Lee + White food hall gets first tenant and more restaurant news from the week

Honeysuckle Gelato, which already has a production facility at West End mixed-use development Lee + White, has also signed on as the first tenant for the project’s forthcoming food hall.

Originally planned as new construction, Lee and White’s food hall will now be located in the pre-existing Building 1020 and comprise 28,000 square feet. The building will offer a mix of full-service restaurants, including the second location of Lake & Oak announced in May; fast-casual dining options; and 13 food stalls. A large central bar will be located at the front of the building and will open to a Beltline-facing, 24-foot outdoor patio. More tenants will be announced for the food hall early this year.

Honeysuckle, which also has retail locations in the Ponce City Market and Trilith developments, as well as a shop in North Carolina, relocated its retail test kitchen and production facility within Lee + White to a 6,000-square-foot facility.

Other food and beverage concepts at Lee and White include Best End Brewing, ASW Exchange, Boxcar, Cultured South, Honeysuckle Gelato, Doux South Pickles, Wild Heaven Beer and Monday Night Brewing, which recently expanded its existing space by nearly 10,000 square feet

Acquired by MDH Partners and Ackerman & Co. in September 2019, Lee and White is a redevelopment of the former “Warehouse Row” buildings located at the intersection of Lee and White streets, comprising 11 buildings and totaling 433,204 square feet.
