“We couldn’t be more excited to finally announce our ATL opening the first week of December, it’s like an early Christmas present for the Chicago transplants,” said marketing director Maggie Keeler in a press release.
During opening week, Gino’s will be open from 4-11 p.m. Friday-Saturday and 4-10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday serving dinner only, aiming to add delivery and carry out by the end of December. Gino’s East Atlanta will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and will be open New Year's Eve and New Year’s Day.

The 80-seat restaurant will also offer free parking in its adjacent lot.
Gino’s, operated by Bravo Restaurants, Inc., also has locations in Wisconsin, Texas, Michigan and Mexico City in addition to Chicago.
