The restaurant will join several other concepts coming to Colony Square.
Sukoshi, slated to open later this year, will offer "an authentic sushi experience with a cheeky, on-the-go atmosphere" from O-Ku and Colletta owner Steve Palmer in a 2,000 square-foot space designed by Powell Architects.
Fast-casual Freshii, which will be located in Building 100 across from the new Starbucks, is owned and operated by Atlanta native Dustin Saboorian, who also owns Graveyard Tavern in East Atlanta. Freshii will offer “nutritious meal options inspired by global health trends,” including bowls, burritos, salads, wraps, soups, smoothies and juices, as well as gluten- and dairy-free products. Colony Square marks the brand’s second location in Georgia. Frehsii will partner with WE Charity, an international charity and educational partner dedicated to empowering impoverished communities, to develop a special menu that will benefit children in countries including Kenya and India.
Also part of the redevelopment will be a food hall called Main & Main and a chef-driven restaurant coming as part of iPic luxury movie theater. as well a Chick-fil-A, Moe's and Starbucks.
A new 10,000 square-foot urban park, dubbed The Grove, opened earlier this month and includes 40-foot trees, Spanish steps, tables and chairs and will be the gateway for Main & Main and the iPic theater.
“Between the restaurants, luxury dine-in theater and expertly curated food hall, Colony Square will be the destination for great food, lively entertainment and community,” said Mark Toro, managing partner of NAP in a statement. “We’re looking forward to welcoming each of these exceptional dining concepts to Colony Square and are excited to be one step closer to delivering Midtown’s new center of gravity.”
