2018 is already shaping up to be a good year in Atlanta restaurants. Here are some of the highly anticipated restaurants coming to Atlanta:
8 Arm’s Nhan Le is continuing on with the BeltLine-adjacent seafood spot. Le says he’s aiming for an early summer opening and also mentioned the addition of an in-house coffee roasting program called Three Heart.
This popular Edgewood pizza place had an unfortunate string of bad luck last year. Not one but two cars crashed into the building—on separate occasions. If all goes according to plan, the restaurant is scheduled to reopen later this year.
Arnette’s Chop Shop
The Haven, Valenza, and Vero Pizzeria team has a new steakhouse in the works. Located in Brookhaven, Arnette’s Chop Shop will offer cuts of meat of all sizes, as well as raw bar items and a rooftop bar.
Coalition Food & Beverage
After an opening delay last year, Coalition, the newest restaurant from Ryan Permice, promises to bring “chef-driven American cuisine” to Canton Street in Alpharetta in the spring.
Ford Fry’s as-of-yet-unnamed Morningside restaurant
Mega-restaurateur Ford Fry didn’t launch any new concepts last year (focusing instead on expanding Superica and the El Felix), but in 2018 he’ll open a new Tex-Mex spot with a healthy spin on Piedmont Road in Morningside.
The James Room
Ponce City Market’s 18.21 Bitters founders Missy and Kristin Koefod are opening a coffee shop-meets-cocktail bar along the Atlanta BeltLine. Located near Studioplex and Krog Street Market, it will serve coffee and pastries in the morning and 18.21 Bitters signature cocktails in the evening.
Hattie B’s Hot Chicken
This Nashville-style hot chicken spot is finally making its local debut in Candler Park this spring. Prepare yourself for six spice levels of fried chicken, pimento macaroni and cheese, creamy cole slaw, and black-eyed pea salad.
The team behind Brush Sushi Izakaya is opening a casual Japanese restaurant on Eighth Street in Midtown. Expect rice bowls, ramen, matcha, Japanese-style desserts, coffee, wine, beer, and sake.
Public Kitchen and Bar
Coming soon to Phipps Plaza is the very popular Savannah restaurant. The Public Kitchen & Bar was created to elevate the casual dining experience while keeping a 'public' sensibility. This means sourcing the very best ingredients available and serving them in a stylish, casual environment.
