A 10,000-square-foot restaurant is joining High Street in Dunwoody next spring. Called the Hampton Social, it’s a coastal-inspired spot with 11 locations in Illinois, Florida, and Tennessee. Founded in Chicago in 2015, it boasts a “rosé all day” mentality that focuses on social engagement. However, it’s not all about the ‘gram. With James Beard award-winning chef Rick Tramanto behind the culinary program, the food should stand on its own.
“Atlanta is an incredible food city I’ve been eyeing for almost three years now. With the development of High Street, I knew this location would be the perfect opportunity to bring our style of cuisine to the Georgia community,” says Brad Parker, CEO of Parker Hospitality, the company behind the Hampton Social.
The style of cuisine he’s referencing is fresh and light. Lunch and dinner offerings include a Maine-style lobster roll, grilled octopus, and a seafood tower. For brunch (offered on the weekends), expect crab cake Benedict, bang bang chicken, and monkey bread. Beverages are designed with aesthetics, as well as flavor, in mind. Zero-proof cocktails are available—including a sparkling rosé. Hand-crafted cocktails can be ordered by the glass or the seashell, a 16-20-ounce portion meant for sharing. The “I Glitterally Can’t” is made with strawberry gin, sparkling rosé, Passao passionfruit, lemon, and glitter. The Starlet Espresso Martini features Selvarey chocolate, kahlua, La Colombe, and edible gold glitter. When the summer heat sets in, Hampton Frosé is there.
The Hampton Social will seat nearly 140 guests inside and 250 on the two covered patios. The decor is inspired by the “long days of summer,” Parker says, noting that each location is unique in appearance. It will sport a blue-and-white motif with wicker light fixtures and nautical elements.
Reservations will be available on OpenTable beginning in spring 2024.
