Mick Jagger Got a Last Minute Reso at Miller Union Ahead of Atlanta Show, Ordered Sweet Potato Fries

Restaurant Chef somehow does not suffer heart attack or nervous breakdown.

The night before The Rolling Stones played a set of classics at Mercedes Benz Arena in Atlanta last night for their blockbuster layup No Filter tour, Mick Jagger rolled into one of Atlanta’s hottest dining spots, Miller Union after his team booked a reservation that same night.

Mick & Co. showed up at 9:00 PM with security for a patio table tucked away in the corner presumably for privacy.

Imagine.

I can, I’ve worked in restaurants for over a decade and a half.

it’s a hump day service (meaning weekend product likely not in yet) at a farmed-to-table establishment, and one of the architects of pop music is hungry. No time to draft up a five-course tasting menu on the back of a chit or soldier to the walk-in for fresh and possibly dryly witty product to showcase. No goats heads to make soup from.

Not to mention it’s flippin 9:00 PM, what the hell’s even left? You know those restaurants that just say “11:00 AM – SOLD OUT?” try explaining that to the guy who wrote “Play With Fire.”

In a phone interview with Forbes, Chef Steven Satterfield described the event modestly as “last minute” with “no special arrangements;” the rock legend ordered within the constraints of the menu…well almost.

A request from Jagger himself reached the kitchen for “French fries.”

Miller Union, which is a farmed-to-table concept that uses strictly seasonally and locally available ingredients, currently does not offer potatoes.

The Chef instead offered Jagger sweet potato fries, shoestring, and dusted in rice flour to be exact, which were being used as an element in another dish and not a side. He obliged.

Jagger was typically respectful, “They wanted to tell me they were having a great time and they loved the food,” Chef Steven told Forbes.

He regrettably did not ask for a photo fearing that it would be awkward; a server who was less intimidated approached Jagger to take a photo with the Chef.

Yesterday, the day before Jagger arrived, Miller Union completed their twelfth year of business through economic downturn and pandemic.

Jagger, meanwhile, did a bit of Atlanta sightseeing a day ahead of the show, eating at Fat Matt’s Rib Shack and taking a photo at The Clermont Lounge, Atlanta’s first and oldest strip club.
