Tal Baum, who owns Italian eatery Bellina Alimentari in Ponce City Market, has plans for two new Atlanta restaurants. 

Baum will open Aziza in spring 2019 in the Westside Provisions District development in the space underneath Marcel, Atlanta Magazine first reported.  

The restaurant, which will focus on Israeli and Middle Eastern cuisine, will feature items including whole leg of lamb, tagines and salads.

On the beverage side will be Israeli and Californian wines, local and Mediterranean craft beers and specialty cocktails made with Mediterranean liquors.

Baum also plans to open a falafel stand next door offering items including hummus bowls and pitas.

Meanwhile, in Old Fourth Ward, Baum is slated to open Rina in the Ford Factory Lofts near the Eastside Beltline, also in the spring. Rina will serve skewers, falafel, sandwiches and salads.

Baum worked in restaurants in Italy for several years before opening Bellina Alimentari in 2015.
