Can Atlanta one-up the landmark openings in 2015 that included Krog Street Market, Ponce City Market, and Staplehouse? Unlikely, based on what's been announced, though there will be plenty that's new to eat and drink in the coming months.
Meherwan Irani, founder of Chai Pani in Decatur and Asheville, is opening a food stall in Ponce City Market called Boti, the name for a marinated, grilled, and skewered chunk of meat. “With Chai Pani, we introduced Indian street food to America, but there are subcultures of it,” he explains. “At Chai Pani, it was about chaat—bright, crispy, multi-textured snacks like samosas or pakoras. Boti is about the street grill at night when the fires start blazing. It’s a style of kebab—lamb, beef, chicken, fish. It’s meat on a stick.”
