Rum distillery, ramen eatery coming to The Beacon in Grant Park

The Beacon mixed-use development in Grant Park is bringing two new concepts on board.

What Now Atlanta reports that Ateliea House of Rum, operating under Atlantica Distilling, and Hotto Hotto Ramen and Teppanyaki will both open later this year at 1039 Grant St.

Ateliea, from entrepreneur Ronford Howell, is slated to open in June and will feature a 5,400 square-foot distillery and tasting room, as well as a private lounge area and other amenities open to members of Ateliea's Wing Society. Expect to be able to taste three to four rums when Ateliea opens its doors, including amber, black spiced and peach-infused varieties.

Entrepreneur Alice Wong, who owned and operated eatery Joe Catfish in Northlake Mall for five years, hopes to open Hotto Hotto this May. The menu will feature a variety of ramen and teppanyaki and will offer several vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options. Wong will partner with Hopstix founder and brewmaster Andy Tan to serve locally-brewed beers, and will also offer Asian-inspired cocktails such as a Matcha Green Tea Martini.

Ateliea and Hotto Hotto will join several other food and drink concepts at The Beacon, including neighborhood market Third Street Goods; restaurant and Pinfall spot Pin & Proper; Mexican restaurant Patria Cocina; cookie studio A Haute Cookie; bakery and cafe Baker Dude; and Brazilian coffee shop and bar Buteco. Marguerite's Jerk Bistro and The Bailey Wine Cellar are also set to open this year.
