White Provision Welcomes Shaun Doty’s YEAH! BURGER, an eco-friendly restaurant featuring local meats

Atlanta welcomed to the scene our newest sustainable restaurant in White Provision on the west side last night! “YEAH! Burger” will focus on locally-sourced meat (from White Oak Pastures – a favorite of Zack’s and mine), eco-friendly materials and practices, and organic foods with the ultimate goal of creating a zero waste zone. The trend of sustainable dining seems to be one that sticking, and one that I hope will become the norm in the near future.

Read on for the press release here and let me know what you think once you’ve had a chance to try it!

Oh yeah, BONUS! You know the car wash at the corner of Virginia and North Highland in the heart of Virginia Highland? That’s already slated for the next YEAH! Burger, opening this fall (thanks to my inside connection at work, who’s brother is one of the investors making this happen).
