Leader Board Captures Champion Spots for Masters Golf Tournament Viewing and Specials
We “fore”-see a week of highly focused pros and incredible skills playing out at the Masters Tournament over the week of April 2-8. Perhaps you’re one of the lucky ones like Umi executive chef Fuyuhiko Ito cruising toward Augusta National Golf Club to follow golfers on practice or final rounds. If not, instead of puttering around in despair, pull on your golf shirt or cap and venture to Atlanta eateries teeing off Masters-themed specials and just-like-being-there viewing options.
Atkins Park Restaurant & Bar in Virginia-Highland encourages golfers and duffers to “witness a tradition unlike any other with a tavern unlike any other.” A Masters-themed food and drink menu drives the course April 5-8, flagging egg salad, pimento cheese, bar-b-que, chicken breast or turkey sandwiches ($5-$6); fries, sweet potato fries or field greens salad ($3); Miller or Stella Artois drafts ($4-$5.50) and golf-y cocktails including John Daly, Sand Wedge, Transfusion and Green Jacket ($6-$7). The Masters Tournament will play out on all televisions, volume on. To open tournament week, Atkins Park is tapping into a special Masters draft beer at 8 p.m. Monday, April 2.
All three Henri’s Bakery locations -- Westside, Buckhead and Sandy Springs -- are teeing up a $7.99 Masters special, available April 5-7. Grab the same kind of lunch items tournament attendees can claim at Augusta’s tradition-laced golf club: a pimento cheese or egg salad sandwich, Arnold Palmer drink and a green shortbread cookie.
