A permit application was recently filed with the City of Atlanta to buildout the South Carolina-style whole-hog barbecue joint in The Met, at 680 Murphy Ave SW.
The permit filing is the first major public milestone for the inbound restaurant since The Met Developer Carter announced the plans at the end of 2019.
An estimated $500,000 will be spent on the 4,420-square-foot Rodney Scott’s Whole Hog BBQ.
Scott and his team—including partner Nick Pihakis, former CEO of Jim ‘N Nick’s BBQ—will operate the restaurant at the MET, a 1.1 million-square-foot property adjacent to the West End MARTA station and situated between Murphy Avenue and Metropolitan Parkway.
