“Hopefully, by the end of the year we will be able to get close to our lineup,” Palmer said.
Palmer's own Indigo Road will operate the to-be-named bar at Main & Main as well as a Japanese concept called Sukoshi, which translates to "a little bit." Indigo Road currently operates 15 restaurant concepts throughout the Southeast, including three in Atlanta (
), with another,
Donetto, soon to serve up Tuscan cuisine on the Westside
Operating space at the food hall is also being offered to local nonprofit City of Refuge for its culinary arts program 180 Degree Kitchen.
Plans also include complementary concepts such as flower, chocolate and pastry pop-ups.
The design of Main & Main will have a mid-century, modern feel that reflects Colony Square’s inception in the 1960s. “It harkens back to the ‘Mad Men’ era,” Toro said.
Leading the design is David Thompson, a restaurant designer and architect who has had a hand locally in the look and layout of O-Ku Sushi as well as Oak Steakhouse.
One focal point will be the Grove. Located at Juniper and 14th Streets, this shaded green space will offer soft seating and a beer garden, and will serve as the entrance to Main & Main.
Construction is slated to begin on Main & Main this fall. According to Toro, the atrium at Colony Square will shut down by year’s end.
