Bacchanalia now open in new location

Bacchanalia has been a dining destination since Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison   opened it in its first location in Buckhead in 1993. The restaurant started a new chapter this week with its opening at 1460 Ellsworth Industrial Boulevard. Star Provisions Market and Cafe is now also located in the 8,717-square-foot building.

The two spots moved from their previous home at Westside Provisions District at 1198 Howell Mill Road, about a mile away from the Ellsworth Office Lofts. Little Bacch, which opened in 2015 with high marks in the courtyard-level space beneath Bacchanalia, is now closed. The take-away portion of Star Provisions, Little Star Provisions To-Go, will remain in its current space at Westside Provisions.

The new Bacchanalia space, designed by Perkins+Will, brings to life a space inspired by Quatrano's family farm, Summerland, in Cartersville. Quatrano and Harrison want to evoke a sense of "coming home" in the new combined space through decor and cuisine.

Quatrano addressed the "bittersweet" move in a 2016 interview with the AJC.

She said landlord Michael Phillips, who owns Westside Provisions District, “bent over backwards” to help accommodate the restaurants’ needs, but said “it turned out to be time to go.”
