Fifth Group Restaurants Wednesday officially confirmed plans to open a second Alma Cocina in Atlanta.
The new Alma Conina will replace the now-shuttered Bricktop’s restaurant in the Terminus development.
Slated to open mid-2019, the restaurant and bar will bring Alma Cocina’s authentic Mexican cuisine to Buckhead in the 7,000-square-foot space at the corner of Peachtree and Piedmont.
“Buckhead has been a major area of growth for Fifth Group in the past several years – we opened South City Kitchen Buckhead in 2016 and Ecco Buckhead is slated to open later this year,” Robby Kukler, a Fifth Group partner, said in a press release.
“In our 25th year as a restaurant group, we’re excited to share our plans for an expanded presence further on Peachtree Street as we bring Alma Cocina’s energy and flair to the Buckhead neighborhood.”
Alma Cocina’s original location is situated downtown.
The Alma Cocina Buckhead announcement comes at the onset of Fifth Group Restaurants’ 25-year anniversary, marking the openings of South City Kitchen Avalon in Alpharetta, Ga. and Ecco Buckhead in the Phipps Plaza area.
South City Kitchen Avalon is set to open its doors for the first time Tuesday, January 16.
