RO Hospitality—Table & Main, Osteria Mattone—has opened Coalition Food and Beverage, the third “chef-driven” restaurant for the group.
Open for dinner service since Tuesday night, the restaurant is located in downtown Alpharetta, at 50 Canton Street, in River Rock Development’s Teasley Place mid-rise building.
The 3,331-square-foot space houses approximately 150 seats including a bar, outdoor dining, and private dining.
“We look to bring the vibrancy of the city – the steel, the noise, the action, the constant swirl of things – to the suburbs,” Ryan Pernice, RO Hospitality founder and owner, said in a press release Thursday.
“People should feel very far from their backyard grills when they’re here. They should feel like, ‘This is where the action is!’”
Coalition Food and Beverage serves American cuisine and “carefully crafted drinks,” according to the release.
Inside, the space offers exposed ceilings, industrial lighting, and wood-paneled walls.
Rustic steel-bordered window panes separate the dining spaces and provide diners with a clear view into the kitchen, where a Grillworks grill serves as the focal point for both the interior and the cuisine.
To the left of the kitchen is an L-shaped bar that offers indoor and outdoor seating, complete with two flat-screen TVs and expanded metal cabinets.
To the far right of the restaurant, sliding glass doors and curtains can create a private dining space to host up to 26 guests, complete with its own exterior entrance.
Lastly, the restaurant boasts a street-side patio that stretches alongside Canton Street and features a retractable awning for shaded dining during the warmer months.
The lead in the kitchen at Table & Main, executive chef Woolery “Woody” Back, a co-owner, is behind the wood-fired menu at Coalition Food and Beverage.
Wood-grilled signatures include St. Louis BBQ Pork Ribs (smoked coleslaw, hand-cut fries), Salmon (Verlasso filet, Carolina Gold rice, grilled squash and zucchini, pineapple salsa), and Bistro Steak (garlic mashed potato, grilled asparagus, crab hollandaise sauce).
Cocktails by beverage director and co-owner Daniel Pernice include The Other Canton Street Cooler (American Harvest Vodka, grenadine, lime, prosecco), the Goserita (gose-style ale, Cimarron Tequila, lime, agave nectar) and the Scorpion Kick (Denisen Byr Rum, clement creole shrubb, lemon, almond syrup).
A variety of local craft beer as well as a wine list that highlights vineyards in California, Washington, and Oregon, are also available.
Coalition Food and Beverage is open for dinner service Sunday through Thursday, from 4:30 to 9:30 p.m., and Friday through Saturday, from 4:30 tp 10:30 p.m.
Both lunch and brunch service will begin in weeks to follow.
