Crazy Atlanta bringing ‘crazy-tizers,’ specialty cocktails to East Atlanta

A downtown Atlanta restaurant and special events venue is expanding to East Atlanta.

Crazy Atlanta, which opened at 182 Courtland St. in 2015, is slated to take over the space at 543 Flat Shoals Ave. SE previously occupied by nightclub Asylum, What Now Atlanta reports.

Founder George Malagón and partner and chef Leo Carrasco’s eclectic menu includes a variety of “crazy-tizers” including empanadas and calamari; sandwiches and wraps such as Philly cheesesteaks, gyros and corned beef; burgers; wings; pizzas; and Tex-Mex dishes including tacos, burritos and nachos.

Beverage options includes beer, wine and a selection of specialty and signature drinks including the House CrazyRita and apple martinis.

In addition to serving food and drinks, Crazy Atlanta will serve as a venue for special events 

Malagón said the East Atlanta location will be the second of what he said will be several Crazy restaurants around the world in the next five years.

The East Atlanta spot is set to open in December.
