Platez Southern Kitchen + Cocktailz pays homage to the dishes, or platez as we like to call them, that families across the South have made part of their history. Our story starts with our own family and the spirit of serving others and continues into the amazing Decatur community where we are proud to call home. Join us for traditional Southern cuisine, with our signature twist, for breakfast, lunch, dinner or drinks. We can’t wait to welcome you!
Etanya Lucas, who has lived in the Atlanta area for 30 years, owned the first Georgia franchise of Hattie Marie’s BBQ, which was housed in the same location as Platez before closing earlier this year.
Lucas took inspiration for her Southern menu from her grandma’s restaurant Neta Dupree’s Soul Food Café in North Carolina, which was open for over 40 years. The name Platez comes from her grandmother, who would ask customers every day, “What plate of goodness are you having today?”
The menu was a collective effort between Lucas and the restaurant’s four African American chefs.
