Nobody likes to see a good pilot go down.
So news of 57th Fighter Group Restaurant (MIA since ’07) reloading with the same ’40s nostalgia and some choice updates had us suiting up and rarin’ to go.
Old favorites are making a comeback (SweetWater 420 beer and cheese soup! Air traffic control tower headphones sprinkled throughout!), which should delight 57th vets. Lunch and munch black and blue salads and lobster rigatoni squares. Sup on stuffed grouper or Chilean sea bass over gouda grits.
Check back over the next few weeks for a spin around the retro, date-perfect dance floor (live music license pending) or head to the patio to watch planes land and take off from Peachtree-Dekalb Airport.
Dine into the danger zone.
57th Fighter Group Restaurant, 3829 Clairmont Road, Chamblee (770-234-0057 or the57threstaurant.com).
