West Midtown is now home to a McAlister’s Deli, one distinct from the 400 or so others in the country.

The fast-casual chain recently opened the prototype restaurant, which includes new designs based on guest insights and research.

McAlister's also has locations in Roswell, Lawrenceville and Kennesaw, but this is the first in the city of Atlanta. It's located at 1299 Northside Drive, near Georgia Tech in the new West Midtown Center being developed by Fuqua.

The 3,100-square-foot space has about 80 employees.

Joe Guith, president of McAlister’s, said in May that West Midtown was picked for the “vibrancy and diversity of the community.”

“This new prototype is an exciting and long-awaited step for McAlister’s,” Guith said.

The chain, which was established nearly 30 years ago, serves sandwiches, soup, salads and desserts. It is headquartered in Atlanta.

His new fiancée, Elizabeth Ingram, is a successful restaurant and residential designer based in Atlanta. During an interview with Architectural Digest, Brown said he "started looking forward to seeing her more than the space.” At some point, he said, "meetings turned into dates.” The couple will marry this month in Charleston, South Carolina.
