody Farm Burger menu to be similar to that of the Decatur and Buckhead locations. As for future plans, Frangos says they have “ no grand plans” for expansion but they are “always looking.”

…there’s a Farmburger in Buckhead? ( looks it up on the map) Oh. No wonder no one knew.

Living ITP off Chamblee Dunwoody (between 285 and PIB), I can’t wait for this. More restaurants need to look into that area, as in town residents are moving there in droves – proximity to buckhead, easy access to highways, and affordable real estate are helping. Good to see it. Now if only Chamblee will put sidewalks on Chamblee-Dunwoody Road…that would be nice.

Morelli’s = best ice cream in Atlanta. Salted Caramel – my favorite! Can’t wait.

just because you’re a no one doesn’t mean the rest of us are, Vicki

[...] The restaurant will share roughly 4,000 square feet with Morelli’s Gourmet Ice Cream, according to an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. [...]

Farm Burger is delicious and I am looking forward to welcoming them to my neighborhood. They offer gluten-free buns, which means my wife can enjoy them, but their other locations do not offer gluten-free fries. I hope they consider installing a dedicated gluten-free fryer at the new location so they can persuade us to go there instead of Yeah! Burger which is a bit of a drive for a burger.
