Coming to Buckhead Village this summer is a new concept from Pietro Gianni and Stephen Peterson, two of the creators behind Storico.
Taking its name from the Rimini verbal expression that conveys the experience of “living with intensity and passion for one’s everyday life,” Yeppa & Co will celebrate the joy of living while featuring fare from the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. The new eatery will debut at 306 Buckhead Ave NE, in the Buckhead Village space that last housed Biltong Bar.
Yeppa & Co will dish up traditional Italian food and beverages. That means regional delicacies like cured meats, cheeses, and vegetables will be on the menu, as well as fish, pizzas, panini, piadina, pastas, grilled skewers, sliders, and more. A graphic describes the concept as a coffee shop, day market, and wine bar.
The eatery will be situated directly across from the newly opened Fetch Dog Park and feature a spacious indoor/outdoor patio that is accessible from Buckhead Avenue. A central bar with televisions will display both American and International sporting events. Yeppa & Co will also offer private dining.
Gianni and Peterson have made a name for themselves through the Storico restaurants. Together with Michael Patrick, they co-own Storico Fresco, Forza Storico, and Storico Vino, the wine bar that opened in spring 2021 on Peachtree Road.
Yeppa & Co is expected to open in summer 2022.
