Big Green Egg Smoked Wings and More Land on New Menu at Atkins Park Virginia-Highland
Atkins Park Restaurant & Bar in Virginia-Highland has summer fun in mind and on its new menu. Don’t panic, favorites are still there. But think how wonderful it will be to share “Always Available” dishes that shout “Summer!” such as Big Green Egg smoked wings ($11) and Guinness-dipped pretzels with pimento cheese and stout mustard ($6). Or, hoist a spicy Texas chicken sandwich or wrap ($11), salmon BLT with house-smoked bacon ($12), Big Green Egg pulled pork on a jalapeño bun ($9), smoked prime rib French dip ($13) or wild mushroom and spinach on toasted multigrain bread ($11). For lunch, try power-packed grilled salmon or steak salads ($12), beef short rib sliders with Vidalia onion jam ($7), “Flatbread of the South” ($12) or “The Local Vegetable Plate” ($12). Appetizers, entrées and small plates load up the dinner menu. Think meat and cheese board ($15), cornbread-crusted Georgia trout ($19), braised short ribs with sweet potato gnocchi ($20) or Louisiana BBQ shrimp lettuce wraps ($11). It’s easy to linger over weekend brunch to savor a fried chicken pancake sandwich ($12), Big Green Egg smoked wagyu beef brisket and eggs ($14) or a chorizo skillet ($10). Cocktails, beer, wine -- Atkins Park accessorizes perfectly with these liquid refreshers.
