Agave Bandido, a Florida-based restaurant known for its Mexican cuisine with a “contemporary spin” was recently named a phase one tenant of the currently-under-construction High Street lifestyle development that’s slated to open next year in Central Perimeter near Central Park Dr off Peachtree Dunwoody Rd.
In a statement, founder of Wolverine Management –the hospitality group behind Agave Bandido – Mathew Baum said, “Given the success we’ve had with our first restaurant in South Florida, it was critical we chose the right location to expand our brand,” adding, “High Street presents the perfect opportunity to reach the same upscale, suburban consumers that have allowed us to flourish, so we are thrilled to begin welcoming guests in 2024.”
Showcasing a contemporary spin on Mexican cuisine served in an ultra-sleek and trendy setting, Agave Bandido has garnered acclaim in South Florida and will bring its first Atlanta location to High Street. In addition to its alluring dining area perfect for everything from elegant dinner dates to celebrating special occasions or business lunches, the space will feature a lively outdoor tequila bar, providing a variety of experiences within its footprint. Sharp-eyed guests might even discover “Maya,” the secret Mexican Tiki bar hidden inside.
High Street – which thus far has named six tenants including Puttshack, The Hampton Social, Ben & Jerry’s, Agave Bandido, Cuddlefish, and boutique beauty salon, Sugarcoat – is a $2 billion, transit-oriented, mixed-use district in the heart of Atlanta’s Central Perimeter. The project is being led by Boston-based real estate investment and management firm, GID Development.
James Linsley, president of GID Development said in a statement, “With each new tenant, we are thoughtfully crafting a vibrant, amenity-rich destination that will serve as the town center for Central Perimeter. From the outset, our focus has been on designing compelling and active public spaces and curating a collection of talented chefs and restaurants at High Street, and we have so much more in store as we move toward 2024.”
