A Ponce City Market favorite is headed to Braves Country.

Chef Hector Santiago will open the second location of his Latino sandwich concept El Super Pan in spring 2018 in The Battery, the sports and entertainment destination anchored by SunTrust Park, the new home of the Atlanta Braves.

The menu will feature dishes inspired by Santiago’s home country of Puerto Rico, including sandwiches such as Cubano Mixto, snacks such as the pork belly buns, sides, mofongos, desserts such as organic egg flan and bacon-guava shortbread cookies, Cuban coffee and other Spanish Caribbean classics.

In addition, a “Menu del Dia” will be available, featuring a rotating list of seasonal, plates.

The cocktail program, will offer mixed drinks, custom cocktails including piña coladas, pisco sours and caipirinhas and spirits with a focus on Santiago’s Latin American favorite rums, mezcal, pisco and cachaca. Also look for Latin beers including Imperial, Modelo and Presidente, as well as local brews available on tap and in cans. A small list of wines will feature bottles and keg wines from Argentina, Chile, and Spain.

The 4200-square-foot will feature El Super Pan’s menu dine-in or to-go, with seating for about 90 people at tables and a bar. A private dining room with its own bar will seat 40 people and and an inner patio will also seat about 40.

The restaurant and bar will be open for lunch and dinner daily.

Santiago opened El Super Pan in Ponce City Market in 2015. Prior to that, he ran the now-shuttered Virigina-Highland spot Pura Vida and helmed the kitchen at Abbatoir in West Midtown. He was also a contestant on Season 6 of the Bravo show “Top Chef.”

El Super Pan will join a host of other high profile openings at The Battery and SunTrust Park, including Hugh Acheson-affiliated First & Third, Achie’s and Punch Bowl Social; Mark Taft’s FEED Fried Chicken and Such; and Linton Hopkins’ C. Ellet’s.
