NaanStop, Pho24 now open at Atlantic Station

Atlantic Station just got two more places for lunch and dinner.

Local chains NaanStop and Pho24 have both opened their doors at the Midtown mixed-use development.

Located in a 2,200 square-foot space previously occupied by Tin Drum Asian Kitchen, fast-casual Indian concept NaanStop is the third in Atlanta, adding to the eatery’s Downtown and Buckhead locations.

Founded by brothers Neal and Samir Idnani, who learned to cook with their mother, NaanStop allows customers to choose a protein on a salad, rice bowl or naanwich, with dishes including Chicken Tikka Masala and Samosas.

The addition of NaanStop and shuttering of Tin Drum is the latest in a series of openings and closures at Atlantic Station in the past two years, including the closing of Rosa Mexicano ; the opening of salad concept Salata , which replaced Moe's Southwest Grill ; and the opening of Gayu-Kaku Japanese BBQ, which took over the space vacated by Copeland's Cheesecake Bistro at the beginning of 2017 . In addition, HOBNOB Neighborhood Tavern and bowling alley Bowlero are set to open this year.

“As Atlantic Station continues its evolution, the addition of local food favorites like NaanStop reinforces the set goal of creating an engaging and approachable experience for visitors,” said director of retail leasing for Hines real estate company Nick Garzia in a statement. “NaanStop is widely loved across the city, and we are thrilled to have the flagship location at Atlantic Station.”  

Vietnamese spot Pho24 is also open in the former Boneheads space. It’s the seventh location for the local chain, which also has locations in Sandy Springs, Chamblee, Duluth, Lawrenceville, Buford and downtown Atlanta, with another planned restaurant in Commerce.
