Restaurant will be located next to Minnie Olivia Pizzeria

Chef Julio Delgado has a new concept in the works, set to open next door to his Minnie Olivia Pizzeria in Alpharetta.

Located at 10 Roswell St., Fogón and Lions will open in 2022 offering a menu of wood-fired meats, produce and seafood. The restaurant was inspired by Delgado’s grandfather, Polo Lopez, who was a butcher in Delgado’s native Puerto Rico. A photo of Lopez will hang in the entryway of the restaurant.

To cook his food, Delgado commissioned a 14 foot-long hearth from Grills by DeMant. Dishes will include ceviches, chicken croquettes, Spanish and local cheeses and charcuterie, whole roasted suckling pig, shrimp tacos, Cuban sandwiches and a selection of salads.

Fogón and Lions’ beverage program will have a rum program and a variety of tequilas, with a focus on Spanish brands.

The restaurant, which will feature a 30-seat indoor/outdoor bar, will feature live music on select evenings.
