Cultivation Hall Cultivates Greece

Cultivation Food Hall at The District at Eastover issued the following press release.

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.

A first of its kind in Mississippi, Cultivation Food Hall showcases a carefully curated collection of boutique restaurant concepts and a classic, craft cocktail bar.  Open daily, the food hall features the best culinary talent with an emphasis on local, chef-inspired concepts.  Additional vendors include Bocca Pizzeria, Fête au Fête, Gold Coast Bar, Il Lupo Coffee, Local Honey, Poké Stop and Whisk Crêperie.

Cultivation Food Hall is located on the ground floor of the BankPlus Building in The District at Eastover at 1200 Eastover Drive, Suite 125 Jackson, MS 39211.  The  food hall offers complimentary Wi-Fi, a dedicated event space, and both indoor and outdoor seating.

Desserts are never as good as they look said...

I wish Piccadilly would open a location in the food court.

I can't wait. I think this is a fantastic idea. Only a few green places around. Keifers... aplos... much needed. Cultivation is a great concept.

Ophelia said...

Wonderful news! I don’t think this will hurt Aplos and Aladdin at all—no such thing as too much healthy, yummy Greek food. If they can do a veggie gyro as slplendiferous as Keifer’s, I will be there often! Best of luck to this new arrival.

Goat meat has been a Southern staple for as long as I can remember. Nothing better'n a goat turning on the barbie spit and a tub full of Schlitz. Did we really neat Priss-Over to remind us of this reality?

Louis LeFleur said...

Sounds interesting. Will have to give it a try.

I'm curious - what stall will this be replacing?

Be nice if they had parking and if the vendors weren’t jack asses.

I’ll stick to Keifer’s

Looks like NY Deli, Ariella's is gone off the list. Sucks because that was one of the better ones. Whisk is the worst, surly staff and doesn't even serve some things on the menu.

No place there is safe for someone who needs to eat gluten free. Even the few items that are listed as gluten free are prepared in the common kitchen which, according to one of the vendors, is "covered with flour". I surely would love a choice of foods, as would the others in my situation.

Ariella's is changing its concept and reopening in another spot in Cultivation Hall. I've tried a few things at Atlas and it is good.

Every hipster ever said...

I love Cultivation Food Hall

'Cultivation Hall' sounds like it ought to be in the corner of Tractor Supply next to the deer-corn and propane. Y'all got any middle-busters for sale?

To everyone complaining about "surly waitstaff" please know that we are all woke and fed up with fatties, boomers, and magatards. You people don't even know that in 2019 less than 20% gratuity is unacceptable. We have student loans to pay. Please just take your business to Golden Coral in Flowood. Hate and ignorance has no place in The District

I have a newsflash for wait staff. Customers don't give a rat's ass that you 'have student loans to pay'. If you're fed up with the diversity your customers represent, get another fucking line of work. If YOU are fed up with 'fatties, boomers and magatards', just imagine how fed up they are with weed junkies, tattoo stinkards and servers who can't figure out which sex they prefer to be. From your post at 5:25 a.m., I'd suggest your tip should max out at 3%, if that.

Anonymous said...

5:25 Ungrateful twit. Surprised you didn't say 25-30%... rising costs in mama's basement?

I think I'm going to have lunch at The District while wearing my MAGA hat. Where can I get a well done steak with ketchup?

I'm going to bring a roll of pennies to tip with.

@9:39 & 10:15

It is unwise to insult the people who handle your food. It's a fact that Baby boomers are the worst tippers and worst complainers the service industry has to deal with.
Yes some people just don't like to deal with you. Maybe instead of blaming everyone else, you should all reflect on your selfishness.

Anonymous said...

@5:25, it's not my fault you spent $100,000 to get a useless degree you'll never be able to monetize. And I'll decide what an acceptable tip is, it's my money and I'll tip only when it's deserved...if you want a higher tip rate, do a better job!

Anonymous said...

You fail to understand. Most boomers still think 10% is a really good tip. So even if you bust your ass for their table of 5, they top out at 10% thinking they're doing you a huge favor. It isn't 1979 or even 1999 anymore.

It is 2019.

And for your information I'm still working on my degree and I can't work in my field because I need 5 years experience or a degree.

Ohh, have opened a can of worms, my friend... Making yourself a lifetime waiter sounds like its not in the cards for you.. Here is an idea... pay your dues, put yourself through school and rely on yourself to pay the bills. Servers are a dimeadozen and you sir or madam, are no different. Take your pouty ass somewhere else.You are no better than the next person.

Not wise to insult the people you are depending on to tip you. Here’s a clue: good friendly customer service generates higher tips

Anonymous said...

5:25 is right.

Cheapskates should stick to buffets if the max the can come up with is 10% tip. You are all assuming that 5:25 is a bad server. But I'm a head waiter myself and you can predict complainers and bad tippers after a month waiting. You people know who you are.

I don’t give a shit what color your hair is, how many tattoos you have or which gender you prefer to get naked with. I do care that you maintain a reasonable level of hygiene. The unmanicured, dingy fingernails and hasn’t been washed in a few days hair will bottom out my generous tips faster than you can pull a rubber band around those dreads.

The food at the new Greek place is really good, but it will not survive unless service speeds up. The deli place is being replaced with a pasta place.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
