A permit application was recently filed with the City of Atlanta seeking the necessary approvals to build out the new Desta in the Upper Westside.

An estimated $275,000 would be spent converting the first-generation space into Desta including new partitions, doors, finishes, equipment, and gas piping, according to the plans.

The restaurant’s 2,430-square-foot space is suite 206 in Building B.

Desta has two existing locations, the original in North Druid Hills and a newish outpost in Emory Point.

Locations in Midtown and an outpost OTP in either Alpharetta, Marietta, or Roswell is in the works.

One of my favorite restaurants but I worry this kind of rapid development (esp in a pandemic, recessive economy) will tank all 4 locations. Ask Urban Cannibals…
