'HOME' Store, One Flew South Arrive at Airport
By Roishina C. Henderson

The new One Flew South Restaurant and Atlanta Magazine's HOME store are leading the way for Hartsfield-Jackson's retail renaissance, which includes more than 70 new dining and shopping locations opening at the Airport through June 2009.

On-the-go travelers can enjoy spirited global fare created by established chefs Duane Nutter and Todd Richards, formerly of the Seelbach Hotel's Oakroom in Louisville, Ky. They use premium ingredients from regional farmers and purveyors. The restaurant, which opened in late November on Concourse E, serves sushi, clever cocktails designed by Jerry Slater and an upscale to-go menu.

"Many travelers will remember a time when airport menus were limited to traditional items such as hot dogs, sandwiches and chips," said Aviation General Manager Ben DeCosta at the ribbon cutting. "One Flew South has taken the 'traditional' to new heights. Hartsfield-Jackson's concessions program is one of the jewels in our crown as we strive to exceed our customers' expectations by providing them an exciting and appetizing dining option."

Atlanta Magazine's HOME store brings a flair of Southern culture and traditions to the Atrium. The shop features cookware, home décor and furnishings in a cozy setting. Atlanta gourmet chef Gena Knox also stocked the shelves with her latest book, "Gourmet Made Simple."

"It's only fitting that the first store to open as part of Hartsfield-Jackson's retail expansion reflects our hometown, Atlanta, and our rich Southern culture," said Arnaldo Ruiz, the Airport's assistant general manager for commercial development. "This shop will be one of many expected to make passengers' traveling experiences delightful."

Simply Books and Z Market, a convenience store, also opened recently in the Atrium, and more retail shops are on the way for the second construction phase during winter 2009.
