Milkshakes, sandwiches coming to Buckhead’s Modera Prominence development

Other concepts will serve Lebanese, Mexican and Thai food

Several food and beverage concepts have been announced for mixed-used development Modera Prominence, slated to open next year at 3699 Lenox Road NE.

The development, from Mill Creek Residential, will be home to the first Georgia location of California-based sandwich shop Mendocino Farms; Mediterranean restaurant Zakia, from the team behind Mission and Market and Tre Vele; Mexican restaurant CT Reforma; and the second Atlanta location of chain The Yard Milkshake Bar.

One additional concept — a “top-of-market local Thai restaurant,” according to a press release — has also been confirmed.

Opening in February 2022 about one mile northeast of Modera Prominence, Zakia comes from chef Ian Winslade and operators Jonathan and Ryan Akly. The restaurant, which will be designed by Tony Akly of Restaurants Consulting Group, Inc., will feature Lebanese cuisine specializing in shareable mezze and grilled meat and seafood.

A “contemporary Mexican cantina,” CT Reforma will serve as the fourth restaurant under the CTTACOS restaurant group umbrella that also includes CT Taqueria and CT Al Pastor in Alpharetta. The Modera Prominence location, which will provide “more of an upscale experience,” is slated to open in February 2022.

Projected to open in fall 2022, Mendocino Farms will feature a menu of sandwiches and salads, “offering unique twists on classics and globally-inspired flavor combinations.” The Atlanta location will be the first outside of the California and Georgia markets.

Launched by husband and wife Logan and Chelsea Green in 2017, the Yard, which gained a nationwide following after it was showcased on the show “Shark Tank” in 2019, will open in the first part of 2022. It will join a location in downtown Atlanta that opened in 2020. The Buckhead location will be operated franchisee Cheri Johnson.

The five-story Modera Prominence, which began leasing in 2020, will also offer 318 apartments, a sixth-floor sky lounge and a co-working space. Two retail spaces remain, one of which is a 1,700-square-foot corner lot for a fast-casual restaurant, while the other is in the center of the open plaza.
