Great googly moogly, first came the Tommenator, the decadent masterpiece of tater tots, brunswick stew and mountains of ooey gooey cheese at Fox Bros. Next were the divine sweet potato tots at Flip. Now comes an entire array of totty goodness from the newly announced The Nook opening next to Piedmont Park on March 20.
According Creative Loafing, The Nook will be serving “Totchos” (tater tots smothered in goodness), including such items as Redneck Totchos (pulled pork, bbq sauce and cheese), Nacho Totchos (grilled chicken, cheese, lettuce, onions, sour cream and pico de gallo), and Philly Totchos (peppers, onions, mushrooms, steak and cheese).
Is it just me or are tater tots totally in? Is tot the new black?
The Nook is being opened in the old Prince of Wales space by Adam Gajadharsingh, Gabriel Greenberg and David Duley , the same guys who run Sutra Lounge. Not a huge fan of that place (seriously is there such a thing as a club in Atlanta that actually merits attitude at the door?), but The Nook is blessed with a perfect location for pub food. What could be more fun than spending a day in the park and heading over for some tots and suds?
Intriguingly, a quick google search turns up that Adam Gajadharsingh is a former lawyer at Arnall Golden. Clubs and pubs sound like so much more fun than lawyering. Way to live the dream Adam!
