Guests order at a counter, featuring a seafood display showcasing seasonal fish and seafood selections and a chalkboard menu.
Mills looked at several potential location for Big B’s before landing on Gateway, which he described as having a “neighborhood feel.”
“I wasn’t looking for the trendiest spots in town,” he said. “I wanted somewhere I could be for a long time.”
Big B's joins several other food and beverage concepts at Gateway Sandy Springs, including Santorini Taverna, which opened earlier this year. Tupelo Honey, TAKA Sushi, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Kale Me Crazy and Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop are all located in the development, and Snooze: An A.M. Eatery will open next year in place of Urban Cookhouse, which closed earlier this year.
In addition to FLIP, which has one remaining location on Howell Mill Road, Mills also co-founded HD1 hot dog eatery in Virginia-Highland, which closed several years ago. Both concepts were co-founded with former “Top Chef” contestant Richard Blais. The Howell Mill FLIP was later sold to new owners.
Big B’s is open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday-Saturday.
