Two longtime friends have opened their first restaurant in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood.

Highland Bistro opened last week at 701 Highland Ave. NE in the Highland Walk development for delivery and takeout, and is slated to open Feb. 9 for dine-in service.

Longtime friends Isaac White and Anthony Singleton plan to open Highland Bistro at 701 Highland Ave. NE in the Highland Walk development, as a “community-rooted restaurant space welcoming for all,” according to a press release.

The eatery’s menu offers a variety of upscale pub items including starters like wings and nachos, sandwiches including a Reuben, pork melt, cheeseburger and a ham and turkey club, and entrees like blackened salmon pasta and chicken and waffles.

There are also several vegetarian options, including Buffalo cauliflower and broccoli nuggets, and items that can be made vegetarian like the Highland Philly and the cheeseburger.

Highland Bistro also has a full bar with a cocktail list, including frozen to-go cocktails, and a selection of wine and beer.

White and Singleton, who have both worked in the Atlanta foodservice industry, said they want to find ways to be involved in the community, including by implementing a program where nonprofits can raise money by selling breakfast items at the restaurant.

The 50-seat restaurant plans to offer a reward program for employees and customers, nonprofit events, music and trivia.

Several food and beverage concepts have occupied the space at 701 Highland Ave. NE over the past few years. Most recently, Chef’d Up, which opened in the location in 2019, quietly closed earlier this year after a rent dispute. Before that, Barrelhouse, Cast Iron, Last Word and P’Cheen called the space home.

Limited, socially distant seating will be offered for dine-in service. All employees are required to wear masks, and guests are required to wear masks unless they’re seated and eating.

Highland Bistro will be open noon-10 p.m. Tuesdays-Fridays, noon-11 p.m. Saturdays and 1-8 p.m. Sundays.
