Citizens Market

Foodies unite! We've got some exciting news for you - a new food hall has just opened up at Phipps Plaza--long live the food hall! Citizens Market is the latest addition to Atlanta's buzzing restaurant scene, and it's a must-visit for anyone who loves good food.

The space is beautifully designed by David Rockwell, with an open layout that encourages exploration of the 25,000-square-foot space (which used to be the ground floor for the Belk department store at the mall). The eight chef-driven brands (some are established brands, some are new concepts) with a few notable names like Dani Garcia, Masaharu Morimoto (a long-time chef on Iron Chef), and Italian chef and master butcher Dario Cecchini. Each offers counter service with communal seating plus a lavish indoor and outdoor bar. The food hall can be accessed from either the outdoor courtyard or from inside Phipps Plaza Mall. Here is a look at the offerings:

Umami Burger:A rich and savory taste sensation that goes beyond the commonplace flavors of sweet, sour, salty, and bitter. Umami is the fundamental element of the UmamiBurger experience. We make the most crave-able burgers known to man.

Sam's Crispy Chicken: A fast-casual dining concept offering Southern-fried chicken specialties, 100% antibiotic and hormone free. Sam's Crispy Chicken specializes in crowd-pleasing, hand-battered, cornflake-crusted, all-natural chicken sandwiches done right.
