Madre Selva will be joining the dining lineup at Uptown Atlanta next spring.
The Latin American restaurant from entrepreneurs Francisco Puerta and Juan Segura opening at the center of Uptown’s Main Street will have Atlanta’s premier ceviche bar. The culinary team includes Executive Chef David Londoño Briñez, Master Sushi Chef Daniel Londoño Brinez and renowned bartender Alex Holender, who will create the first dedicated pisco bar in the city.
According to a press release, the menu will include dishes like Peruvian scallops, seafood papillotes, classic Peruvian ceviche and Nikkei stir fry. Two patios will seat up to 60 guests, who will be able to visit the restaurant for lunch, dinner and brunch.
“We believe in celebrating our rich cultural world and immersing ourselves in the vibrancy it has to offer, and this is the type of experience we will create at Madre Selva,” Puerto and Segura said in the press release. “We will bring authentic Latin coastal flavors to Atlanta that honor our heritage and share its culinary delights with the city. We are thrilled to bring this concept to life at Uptown and look forward to welcoming the community to experience Madre Selva’s captivating food, drink, and ambiance.”
