One Flew South, the only airport restaurant to be nominated for a James Beard Award, is opening a second location today on the Eastside Beltline.

The restaurant, owned and operated by restaurant group Jackmont Hospitality, is located at 670 DeKalb Ave. in the former Hazel Jane’s space. Chef Todd Richards, who serves as culinary director for Jackmont, initially planned to open Japanese seafood restaurant Kuro in the building, but ultimately decided One Flew South was a better fit for the location.

The full bar features a cocktail menu with options like the One Flew South made with plush plum vodka, yuzu, ume and hakutsuru sake and the You Only Live Twice with roku gin, haku vodka, lemongrass and italicus.

The location will seat 120 total guests, including 60 interior seats and 60 outdoor patio seats, with 40 of those seats facing the Beltline.

One Flew South opened at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in December 2008 and was named a James Beard Award semifinalist for outstanding service in 2015. The restaurant also helped launch the career of chef Duane Nutter, also a James Beard Award semifinalist, who is bringing a location of his acclaimed Alabama restaurant Southern National to Atlanta’s Summerhill neighborhood later this year.
