HobNob: To mix socially or to associate on very friendly terms.
Unique. Cute. Eclectic. Craft. Knowledgeable. Friendly. Delicious. …Perfect.
If ever a restaurant nailed their name, it’s HobNob. Friendly, however is an understatement. When you walk in, you become an immediate part of the family.
Brothers Sean and Gilbert Yeremyan came by a love for food and hospitality at an early age. They studied hospitality and business management in Turkey, Brussels and eventually in the United States at Mercer University, settling in Atlanta in 1997. Although they have lived around the world and speak several languages, they brought a taste of their heritage to Atlanta when they opened Gilbert’s in Midtown in 2000, first as an international gourmet market, and then expanded in 2001, as a restaurant with a full bar. Today they have incorporated the neighborhood friendly feel of Gilbert’s into their second restaurant, HOBNOB, featuring comfort pub cuisine. The Yeremyan brothers believe in sincere and friendly service at their community-driven establishments. Come and enjoy their newest concept HOBNOB Neighborhood Tavern where you are sure to have great times…
We began our HobNobing adventures with craft cocktails created by the incomparable Rae & Katie. These ladies spend many hours perfecting their craft and it was evident in the quality of the designer craft drinks. They were refreshing, unique and the perfect way to begin our experience. Keith chose the Cherry Cartel while Rae created her specialty cocktail highlighting fresh blueberries Basil and for me.
For our first course, Rae chose HobNob’s Duo of Spreads featuring Hummus, Goat Cheese Spread, Carrots, Celery and Fresh Baked Pizza Crust Points. It was fresh, light and perfect for a hot summer night appetizer.
Our entrees came next and were superb! Rae selected HobNob’s Base Salad with Grilled Salmon as well as a Tavern specialty, the Flat Iron Steak. The salad features fantastic ingredients such as Baby Arugula, Spinach, Apples, Tomatoes, Belgian Endive, Dried Cranberries, Pecan Crusted Goat Cheese, and an amazing HOBNOB Maple Bacon Beer Vinaigrette.
The Flat Iron Steak is created using an 8oz. Choice 100% Angus Steak, Cabernet Gravy, Onion Ring, Buttermilk Mash Potatoes, and smokey Collard Greens.
Thinking we had no room left after this wonderful meal, we decided to opt out of dessert. Rae had other ideas. Do you SEE this???
