With its revitalized architecture, trendy eateries and all around cool feel, Atlanta’s Westside has long been the place to be. Add Stationside to the list of restaurants that are drawing diners to this part of town.
The casual modern spot is located at Terminal West at the King Plow Arts Center, a live music and special events venue that showcases Atlanta’s industrial history. Stationside offers lunch Tuesday through Friday, and food during shows at Terminal West.
Slightly off the more traveled path of Howell Mill Road, Stationside is located on West Marietta Street NW (you’ll see a helpful sign at the corner of West Marietta and Brady Avenue). Lunch crowds are warmly welcomed with reserved spots and validated parking in the gated lot.
The food is what makes Stationside worth the visit. Whether it’s vegetarian, vegan or gluten free you’re looking for, you’ll find it on the menu at Stationside.
It’s pretty impressive what Executive Chef Dan Brown and his team can create in that tiny kitchen. Try the Waldrep Farms BBQ Pork Sandwich, which comes with pickled jalapeño and fennel-apple slaw, or the Korean Friend Chicken Sandwich, which gets added umami flavor from Simply Seoul kimchi. La Cubana, with adobo roasted pork, ham, provolone and dill pickle, is one of the tastiest Cuban sandwiches you’ll find outside of Miami.
Candied ginger and citrus vinaigrette make the Kale Salad stand out. Be sure to try some of the sides including the Adobo Tater Tots, served with chipotle ketchup, or the Tempura Avocado, decadently fried and creamy, served with a sweet Thai chili sauce.
Consider Stationside for your next lunch event. The restaurant offers a private dining area that can accommodate eight to twenty plus guests. Reservations are recommended, though walk-ups are allowed if the space is available.
Stationside is open for lunch Tuesday through Friday from 11am to 2pm.
