Fifth Group Restaurants has announced plans to open a third location of Ecco, its Euro-style restaurant with two current locations in Midtown and at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

The newest Ecco is set to open near Phipps Plaza in Buckhead in mid-2017. Fifth Group’s second concept in the area, South City Kitchen Buckhead, is expected to open in spring 2017, marking another step forward in what the company is calling its "five-year growth plan."

Other Fifth Group Restaurants include South City Kitchen Midtown and Vinings, La Tavola Trattoria, The Original El Taco, Alma Cocina, Lure and catering and design company, Bold American Events.

According to the release:

Ecco’s Buckhead location will occupy a new free-standing building outside Phipps Plaza at the corner of Peachtree and Wieuca Roads. Fifth Group will engage acclaimed restaurant architecture and design firm The Johnson Studio to execute the group’s vision for the space, which will accommodate 240 seats, including a private dining room seating up to 80 guests as well as a 50-seat, beautifully landscaped patio. The restaurant will serve both lunch and dinner daily.
