The restaurant will also feature a special weekend brunch menu and desserts using recipes from Ben's family, including TwoMama's Peach Pie during peach season.
Jennifer said Ben, who she's been married to for 20 years, was largely the impetus behind wanting to open Wood's.
"He's been wanting to do a barbecue restaurant all his life," she said. That dream became a possibility a year ago when the restaurateurs were approached about getting involved in the Summerhill development.
The 5,200 square-foot restaurant will also include a "really active" patio "that will animate the street area," Jennifer said.
Wood's will be part of a 72-acre site being redeveloped by Carter, Oakwood Development and Healey Weatherholtz Properties with Georgia State University as the anchor. Part of the project will turn 35 acres into a mixed-use area including offices, multifamily apartments, student apartments, and neighborhood restaurant and retail.
Halfway Crooks Brewing and Blending
recently announced plans to open on the Georgia Avenue corridor.
