Chef Nhan Le, the owner of Supremo Taco, Octopus Bar, and 8ARM, is opening a lunch and dinner Mexican chicken restaurant on Moreland Avenue called Pollo Supremo, as reported by Atlanta Magazine. Pollo Supremo’s kitchen will be helmed by Le’s partner chef Duane Kulers, who operates the kitchen at Supremo Taco.
The menu at Pollo Supremo will feature pollo asado with three sides, a soup, and churros or flan for dessert. A family meal option will be available as well.
Along with the food, the counter service restaurant will offer horchata, aguas frescas, and possibly beer and wine.
“I know it sounds crazy, but I don’t think it’s a bad time to [open a restaurant],” Le told Atlanta Magazine. “It’s a good time to get good rent in a location we want.”
The location, designed for outdoor eating, will reportedly feature a large, 40-seat outdoor patio, and drive through. While the exact location has not yet been disclosed, further reporting by Eater Atlanta pins Pollo Supremo in the former Bento Mac space, at 792 Moreland Ave SE.
Le is also working on a boutique seafood market called Fishmonger near Ponce de Leon Avenue. The market, still in its early stages of development, hopes to offer fresh seafood and oysters along with sauces and dips. As with Pollo Supremo, Fishmonger’s location has not been disclosed.
What Now Atlanta has reached out to Le for comment on both Pollo Supremo and Fishmonger.
