Todd English Tavern strikes out at The Battery at SunTrust Park

A restaurant from celebrity chef Todd English has closed its doors.

English, who grew up in Atlanta and graduated from the Galloway School in the 1970s, opened Todd English Tavern in April 2017 at The Battery at SunTrust Park, The restaurant was part of Live at the Battery Atlanta, which also includes the still-open Sport & Social and PBR Atlanta.

It’s unclear exactly when the restaurant closed, but a voicemail message at the restaurant confirms that it has been folded into Sports & Social, and Tomorrow’s News Today reports it likely closed before the Atlanta Braves home opener on March 29.

Todd English Tavern’s menu featured dishes made with Southern and international influences including Georgia shrimp with creamed corn polenta, and a trio of pork belly, shoulder and tenderloin served family-style. In an interview with AJC food editor Ligaya Figueras last year, English referred to the project as a “neo-tavern” because it reflected a style of cooking that uses authentic techniques yet is “not afraid of blending” from “the melting pot of the world that we live in.”

AJC food writer Wyatt Williams gave the eatery 1 out of 4 stars in an October 2017 review, calling it “a swing and a miss.”

We’ve reached out to a representative for Todd English Tavern for comment.

The Todd English Tavern failure is no surprise.  The food and service were poor and like most places in The Battery, overpriced!!

i predict the next failure there will be C. Ellets for the same reasons.
