About Grant Park…

The Neighborhood’s namesake, Grant Park, is a 131 acre green space that includes a playground, walking trails, and beautiful landscaping.  For History buffs, the nearby Cyclorama is a rotating museum showcasing the world’s largest oil-based painting, depicting the battle of Atlanta.  Also in Grant Park is Zoo Atlanta, one of the oldest zoos in the country.  Other nearby activities include Oakland Cemetery, which is the resting place of some of the city’s most famous residents, Hushpuppy Gallery, and Grant Park Pool.

Gunshow!

924 Garrett Street SE • Glennwood Park

One of the best things about living in Ormewood Park would be that you’re so close to chef Kevin Gillespie’s newest hit – Gunshow.  Conceived as a new take on the Southern barbecue joint he also borrows from the idea of dim sum style service–here the chefs prepare various dishes and bring them to you personally!  Locally sourced and seasonal, the offerings are constantly changing.  This is a totally new experience, and one that you’re bound to repeat often.  Click here or on the image above for past menu inspirations and reservation info.
