PEACHTREE CORNERS — Willie Degel, founder of the New York-based Uncle Jack’s restaurant group and former host of Food Network’s ‘Restaurant Stakeout,’ will be opening a second Uncle Jack’s Meat House in metropolitan Atlanta in mid-2020. Degel has signed a 10-year lease to anchor the final commercial building in the Peachtree Corners Town Center development.
Degel opened his first Atlanta location in 2016 in Duluth, near the Infinite Energy Arena, with total indoor/outdoor seating for 150 including an 80-seat the outdoor patio. The new Peachtree Corners restaurant will seat 225 guests in a space including a 4,000-sq-foot dining room, enclosed 1,000-square-foot patio, 800-square-foot umbrella patio, 300-square-foot front bar lounge/outdoor café, and private party room.
The bar-and-grill-style menu will feature scratch-made appetizers, salads, burgers, sandwiches and steak specialties including American Wagyu and Kobe cuts, including signature dishes such as the Ooey Goey Mooey Burger and seafood-based Pot from the Duluth location, along with new lunch options for lighter eating.
As at the Duluth location, the decor will replicate the look and feel of a 1900s building in New York’s Meatpacking District to provide a fun dining environment.
Unusual appointments will include meat hooks, custom light fixtures incorporating butchers’ cleavers and chefs’ knives, custom wallpaper featuring archival butcher photos, and flying pigs and steer heads mounted on the walls.
