Team Behind Honey Bubble Tea Opening Midtown Tapas Restaurant

The Consulate will replace Red Apple Cafe at 10 10th Street.

Honey Bubble Tea husband and wife team Douglas Hines and Mei are looking to bring "global tapas and craft cocktails" to Midtown at the duo's newest venture, The Consulate.

"Mei is the mastermind behind the tea recipes and Honey Bubble, and will be working closely with the chef that is pegged for the Consulate," Hines told What Now Atlanta (WNA) in an email Friday.

The menu will be in "constant motion," comprised of flavors from around the world.

"India, Japan, London, Kenya, China, Ireland, Brazil and Greece can all be visited in one sitting at The Consulate. The countries and dishes will be in flux weekly, with select staple favorites being permanent."

The 3,300-square-foot space, at 10 10th Street, will be a "midcentury modern-fused" design with "global influences," according to Hines.

The Consulate will replace the now-shuttered Red Apple Cafe April 2016.

In related news, Hines is planning a second location of Honey Bubble Tea (the original opened in Virginia-Highland in 2012.)
