Travelers will find two new food and beverage options at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport as part of a new wing in Concourse T, the largest expansion at the airport in a decade.

Opening today, Southern National Market comes from Reggie Washington and chef Duane Nutter, who also partnered to open One Flew South in Concourse E and own and operate Southern National in Summerhill.

The menu includes sandwiches, wraps, and salads, as well as grab-and-go options like Southern National’s pimento cheese and a local charcuterie selection.

Inside Southern National Market, the Pizza Boxx will serve pizzas including four cheese, smoked chicken, and beef bulgogi, plus sides like wings, meatballs, and soups.

The retail side of Southern National Market will stock Southern National items like bourbon honey, peach butter, and mustard, as well as gifts like gourmet pecans, chocolates, and pralines from other local vendors.

Opening Dec. 23, Vino Volo from airport restaurateur and retailer Paradies Lagardère will feature wines from local wineries including Chateau Elan, Three Sisters and Georgia Winery and craft beers and ciders from breweries like New Realm Brewing, Urban Tree Cidery and Monday Night Brewing. The bar also highlights wine flights.

Food options will be provided by Nutter and will feature breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Founded in 2005, Vino Volo has locations in 35 airports across the U.S. and Canada since 2005.

The extended terminal ends with a large circular atrium that will be home to more retail and dining options, all operated by Paradies Lagardère.

Other dining options opening in early 2024 in the new Concourse T expansion include Starbucks and Tropical Smoothie.
