Omnivore - Buzz to Piedmont Park for new Nectar

The health-centric concept to open Piedmont Park outpost


  • Zach Porter

The idea started with juice. Specifically, raw juices and smoothies made fresh to order much like co-owner Naruna Rangel enjoyed growing up in Brazil. Six years ago Nectar opened in Decatur and then two food trucks were added to help spread the healthy living mantra throughout the city. Just in time for summertime fun in the Atlanta's grassy oasis, another outpost opens at Piedmont Park May 23.

"We enjoy making a difference in people’s lives by offering them fresh, nutritious foods. By eating better, our customers are taking steps to improve their quality of life. Their relationships with family and friends improve and this creates a healthier community. Seeing our business thrive and helping people improve their lives by eating better is the most satisfying feeling." says Rangel.

Nectar will offer fresh to order juices, smoothies and paninis, to hungry and thirsty park goers in Atlanta.
Nectar’s menu lists the properties of each juice and smoothie like rejuvinating, or purifying, or immune boosting. Juices range from purifiers to a virgin bloody Mary mixture.

A popular dish that will likely make an appearance is the vegetarian hearts of palm panino with locally made multigrain bread, hearts of palm, cheddar cheese, red onions, greens, and house-made Russian dressing.

Nectar also offers a raw juice cleanse service which can be delivered to your home or picked up on site. For more information visit www.benectar.com. Nectar is located near the newly renovated Piedmont Pool and will be open seven days a week.
