The pizzeria, owned by Celebrity Chef Leslie Cohen, is expected to open fall 2017 in the mixed-use project.
The Larkin on Memorial project has secured another restaurant tenant, this time a pizzeria.
Firepit Pizza Tavern, a concept by Celebrity Chef Leslie Cohen, is expected to open fall 2017 in the mixed-use development, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page.
Firepit Pizza Tavern would join the already-announced Ramen Station and Taqueria del Sol in the Grant Park project owned by Paces Properties, the developer behind Krog Street Market.
Plans last week were filed with City of Atlanta to buildout Firepit Pizza Tavern, at 519 Memorial Drive, in a 2,981-square-foot space.
“Our tavern style pizzas are one-of-a-kind and homemade everyday in our authentic brick oven,” according to the restaurant’s website.
“We use crushed Italian plum tomatoes and top every pizza with our hand-grated blend of mozzarella, fontal and fontinella. Aside from that bomb-ass pizza we make, we also offer a variety appetizers, salads, and sandwiches.”
Cohen, winner of Food Network’s Cutthroat, did not immediately return What Now Atlanta’s request for comment.
Larkin on Memorial, a 63,000-square-foot mixed-use development, has secured deals with Ace Hardware, Grant Park Market, Ramen Station, Taqueria del Sol, Primrose School, and three other ground-level tenants that are “coming soon,” according to the project’s latest marketing materials.
