JACKSON, Miss. —Cultivation Food Hall recently announced a new vendor, Atlas, a concept owner Chad Segrest describes as “Greek Down South.” The menu features Greek staples such as a hummus plate, falafel, salads, and gyros, each with a street food approach and subtle Southern twist.
A native of Jackson, Segrest considers Greek food his version of comfort food and loved the opportunity Cultivation Food Hall allowed him to develop the Atlas concept.
“Being in the food hall allows me to focus on the two most important things, the people and our food,” said Segrest. “This place is great for families or big groups and allows people to gather in the same space and enjoy a wide variety of food and options.”
The Greek meets South approach is most evident in Atlas’ house-made dressings including Feta Comeback and Feta Ranch. Wrap selections include a lamb gyro, roasted chicken, pan seared redfish, falafel, or ham & cheese, all with the option of either a pita or lettuce wrap.
The traditional Greek salad is updated at Atlas with the addition of house-pickled red onions and the option to add falafel, pan seared redfish, lamb gyro, or chicken roasted daily in-house. All lettuces served at Atlas are sourced from Salad Days, a local hydroponic farm.
The Atlas Fries are truly unique, served as cyclone-sliced potato skewers with Feta Comeback.
Atlas is open in Cultivation Food Hall, Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more on Atlas, follow @atlasgreek on Instagram and @atlasgreekdownsouth on Facebook.
