Fifth Group Restaurants announced Wednesday plans to open a second location of Alma Cocina, its Mexican and Latin American concept with an original location in downtown Atlanta.

The new, 7,000-square-foot Alma Cocina is set to open in mid-2019 in the former Bricktop’s space at the Terminus development in Buckhead.

"Buckhead has been a major area of growth for Fifth Group in the past several years – we opened South City Kitchen Buckhead in 2016 and Ecco Buckhead is slated to open later this year ," said Fifth Group partner Robby Kukler in a press release. "In our 25th year as a restaurant group, we're excited to share our plans for an expanded presence further on Peachtree Street as we bring Alma Cocina's energy and flair to the Buckhead neighborhood."

The restaurant group also announced that South City Kitchen Avalon is expected to open Tuesday, Jan. 16. The new restaurant will join the three other South City Kitchen locations in Midtown, Vinings and Buckhead.

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