Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall
, the patio-centric restaurant and bar just off the Beltline, is scheduled to open in the next two weeks across from Rathbun Steak at mile marker 9.25. Led by restaurateur Michael Lennox and executive chef Robert Lupo—formerly of Leon’s Full Service
—, Ladybird will focus on sharable dishes previously described as “campfire cuisine.” Kyle Schmidt of King + Duke
will serve as sous chef. The initial menu will offer approximately twenty items that will change based on local availability.
