Babalu Tacos and Tapas may join Alta Midtown at the location.
UPDATE (June 25, 2017): Babalu Tapas & Tacos To Open June 26 in Midtown
Babalu Tacos and Tapas, a restaurant from Jackson, Mississippi-based Eat Here Brands, is working on adding an Atlanta outpost.
The company presented plans to the Midtown Development Review Committee May 10 for a location in unit #1 at 33 Peachtree Place, an under-construction development from Wood Partners.
Babalu would be the first known table service restaurant tenant for the project, which will be home to Dancing Goats and Which Wich.
The 5,200 SF buildout would feature a stone and stucco veneer, operable storefront windows, patio seating with metal patio railing, wood planters, and an aluminum shelter hanging over some of the outdoor dining area. Additionally, the design would include an indoor and outdoor bar area with seating.
Earlier this week, Mary Sanders Ferriss, Creative Coordinator at Eat Here Brands, Babalu’s parent company, told What Now Atlanta that a lease has not been signed yet, but details will be shared as they are available.
The concept lists four existing locations on its website in Birmingham, Jackson, Memphis and Knoxville, with another on the way in Charlotte.
Also at the location will be Alta Midtown, a “resort-style” apartment development for which renderings and floorplans were recently revealed.
