Metro Atlanta pop-up Eat Me Speak Me to end in June

The chef behind a popular Atlanta pop-up has announced the project will end this summer. 

Jarrett Stieber who started Eat Me Speak Me at Gato in Candler Park six years ago and moved to SOS Tiki Bar in 2017 announced via his Instagram account that the pop-up will serve its last meal on June 29.

Stieber is turning his attention to Little Bear, his first brick-and-mortar slated to open this fall in Summerhill. 

Named for Stieber’s dog, Little Bear will serve a seasonal, locally-sourced menu separated into hot, cold and sweet categories and will feature some popular dishes from Eat Me Speak Me including raw beef lettuce wraps. 

The 1,300 square-foot restaurant will have 30 seats and will join several other culinary ventures along Georgia Avenue, including Wood’s Chapel BBQ from the team behind The General Muir, Hodgepodge Coffeehouse, Halfway Crooks Brewing and Blending, soft serve ice cream spot Big Softie and Little Tart Bakery. Another pop-up veteran, Talat Market, will also set up shop as brick-and-mortar in Summerhill this summer. Talat Market, run by Parnass Savang, took over the spot vacated by Eat Me Speak Me at Gato when it moved to SOS Tiki Bar.
