H&F at Turner and Slice & Pint at Everybody’s

H&F at Turner Field

Chef Linton Hopkins confirmed this morning that Holeman & Finch will be serving up the famous H&F cheeseburger at three specially designed concession stands at Turner Field.

“For me, this is a story about being an Atlantan and cooking cheeseburgers in Atlanta for my team, the Atlanta Braves, while I drink Coca-Cola, which is my city’s beverage,” Hopkins said. “I see it as a story about Atlanta first.”

Hopkins explained that he’s been on a fast track to get the stands ready to go by opening day, April 1, which he pointed out is April Fool’s Day.

The three stands will be located near left field, right field and behind home plate in areas that will be accessible to everyone in the park. Only three items will be available, the H&F cheeseburger and fries and Coca-Cola in the aluminum contour bottle.

“It’s our bun from our bakery, it’s the mustard, pickles and ketchup we make, and our special burger grind, at the same price, $12, as at Holeman and Finch, except there will be many more available,” Hopkins said.

“I grew up as a Braves fan. I was there when Hank Aaron hit 715. I just love baseball parks, they are like cathedrals to me. So I’m looking forward to being able to be there to watch a game, eat a cheeseburger, drink a Coke, and cheer my team. That’s classic American stuff.”

Slice & Pint to replace Everybody’s

The news of Everybody’s closing after 41 years was still a hot topic when word surfaced that Crawford Moran, the owner and brewmaster of 5 Seasons Brewing Co., was set to open a new brewery restaurant, Slice & Pint, in its place.

This morning, Moran was shaking his head over the source of the report, published yesterday on the Tomorrow’s News Today blog. But he confirmed that he will be renovating the Everybody’s space and opening a new pizza restaurant and beer bar concept in the next few months. He plans to install an on-site brewery as soon as possible after that, probably in another six months.

“My role and involvement with 5 Seasons is not changing in any way,” Moran stressed. “I want to make that clear. I love 5 Seasons. I have the best partner [David Larkworthy] that anybody could ask for, and we have a great staff.”

As for Slice & Pint, Moran said the germ of the idea goes back to when he closed Dogwood Brewing Co. in 2004.

“This is a great opportunity in a great neighborhood and it will be fun,” Moran said. “After Dogwood, I was planning on doing a pizza brewpub, then I joined with Dave at 5 Seasons. But the idea has always been in the back of my brain.”

Moran said he will be hiring a pizza maker and a brewer, and that handcrafted pizza and handcrafted beer will be central to the concept.

“We’re going to serve the four basic food groups,” Moran said. “That’s beer, pizza, chocolate, and other stuff.”

In other Everybody’s-related news, Steady Hand Pour House, which was subleasing space from Everybody’s, will be closing, as well . Look for Steady Hand to restart their mobile coffee van, Rattletrap, in the interim.

$12 for a Holeman and Finch burger with fries AT A SPORTS STADIUM is a remarkably good deal. This is really cool. This should put us on the map as far as ball park food goes.

Just what Emory Village needs……. a 4th pizza/italian place. There is plenty in the area to get a beer. There is Dominos, Saba, and Romeo’s already for pizza. Why not do something original???

I only hope that B is kidding when they compare Dominoes to anything Crawford Moran will open. Especially the remark about the beer. There is no place near the Emory Village to get a fresh brewed beer.

Again, I hope B is joking.

What do you get for $12

The quote in the article only mentions the burger and burger condiments. While you do get fries for your $12 at H&F proper, I am led to believe that your $12 at Turner Field just gets you a burger. Fries are specfically mentioned as a separate menu item in the article.

“Only three items will be available, the H&F cheeseburger and fries and Coca-Cola in the aluminum contour bottle.”

The fact that it is written like that and not cheeseburger, fries, and Coca-cola also leads me to believe you get fries with the burger.

Also he says that it will be the same price as at H&F. So we shall see.

To be a little more clear, Linton’s quote is accurate, but he did mention that they are still figuring out if the fries will be included in the price. He also said that the ‘home plate’ stand won’t have a fryer, so… This is very much a work in progress and a close race to be ready by opening day. I think we can take him at his word that the burger will be $12. And for the quality, compared to some other things you can blow major $$ on at most major league parks, including bad beer, it seems like a pretty good bargain to me.

H&F burgers are the Ted will be awesome. $12 for this quality of food is a steal (pun intended). Now, I just need to remember to bring a few high-grav beers in with me, buy my $1 ticket, and I’ll be living the dream for under $20. #itsallaboutvalue

A burger place without a fryer?

Fryer at two out of three stands. Can’t make it work in the in the one area. I’m signing off now to search out one of those beers Breeze speaks of. Play nice you crazy kids. And thanks for the questions and comments!

If Hopkins is saying the same price as at the restaurant, then the fries would be included with the burger for the $12 price. Drink would be extra. As to no fryer at the home plate location, they could always cook lots of fries at the other spots and take them over and keep them hot. Not ideal, but hey, you’re at a ballgame getting high-quality burger and fries for $12.

Does the opening date of April Fools Day not give ANYONE pause here?

B: Since you listed Dominos as a pizza place, your taste in deciphering good…no..great pizza shall be ignored. When you had your Dominos, did you get it with thin or thick cardboard…er…I mean crust?

Bring on the beer! Bring on some new dishes. DO NOT TOUCH THE PIZZA RECIPE!!!!

That’s pretty condescending isn’t it?

I’m glad they’ll serve more than 25 burgers per day now. I hope it lives up to the hype. Until I try one from H&F, Five Guys in still the best burger in town.

Whoa Nellie…..Bobby’s Cheesburgers are much better than H&F and Five Guys. Why not get a Bobby’s Cheeseburger, much better than both of the aforementioned.

Just because I listed Dominos as a pizza place doesn’t have anything to do with my ability to discern good pizza. I just listed it. I’ve never eaten there. I didn’t say it was AWESOME! But, this area is full of college kids who probably won’t be buying fancy pizza when there are 3 other places. I only meant to say that why couldn’t someone with an original thought or idea for a restaurant come into the Everybody’s vacant space instead of a 4th pizza and beer place. It doesn’t matter that the pizza might be better and the beer fresher. To college kids does it really matter? It’s a 4th pizza place.

Do they still allow you to bring in food at Turner Field? I remember bringing in chili burgers and onion rings from the Varsity.

I can’t imagine why anyone would want to bring in food when you could have the pleasure of spending $20 on a burger, fries and coke. Eyeroll.
